Hi Anitha
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Azoospermia is not incurable. First of all azoospermia need to be evaluated whether it is due to block in tubes or there is no production of sperms at all. If azoospermia is due to block in tubes ( Obstructive ) then sperm can be collected from testis through a needle(PESA/TESA). Even when there is no block in tubes and sperms are absent there are chances of getting sperms with the above procedure. After getting the sperms IVF/ICSI can be done. when all these fail and you want to have your own baby , you have patience and finance is not a concern then you can even opt for Micro-TESE. Micro-TESE is new technique in which sperms are retrieved by a surgery and then surgery can be done.. Before all these your husband need to be evaluated thoroughly by a urologist and hormonal investigations to be done. If finance is a problem then you can directly go for donor IUI .There is no problem in future because donor's name is not revealed ,only his characteristics are known. Adoption is last option ofcourse. Wish you all the best for treatment . Take care.
