Brief Answer: Post viral infection status, dont worry Detailed Answer: Dear sir/ madam Welcome to healthcare magic I read your quiery and reviewed your reports, one thing I can tell you that you are in post infective recovery state where the concentrations of IGG will be more and IgM will be less.. it is a recovery phase and every other parameters are normal.. but you didnt do your platelet count estimation, it is a vital But as per noe you dont need to worry, continue your current antibiotics and other medicines as per the indication. Eat good and healthy diet Everything will be fine Thanks

Dear Doctor,
I am a male, 30 years old and married 2 years ago. Recently doctor diagnosed azoospermia. I used to take corticosteroids (prednisone) for skin infection since 2 years. Even about 45 days back also I took that medicine. Medicine is one of the reasons for azoospermia? There was no suspect in VDRL, HbsAg, HIV, TSH, TB antibodies IgM, complete blood profile tests and are normal. No one my family having azoospermic condition. One doctor is advicing to go for TESA. Is TESA necessary without fidning the right cause of Azoospermia. Is Azoospermia curable by medicine? Do you prescribe any doctor in Hyderabad, India?
Thank you for understanding my problem
