Brief Answer:
testicular biopsy

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM

Thank you for writing to us.
The biopsy done - showed no sperms.
If we can get more details on the cell type - like spermatid were seen or any other cell type we can see if there is any possibility
Also , an idea of the blood hormone levels such as FSH / Total testosterone - if they were done ( ideally done now with 3 months)

This will help us to understand the condition better and offer some treatment

Hope to have answered your query
