Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Azoospermia detected on semen analysis.

This could be due to failure of your testicle to produce sperms due to side effect of Corticosteroides which you have been taking since 29 years or due to blockage in tube (Vas Difference) that transmits sperm from testicle to urethra.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical evaluation .You may need to undergo Teticular biopsy to confirm spermatogenesis in testicles .
If positive you have to get radiological test of Vaso Vasogram done to rule out blockage of the tubes.
Further treatment will depend upon results of these tests
