Sometimes a man after a sexual intercourse or masturbation can find out that his semen was gone. The causes of aspermia, as doctors call the absence of sperm, can be different, but they all involve serious disruption in work genital organs caused by nervous overexertion or inflammatory processes of the prostate gland, epididymis, injuries. Sometimes the culprit of the lack of sperm are medicines and some dietary supplements.

If a man has lost sperm, he can not become a father until he has recovered the functions of the body responsible for the production of male sex cells.

Recovery can occur only after treatment. With chronic diseases and neglected forms, the functions are never restored.


The diagnosis of "aspermia set by the doctor on the basis of the analysis of sperm, indicates that the man has come full infertility.You do not need to make this diagnosis yourself. For this, there are andrologists who conduct diagnostics and treatment of male diseases, after which everything can change for the better.

Why did this happen?

The reasons why sperm disappeared and can not stand out for a long time, maybe a few. Congenital causes of aspermia do not allow sperm to appear. If it was and disappeared, most often the causes become acquired diseases, which were not treated at the time.

Violations of sperm excretion can cause:

  • taking certain medicines and dietary supplements;
  • work with paintwork or oil refining products;
  • inflammatory processes of the epididymis;
  • Sexual tuberculosis;
  • chronic prostatitis;
  • dystonia of the vas deferens;
  • pathology of the brain and spinal cord;
  • surgery on the pelvic organs.

With inflammation of the appendages testicles lose the ability to produce seminal fluid, because inflammatory processes in the tissues do not allow the glands to function. Various traumas, tumors, scar changes can squeeze the vas deferens, and sperm form, but can not go outside. This leads to various operations performed on the genitourinary system of men.

Operations on the spine cause the sperm to cease to form. This is explained by the fact that nerve endings are injured or irritated, which begin to have a negative effect on the genitourinary system as a whole.

A man who has had infectious diseases that cause inflammation of the brain envelopes, such as meningitis or tick-borne encephalitis, may find that his sperm has disappeared. It takes some time for the functions of the brain and the reproductive system to recover.

Disorders of the psyche are a common cause of the lack of ejaculate. With prolonged depressions and stress, childbearing functions are blocked not only in humans, but also in animals. Often the psychological factor works during the first unsuccessful sexual experience. Traumatic events associated with the conduct of sexual intercourse, cause the disappearance of sperm.

How is the diagnosis of "aspermia"

After an appeal to the andrologist, a diagnosis is made to find out why sperm does not excrete. To do this, use a laboratory study of the ejaculate under a microscope. The study helps to find out which organ is not working. To clarify the reason why sperm is lost, spend:

  • spermogram;
  • analysis of blood flow in the vessels of the penis;
  • Analysis of urine;
  • detection of sexually transmitted diseases;
  • ultrasound examination of the prostate, seminal vesicles and testes;
  • testicular biopsy.

All this will help to determine the true cause of the development of pathology.

Is it possible to correct the current situation?

If sperm is lost, then the ways of its recovery will depend on whether it will be possible to get rid of the causes that caused it during treatment. Aspermia is often treated. Infringements can be corrected after the reasons of absence of a semen will be found out.


If the discharge of sperm ceased during the admission of a man with medicines or dietary supplements, then they must be canceled.

If the sperm is lost due to a mental disorder or irritation of nerve endings, then these effects are most often reversible. After treatment or the expiration of some time, sperm can begin to form and its quality becomes normal.

Aspermia caused by sexually transmitted infections requires antibacterial therapy. With chronic prostatitis, ohrite, caused by candidiasis, chlamydia or venereal diseases, the cause of the disease is treated and then the consequences go away. Treatment will help if the diseased organs do not have time to atrophy or irreversible processes have not started in them. In the dystonia of the vas deferens, surgical intervention is used.

If the desired effect in treatment was not achieved, then, if desired, become a father turn to centers that use reproductive technologies.

Treatment of a pathology such as the disappearance of sperm is a long process, and not always successful. It is best not to lead your body to such complications and pathologies. Do not engage in self-treatment of sexual infections. You should contact the venereologist for advice if there are suspicious discharges. He will determine the cause of the symptoms and choose a treatment regimen. The doctor can refer to another specialist for treatment if the disease does not belong to his qualification.



In order not to have to treat all sorts of sexual infections for a long time, it is necessary to comply with sanitary and hygienic standards. One sexual partner and the rejection of casual sexual relations keeps a man's health for many years to come.
