During treatment

Depending on the nature of your infertility problem, your doctor may perform either a needle biopsy using local anaesthesia to get small pieces of tissue from your testicles or an open biopsy using a general anaesthetic to surgically remove pieces of tissue from your testicles (see Chapter 5) — in both cases so that the embryologist can retrieve sperm from this tissue for ICSI (see Chapter 7). About five to ten out of every 1,000 sperm retrieval procedures result in a complication from either bleeding or infection. The risk of complications is lower for needle biopsy than for open biopsy. In addition, having a general anaesthetic poses a very small health risk.
