Are the two types of azoospermia that exist diagnosed in the same way?

Yes, the diagnostic tests are the same. In addition to the semen analysis, which indicates the absence of sperm, the specialist will perform a detailed examination of the genital tract to intuit whether or not there is testicular production.

On the other hand, a hormonal analysis will be done to see if we are dealing with a case of secretory azoospermia due to hormonal alteration.

Another test that allows distinguishing the type of azoospermia is the testicular biopsy, which will inform us of whether or not there is sperm production.
