Male subfertility is an important clinical entity. It entails direct medical, financial, and psychological impact on the couple. A standardization of protocol in its management is yet to be achieved. Detailed workup of the males presenting with subfertility is necessary to elucidate the etiology and prognosticate the disease. Microsurgical reconstruction holds an important place in the management of obstructive disease of male genital tract. With the advent of microsurgical sperm retrieval techniques, couples have a chance to become the biological parents in the cases of nonobstructive azoospermia. All available treatment options should be given to patients to help them achieve a long-term possibility of spontaneous conceptions.
