Azoospermia is a major cause of male infertility, either obstructive or nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA). However, such couples should be offered surgical sperm retrieval to enable them to become parents with their own gametes. Cases of NOA will have higher retrieval rate with microsurgical testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE), even though, in some cases, it may be a repeat procedure.

Presenting here a case of successful twin gestation after intracytoplasmic sperm injection with sperms retrieved successfully by micro-TESE after a previous failed frozen embryo transfer with a very poor retrieval by a testicular sperm aspiration in a case of NOA.
