In vitro fertilization basics part 32

Side effects and risks for men having surgical sperm retrieval (SSR)

About 5-10% of in vitro fertilization procedures involve surgical sperm retrieval from the testes. Nausea and not remembering the procedure are common side effects of the sedative and narcotic  medications used during surgical sperm retrieval (SSR)

  • Respiratory depression

The medications used for surgical sperm retrieval can reduce the amount of air you breathe and thus oxygen level during and after surgical sperm retrieval collection with a pulse oximeter. If your oxygen level falls too low the doctor will stop and give oxygen. Very rarely you may require emergency medications. Brain damage and death are theoretically possible, but so rare  that no figures are available for surgical sperm retrieval.
