EEJ Services are a unique offering at the Men’s Fertility Center of Austin. Fewer than 50 medical facilities in the Unites States possess the technology to provide this service that allows men unable to ejaculate to conceive a child. Conditions that lead to an inability to ejaculate (anejaculation) include:
- spinal cord injury (SCI)
- multiple sclerosis
- severe erectile dysfunction
- diabetes, and
- following certain abdominal surgery
Electroejaculation (EEJ) is safe and effective, sperm can be used for intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization. The procedure is generally performed under a general anesthetic although some patients can be treated in the office without anesthesia.
The cost of the procedure ranges from : $4500-6500.
Patients are first assessed as appropriate candidates with an office visit. In many cases laboratory tests are performed. We would like all female partners to have a fertility doctor that has examined them. Those patients that are coming from outside of Austin may request an initial telephone consultation.
