OBJECTIVE: To assess the possibility of achieving a pregnancy in the wife of a patient suffering from idiopathic anejaculation who failed to respond to therapeutical modalities such as psychotherapy, sex therapy, and vibrostimulation. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: The IVF program at the Leuven University Fertility Centre. PATIENT(S): A patient suffering from idiopathic anejaculation. INTERVENTION(S): Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in combination with electroejaculation. MEAN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Fertility rate, cleavage rate, clinical pregnancy. RESULT(S): Two IVF procedures were performed of which the second resulted in an ongoing pregnancy and the delivery of a healthy boy. CONCLUSION(S): Electroejaculation may offer fertility chances in a patient suffering from idiopathic anejaculation resistant to conventional treatment modalities. When sperm quality shows very low motility, ICSI should be offered to improve pregnancy chances.
