If his hormonal balance is off he could possibly have hypogonadism and hormone therapy, HCG injection, is often used to balance hormones so sperm production starts.

Genetic screening can also be done to see if the no sperm production is due to a genetic abnormality.

Testicular biopsy is an option. A small piece of tissue is removed from the testicle to check for sperm production. If sperm is found it can be using for in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Further workups on his end are a must to get to the bottom of the azoospermia, no sperm in the ejaculate. Seek an urolgoist with fellowship training in male factor infertility, might have to travel for the best possible care.
