Male Fertility Treatments

Male infertility factors can derive from a number of causes and ultimately impact the ability of an otherwise healthy couple to become pregnant. Causes of male infertility can stem from past injury, certain types of illness, hereditary / genetic diseases or lifestyle choices.

The first step in assessing male infertility is typically with a semen analysis and a physical examination. The semen analysis looks at various factors – the number of sperm, the percentage that are moving well (motility), the percentage that are normal in shape (morphology). A semen analysis is best performed after 3-5 days of abstinence

Sometimes, blood tests will also be performed to check the hormones associated with sperm production, or to check some genetic factors. These tests will help ascertain what possible procedures could help a couple to become pregnant. There are several treatment options available to overcome challenges such as low sperm mobility, poor morphology, low sperm count or even a lack of sperm.
