Male Infertility

About a third of all infertility cases are due to male fertility issues. These can range from low sperm count or sperm abnormalities to hormonal imbalances or problems related to reproductive anatomy. Health and lifestyle factors such as stress, weight, and alcohol consumption can also play a role. The good news is that we provide infertility treatment options for most causes.

Male Infertility Causes

Some of the barriers faced by men trying to achieve pregnancy with their partner may include azoospermia (lack of sperm) or varicocele (an enlargement of veins in the testicles). In addition, the presence of anti-sperm antibodies, and abnormalities related to sperm count, sperm motility, or semen volume, consistency, or pH, can be problematic. Or there may be a need to undo the effects of a vasectomy.

Causes of Male Infertility

Semen Analysis

A semen analysis is a test that tells your doctor the number of sperm in your semen (your sperm count), whether they are normal (morphology), and how well they swim (motility).

Low Sperm Count

A low sperm count may be caused by certain medications or a medical problem such as a blocked duct, low testosterone level, or a condition in which sperm back up into the bladder. Fever can also reduce sperm count. In some cases, you may have enough sperm, but your sperm may not swim well enough to reach the egg. Also, sperm that are not normal in shape may not be able to penetrate and fertilize the egg. We can treat many of these problems.
