Facts About Male Infertility

Male infertility accounts for 40-50% of infertility in females, according to Lipshultz’s article, “Male Factor Infertility.”

This directly refers to women’s inability to get pregnant, due to male deficiencies in the semen and semen quality, low sperm production, or blockages preventing delivery of sperm. Currently, about 15% of couples are infertile, meaning they have had unprotected sex for a year or more without being able to conceive a child.

Diagnosis

A thorough past medical history will be evaluated, including sexual frequency, loss of libido, headaches, past family history and past surgeries.  Then an exam will be performed on the penis, scrotum, testicles, rectum, and anus.

Usually, two separate semen analyses are performed to diagnose male infertility.  A blood test may also be done to check for hormone imbalances, testosterone levels, and other genetic issues.

Treatment

Several different medication options are available.  Antibiotics may be used to treat an infection in the reproductive tract. Medications for erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation may be used as well. Along with hormone replacement.

If medication does not work, treatments may include intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF), and intracytoplasmatic sperm injection (ICSI).  Or you doctor may discuss options of using sperm from a donor or adoption.
