About 15% of couples have trouble with getting pregnant. Male infertility is a factor in 40% of these cases. If you and your partner are struggling with infertility, you may wonder if it has to do with your fertility.
The most common issues that lead to infertility in men are problems with how the testicles work. Other factors include hormonal imbalances, blockages in the male reproductive organs, and a buildup of toxins in the body.
In some cases of infertility, a man produces less sperm than normal. The most common cause of this condition is varicocele, an enlarged vein in the testicle. Varicocele is present in about 40% of men with infertility.
If you think you may be infertile, there are a number of tests we can do to determine the cause. Once we know what the root cause of your infertility is, we can begin to treat it.
- Varicocele surgery
- In Vitro Fertilization (IVF): Sperm and egg are combined to form an embryo, and the embryo(s) is inserted into the uterus.
- Donor sperm with IVF: If the male sperm is not viable, donor sperm can be used.
- Hormone balancing: If infertility is the result of a hormone imbalance, we can work with you to correct the imbalance.
- Intrauterine insemination (IUI): Sperm is inserted directly into the uterus.
Sometimes, infertility is caused (or exacerbated) by lifestyle factors like diet, exercise, and habits like smoking.
