Male Infertility

If you have been unsuccessful in conceiving a child despite multiple attempts, one of the possible causes can also be male infertility, which is surprisingly quite common. It is important to assess if the issue lies in male semen.

At our facility, we employ the latest tools and techniques to conduct the male infertility workup. Using non-invasive procedures to test the quality of the semen, we draw accurate analysis and suggest concrete treatments.

Male infertility risk factors

What is Male Infertility?

Male infertility is simply the weakness of the sperm. It is the inability of the sperm to function normally and pass through the female reproductive system to reach the egg for possible fertilization. There can be multiple causes for male infertility, including various health problems, low sperm count, various sexual issues, hormonal problems or functional issues.

The final diagnosis is made after a series of tests. The first step is to assess the quality of the semen. The sperm count, along with the shape and movement of the semen, is assessed. If abnormalities are found, then further investigation may be undertaken.

Possible Treatments

Please note that we don’t suggest IVF treatment for all as the first-line treatment. We recommend a range of different options which can be used to treat male infertility. They include lifestyle modifications, oral medications, inseminations, other non-invasive methods and rarely, surgery.

Conceiving a baby is influenced by a number of factors, including healthy sperm. After a woman’s age, male infertility is the second biggest cause of pregnancy delay and affects almost half of all couples having trouble conceiving.

Problems with male fertility account for about 40% of all cases of infertility. Find out how the male reproductive system works, and the impact of low sperm motility.

The good news is that the most common causes of male infertility are easily diagnosed and successfully bypassed with effective fertility treatments including IVF with Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Infertility is defined as a couple not conceiving after 12 months of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.

What Causes Infertility?

Female age is the most significant factor affecting a couple’s chance of conceiving. In 40% of infertile couples, the cause of infertility is attributed to a sperm factor. In another 40% of infertile couples, the cause of infertility is found within the female reproductive system, such as ovulation failure, tubal disease or endometriosis. One third of all infertile couples will have a combination of female and male factor infertility.
