Male infertilityHaving a family is one of the greatest hopes and dreams of many couples. But sometimes fertility problems interfere with these plans. About 15 percent of couples who have not had children, or who are unable to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse, have such problems. In about 30 percent of the cases it is due to male infertility alone, and male fertility problems are a contributing factor in another 20 percent of infertile couples. Today advanced diagnostic techniques can identify causes of male infertility more quickly, more accurately and more simply than ever, while a host of state-of-the-art microsurgical techniques offer new and more effective options for treatment of male infertility. If you are concerned about fertility issues, we can offer a full range of diagnosis and treatment protocols for most causes of male infertility.
Male fertility problems can be caused by a variety of factors, from medical and physiological to psychological. Even before any diagnostic male fertility testing is performed, a complete physical examination should be performed and a health and reproductive history taken. The physical examination may reveal potential causes of infertility, such as varicocele, while a medical history can reveal contributing factors such as use of certain medications or supplements, or medical conditions that may contribute to infertility. Subsequent diagnostic testing for male infertility may uncover hormonal or genetic causes, or physical problems such as blocked ducts in the reproductive system that prevent viable sperm from mixing with semen. In cases where infertility is confirmed, sometimes a simple change of lifestyle is all that is required to correct the problem. Medication can help patients with sexual dysfunction. Surgical procedures also offer a range of treatment options for treating male infertility.
