Male infertility refers to underlying health problems and/or structural abnormalities that affect a man’s ability to conceive.
Several factors may contribute to male infertility, including:
If you and your partner have tried to conceive for more than a year and you haven’t had any success, contact the team at CARE Fertility.
Consider male infertility treatments at CARE Fertility if you and your partner have unprotected sex but struggle to conceive. That’s especially true if you have normal libido, plenty of energy, and exercise regularly, but your partner fails to get pregnant.
Underlying medical issues, like blockages and low testosterone, don’t always present obvious symptoms. After a physical exam, a review of your health records, and a series of lab tests, your CARE Fertility provider can determine the underlying cause.
At CARE Fertility, a male fertility treatment visit begins with a discussion of your lifestyle, including if you use tobacco or drink alcohol, if you’ve had a vasectomy or pelvic surgery, and if you take prescription medications or supplements.
Make sure to answer your provider’s questions honestly, because your responses play an important role in guiding treatment.
After gathering that information, your provider orders semen analysis. During semen analysis, your provider assesses a sample of your semen under a microscope. Semen analysis evaluates several factors, including:
Semen analysis takes about an hour and provides key insights about your fertility.
To ensure an accurate semen analysis, refrain from ejaculating for 2-5 days prior. The team at CARE Fertility provides you with a sterile collection container for storing the sample.
If semen analysis finds low sperm counts, the team can recommend fertility treatments that align with your budget and needs.
