Understanding Male Infertility
When you and your partner decide to have a family, nothing can be more frustrating and disappointing than challenges with conceiving. Here’s the thing: Infertility can affect both women and men.
In terms of male infertility, the focus is typically on sperm count, sperm production, shape of the sperm, and movement of the sperm. Causes of male infertility can range from side effects to drugs/medications, lifestyle (obesity, smoking), and medical conditions, such as low testosterone or varicocele (swelling of veins in the testicles). If you suspect an issue with your fertility or if you’re unsure, talk to a doctor.
Our board-certified urologists can diagnose male infertility and provide guidance regarding your options. You’re not alone. Let us help!
