Male Factor Infertility
Male factor infertility is diagnosed in ~30-40% of patients, either as the sole diagnosis or in combination with one or more female factors. Many aspects of male physiology can influence male-factor infertility including hormonal production, sperm transport and sexual dysfunction. Each case has to be assessed individually and treated appropriately.
The evaluation of the male partner begins with a reliable semen analysis that will assess multiple characteristics of the sperm. The male partner should schedule a semen analysis, preferably during the same month his wife undergoes her infertility evaluation, as well as blood testing for infectious diseases and blood typing.
