Title: Infertility and Men - What You Should Know

Infertility and Men- What You Should Know
2
  • Infertility has been thought of as the womans
    problem. But with changing times, it turns out
    that men are equally infertile as women. About
    1/3rd of every three cases are because of the man
    only. So, infertility is defined in clinical
    terms as the inability for men and women to
    achieve pregnancy even after 1 year of trying
    without using any birth controls. Studies show
    that after a year of unprotected sex, about 15
    percent of couples are not able to conceive, and
    after 2 years, 10 percent still have problems.
  • A lot of medical conditions and various factors
    contribute to fertility problems and a particular
    case may have a single reason, several reasons or
    no identifiable reason at all. In all, one-third
    of infertility cases are due to male reproductive
    problems, one third by female reproductive issues
    and the other one third by both male and female
    issues or by some unknown reasons.

Causes of infertility in men
  • The most common problem that results in men's
    infertility are the issues that affect how
    testicles function. Other issues are hormonal
    imbalances or blockage in male reproductive
    organs. In around 50 percent of the cases, the
    cause of infertility in men cannot be known.
  • But the major causes of infertility for men are
  • Problem with the sperm-like low sperm count
  • Hormonal issues
  • Obstruction to the passage of sperm
  • Functional issues like impotence

What are the male infertility treatment options?
  • The ultimate aim of any male infertility
    treatment is to achieve a successful pregnancy.
    Ideally, the cause of infertility is not
    reversible and conception can be from natural sex
    only. Here are some common infertility
    treatments
  • Repair of varicocele with surgery- to block the
    abnormal veins. This results in considerable
    improvement in fertility rate.
  • Obstruction in sperm transport plumbing may be
    corrected surgically in some cases.
  • Hormonal issues can be treated with surgery or
    medicine in some cases.
