Understanding Male Infertility

Male infertility refers to the inability of a male to achieve pregnancy in a fertile female. This can be due to several factors, including problems with sperm production, sperm function, or the anatomy of the male reproductive system.

 

Common causes of male infertility include

  • Low Sperm Count: Not producing enough sperm to fertilize an egg.
  • Poor Sperm Motility: Sperm that don’t swim well enough to reach the egg.
  • Abnormal Sperm Shape (Morphology): Sperm that have abnormal shape and size, making it difficult to move and fertilize the egg.
  • Blockages: Obstructions in the tubes that carry sperm.
  • Hormonal Imbalances: Issues with the hormones that regulate sperm production.
  • Genetic Disorders: Conditions that affect the production or development of sperm.
  • Environmental Factors: Excessive heat, toxins, or other environmental factors that can affect sperm production

 

Symptoms of Male Infertility

In many cases, male infertility may not present any obvious symptoms. However, some men may experience:

  • Erectile dysfunction or ejaculation problems
  • Pain or swelling in the testicles
  • Decreased facial or body hair growth

 

Diagnosis of Male Infertility

At Felix Hospital, our expert fertility specialists use a range of diagnostic tests to evaluate male infertility, including:

  • Semen Analysis: To evaluate sperm count, motility, morphology, and other factors.
  • Hormonal Testing: To assess hormone levels that affect sperm production.
  • Genetic Testing: To check for genetic abnormalities that may affect fertility.
  • Scrotal Ultrasound: To detect any structural problems in the testicles or surrounding areas.
  • Testicular Biopsy: In some cases, a small sample of testicular tissue may be taken for analysis.

 

Treatment Options

Treatment for male infertility depends on the underlying cause and may include:

  • Lifestyle Changes: Improving diet, reducing alcohol intake, quitting smoking, and avoiding overheating the testicles.
  • Medications: Hormonal treatments or medications to improve sperm production and function.
  • Surgery: To correct obstructions, varicoceles, or other physical problems.
  • Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART): Including intrauterine insemination (IUI) treatment or in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
  • Donor Sperm: In cases where there is no sperm or severe sperm abnormalities.
     

Can male infertility be prevented?

You can lower your risk of male infertility by taking these steps:

  • Avoiding or quitting smoking, drinking alcohol, and using non-prescription drugs.
  • Limiting your exposure to harmful chemicals.
  • Keeping up to date with vaccines for viruses that can affect fertility. Avoiding prolonged exposure of your testicles to heat.
  • Maintaining a healthy weight by avoiding high-fat foods.
  • Discussing other risk factors with a healthcare provider and finding ways to reduce your risk.

If you have cancer, talk to a healthcare provider about sperm banking before starting treatment.
 

What Can I expect if I have male infertility?

Having male infertility doesn't mean you'll never be able to have a biological child. There are treatment options available that can help. By consulting with a healthcare provider, you and your partner can explore ways to increase your chances of conception. However, the success rates of these treatments depend on various factors, including the cause of the infertility, your age, and your partner’s age.
