Depending on the diagnosis, your recommended male infertility treatment may be medical or surgical. Medical treatment would be directed at correcting a hormone imbalance or toward stimulating sperm production. Surgical therapy would be aimed at relieving obstruction of the tubes that carry sperm through the body, or correcting a problem associated with dilated veins around the testis that can reduce sperm production by increasing the temperature around the testicle.
