Male Infertility

Male infertility is any health issue in a man that lowers the chances of his female partner getting pregnant. This is most often due to problems with sperm production or with sperm delivery.

What causes Male Infertility?

Making mature, healthy sperm that can travel depends on many things. Problems can stop cells from growing into sperm. Problems can keep the sperm from reaching the egg. Even the temperature of the scrotum may affect fertility.

These are the main causes of male infertility:

  • Sperm Disorders
  • Varicoceles
  • Retrograde Ejaculation
  • Immunonologic Infertility
  • Obstruction
  • Hormones
  • Medication
