Male infertility is involved in approximately 40% of the 2.6 million infertile couples in the U.S., according to the National Institute of Health. Almost half of these men have irreversible infertility and cannot father children, and a small number of these cases are caused by a treatable medical condition.
The evaluation of men for fertility begins with his fertility history, examining elements such as his past reproductive history (e.g. has he ever had children) and a current complete semen analysis to determine sperm count and motility.
We recommend that you find a physician with specific training and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of male infertility. Usually this will be a urologist specializing in andrology.
