Male Infertility - Treatment

Overview | Causes | Diagnosis | Treatment | FAQ

Infertility treatment depends on the cause, how long you've been infertile, the age of the partners as well as personal preferences. Some infertility causes may not be corrected. Medical or behavioral approaches are used to care for these problems. These fertility care methods are commonly used to ease male issues.

Increase frequency of intercourse. Men may experience improved fertility by having intercourse two to three times a week. Conversely, too-frequent ejaculation can lower sperm quality. An egg can be fertilized for up to 24 hours after ovulation, and sperm live in the female reproductive tract for up to 72 hours.

Common sexual problems. Dealing with impotence or premature ejaculation can lead to improved fertility.

Low sperm count. Typical management of low sperm count can be through surgery or hormones to correct the problem or use of assisted reproductive technology.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection. In cases where irregular semen analysis can be attributed to infertility, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be an option. Sperm is taken directly from the testicles or recovered from the bladder and injected into an egg in the laboratory setting.

Intrauterine insemination. An office procedure in which semen undergoes a "cleansing" process, after, the sperm are then placed into the uterus using a small plastic catheter inserted through the cervix. This method typically used when couples possess slightly abnormal semen analyses. In instances where the male partner has no sperm at all, or the numbers are extremely low, the process can also be performed using anonymous donor sperm.
