Male factor medical conditions cause up to 40 percent of fertility issues in couples. In fact, male infertility is so common that nearly 1 in 10 men will experience difficulties. We believe it is vital that men get tested along with women, as soon as a couple is ready to explore fertility treatments.
Causes of Male Factor Infertility
Male factor fertility issues in men can be caused by many issues, the most common being anatomic problems, erectile dysfunction, hormonal issues and issues with the number, motility or shape of the sperm. We have great success treating many of the problems that affect our male patients.

Male factor infertility can also be treated by Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) for couples using In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Injecting a single sperm directly into an egg; often used during IVF to ensure fertilization of eggs.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
A process of fertilization where the egg and the sperm are combined in a laboratory to create a viable embryo, which will be implanted into the uterus. More commonly, IVF refers to the entire treatment process. “In Vitro” means “in glass” and refers to the glass of the laboratory dish.
