Understanding the Causes of Male Infertility

Overcoming Male Infertility at Palm Beach Fertility Center

Men who wish to become fathers may be surprised and disheartened when after trying for at least 12 months their partner still cannot conceive. As a man ages, achieving and maintaining fertility can be difficult. Whether you have already struggled with infertility in the past or you want to take preventive measures to protect your fertility, our team at Palm Beach Fertility Center can help.

Understanding Male Infertility

Men are subject to a very different set of physical attributes that can prevent successful impregnation. Environmental factors such as pollutants and excessive heat exposure commonly cause low sperm counts. Lifestyle also plays a role in male fertility. Smoking and/or drug abuse, exposure to certain venereal diseases, and frequent sauna or hot tub use can also adversely affect fertility.

The specific issues which can lead to male infertility include:

  • Retrograde ejaculation, where semen is forced into the bladder at ejaculation
  • Abnormal or absent sperm
  • Erectile dysfunction, or the inability to have and sustain an erection

Fertility Tips for Men

Fortunately, even if you face infertility struggles, there are still many treatment options available to you. It may be as simple as quitting smoking or changing your lifestyle, or you may need to undergo specific procedures to increase your likelihood of conception.

If you have just started your journey to conceive, there are many steps you can take to encourage your ability to have a successful pregnancy. This includes quitting smoking or avoiding smoking, avoiding drinking alcohol, and consuming healthy foods and vitamins.
