Our Palm Beach fertility center helps couples overcome male infertility

Do you know someone who would rather spend Father’s Day changing diapers than fishing or golfing? Dr. Mark Denker and the staff at Palm Beach Fertility Center recognize the 1 in 8 couples who struggle with infertility in this country, and the men who feel especially disappointed when another child-focused holiday approaches without a positive pregnancy result.

Male infertility factors will impact nearly half of all couples that we see in our Boca Raton fertility center. Oftentimes, a simple fix and knowing the right family-building tools to use will make a world of difference.

Is male infertility throwing a wrench in your plans to get pregnant?

Dr. Denker will discuss your concerns and focus on finding the cause. Our website provides a summary of the most effective tool in uncovering male infertility – a semen analysis.

Problem that needs fixing: Unexplained infertility

Fertility tool: Evaluation and semen analysis

If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than a year, or six months if the female partner is over 35, it’s time to see a fertility specialist. One of the first steps we will take at our Baco Raton fertility center is ordering a semen analysis. The results will help eliminate male factors, or give us a plan for male infertility treatment.

Problem that needs fixing: Performance issues

Fertility tool: Understanding, support and (possibly) medication

Trying to get pregnant sounds like fun, right? Now add a timed and high-stakes baby-making agenda, and recreation feels more like work. A recent study confirmed that men feel pressure to perform while TTC. Of the 265 men undergoing infertility treatment, nearly half (42 percent) reported some problems with erectile dysfunction. In addition, excessive alcohol, tobacco and cocaine and certain medications can lead to erectile dysfunction. Don’t feel shy about asking a fertility specialist for advice.

Problem that needs fixing: An unhealthy lifestyle

Fertility tool: Awareness and modified habits

Men who are hoping to celebrate Father’s Day should pay attention to fertility boosters such as maintaining a healthy BMI, avoiding binge drinking and Low T treatments, stopping smoking and refraining from sitting in hot tubs and saunas.

Male infertility is common, but fixable. If you are trying to get pregnant and want nothing more than to celebrate Father’s Day in 2016, contact the experts in home building at our Boca Raton fertility center.
