What Is Male Infertility?

Male infertility refers to issues with the male reproductive system that prevent viable pregnancies from developing within the female reproductive system. The most common cause of male infertility is poor quality sperm or difficulty with sperm production.

Other causes include hormonal problems, blockages in the tubes of the reproductive system, or poor function of the testicles. Our fertility specialists can help determine the cause of infertility and recommend the best course(s) of treatment.

Prevalence & Risk Factors

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 15% of couples worldwide are affected by fertility issues - half due to male infertility. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 7% of men in the United States between ages 15-49 have experienced fertility issues during their lifetime.

Risk factors for male infertility include age, lifestyle choices (such as smoking or drug use), medical conditions (such as diabetes or cancer), environmental factors (such as exposure to toxins or radiation), and certain medications (such as chemotherapy drugs used to treat cancer).
