Male partners or sperm donors are critical to the success of fertility care. We begin by providing a detailed evaluation of sperm function. If the specimen is adequate, options include timed intercourse with controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, intrauterine insemination (IUI), and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Male factor infertility is due to challenges with making sperm (low or no sperm count), the ability of the sperm to reach the egg (motility) and fertilization of the egg. There are many treatments to correct these problems, from surgery to general health and lifestyle changes.
