This is a largely ignored aspect associated with infertility in couples. In fact, the male partner is the sole cause in 40% of all infertile couples and a contributing cause in 20%. Despite the male partner being at least partly responsible in about 60 percent of infertile couples, infertility evaluations have traditionally focused on women because women tend to seek gynecological care and men often are reluctant to seek advice.
Causes of male infertility range from hormonal disturbances to physical problems to psychological problems and a thorough diagnosis is necessary to determine them. Reasons include low sperm production, poor sperm quality and testicular damage resulting in an inability of the testicle to produce sperm. We at Manipal Fertility offer various treatment options to address the issue.
