Male infertility is any health condition that lowers a man's chances of getting his female partner pregnant. When a couple is diagnosed with infertility, most of the time, the thoughts run to the woman that she is barren. But, in reality, infertility problems are equally due to male and female conditions.
Statistics suggest that 35 to 40 percent of cases of infertility are caused by male conditions, another 35 to 40 percent by female conditions, and 20 to 30 percent of infertility cases are a combination of the two. The rest of the small number of cases are due to unknown infertility reasons. Men diagnosed with male infertility often have to fight emotional complexes such as anger, guilt, and low self-esteem. A couple facing infertility issues, be it due to male factor or female, need to communicate with a doctor and get timely treatment.

The treatment of male infertility depends on the cause of the problem. Treatment of male infertility can broadly be classified into 3 types:

CAH is a rare cause of male infertility. It involves congenital problems in certain enzymes. CAH causes abnormal hormone production. CAH is most often diagnosed by evaluating the steroid level in the blood and urine. CAH can be treated with hormone replacement.

Surgical treatment for male infertility is recommended in case of infertility caused due to the following conditions:
While most cases of male infertility can be diagnosed and treated, there are also conditions, where it becomes difficult to tell what is the exact cause of infertility in a man. Such conditions are known as ‘idiopathic’ or ‘non-specific’ male infertility. In cases where the cause is not clearly determined, or where no other forms of treatment work, infertility specialists suggest the patient undergoes the following infertility treatment techniques.
If all other infertility treatment fails to provide desired results, there are ways by which a couple can get pregnant without having sex. These methods are called assisted reproductive techniques (ARTs). Based on the specific type of infertility and the cause, the infertility specialist may suggest any of the following ARTs.
If you are facing any signs and symptoms indicative of male infertility, you can consult with either a urologist or an infertility specialist. At the initial stage, the person can consult a urologist to determine the root cause of the problem. If the infertility issue is due to any problem in the male reproductive system or male genitals, it can be diagnosed and treated by a urologist. If the infertility issue lies in the sperm health of the person, it is treated by an infertility specialist.
Yes, in a very small number of cases, genetic disorders can contribute to male infertility. According to a study published by the National Institute of Health, genetic disorders cause 2%-8% of male infertility cases.
Yes, diabetes can directly affect fertility in both males and females. However, the chances of infertility are higher in males. This happens due to oxidative stress caused due to high glucose levels that damage the DNA of the sperm. High blood sugar can cause the natural death of the sperm cells which makes it hard for the man to make their female partners pregnant.
No, masturbation has no linkage to male infertility. There are no scientifically or medically proven records that state masturbation as a cause of male infertility.
Becoming fertile from infertile is almost impossible. But that does not mean you cannot father a child in your life. Your doctor might suggest using donor sperm or egg for any form of assisted reproductive technologies to conceive a child. Our caring team at Pristyn Care can help you with your fertility health concerns.
The first and the foremost indicator of a man’s infertility is his inability to get his female partner pregnant. But this can only be confirmed after both the man and the woman is evaluated by an infertility specialist.

Constant pain, lump or swelling in the testicle area, recurrent respiratory infections and inability to smell or taste may also indicate that a male is infertile.

But, at the same time, not all gardes of varicoceles affect sperm production. As many as 40% of men can help his female partner get pregnnat after varicocele correction depending on the degree of improvement in sperm count and movement (motility). If you have been diagnosed with varicocele, it is best to speak to a urologist and get timely treatment before the condition hampers your fertility.
