About Male Infertility

Infertility is the inability to conceive after one year of trying. Approximately 15 to 20 percent of couples in the United States experience infertility, and approximately 40 percent of the cases are due to male infertility. A male may be infertile due to blockages of the vessels through which sperm travels, reduced sperm production or issues with the quality of the sperm, hormonal imbalances, or issues with the testicles. 

It is important to remember that more than half of male infertility cases are treatable.
