Male Infertility Symptoms

The only true symptom of male infertility is the inability to conceive a child. Many men aren't sure when to see a doctor for this issue, however. Many doctors believe that if a couple has been trying to conceive a child for a year (12 months) or more without success, it is time to seek fertility testing and treatment. Some doctors recommend a shorter timespan for couples over the age of 30, typically six months instead of 12.

Some other men's health issues may be enough reason to contact a fertility doctor. Potential infertility symptoms might include:

Male Infertility Causes

There are many different potential male infertility causes. The most well-known cause of male infertility is low sperm count, when not enough healthy sperm are produced. Sperm can also be affected by low motility, in which movement is insufficient to penetrate the egg.

Other possible causes of male infertility include:

This list represents just a portion of the issues that can contribute to male infertility.

Male Infertility Treatment

Infertility treatment for men often begins with a sperm count test. Infertile men typically have fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen. Sometimes a total sperm count test is performed; infertile men typically have fewer than 39 million sperm per total ejaculate.

Treatment for this issue will vary depending on the root cause. In the case of a low sperm count, assisted reproductive technology (ART) might be used. A common example of ART is in-vitro fertilization.

Other treatment possibilities include:

  • Surgery: Most often used to correct a variocele or obstructed reproductive system.
  • Sexual dysfunction treatment: If the infertility arises from erectile dysfunction or problems with ejaculation, treatments exist for those issues.
  • Hormone replacement : Some male infertility stems from abnormally low levels of testosterone or other hormones.
