Male infertility contributes to about 40% of cases of infertility. What to do about it

·1 min

When opposite-sex couples struggle to get pregnant, the focus is often on the woman. But male infertility is a significant issue that can lead to personal crises for men who associate their virility with self-worth. About 1 in 8 couples in the US experience difficulties in conceiving, with male infertility contributing to 40% of cases. It is important for both partners to undergo fertility testing after a certain period of unsuccessful attempts to conceive. Lifestyle factors, health conditions, and environmental exposures can impact male fertility. Various tools are available for men to assess their sperm quality, but consulting with a specialist is crucial for a comprehensive evaluation. Treatment options include lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements, varicocele repair, medications, and assisted reproductive techniques. The conversation around male infertility needs to be openly discussed to raise awareness and provide support.
