How common a problem is male factor infertility?

back to FAQ list

In 60% of all couples experiencing infertility, a male factor is involved. It is primarily a male factor in 40% of these couples and in an additional 20% of these couples, it is a combination of male and female factors. Therefore, when a couple is having trouble conceiving it makes sense not only to evaluate the woman but to evaluate the man as well.

Sperm takes three months to produce and mature and there is often a 4-6 month delay between treatment of the man and resulting changes in the sperm. Since the evaluation of the woman may take several months, it is recommended that a comprehensive and accurate semen analysis be scheduled at the outset in order to evaluate the male partner. Treatment of the man can then occur at the same time as treatment of the woman and there will be no additional delay once the woman’s treatment is completed.
