Male infertility issues are responsible for about one-third of infertility problems among couples we see at our Manhattan fertility clinc. Male infertility can range from a decrease in sperm production to a physical blockage that prevents sperm from reaching its destination. A few of the most common issues responsible for male infertility are listed below:
- Infection and Environmental factors (acute and/or chronic infections of the prostate or testicle environmental toxins, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, etc.)
- Surgery or vasectomy
- Genetic disorders
- Hormonal imbalances
- Anatomic issues (blockages, varicoceles, tumors)
- Direct injury (testicular or pelvic trauma, heat, irradiation, etc.)
