Assessment of male fertility and infertility

Start by seeing a urologist. He or she will perform a physical exam and ask questions about your lifestyle and health history:

  • surgeries you have had
  • medications you are taking
  • Your exercise habits
  • Whether you smoke or take other drugs

He or she may also have an honest discussion with you about your sex life, including any problems you’ve had or whether you have or have ever had any STDs. You may be asked to give a semen sample for analysis.

Finding the cause of infertility can be difficult. Male infertility specialists have different ways of doing this, but here are some tests you can expect.

Sperm and semen analysis for male infertility treatment

A specialist checks the number, shape, motility, and other characteristics of the sperm. In general, if you have a higher number of normal-shaped sperm, then you have a higher fertility. But there are plenty of exceptions to this. Many men who have a low sperm count or abnormal semen are still able to conceive. About 15% of infertile men have normal semen and lots of normal sperm.

If the first semen analysis was normal, your doctor may order a second test to confirm the results. Two regular tests usually mean that you don’t have any major infertility problems. If something in the results seems unusual, your doctor may order more tests to pinpoint the problem.

If you have no semen or sperm at all, it may be due to a blockage that can be corrected with surgery.

physical exam

Male infertility can be caused by varicoceles – abnormal formations of veins above the testicles -. Where you can correct it with surgery.

Evaluation of hormones for the treatment of male infertility

Testosterone and other hormones control the making of sperm. Keep in mind that hormones are not the main problem in about 97% of infertile men. Experts disagree about how much research needs to be done for hormonal causes of infertility.

Genetic testing

He can identify barriers to fertility and sperm problems. Experts disagree on when to do genetic testing.

Causes of infertility in men

Sperm antibodies

Some men create abnormal bodies that attack sperm on their way to an egg, preventing a partner from becoming pregnant.

For men, making sperm isn’t the problem: getting the sperm to fertilization is the problem. Men with these conditions have normal sperm in their testicles, but the sperm in the semen is either missing or in low or abnormal numbers.

There are many reasons why the number of sperm in the semen may be low even if your body is consuming enough of it.

Retrograde ejaculation

In this case, the sperm descends backward into the bladder. It is usually caused by a previous surgery.

Missing the main sperm pipeline (vas deferens)

It is a genetic problem. Some men are born without a major sperm pipeline.


There can be a blockage anywhere between the testicles and the penis.

Idiopathic male infertility

It’s a fancy way of saying that there is no reason your doctor can determine an abnormal or low sperm count.

Don’t hesitate to take tests to check your fertility. When you and your partner do this, it will help you see what’s going on, and let you learn about therapy.
