Fertility Treatments for Men

Written by The Fertility Center on . Posted in Infertility Issues

Many couples are unable to conceive because of an issue with male infertility. When men find out there are issues with their reproduction, it can be a
devastating shock. The Fertility Center of Las Vegas offers various options for treating male infertility.

What Causes Male Infertility?

There are numerous causes of male infertility. Some can easily be treated while others need more work to diagnose and treat. Idiopathic infertility shows issues like low sperm count, poor sperm quality or low sperm motility for no identifiable reason. In this case, and many others, you will need to seek assistance from a reproductive specialist to develop a treatment plan that works for you.

Other causes of male infertility include:Fertility Treatments for Men

  • Retrograde ejaculation, which causes the sperm to ejaculate backward into the bladder
  • Absence of sperm in the vas deferens
  • Undescended testicle
  • Infections in the testicle or prostate
  • Chemotherapy treatment for cancer

Fertility treatments for men can include certain fertility drugs or help from assisted reproductive technology (ART).

Treating Male Infertility

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

During intrauterine insemination, sperm is first prepared (washed) and then it is injected directly into the female’s uterus while she is ovulating. Sometimes, the woman will receive medication to increase the number of eggs she produces in order to increase chances of conception.

In vitro fertilization (IVF)

The next option is a popular fertility treatment method. With in vitro fertilization, eggs are collected from the female partner and then mixed with the sperm in the lab. Next, the embryos are implanted into the uterus.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection helps with cases involving low sperm counts and high numbers of abnormal sperm so that the best can be selected for fertilization. In this process, a single sperm is injected through a needle into an egg. Once fertilized, the egg is then implanted back into the uterus.

Fertility Drugs for Men

Hormone balance is essential to creating healthy sperm that will take part in conceiving a baby. Sometimes, men need help balancing some of the same hormones women do. The following medications can help men with hormone imbalance:

  • Human chorionic gonadotropin
  • Human menopausal gonadotropin
  • Recombinant human follicle stimulating hormone
  • Clomid
