About Male Infertility

Statistics show that although only about 2% of men are actually considered to be infertile a staggering 40% of men are considered to have low fertility.

Male fertility requires normal sperm production and sperm transport, and adequate sexual performance, functions that require normal levels of testosterone.

In most cases, there are no obvious symptoms male of infertility. You’ll usually have no difficulty with sexual activity & medical tests will be required to assess the exact cause of the infertility.

Infertility can be caused by problems that affect sperm production or how the sperm travels.

There are medical tests that can help work out the cause.

About two-thirds of infertile men have a problem where they make low numbers of sperm and/or sperm that don’t work properly.

Other causes include low levels of hormones made in the pituitary gland or Sperm antibodies (proteins that fight against sperm, which are found in one in 16 infertile men)
