Male Fertility Problems :

Reproduction (or making a baby) is a simple and natural experience for most couples. However, for some couples it is very difficult to conceive.

Male infertility is diagnosed when, after testing of both partners, reproductive problems have been found in the male partner.

Male infertility can be caused by problems that affect sperm production or the sperm transport process. With the results of medical tests, the doctor may be able to find a cause of the problem. There may be genetic causes of male infertility.

When a couple is having medical investigations for infertility, testing of the male partner will usually include semen analysis. (This test is also used to confirm a successful vasectomy.)
