Male Infertility Q & A

What is male infertility?

Infertility occurs when you have problems with your reproductive system or sexual function that prevents you from having a child. While many women feel significant pressure when it comes to fertility, issues arise in both female and male partners.

Many factors have to come together perfectly for conception. As a woman, the ovaries need to produce and release a mature egg. That egg must travel through the fallopian tube to reach the uterus. 

At the same time, a male partner has to ejaculate a sufficient quantity of healthy sperm that manages to make their way through the cervix and into the uterus. Just one of the hundreds of millions of sperm has to find and join with the egg.

Male infertility occurs when men can’t produce enough quality sperm to successfully make the journey to the uterus. 


When should I talk to a specialist about male infertility?

If you’re under the age of 35, you should talk to the team at HealthKey Group Fertility if you and your partner have been trying to have a baby for a year without success. If you’re 35 or older, you should seek a fertility’s evaluation and treatment after six months of trying for a baby.

Some reasons you may seek male infertility treatment include: 

  • A lower than normal sperm count 
  • Problems with your sexual function — for example, diminished sexual desire, poor quality sperm, premature ejaculation, or difficulty staying erect for sexual intercourse
  • Swelling in your testicle area
  • Depression or anxiety about being unable to have a child


What methods treat male infertility?

Fertility treatments begin with a thorough evaluation to identify the condition or issue preventing your partner from getting pregnant. Both male and female partners should undergo a fertility evaluation. The team looks for the root cause of infertility, and they provide natural therapies to help increase your chances of having a family. 

The fertility specialists at HealthKey Group Fertility combine the best of holistic medicine with alternative therapies such as acupuncture, massage therapy, and herbal supplements to enhance your health.

Your provider may also suggest dietary changes and other lifestyle modifications to optimize your well-being. For example, maintaining a healthy weight can help regulate your hormones, supporting your reproductive health.
