Male Infertility

Male infertility is associated with the quantity and quality of the sperm. The ability of the male partner to impregnate lies in the number and health of his sperm. If he does not produce enough sperm, then he is considered infertile or if his sperm do not survive for long inside the uterus. In some cases, a male who cannot ejaculate or eject sperm is also considered infertile, although the reasons for the inability to ejaculate during sexual intercourse can be psychological.

Most common treatment for male infertility

The most common treatment for male infertility is the ICSI or the intracytoplasmic sperm injection. In this laboratory process, a sperm is injected into the egg of the woman. Then, once the egg is fertilized, it is placed inside the woman’s uterus. The process ensures that a sperm manages to fertilize the egg despite the low numbers of sperm in the man’s semen.

Hormonal imbalance

However, if the male infertility is due to hormonal imbalance, the man undergoes hormonal therapy. That is, his endocrine glands, specifically the pituitary and the hypothalamus, will be induced to produce hormones that will instruct his body to start producing a sufficient quantity of sperms. Some of the hormones needed are the gonadotropin releasing hormones.
