Causes of Male Infertility

Effective treatments to restore fertility and help men become biological fathers

Infertility means not achieving a successful pregnancy after a year of unprotected sex (6 months if your female partner is over 35). About 50 percent of the time, male fertility plays a role. We take the time to understand your condition and use effective treatments to help you become a biological father.

Male fertility conditions we treat

Male infertility has many possible causes. We expertly diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Azoospermia (zero sperm count): We use advanced surgical methods to treat both obstructive and non-obstructive azoospermia
  • Varicocele: Enlarged veins in the testicles (varicocele) can interfere with your sperm count or motility. Our surgeons can repair the veins and help restore fertility.
  • Hormone management: Our expert accurately diagnose hormonal imbalances that affect fertility. We offer safe, effective treatments to rebalance hormones. 
  • Cystic fibrosis fertility care: Men with cystic fibrosis (CF) face unique fertility challenges. Most are born without a vas deferens (the tube that carries sperm out of the testicles). Our doctors are experienced at helping men with CF become fathers. 
  • Cancer fertility preservation: If you face a cancer treatment that might affect your fertility, we can freeze sperm or embryos for later use.
