About 15% of couples have difficulty finding their first pregnancy, and the misconception is that infertility of the woman is the root cause. While a female partner raises the blame for the joints in conceiving, infertility affects men equally.
In fact, about 1/3 of infertility cases is due to male factor infertility, another 1/3 to female infertility, and the last 1/3 is either unexplained or due to factors that combine both individuals. For this reason, it is vital that testing be performed on the man to determine if male factor infertility is the issue. There are 3 known scenarios that give rise to male infertility:
- The male might produce too few sperm that can actually fertilize the egg, also known as low sperm count
- Produced sperm might be misshapen and/or does not move properly
- The reproductive tract may be blocked, keeping the sperm out of the mans ejaculate
The first test typically performed is a semen analysis, which will tell the doctor if a man is producing enough sperm and if the sperm is moving properly and is shaped correctly.
Hormone levels are also of vital importance when trying to get a woman pregnant. If a person produces more or less hormones, not only can it affect a human interest in the penis, it can also affect its ability to produce viable sperm. A blood test can determine if a man’s hormone levels are the right amount. Other tests do to determine whether there is factor infertility inside the male, there are work typing and cystic fibrosis test.
