Male Factor Infertility


Infertility is a disease defined by the failure to achieve a successful pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected intercourse. Earlier evaluation and treatment may be justified based on medical history and physical findings and is warranted after 6 months for women over age 35 years. Ten to fifteen percent of couples will experience infertility. A male factor is present in up to half of cases of infertility and often can be treated.
