From male member’s low sperm counts to smoking makes a man impotent, the topic of male infertility is rife with myths and half-truths.

There are treatments available to treat male infertility, however, first it is important to break the certain myths related to male infertility and these are as follows:

  • Myth: The biggest myth about infertility is that infertility is a problem of females only.
  • Fact: This is not true. According to the modern study, it has been found that 40% of cases of infertility are lie with the male member. We do see so many cases where thousands of tests to identify infertility in females are done but not a single semen analysis is done for the male partner.
  • Myth: Usually, people think that stress is one of the major causes of infertility.
  • Fact: False. Actually, stress only affects one’s sex drive but it will not affect the quality and the quantity of the semen and thus it will not lead to infertility. So, if the sexual relations between a man and a woman are ok and a woman still is not able to conceive, then both the partners need to meet the doctor.
  • Myth: If a man keeps his testicles cold that will enhance semen quality.
  • Fact: Again this statement is not true. Cooling testicles by ice is not only dangerous but ineffective too. However, men also need to avoid wearing tight undergarments, and prolonged driving because it raises the scrotal temperature and will affect the quality of sperm. Also, the men need to avoid the heat and radiation from the prolonged use of a laptop on their lap and frequent use of hot tubs is not good for sperms and it has been found that it will decrease the sperm counts.
  • Myth: Men of old age have infertility problems.
  • Fact: No, even young men can also have severe infertility problems such as the absence of sperms or very low sperm counts, poor quality of sperms etc. can be encountered to men at the age 20 years as well.
  • Myth: Does smoking and drinking alcohol can cause infertility in men?
  • Fact: Yes, this statement is true. Quitting smoking and drinking alcohol in moderation is beneficial as both affect the quality of men sperms.
  • Myth: Weight does not affect male fertility.
  • Fact: This statement is not true. Men with an optimal body mass index (BMI) which is of 20 to 25 tend to have better and normal sperm production. Men who are overweight or underweight need to manage their body weight according to their body mass index (BMI) to avoid male infertility issues.
  • Myth: Excessive cycling affects male fertility or sperm count
  • Fact: Not true as cycling does not affect men’s sperm count. However, there may be other problems occur due to cycling which could be related to erections.
  • Myth: Having regular intercourse may enhance fertility.
  • Fact: Not true as it may decrease the chances of conception because the life of women eggs are only 24 hours long, having regular intercourse will only help during the woman’s fertile period.

What to do About Male Infertility?

You need not to worry as the Go IVF Surrogacy has various male infertility treatment options. Depending on your case, you may decide to take medication, explore fertilization options, or consider an egg donor. The following are some common procedures and these are:

a) IVF with ICSI: ICSI is considered to be one of the best male infertility treatments for a person who is undergoing for an IVF. ICSI is a procedure which will boost the IVF success rates and the study says that 75% of the women under age of 35 years who had undergone for the IVF with ICSI procedure have achieved the successful pregnancies. This treatment has bypassed many male infertility problems such as low sperm count, poor quality of sperms, blockage or irreversible vasectomy.

b) Hormone treatment: Your fertility expert will prescribe some fertility drug treatment which helps to correct your hormonal imbalances and also improve the health of your sperm. Clomid is one of the most common drugs which men need to take a pill per day for about three to six months.

Clomid is a powerful drug which helps men pituitary gland to produce luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which communicate with their testicles to produce good quality of sperm.

c) Testicular biopsy, TESA, MESA: With the advancement in medical science men who have few or no sperm in his ejaculate can create genetically-related children. During the IVF with ICSI procedure, your fertility expert will inject a single sperm directly into the women egg to make conception successful; however, if the fertility expert is unable to obtain the sperm from men ejaculate, then they can be surgically withdrawn from the testicle (TESA) or extracted directly from the epididymis (MESA) to make the conception happened.

d) Surgery: When all the other non-surgical procedures are failed to provide a successful outcome then surgery is the only option left to treat the male infertility condition. Surgery can remove the barriers to pregnancy. Following are some examples:
