Are you and your partner trying to conceive but facing difficulties in achieving pregnancy? Do you wonder if there is something wrong with your sperm or reproductive system? Do you feel frustrated, embarrassed, or hopeless about your situation? If yes, then you are not alone. Millions of men around the world suffer from male infertility, which is the inability to cause pregnancy in a fertile female partner.
Male infertility can be caused by various factors, such as:
- Hormonal imbalances, such as low testosterone, thyroid problems, or pituitary disorders
- Genetic defects, such as Klinefelter syndrome, Y chromosome microdeletions, or cystic fibrosis
- Infections, such as sexually transmitted diseases, prostatitis, or epididymitis
- Varicocele, which is a swelling of the veins in the scrotum that affects the temperature and blood flow of the testicles
- Obstructions, such as vasectomy, congenital absence of the vas deferens, or scar tissue
- Ejaculation problems, such as retrograde ejaculation, premature ejaculation, or erectile dysfunction
- Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, alcohol, drugs, stress, obesity, or exposure to heat or toxins
Male infertility can affect your physical and mental health, as well as your relationship with your partner. It can also limit your options for having a biological child. However, there is hope. Thanks to the advances in medical science and technology, there are many treatments and solutions available today that can help you overcome your male infertility and achieve your parenthood goals.
What to expect from IVF and ICSI?
- Medication: This involves taking pills or injections to correct hormonal imbalances, treat infections, or improve sperm quality or quantity.
- Surgery: This involves repairing any physical problems in the reproductive organs, such as varicocele, obstruction, or injury.
Assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs): These involve using laboratory techniques to assist in the conception or delivery of a child. They include:
- Intrauterine insemination (IUI): This involves placing washed and concentrated sperm directly into the uterus around the time of ovulation.
- In vitro fertilization (IVF): This involves retrieving eggs from the ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the uterus or frozen for future use.
- Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI): This involves injecting a single sperm into an egg under a microscope. This technique is used when there is a problem with the sperm quality or quantity.
- Testicular sperm extraction (TESE): This involves removing a small piece of testicular tissue and extracting sperm from it. This technique is used when there is no sperm in the ejaculate due to obstruction or production failure.
- Donor sperm: This involves using sperm from another man who has been screened for genetic and infectious diseases to inseminate a woman who wants to have a child without a male partner or with a male partner who has a genetic disorder.
- Surrogacy: This involves hiring another woman (called a surrogate) to carry and deliver a child for you. The surrogate may be genetically related to the child (using her own eggs) or not (using donor eggs or your partner’s eggs).
