Support For Men Struggling with Male Infertility

It is estimated that one in every six couples experiences difficulty conceiving a child. In most cases, the problem is with the woman. But in about one-third of all infertility cases, the man is responsible for the couple’s inability to conceive. If you are one of those men, you may feel alone and helpless. You may be searching for information and support but not know where to find it. This article provides information on male infertility and offers support to men who are struggling with this issue.

What Causes Male Infertility?

There are many possible causes of male infertility. Some men have a low sperm count. Others have sperm that are misshapen or unable to swim properly. Still, others may produce too little testosterone, the hormone responsible for the development of the male reproductive organs and the production of sperm. In some cases, there is no obvious cause for a man’s infertility.

How Common is Male Infertility?

It is difficult to say how common male infertility is because many couples do not seek help from a fertility specialist until they have been trying to conceive for at least one year, and by that time, the woman’s fertility may also be an issue. However, it is estimated that about 15% of couples who are unable to conceive have a problem with the man’s fertility.

What are the Symptoms of Male Infertility?

There are usually no symptoms of males infertility. A man with male infertility may have a lower than normal sperm count or abnormal sperm. He may also have a history of testicular injury or infection, undescended testicles, genetic defects, or Varicocele (swelling of the veins in the scrotum that can affect the quality of sperm).

What Can be Done to Treat?

If you are struggling with infertility, it is important to seek professional help. A fertility specialist can perform fertility tests for males to determine the cause of their infertility and recommend treatment options. In some cases, fertility drugs may be prescribed to increase sperm production. Surgery is also occasionally an option. If your infertility is due to a low sperm count, you may be able to increase your chances of conceiving by using intrauterine insemination (IUI), a procedure in which sperm is directly injected into the woman’s uterus. You may also want to consider assisted reproductive technologies (ART) such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

What Can You Do to cope?

If you are struggling with males infertility, it is important to find a support system. Talk to your partner about how you are feeling. If you do not have a partner, consider talking to a friend or family member about your struggles. There are also many online support groups for men with fertility issues. Reading articles and books about male infertility can also be helpful. Finally, remember that you are not alone in this struggle. Many couples cope with infertility every day. With support, you can get through this difficult time.

Male infertility is a problem that often goes undiagnosed and untreated. However, help may be available through support groups for men who are struggling with male infertility.
