Let's take a look at the most common causes of male infertility to start with. A low sperm count, an abnormal morphology (shape) of sperm, or a lack of sperm's ability to move (motility) can all prevent pregnancy. These fertility problems can sometimes be caused by lifestyle factors that are possible to adjust without much medical intervention. Another possible cause of male infertility is varicocele, where swollen veins drain the testicles and raise the temperature inside them. Seeing a urologist is a good first step. Some men can be treated with antibiotics, can regain their fertility by implementing lifestyle changes, or undergo surgery, depending on the underlying cause of the infertility.
Once it has been established that a couple will need assisted fertility procedures such as Intrauterine Insemination, ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), and sperm washing, all you will need to do is find a fertility clinic that has reasonable success rates for the procedure you are undergoing. Finding the right fertility clinic for you is by no means an easy task. Doing research into a clinic's success rates, finding out what procedures they are best at, the costs of the treatments, and feeling valued as a patient are all factors that are important when it comes to how to choose a fertility clinic. The location, and whether a clinic can work with your insurance company, are also relevant factors.
