Treatment For Male Infertility

Treatments for male infertility


Treatment with medication

Some issues that affect male infertility can be treated with medication including hormone imbalances and erectile dysfunction. Medicines do improve sperm production, cure infections and treat hormonal dysfunction.

Most commonly used medicines include Tamoxifen in which an antiestrogen agent stimulates the male hormone release and increase the testosterone production. Antibiotics like Doxycycline and Levofloxacin are also used to treat fertility impacting infections of the testes, urinary tract, prostate, and STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases).

Treatment with surgery

The most common problem resulting in male infertility is Varicocele. Varicocele is the condition of varicose veins presence in the testicles which makes it difficult for the blood to circulate well in the testicles, in which case the extra blood in the testicles cause the temperature in the testicles to rise resulting abnormal testosterone levels.

This is a very serious issue which can be treated in majority of cases with the help of a surgery. Surgery can also be performed in repairing blocks in the tubes that transport sperm from the testicles to the penis. If the surgery does not restore fertility, Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) can be a good option.

Sexual Intercourse

In such cases where erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation is the cause for infertility, the doctors may prescribe some medicines and counseling is another alternative to correct sexual intercourse problems.

Assisted Reproductive Technology

(ART) – ART will be helpful for the couple to conceive in case of retrograde ejaculation, blocked vas deferens, or any other problems related to sperm.

The treatment for male infertility depends upon the various causes of infertility. Most of the male infertility issues can be treated. In some cases where the treatment is not possible, doctors may suggest the couple to go in for donor sperm (when the woman has no fertility problems) or adopting a child.
