Male Infertility Treatments

Treatments for infertility in men may include:

  • Medications: Medical therapy may be appropriate in the event of a hormone imbalance, infection or other diseases.
  • Surgery: Surgeons can correct a structural defect or blockage in the reproductive system or remove varicose veins in the scrotum.
  • Addressing other health issues: Your physician can help you control high blood pressure, diabetes and other conditions that can impact fertility.
  • Lifestyle changes: Your physician might recommend lifestyle changes that can boost your fertility, including maintaining a healthy weight, eliminating smoking or recreational drugs, alcohol in moderation and stress reduction.

Your physician may discuss other options for pregnancy, called assisted reproductive technologies (ART), including:

  • Artificial insemination
  • Intrauterine insemination
  • In vitro fertilization (IVF)
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
  • Zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT)
