Male Infertility

What is Male Infertility?

Male infertility includes any health problem that prevents or lowers a man’s chance of getting his female partner pregnant. Common causes of infertility may include varicoceles- an enlargement of the veins in your scrotum, low sperm count, low sperm motility, hormones, medications, previous testosterone use, workplace chemical exposures, and retrograde ejaculation- where semen goes backwards into the bladder rather than out the penis.
