Male Fertility Evaluation in New York
Approximately 1/2 the time, a couple’s infertility is due to male factor. It is important to obtain a complete medical history and semen analysis in the beginning stages of testing. The semen analysis is a relatively non-invasive and extremely cost effective method of evaluating male infertility. Most men will have some amount of sperm present in the ejaculate, although occasionally there is a complete lack of sperm. This does not mean that these men cannot conceive a child of their own, it simply means that more invasive treatment options may be necessary to help them conceive. Referral to a urologist is sometimes necessary for further evaluation and/or treatment.
