Male infertility is generally the result of an inability to properly produce healthy sperm or because of a blockage that prevents sperm from joining the semen. Although a man may be embarrassed to admit that he has a fertility problem, it is important that he undergo fertility testing. Male factors are just as likely to lead to infertility as female factors, especially if he is older.
While they are rarer, hypogonadism and retrograde ejaculation are two disorders that can interfere with your ability to conceive. Antisperm antibodies occur when the body develops an immune system response to sperm. Although it is more common in men, this disorder can also develop in women.
One problem that happens frequently in men is impotence. While an occasional bout of impotence is nothing to worry about, a prolonged period of erectile difficulties can signal a larger health problem and warrants a visit with your doctor.
