About Male Factor Infertility


Approximately 15 percent of couples are unable to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. Traditionally, infertility was thought to be due to female factors alone, but it is now better understood that infertility is not just a female problem.


A male factor is solely responsible in about 20 percent of infertile couples and contributory in another 30 to 40 percent. If a male infertility factor is present, it is almost always defined by the finding of an abnormal semen analysis, although other male factors may play a role even when the semen analysis is normal.


Male Factor Infertility Evaluations


UW Health's fellowship-trained staff offers full medical evaluations of the male, including evaluation and treatment of endocrine dysfunction, microsurgical repair of anatomic problems (microsurgical varicocelectomy, microsurgical reconstructions of the male reproductive tract including vasovasostomy and the more complex epididymovasostomy), treatment of ejaculatory failure by electroejaculation, testicular sperm extraction and cryopreservation, treatment of ejaculatory ductal obstruction and treatment of immunologic male infertility.
