There are many factors on the male side that impact forming a healthy fetus. In short , there are a number of causes of male infertility.
There are infertile men who have a great sperm count with excellent looking sperm in the initial semen analysis.
There are men with extremely few sperm that can be fertile. Remember, you only need one sperm to get pregnant!
With male infertility, we’re referencing a condition that’s not allowing a man to conceive naturally. But it’s not simply a matter of just looking at the sperm.
So, for this whole cycle to work, it’s important to have motile (capable of movement) and healthy sperm.
When you dive down to the molecular level, the DNA of the sperm itself must be strong enough to survive the splitting and reproducing that’s required to go from an initial embryo all the way to a baby.
Dr. Sandeep Mistry completed his residency in urologic surgery at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Dr. Mistry is a urologist that specializes in treating patients going through infertility treatments and has been in active practice for more than ten years in Austin, TX. In addition, he treats a number of men for hormone deficiency which has led him to create an approach to treat male patients more holistically, looking at their general health and welfare as it impacts fertility and not just their hormones and anatomy.
