Stats on male infertility
It's a common thought that women are always responsible for infertility but nothing could be further from the truth. In one-third of couples with known fertility issues, the male has the fertility problem. In 50 percent of infertile couples, both the male and female have fertility issues which means that the man is totally or partially responsible for the infertility.
