Male infertility is the cause of up to 50% of a couple's infertility

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

How to track male fertility

If you've been trying to get pregnant for a while, are going to soon try, or are just curious about whether you will be fertile as a couple, the first step is to gauge male fertility by testing and tracking certain factors. A sperm count and analysis is the typical first course of action. This lets you know whether the sperm is adequate. When it comes to sperm, it's about both quantity and quality. A man needs to have enough sperm and they need to have normal structure and shape as well as motility. Motility is how well and fast the sperm move.

If a man has never gotten a woman pregnant before, should he be concerned that he is infertile?
