Surgeries in the past and any other therapies that can lead to fertility issues. General Physical Health Examination: During this process, the doctor performs specific tests that reveal the overall well-being of the patient. The doctor also asks the patient about sexual habits, sexual development during teenage or puberty. Semen Analysis: To test the sperm, the doctor asks the patient to collect the sample of semen. It can be done either by masturbating and ejaculating in a particular container or during intercourse in a select type of condom. The semen is then put under examination in the laboratory, to check the sperm count, study the shape and size of sperm and other things that may be a possible cause of infertility. Scrotal Ultrasound: Scrotal ultrasound is the preferred test by the doctors to know any of the problems in testicles like varicocele or any other. Hormone Testing: Hypothalamus, pituitary glands and testicles play an essential role in producing sperm and other sexual development. Doctors carry out hormone testing to check for abnormalities if any. Urinalysis: Urine analysis after ejaculation is done to check the presence of sperm in the urine. If sperm is present in urine post ejaculation, it indicates that sperm does not travel out of your penis but move back into the bladder. Genetic Tests: Blood tests are performed to check if infertility is due to genetic disorders. This screening method is adapted when sperm count in a patient is meagre. Biopsy: It refers to removing samples from testicles using a needle and put it in a laboratory test to check if there is a problem with sperm production or any blockage. Function Test: It is done to check the speed of the sperm, survival of sperms after ejaculation, the capacity of sperm to penetrate the egg and fertilise it etc. Transrectal Ultrasound: This test helps determine the blockage in the reproductive system. Once the cause for infertility is known, the doctors decide on the method of treatment, after discussing it with the patient. Some of the conventional methods of treatment of male infertility are: Surgery: If the patient has vertical, it is removed by the surgeon by operating. In the surgical process, it is possible to reverse prior vasectomies. Surgical treatment is also helpful in case there is no sign of sperms in ejaculation. The surgeons retrieve directly from the testicles. Apart from the surgery, the surgeon may use epididymis and other sperm-retrieval techniques. Treatment of Infections: Infections are one of the most common causes of infertility in males. It is possible to cure the disease by the use of antibiotics, but there is no confirmation for restoring fertility. Hormonal Treatments: It refers to the replacement of abnormal hormones. It is also possible to treat hormonal disorders like low or high levels of hormones by using certain drugs and medicines. Managing Intercourse Issues: If the patient is suffering from intercourse problems, he requires counselling and medications to improve fertility. This condition does not require any surgical treatment. Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART): The procedure for this type of treatment varies for every patient. It can be obtaining sperm through normal ejaculation, surgical extraction of sperm, receiving sperm from donor etc. Then the sperm is inserted in the genital tract for the natural process of fertilisation, or it can be used for intracytoplasmic sperm injection or in vitro fertilisation. In almost 94% of the cases, it is possible to treat male infertility. But, if after trying all the possible ways of treating sterility; there is no considerable improvement in the condition of the patient, doctors suggest for using donor sperm or adopting the child. However, the success rate of male infertility treatment in India is above 98%. Home Remedies to overcome male infertility are: Increase the frequency of sex.
