A man’s infertility is often overlooked as being an issue when it comes to trying to get pregnant.  When couples have problems trying to conceive, up to half of the time, it could be due to male infertility. There is more research being conducted to identify critical issues causing a man to be infertile. Scientists are trying to find new technology to increase how sperm cells swim by supercharging the cells. The belief is that treatment can help improve the mobility of sperm, then this can increase the chance to reach a woman’s egg to fertilize it. This type of treatment or medication could be the answer for couples to conceive naturally and avoid expensive treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF).


Is there a Cure?

As science and technology are becoming more cutting edge, scientists are trying to develop treatments and procedures that are less invasive for the female and will cost less money overall. In general, currently, there is not much that men can do when it comes to infertility treatment when their sperm quality is poor.  Approximately one in six couples have difficulty conceiving. There are medications to treat hormone imbalances and erectile dysfunction. At times, surgery can repair blockages that transport sperm. However, there is nothing clinically proven to cure male infertility, yet scientists are not giving up on the search to find a treatment.
