Texas Fertility Center Cedar Park

Male Infertility

The right treatments can help overcome male infertility

Many people think that only women have fertility struggles. However, male infertility is a factor in about half of infertility cases. Texas Fertility Center works hard to help patients overcome infertility in men and women. Since 1980, our team has helped women and men welcome thousands of healthy babies, and Madeline Kaye MD offers this time-tested care at our Cedar Park fertility clinic.

When you partner with Dr. Kaye, she and our team will help you identify the cause of your fertility struggles. Using this information, you’ll work together to develop the best treatment plan to make parenthood possible.

Getting a diagnosis is key when facing infertility in men

Because infertility can affect both men and women, Dr. Kaye orders a semen analysis for every man who visits our clinic. A semen analysis is a helpful test that provides information about semen volume, sperm concentration (count), sperm motility (movement) and sperm morphology (shape).

Armed with your semen analysis results and information from your first visit, Dr. Kaye will work to make a diagnosis. A low sperm count is one of the most common male infertility causes, which is typically treatable using the options at our Cedar Park fertility clinic.

Other issues that cause infertility in men may also exist. Thankfully, Dr. Kaye can make a referral to a trained urologist (a doctor who specializes in the male reproductive tract) for more specialized treatment for issues ranging from erectile dysfunction to blockages.

A wealth of treatments can help overcome male infertility

You will work with Dr. Kaye and our Cedar Park fertility clinic team to determine which treatment option is the best one to meet your family-building goals. Depending on your diagnosis, Dr. Kaye may recommend one of the following fertility treatments.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a common treatment option to address infertility in men. It involves using a catheter to place washed and prepared sperm into a woman’s uterus.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a more advanced treatment that can help make parenthood possible. It allows many men, even those with a very low sperm count, to become fathers.

While we know that a diagnosis of male infertility can be upsetting, it’s important to know that it’s a common and treatable diagnosis. Contact us to schedule an appointment and get started.
