Infertility in males 

If you and your partner are having trouble conceiving, both of you should get tested. You may have an issue with sperm delivery or sperm production. Abnormal sperm production refers to both the quantity and quality of your sperm. Problems may be linked to genetic conditions, diseases like diabetes, sexually transmitted infections, having had mumps, or varicocele.

Problems with the delivery of sperm may be caused by any of the following:

There are also environmental causes for poor sperm production and delivery. Exposure to chemicals, toxic pollutants, very hot water in hot tubs, and cancer treatments can also negatively affect male fertility. At Gulf Coast Urology, we treat your fertility issues with compassion.
