When a couple has issues when trying to get pregnant, on average there is a 50-50 chance that it is due to male not contributing to the pregnancy. If you and your partner have tried to conceive for over a year with no success, we recommend both partners undergo infertility testing. The first step in male infertility testing is a semen analysis, a simple non-invasive test along with a physical which can give guidance on your infertility.
The first step in understanding if a male is infertile is through a semen sample. Through the test, we evaluate the sperm count and quality in four main factors:
Through this test, we can also determine if you have an infection in your reproductive that can enable you from being fertile.
If your test results are not normal, Dr. Saadat would recommend undergoing a hormone level test. For males, two important hormones for reproduction are testosterone (T) and follicle-stimulation hormone (FSH). If you have too much or too little of these hormones, it could cause your interest and ability to have sex along with issues with sperm production.
If the male’s test comes back normal, we can eliminate the possibility of male infertility issues and focus testing and treatment on the female. Further male factor evaluation is not likely.
If you and your partner are looking to start your infertility journey, testing the male (and female) are critical steps to create an action plan to get pregnant. Our dedicated team will be happy to provide you with more information over the phone and start the consultation process.
The turnaround time for male infertility test results can vary. Semen analysis results are usually available within a few days, while other tests may take longer, depending on the specific tests performed.
Yes, many cases of male infertility can be treated or managed effectively. Treatment options may include lifestyle modifications, hormone therapy, surgical interventions, or assisted reproductive techniques such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
Male infertility testing aims to identify any underlying issues or potential causes of infertility. While it can provide valuable insights, a comprehensive evaluation of both partners is often necessary to fully understand the factors contributing to fertility challenges.
Coverage for male infertility testing may vary depending on individual insurance plans.
Male infertility can be caused by various factors, including low sperm count, poor sperm motility, abnormal sperm morphology, hormonal imbalances, genetic conditions, testicular abnormalities, certain medications, and lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, or drug use.

We just celebrated our son’s first birthday and thought we should send out warm wishes to Dr. Saadat and his team as well. Without them this would not have been possible.
I cannot express all my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Saddat and his team for giving me the ultimate blessing of soon becoming a mother. I have struggled with fertility and never in my wildest dreams thought I would be able to get pregnant.
