Female vs. male fertility: What are the factors, part 2

In our last post, we discussed the factors that may cause female infertility. Now, let’s look at the male side of this issue.

Though many people think that infertility in a couple is most likely due to a female issue, that is not the case. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, about half of all cases of infertility involve an element of male infertility. Male infertility is solely responsible for 20-30 percent of infertility cases and is a contributing cause, along with a female factor, in another 20-30 percent of cases.

Causes may include:

  • Sperm production
  • Age and lifestyle
  • Genetics
  • Other medical issues.
