There are 3 main types of causes of male infertility. You will be screened for these conditions.

  • Testicular: Injury, infection, cancer, birth defects (undescended), Medications, alcohol & smoking
  • Post-testicular: Obstruction to the sperm passage- cystic fibrosis, vasectomy
  • Pre-testicular: mostly related to hormonal causes, Kleinfelter syndrome
  • Miscelllaneous: Ejaculatory disorders (premature ejaculation, retrograde or delayed ejaculation), erectile problems, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and stress

It is useful that you bring the results of tests, if you had any, in relation to your urinary system (kidneys, bladder) and genital system (testis, prostate).
