What is Male Infertility?
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a child after one year of unprotected intercourse. Infertility is not just a women's issue. In fact, in approximately 50 percent of all infertile couples, an abnormal male factor is responsible for infertility, and 30 percent of couples will not be able to conceive solely because of a male factor.
The evaluation of male infertility is simple, however, and if the male is identified as the factor, the team of specialists at Chesapeake Urology's Male Infertility Clinic can provide expert fertility treatments, helping couples conceive naturally. Dr. Lerner and the program's team of physicians recommend a complete evaluation for male patients, including a semen analysis, a complete laboratory work-up that includes hormonal testing, as well as other lab tests as indicated, to identify the cause of a couples' infertility.
Dr. Lerner firmly believes that every couple should have the chance to conceive a child. He also understands that male infertility is a private and sensitive subject among the many couples he treats and provides his patients with compassionate, unparalleled care that puts his patients' minds at ease.
