Why a Male Fertility Evaluation Could Benefit His Overall Health

October 9, 2013

Infertility is often a symptom of an underlying health condition. For women, conditions like PCOS or Hypothalamic Amenorrhea result in anovulation and could be indicative of endocrine system hormone imbalances. Sometimes balancing diet and exercise can restore a woman’s menstrual cycle.

As it turns out, this concept also applies to men. Male factor infertility is responsible for about half of all infertility cases, and as many as 40% of infertility cases are the combined result of both male factor and female factor infertility. It is important for men and couples to be educated on male factor infertility and to seek an evaluation to rule out hormone imbalances resulting from poor diet and lack of exercise, cancers, or other underlying health conditions which manifest through poor sperm quality or quantity.

One or more embryos, created from the intended mother’s eggs or donor eggs and sperm from the intended father or a sperm donor, is transferred into the uterus of the gestational carrier similar to a traditional embryo transfer in IVF. The gestational carrier will relinquish all rights to the child at birth as is detailed in a gestational carrier agreement. However, gestational carrier agreements are not legal in all states making custody and parental rights a bit murky.
