I am a Single Man and I Desire Fertility or to Preserve my Reproductive Future

Specialists in IVF and ICSI

Male infertility refers to a man’s inability to conceive a pregnancy in a female sexual partner after a reasonable period of unprotected sexual intercourse.

Approximately one-third of infertility cases are attributed to exclusively male problems

Environmental and Habitual Factors That Generally Affect Men

Sedentary lifestyle: Lack of physical activity contributes to weight gain, obesity, semen quality, and crucial hormonal production for fertility. Maintaining a balanced diet is essential for reproductive health.

Chronic stress negatively impacts reproductive capacity by altering hormonal production, particularly cortisol, which can affect sperm production.

Exposure to chemicals found in personal care products and the environment, such as endocrine disruptors, can damage semen quality and male reproductive function.

Tobacco and excessive alcohol reduce semen quality and harm testicular function.

Constant exposure to high temperatures and radiation from electronic devices can affect sperm production and disrupt the reproductive system’s balance.

While age is often discussed in relation to female fertility, it also influences semen quality and male fertility. Understanding how aging affects reproductive capacity in men is essential.

Infertility Summary

SIGNS: Often lacks noticeable symptoms.

DIAGNOSIS: Semen analysis or direct sperm analysis (DSA) is crucial to assess sperm count, mobility, and morphology. Alterations in these parameters often hinder egg fertilization.

WHAT TO DO: Supporting your partner in the process is valuable. The initial visit provides an opportunity to understand the diagnosis and how to support the treatment.

TREATMENT: A plan is developed after comprehensive evaluation of both partners. Our experts will guide the steps toward building a family.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Common is Male Infertility?

One out of seven couples waits in vain for a positive pregnancy test. So, infertility is quite common. In half of the cases, the reasons are found in the man. There’s a 10% occurrence of unexplained infertility causes, which can be found in both women and men.

What are the Signs of Infertility?

Usually, there are no physical symptoms. Sometimes, a varicose vein in the testicles, discharge, or pain during urination can indicate organic problems that might limit fertility. If you and your partner have been unsuccessfully trying to conceive for over a year, both should undergo an examination to determine if there’s a reason for the lack of pregnancy.

Why are Male Fertility Issues Iancreasing?

Sperm count in men from industrialized Western nations has been decreasing for years, dropping by nearly 60% between 1973 and 2011, according to a study that gathered data from 42,000 men. The causes of this decline in sperm count are attributed to stress, obesity, pesticides, high-carb, and high-fat diets, as well as chemical usage.

The World Health Organization (WHO) states in one of its publications that fertility in men under 30 has decreased by 15% since 1980.

Examination and Evaluation

Seminal analysis or direct sperm analysis (DSA) is crucial in evaluating male fertility. Parameters such as quantity, mobility, and appearance of sperm align with WHO guidelines (2010).

FERTILITE has experts in Andrology and precise technology for these evaluations.

PROCEDURE: The study requires abstinence from sexual activity for 2 to 5 days. On the day of your DSA appointment, you’ll receive a sterile container to collect the sample. It will be evaluated, and you’ll have the report in no more than 2 hours.

DSA is usually performed before the consultation to discuss the results during the appointment, along with a comprehensive physical assessment. During this consultation, our specialists will plan the next steps of treatment.

Origins of Infertility

  • Sexual or ejaculatory dysfunction

  • Systemic, testicular, or prostatic infections

  • Varicocele (varicose veins in testicles)

  • Vascular or traumatic injuries

  • Testicular or pituitary tumors

  • Tumors and treatments like chemotherapy or radiotherapy

  • Abuse of anabolic steroids

Genetic origins:

  • Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism

  • Idiopathic testicular failure

  • Klinefelter syndrome

  • AZF deletion

  • Y-chromosome microdeletions

  • Cystic fibrosis

  • Mutations in cystic fibrosis genes

Unlike women, age doesn’t affect male fertility, but sperm quality decreases over time.

How Do Environment And Lifestyle Affect Fertility?

Habits like alcohol consumption, tobacco use, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle can frequently impact the concentration and quality of sperm. Specifically, smoking has been linked to reduced sperm concentration and slower motility, hindering their ability to reach the egg and achieve fertilization.

In addition to these lifestyle factors, environmental influences such as pollution and the presence of certain chemical substances, like parabens found in creams or shampoos, can also potentially affect fertility. Parabens are commonly added as preservatives to prevent the growth of microorganisms, fungi, or bacteria within the product.

Fertility Plan for Each Stage

What Therapeutic Options Exist?

Sperm capacitation is crucial. It involves selecting, nurturing, and capacitating high-quality sperm for fertilization, done in the andrology laboratory. This optimized sample supports conception.

If sperm analysis doesn’t allow capacitation, the fertility specialist will guide the next steps, focused on solving problems like infections or obstructions.

Therapeutic options may include direct aspiration of sperm from the testicle or epididymis, improving the sample for IVF and ICSI.

How to Identify a Good Fertility Clinic?

Success in treatment depends not only on personal biology but also on the choice of the center.

Factors to consider:

  • Multidisciplinary team with specialists in Gynecology, Reproductive Medicine, Andrology, Embryology, among others.
  • Personalized treatments based on life stage.
  • Constant updates to apply the latest scientific advances.
  • High-quality technology available at the clinic.
  • Success backed by documented rates.
  • Certifications from National and International Medical Associations.

Preservation of Male Fertility

Male fertility preservation is a set of medical techniques designed to help men maintain the ability to have children in the future, even if they are exposed to factors that could compromise their fertility. These factors can include medical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgeries that could affect sperm production. It may also be relevant for men who wish to delay fatherhood for various personal or professional reasons.

The main techniques for male fertility preservation are:

Sperm Cryopreservation

This is the most common and effective technique. It involves collecting and freezing sperm for storage at very low temperatures.

Frozen sperm can be preserved for years and used later for in vitro fertilization (IVF) or artificial insemination.

Testicular Biopsy and Cryopreservation of Testicular Tissue

In cases where a man cannot ejaculate or doesn’t produce enough sperm, a testicular biopsy can be performed to obtain testicular tissue containing sperm.

These sperm can be frozen and used in IVF procedures in the future.

Freezing of Testicular Tissue

In some cases, when sperm cannot be found in the testicular biopsy, a small portion of testicular tissue can be frozen.

If future techniques are developed to extract sperm directly from this tissue or to stimulate sperm production, this tissue could be used for fertility.

Freezing of Spermatogonia

Spermatogonia are the stem cells that give rise to sperm.

While this technique is in its early stages of development, the idea is to freeze these cells for potential use in future reproduction therapies.

We incorporate these principles into our daily practice!
