Male infertility is common and affects about 40% of infertile couples. Diagnosis of male infertility is a simple test, which only requires a semen sample.  At Dominion Fertility, we routinely perform and are experts in the field.

The best treatment for male infertility is IVF and ICSI for the majority of patients.  Varicocelectomy is rarely helpful and can significantly delay proven treatments. Have yourself or your partner tested today at Dominion Fertility and receive a full report from our experts.

At age 30 years old, a couple with male factor infertility for 2 years, went to an infertility clinic.

Her evaluation was completely normal.  Her husband’s semen analysis showed 3.5M/30% motility/2% normal morphology, obviously a severe male factor.  They advised a varicocelectomy.  Post op his count diminished to 2.5M and 2 years later, no pregnancy.

She then came to Dominion Fertility, underwent stimulated IVF, obtained 20 eggs and produced 4 PGT normal embryos.  After her first embryo transfer, she became pregnant and now has 3 more embryos cryopreserved for her next baby.
