Male Fertility Specialist in Maryland

Male Factor Infertility

Roughly 15% of couples who wish to conceive a child are unable to because they are infertile. In a third of these couples, a significant cause is a male infertility resulting from low sperm production, abnormal sperm function, or blockages preventing sperm delivery. Illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems, lifestyle choices, and other factors contribute to this condition’s development.


About one in 20 men have low numbers of sperm. In addition, about one in every 100 men has no sperm. Find the help you need by contacting Montgomery Fertility Center’s experienced male fertility specialist. Maryland patients choose us because we provide personalized male infertility treatment that addresses their unique needs.

Male Infertility Causes

Some 66% of infertile men make low numbers of sperm or produce sperm that does not work correctly. The causes of such conditions include: 


Physical Problems – These are experienced by about one in five infertile men, including those who have had a vasectomy but now want to have children. Blockages or obstructions in the tubes leading from the testicles to the penis can also prevent sperm ejaculation.

Sexual Problems 

Low Levels of Hormones Made in the Brain

Genetic Problems – Infertile men can have chromosomal conditions affecting sperm production, such as: 

 Klinefelter Syndrome – Men with this condition were born with an extra X chromosome.

 Y Chromosome Deletions – This condition involves the absence of significant genetic material from a man’s Y chromosome necessary for sperm production.

 Down Syndrome 


Male Infertility Evaluation 

We evaluate male infertility by performing a physical exam and asking about your medical history. In addition, our team conducts a thorough semen analysis to assess the number, shape, and movement of your sperm. A blood test may be done to check the levels of hormones that control sperm production.


In some cases, your doctor will check if there is sperm in your urine, a common symptom of retrograde ejaculation. An ultrasound, MRI, or testicular biopsy may also be recommended.


Infertility is an entirely treatable condition for one in eight men. Once treatment is completed, couples can become pregnant naturally. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner seek in vitro fertilization or other assisted reproductive treatments.
