Incidence and Prevalence of Male Factor Infertility

  • 10% of the population (or 1/10 couples) trying to conceive suffer from infertility
  • In 1/3 cases the “culprit” is the male and in another 1/3 cases, the male and female both contribute to infertility
  • So, in fully 50% of couples who are trying to conceive, there is a male factor component
  • The earlier the diagnosis, the easier it is to formulate a plan
