  • Fertility treatments for men

    Treatment will depend on the underlying cause of infertility.

    Erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation: Medication, behavioural approaches, or both may help improve fertility.

    Varicocele: Surgically removing a varicose vein in the scrotum may help.

    Blockage of the ejaculatory duct: Sperm can be extracted directly from the testicles and injected into an egg in the laboratory.

    Retrograde ejaculation: Sperm can be taken directly from the bladder and injected into an egg in the laboratory.

    Surgery for epididymal blockage: A blocked epididymis can be surgically repaired. The epididymis is a coil-like structure in the testicles which helps store and transport sperm. If the epididymis is blocked, sperm may not be ejaculated properly.
