For more severe cases in which the male partner has a very low concentration of moving sperm (e.g. fewer than 5 to 10 million) on at least two semen analyses, or if there are no sperm in the ejaculate (azoospermia), our physicians will often refer you to a urologist with experience in male fertility evaluation and treatment. It is important to remember that each semen specimen represents a 90-day ‘snapshot’ of a male partner’s sperm quantity/quality—lifestyle, medical, and/or surgical interventions to improve semen parameters will often take up to 6 months before it is clear if they have been beneficial. If you are a patient that is new to our practice, please contact us and we can help you find a male infertility specialist.
