His and Hers Fertility Testing
Our Kansas Fertility Clinic Offers Male Infertility Options
Dr. Gehlbach sees male infertility patients as part of a couple’s fertility workup. This appointment will include evaluation of the male and female partner, and testing will run concurrently until we arrive at a diagnosis. Dr. Gehlbach refers some cases to a urologist.
Treating Both Partners Is Essential in Assessing Male Infertility
When a couple struggles with infertility, they often assume the issue rests with the female partner. Approximately 40 percent of infertility cases result from male factor infertility. At Midwest Reproductive Center, Dr. Dan Gehlbach sees couples facing infertility and offers treatment options for both partners.
Often, no signs of infertility are present with male fertility issues. To make an accurate infertility diagnosis, we take a complete medical history to look for any male infertility risk factors such as congenital defects, impotence, erectile dysfunction, varicoceles or past cancer treatments. As well, we will perform blood work, and a semen analysis, which can check for sperm abnormalities like low motility or reduced sperm counts.

Once Dr. Gehlbach concludes female and male testing, he will review the findings and explain the best course of action. In most cases, male factor infertility can be overcome with infertility treatments, including intrauterine insemination (IUI), or in-vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
We also provide guidance and options for male patients looking for fertility preservation before cancer treatment.
