Our Kansas fertility clinic offers male infertility treatments
Dr. Dan 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. Our Kansas City fertility doctor 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% of infertility cases stem from male factor infertility. At Midwest Reproductive Center, Dr. Gehlbach sees couples facing infertility and offers treatment options for both partners.
Often, there are no signs of male infertility. To make an accurate infertility diagnosis, we take a complete medical history to look for infertility risk factors, including congenital defects, impotence, erectile dysfunction, varicoceles or past cancer treatments. We will also perform blood work and a semen analysis, which can check for sperm abnormalities like low motility or reduced sperm counts.
Treating male fertility issues
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 can also perform treatments using donor sperm.
We provide guidance and options for male patients looking for fertility preservation before cancer treatment.
