Misconceptions are very common in the world of infertility. One popular myth is that infertility is the woman's problem and that once that "problem" is fixed, the couple will be able to conceive. This could not be farther from the truth.

Infertility is not just a woman's problem. Although the estimates vary, approximately 15 percent of couples attempting their first pregnancy meet with failure.In fact, in nearly 30% of all infertility cases, the cause is attributed to a factor in the male and in an additional 30% of cases the cause is attributed to both male and female factors.

Male infertility is the inability of a man to successfully fertilize a woman's egg. Male infertility can be caused by any number of factors, including low sperm motility, abnormal sperm shape, varicocele, and oligospermia (low sperm count). Find out about male factor infertility and treatment options, as well as locate a fertility specialist.
