Fertility Solutions for Men

Solutions for Men

When you and your partner are tackling the issue of infertility, it’s reassuring to know there are a number of treatment solutions available to you.

‘Male factor infertility’ is a term used to describe a range of conditions, and one or more may apply in your circumstances. However, there may be other reasons – e.g. a lifestyle choice about wanting to postpone having a family, or failed vasectomy reversal – that explain your need for treatment too.

Therefore, in the following table we refer to ‘scenarios’ rather than conditions. Alongside each scenario, you’ll find links to all of the appropriate solutions we offer:

The above list is not exhaustive and, if you would like to discuss your own set of circumstances with one of our fertility specialists, you can have an individual consultation to explore your options. If you are funding your own treatment, attending a consultation does attract a consultation fee but does not commit you to any treatment.
