Male infertility cure with expertise that you can trust, in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas
Led by Dr. Jeffrey Buch, a nationally recognized authority on men’s reproductive conditions, Legacy Male Health patients in the Dallas suburb of Frisco Texas benefit from convenient and precise diagnostics (such as on-site semen analysis) conducted in our health care center. Such analysis tells us an awful lot about the potential sources of fertility challenges, which will help us recommend a male infertility cure to our patients and their partners.
We may find that the total number of sperm per milliliter of semen is low (fewer than 20 million). Additionally, we may detect that less than half of the sperm analyzed move well (motility), or that there are abnormalities affecting the morphology or shape and size of the sperm which predicts egg penetration ability of the sperm. The chemical makeup and volume of semen that is produced can also provide clues as to what may be interfering with you and your partner’s ability to conceive. Depending on the results derived from your semen sample, other tests may also be ordered; for example, hormone, genetic, and specialty testing. So, we can further zero in on the source of your fertility challenges. In this manner, we can also detect serious medical conditions that may require immediate treatment.
Following a thorough evaluation, Legacy Male Health may determine that sperm production or function has been adversely affected by health conditions, such as diabetes, or by infections. Varicocele may also be to blame. These enlarged veins in the scrotum are common sources of low sperm counts and low sperm quality. Varicoceles, which tend to develop over time, can also affect the development of testicles or cause them to shrink.
A wide range of sexual, medical, and structural problems can also interfere with sperm’s ability to reach and fertilize an egg. Premature ejaculation, genetic conditions like cystic fibrosis, and injury to sex organs can also affect sperm delivery.
Exposure to radiation and chemotherapy as part of cancer treatment, or to environmental toxins like pesticides and chemicals may also impair sperm production. Additional risk factors for male infertility range from excessive alcohol and tobacco use, to frequent use of hot tubs and hot baths (the temperature is the problem). A healthy lifestyle generally supports healthy fertility, even though most types of infertility in men aren’t preventable.

As you can see, there are numerous potential causes of infertility among men. So, the treatment that Dr. Buch recommends can vary considerably from patient to patient. Some medications are associated with improved testicular function and an increase in sperm production and quality. Depending on your needs, surgical intervention may include repairing problematic varicoceles or reversing sperm blockages. Services also include obtaining sperm when counts or ejaculatory function are impaired, sometimes for use with planned reproductive treatments to enhance the chances of getting pregnant.
Everyone can benefit from taking care of themselves. Minimizing or abstaining from harmful substances and behaviors, and embracing healthy habits like moderate, daily exercise can help.
