Male Infertility:

The next three blogs will discuss male infertility.

Male tube blockages:
Any obstructions in the vas deferens or epididymis (the tubes that transport fertile sperm).

Possible symptoms - None.

Possible solutions - Surgery to repair the varicoceles or other obstruction.

Coastal IVF Success rates - About 40 per cent are able to impregnate their partner within a year of surgery, most within six to nine months. Results after Testicular biopsy & sperm injection are no different from standard IVF ie around 40-50% clinical pregnancy per embryo transfer.
