The branch of medicine concerned with men’s health, particularly male infertility and sexual dysfunction. It is the male counterpart of gyneacology.
Male infertility is not something you hear much about on the news, so you may be surprise to know that male infertility is almost as likely as female infertility to be involved in a couples’ inability to achieve pregnancy. The good news is that most cases of male infertility can be resolved either by treating the problem or using fertility treatments.
Of men diagnosed with male infertility, 10% to 15% will have azoospermia (a complete lack of sperm).Azoospermia is present in about 1% of the general population and can be treated with ICSI. An Azoospermic male can also become a biological father.
