Without treatment, as many as 20% of people who want to have children may meet struggles in having them. Those who have no trouble may not realize how difficult it can be. Of course, this becomes even more difficult with age. For best results, treatment should be started sooner rather than later.
You may be surprised to learn that if you've been wanting a child for over a year without success, you have infertility. Infertility can be tested and treated at the hospital. More often than expected, the cause of infertility is a male factor (poor sperm condition.) Even if you have had a child before, you may find that your sperm condition is not very good when you visit the clinic.
In order for a pregnancy to be established, it is necessary for the sperm and oocyte to meet, fertilize, and implant in the womb. Sperm must reach the fallopian tubes, where fertilization takes place. Generally, there are about 200 million sperm (50 to 100 million per ml.) By the time these move automatically and reach the ampulla of uterine tube, which is the fertilization site, eventually one sperm will fertilize with one oocyte. The main role of the male side is to fertilize first, but if any part of the processes is abnormal, that may be impossible.
Infertility treatment is performed by a couple. If you are struggling with infertility, both members of the couple should visit. Our hospital has a male infertility outpatient clinic and also supports "TESE,” which collects sperm directly from the testes. You can start with a consultation.
If you would like a male infertility examination, please contact "Oak Clinic Inquiries / Reservation Dial." We will inform you of the consultation hours.
