Male fertility is not as simple as many people think it is. In order to get your partner pregnant, you must produce at least 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen, have enough sex hormones that can trigger sperm production, and have proper sperm motility (movement.) Fortunately, almost 90 percent of infertility cases can be treated with medication, surgery, or assisted reproductive methods such as intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization (IVF). The fertility specialists at Pikes Peak Urology have decades of clinical experience diagnosing and treating fertility problems. You can trust our team to guide you on your journey to successfully conceiving a child.
About 1 in 8 American couples are affected by infertility. In up to half of those infertile couples, male infertility plays a partial role.

At Pikes Peak Urology, we understand how stressful and frustrating the inability to conceive can be when you want to start a family. That’s why we offer testing and cutting-edge infertility treatments.

If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for 12 months without success, make an appointment with one of our infertility specialists today.
