ART presents treatment options that can provide solutions to male infertility. When the sperm analysis is abnormal and a male factor as the cause of infertility is identified, it is critical to investigate the root of the problem. Basic therapies may be employed if low sperm count appears to be hormone-related, caused by an illness, or connected to a male anatomic anomaly. If none of these methods work, or if the condition of male infertility is more severe, IVF is typically the treatment of choice.

When there are several reproductive issues, such as a low sperm count along with a blocked tube, trouble ovulation, or the female’s advanced age, IVF is a suitable alternative. IVF, by raising the chances of fertilisation of the egg, can be the most successful treatment for couples in these conditions.

The following are the reasons for this:

  • Sperm with low motility can still be utilised in IVF to fertilise eggs. The insufficiently motile sperm do not have to travel far to reach the egg when they are placed close together in a laboratory dish, and fertilisation can be regulated in the laboratory.
  • IVF can help people with low sperm counts fertilise their eggs.

The sperm have little risk of "getting lost" in the female reproductive canal since the egg and sperm meet in controlled laboratory conditions. Normally, sperms follow a certain path to reach the egg, but a number of sperms drop off along the way. Fertilisation under normal conditions of the body is impossible if there aren't enough sperms to make the journey to the egg.

IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is used to treat severe male factor. ICSI involves precise selection of a single morphologically and genetically robust sperm and injecting it directly into the egg, increasing the likelihood of fertilisation. ICSI is employed when sperm is extracted from a testicle biopsy, also known as TESE (testicular sperm extraction), or when a frozen sperm specimen is used.
