Male Infertility
Male infertility may be due to:
  * A decrease in sperm count
  * Sperm being blocked from being released
  * Sperm that do not work properly

Male infertility can be caused by:

  * Environmental pollutants
  * Being in high heat for prolonged periods
  * Birth defects
  * Heavy use of alcohol, marijuana, or cocaine
  * Too little or too much hormones
  * Impotence
  * Infection
  * Older age
  * Cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation
  * Scarring from sexually transmitted diseases, injury, or surgery
  * Retrograde ejaculation
  * Smoking
  * Use of certain drugs, such as cimentidine, spironolactone and nitrofurantoin

In healthy couples under age 30 who have sex regularly, the chance of getting pregnant is about 25 - 30% per month.

A woman’s peak fertility occurs in her early 20s. After age 35 (and especially 40), the chances that a woman can get pregnant drop considerably.
