When couples have difficulty conceiving, they want to find the best doctors to address their specific concerns. Many fertility centers seem to specialize in female fertility issues which can make the search for male fertility doctors difficult. If you or your partner are dealing with male fertility concerns, our staff includes the best male fertility doctors in Manhattan.What sets apart the best male fertility doctors?
The doctors best equipped to address male fertility concerns are experts and pioneers in their fields. Look for physicians who have years of experience addressing the very fertility concerns you are facing. Your chosen physician should be active in the medical community and dedicated to finding new ways to addressing male fertility concerns. Our Sherman Silber, MD fits this bill perfectly, and has many medical achievements to his name including the very first vasectomy reversal using microsurgery.
What can I do to improve my fertility?
While you cannot treat the root cause of male infertility issues on your own, there are things you can do to improve your overall fertility. A healthy lifestyle can help to improve your overall fertility including:
- Wearing loose fitting underwear
- Managing your stress
- Eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables
- Regularly exercising
Can my sperm count be improved?
A man’s sperm count is generally determined by his genetics. This means, there is little that may be done medically to increase his sperm count. This information may come as a surprise to some couples, especially those who have been treated by other physicians in an attempt to raise sperm count. At New Hope, our goal is not to raise your sperm count. Instead, we work with the sperm your body produces naturally through ICSI and IVF to fertilize an egg.
What is the best way to achieve pregnancy with low sperm count?
The best way to address male fertility concerns is with IVF with ICSI. ICSI or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection places a single sperm directly into an egg that was retrieved with IVF. This method of fertilization is effective for sperm that have virtually no motility and can be done with sperm of very low quality. Our overall success rate for fertilization via ICSI is around 70 percent. Embryos fertilized with ICSI can be implanted in the mother’s uterus or banked for use during future cycles.
