Male Infertility: The first step is a sperm analysis to count the number, determine movement, and abnormal forms. Step 2 is an examination of the patient including the scrotum looking for a varicocoele.(swollen vessel). Thirdly the MD will determine what is needed next and whether medication like Clomid Rx can be helpful to impact the sperm production. All of this requires a MD visit.
