Mostly IUI or ICSI: We may do hormonal tests, looking for low testosterone, high estrogen, thyroid or prolactin issues or abnormal lh, fsh levels. A few men get better sperm with treatment of hormone problems. Mostly we treat mild to medium sperm problems with intrauterine inseminations (iui); severe sperm problems need ivf with icsi or donor sperm. No sperm or very severe sperm problems need surgical sperm retrieval.

It depends.: It's always best to try and find out why someone is infertile before recommending treatment. The man would undergo a history, physical exam, semen analysis, blood testing for hormones and possibly other factors, and then the treatment would be geared toward correcting or overcoming the discovered problem(s).
