Understanding Male Fertility Challenges

Male fertility can be impacted by a range of conditions, each presenting unique hurdles in the quest for fatherhood:

Azoospermia: This condition is defined by the complete absence of sperm in the ejaculate, signifying either an obstructive issue (in which a physical blockage prevents sperm ejaculation) or a non-obstructive issue related to sperm production within the testes.

Oligospermia: Characterized by a sperm count lower than 15 million per milliliter of semen, oligospermia can make natural conception more challenging.

Cryptozoospermia: When further testing in men with azoospermia reveals small quantities of sperm, a new diagnosis of cryptozoospermia is given. This opens up additional avenues for fertility intervention.

Varicocele: Varicoceles are enlarged veins within the scrotum that can adversely affect sperm production and quality due to elevated temperatures and disrupted blood flow. This often starts in adolescence and sometimes leads to discomfort.

Comprehensive Fertility Services Offered in Pasadena

The Turek Clinic provides a suite of fertility treatments, each designed to address specific aspects of male fertility:

  • Semen Analysis: This analysis assesses sperm count, morphology, and motility. It helps Dr. Turek to identify underlying issues and recommend targeted treatments.
  • Sperm Mapping: Also known as FNA mapping, this innovative technique allows for the precise identification of viable sperm in cases of non-obstructive azoospermia. It facilitates their extraction for use in assisted reproduction and can find sperm in 30% of azoospermic men after a failed microTESE.
  • Microsurgical Reconstruction: Tailored to improve fertility outcomes, these procedures focus on repairing or reconnecting components of the male reproductive system to enhance natural sperm release.
  • Sperm Retrieval: This process extracts sperm not released through natural ejaculation, making it available for use in fertility procedures such as IVF or ICSI. Following sperm mapping Dr. Turek can retrieve sperm in almost half of men with azoospermia without needing to perform an microTESE.
  • Testicular Biopsy: Useful particularly in cases of non-obstructive azoospermia, this procedure involves the removal of a small tissue sample from the testes for further examination and assessment of fertility potential.
  • Varicocele Repair: Aimed at correcting varicoceles, this procedure seeks to improve blood flow and reduce testicular temperature, thereby enhancing sperm production and overall fertility.
  • Ejaculatory Duct Resection: By addressing obstructions within the ejaculatory ducts, this technique can improve sperm count and the likelihood of achieving pregnancy.
  • Reverse Vasectomy: For men looking to restore fertility after a vasectomy, this surgical intervention reconnects the vas deferens, allowing for the natural release of sperm.

Beyond Fertility: Comprehensive Sexual Health Services

Recognizing the broader spectrum of male sexual health, The Turek Clinic also offers a range of services addressing conditions that can impact overall well-being and fertility:

  • Low Testosterone (Hypogonadism): Through hormone treatments, men experiencing low testosterone levels can see improvements in mood, libido, and fertility.
  • Testicular Implants: For those who have lost one or both testicles due to cancer, injury, or other reasons, Dr. Turek provides innovative solutions with testicular implants, enhancing confidence and quality of life.
  • Peyronie’s Disease: Addressing the formation of fibrous scar tissue within the penis, the clinic offers treatments to alleviate pain and correct curvature, thus improving sexual function and comfort.
  • Erectile and Ejaculatory Disorder: With targeted interventions, conditions such as erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory issues are treated to improve sexual performance and the chances of natural conception.

Painless Nitrous-Oxide Vasectomy

The vas deferens, which are the tubes that transport sperm from the testicles to the urethra, are snipped or sealed in a vasectomy. This prevents sperm from being released with ejaculate during sexual intercourse, effectively making the man sterile. Dr. Turek has perfected the no-scalpel option in combination with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to prevent pain and anxiety.
