Southeastern Fertility Center - Infertility and IVF Clinic - Located near Charleston, South Carolina
An infertile man can be offered different types of therapies. There is an extensive battery of therapeutic options available for male disorders. However, if initial simple therapies have failed, or if the sperm disorders are of moderate to severe intensity, then the couple is offered either intrauterine insemination therapy or advanced reproductive technologies, such as IVF with ICSI. Intrauterine inseminations using the partner's sperm can be performed in couples suffering from male infertility if the sperm disorders are mild or moderate. Advanced techniques are needed and are much more efficient, for many types of male infertility. These include in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). ICSI has revolutionized the treatment of male infertility. Today, we can effectively treat almost any type of sperm disorder including very low sperm count, motility, or morphology, presence of antisperm antibodies and even men without any sperm in their ejaculate (azoospermia). In these cases, sperm can usually be retrieved from the testes or epididymis at SEFC by very simple outpatient surgical procedures combined with ICSI.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) provides an alternative method of achieving a pregnancy for couples who have tried and have been unsuccessful with other fertility treatments. In
many cases, it is the therapy of first choice. In a normal conception cycle, an egg is released from the ovary and unites with a sperm cell that has traveled through the
uterus and fallopian tubes after being deposited in the vagina during intercourse. When the sperm penetrates the egg, fertilization occurs. The fertilized egg develops further as it moves through the tube into the uterus. Implantation does not occur until several days after fertilization. The IVF procedure allows the union of the egg and the sperm and early growth of the embryo to occur in the laboratory. For a pregnancy to result through IVF, four steps must be successfully completed. Pregnancy cannot occur if even one step of the procedures fails.
