“Just keep swimming, just keep swimming” may best be remembered as Dory’s mantra. But it’s also likely echoed by millions of couples that are dealing with male factor infertility.

Male infertility. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the male partner is either the sole or a contributing cause in 4 of 10 cases of infertility. Factors that may contribute to male factor infertility include past infections, hormonal imbalances, lifestyle, environment, or medical conditions. Beginning in their mid-30s, men also have a biological clock that can contribute to a gradual reduction in fertility. And after age 40, the risk of passing on genetic abnormalities to their children increases.1
