Fertility, in one sense, is the barometer of a person's overall health, all things being equal. In order to conceive, a person must have a certain level of fertility that requires a sufficiently healthy body to maintain, whether a person is male or female. Fertility can be fleeting as well; it has been estimated that nearly 6 million Americans are infertile at any given time. The standard definition of infertility is the inability of a couple of childbearing age to conceive a child after one year of regular intercourse without the use of contraceptives. Because the large majority of couples can conceive within this time frame, it is recommended that those who do not should be assessed for fertility problems. This chapter focuses on infertility in men and natural ways to address it.
