Prevalence

It is important to note that infertility can occurjust as equally in men as in women, with 30% of infertility attributable to men and 30% to women, while another 30% is attributed to both partners and the remaining 10% is related to unknown factors. Other statistics indicate that the annual incidence of male infertility is at least 2 million cases, which equates to an incidence rate of approximately 1 in 136 men, or 0.74% of the men in the United States.1 In addition, more than 4.5 million couples in the United States do not conceive at their first attempt and more than one in two (50%) of the men involved have irreversible infertility and are not able to father children.
