There are no visible signs through which you can identify whether the male partner is infertile or not as there is normal intercourse ,erections, and ejaculations as well as the sperms also look very normal in appearance .Therefore, there are no visible signs of male infertility and it can be diagnosed with the medical tests only.
Treatment for male infertility varies from male to male depending upon the cause of infertility. Long treatment over the months to years are necessary for achieving infertility.
Men having a blockage in the ducts conveying the sperm ejaculation from testis undergoes the treatment to correct the blockage. Alternative to this is the assisted reproductive technologies using the sperm retrieved from the testis.
In certain cases (1 to 2 percent), male infertility is due to problems in the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. In this case, treatment with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), recombinant human follicle stimulating hormone (rhFSH), also called gonadotropin treatment, is often suggested.
Gonadotropin treatment is started with injections of hCG three times per week (or in some cases every other day) for up to six months. Blood tests are used to examine blood testosterone levels and to adjust the dose if required. If sperm cells do not appear in semen even after six months treatment, recombinant human follicle stimulating hormone (rhFSH) is added to the injection. Its success rate is high as most men will develop sperm during ejaculation. Approximately one to two years of treatment is needed to achieve normal fertility. The cost of these treatments is comparatively high.
Treatment is not currently available for some of the other type of male infertility. For example, when the sperm-producing structures of the testes have been severely damaged or are abnormal which is the case with men with certain chromosomal abnormalities such as Klinefelter syndrome and small deletions in the Y (male-specific) chromosome.
