Despite a flourishing urban myth that the female partner is more frequently the cause of a couple’s infertility, the cause is actually equally distributed between men and women.  Infertility is due to a male factor alone in approximately 30% of infertile couples, while combined male and female factors comprise an additional 20%, therefore the male is involved in approximately 50% of infertile couples.  Infertility is a common condition, and it is estimated that over 7 million couples seek infertility care annually in the United States each year, although the frequency of a dedicated male factor evaluation with a urologist is significantly less common.
