The inability of a man to make a woman pregnant can be frustrating, but there are several treatments for male infertility. Male infertility can be caused by abnormal sperm function, low sperm production, or blockages that can hinder the delivery of sperm. According to Mayoclinic, here are factors that can increase the risk of infertility in men:
1. Using alcohol
2. The use of certain illegal drugs
3. Overheating the testicles
4. Being overweight
5. Having experienced trauma to the testicles
6. Being exposed to toxins
7. Having certain infections in the past or present
8. Having a fertility disorder in a blood relative or being born with a fertility disorder
9. Having medical treatments, such as radiation therapy, surgery, or taking certain medications.
10. Having certain medical conditions, such as tumors or sickle cell disease.

1. Maintain a healthy weight
2. Don’t smoke
3. Don’t get a vasectomy.
