Symptoms of Infertility in Men

The only symptom of infertility is an inability to conceive. A couple should seek help for infertility if they are unable to conceive after one year of regular sexual intercourse without contraception. You will both be evaluated to determine if the infertility is related to problems in one partner, the other, or both.
