After the doctor has determined possible causes of the infertility, a course of treatment can then be planned. Sometimes simple instructions, like knowing when having sex is most likely to produce a pregnancy, are all that is needed. In many cases, medications are indicated, while in other cases, the woman may require surgery or other forms of treatment. If medications are unhelpful or surgery is not appropriate, other specialized techniques will be offered.

Medications can help solve hormonal problems and ease infections in women with fertility problems. Surgery to repair reproductive organs may also resolve a woman's infertility.


A number of drugs can be prescribed to ease male fertility problems, but their effectiveness varies widely. If investigations suggest that surgery may help with male infertility, then depending on the cause, surgery may be used to deal with: Varicose (or swollen) veins in the man's scrotum, helping to restore proper sperm movement, An obstruction in the man's reproductive organs, including the epididymis, vas deferens and ejaculatory duct. These blockages can halt the sperm's passage or prevent it from mixing with semen.
