Male Infertility Services

Fertility issues can affect men and women equally. If you and your partner have had difficulty getting pregnant, it is important to explore all potential causes of infertility. The Kaiser Permanente Centers for Reproductive Health offer a range of advanced male infertility services for San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento-area residents.

As part of the Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) consult and preliminary testing process, a semen sample is requested for a thorough semen analysis. Based on the results of the semen analysis, your REI provider may refer you to a Kaiser Permanente urologist specializing in male infertility. The urologist will perform additional tests and offer greater insight into the causes and treatment options for infertility.

If you are not currently pursuing care with an REI specialist but would like to consult with a male infertility specialist for other reasons such as a vasectomy reversal, please contact the Kaiser Permanente Oakland Male Infertility Department directly. Visit our Male Infertility FAQ for answers to common questions.
