What you'll learn

In this course, we cover the basics of "natural" conception, oral medications (e.g. clomiphene, letrozole), IUI and IVF. We then analyze the data on how often Latinx communities access fertility treatment and the comparable rates of success. We then look at how factors like PCOS, BMI, male factor infertility, tubal factor infertility, and environmental exposures can warrant adjustments in approach and rates of success.

Male Factor Infertility

Male factor infertility impacts anywhere between a third and half of a couple's difficulty in conceiving. The primary factors often end up being related to varicocele or some form of azoospermia. While a semen analysis can help characterize if there is an issue, the test can be inconsistent, difficult to interpret.
