Common Male Fertility Drugs

In general, male fertility treatment doesn’t work as well as female treatment. Getting to normal hormone or sperm levels can take up to three years of therapy.

If you still don’t fall pregnant, in vitro fertilization (IVF), is another option. IVF may be combined with fertility drugs.

NOTE: There are many sources claiming some “natural” wonder drug or treatment that will get you pregnant. Rather than rely on old wives’ tales or an unregulated drug, contact your doctor. A proper examination of both you and your partner is the first step if you struggle to fall pregnant.
