Men’s Reproductive Health

Overview

Men’s reproductive health is an important part of the fertility evaluation. Up to 50% of couples struggling with infertility will have a male factor. A semen analysis is an essential step in the initial workup, and results may guide recommendations for treatment. PNWF also offers sperm cryopreservation for those interested in future family building. This may include individuals needing cancer treatment, pursuing gender-affirming therapy, or planning a vasectomy.

PNWF Approach

Sperm parameters can be important indicators of overall health and wellbeing for men. In some situations we refer male patients to a reproductive urologist who can provide expert consultation and discuss potential treatment.

PNWF works closely with Dr. Kevin A. Ostrowski, a reproductive urologist based at Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland. Our providers collaborate with him to develop the best treatment plan, and he is able to offer surgical sperm retrieval procedures at our Seattle clinic.
