MMF: MaleFactorMale factor infertility shines light upon the fact that approximately one third of infertile couples attribute their trouble conceiving to the man, not the woman, despite social prejudices. Male factor infertility is characterized by any ‘factors’ that lead to the infertility of a man, including low mobility sperm, low sperm count, anatomically obstructions, or the presence of male anti-sperm antibodies. By using semen analysis, hormonal imbalance tests, and urinalysis, most causes of male infertility can be detected. Once the problem is identified, varying modes of treatment and alternative modes of conception can be considered and utilized.

By offering a non-spermicidal collection condom, the MaleFactor Pak allows for comfortable at-home collection of high-quality, easily transportable semen samples. This sample can then be sent to a laboratory for evaluation, and may help identify what the source of infertility is for the couple.

In these cases, the infertility may be caused by insufficient male factor, and limited mobility or survival of the man’s sperm. To take advantage of the openness of the fallopian tubes and aid the sperm, MIFT first removes an egg, which is then mixed out of the body with the sperm, and injected back into the fallopian tubes for in vivo fertilization. In this way, MIFT is used instead and not in addition to in vitro fertilization.
