Andrology is the study of male illnesses and health, particularly male reproductive and urological issues that are specific to males. Andrology is concerned with male infertility, erectile dysfunction, impotence, andropause (also known as male menopause), and male contraception. Andrology is the male equivalent of gynaecology, which deals with medical disorders relating to the female reproductive system.
A medical practitioner who specialises in male reproductive disorders and male sexual dysfunction is known as an andrologist. An Andrologist will design a treatment plan that is most suited for the patient while treating patients with infertility concerns Steroids or antibiotics may be used as a therapy approach to improve the quality of a patient's sperm. When sperm production bottlenecks are the primary cause of male infertility, surgery is the preferred method of treatment.
