Should all men being evaluated for couple infertility have an endocrine and reproductive urology evaluation?
Although it is not currently standard care, the work by Trussell et al. in this issue of Fertility and Sterility suggests that endocrine and reproductive urology evaluation of male partners in infertile couples may provide useful insight as they demonstrate the importance of male testosterone levels for sperm morphology and live birth among couples seeking ovarian stimulation with the use of intrauterine insemination (1). Given the importance of characterizing the utility of a baseline work-up for all male partners seeking infertility care, we carefully evaluated the evidence presented here and note some key limitations and potential next steps as we seek to move research aims and clinical practice forward in this area.
