Genetic counselling for infertile men of known and unknown etiology.
TLDR
The provision of genetic counselling is an integral component in the investigation and treatment of male infertility and when the infertile couple/male is seeking assisted reproductive technology using intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), genetic counselling should include information regarding the risk of transmitting the genetic disorder, causing the male infertility, to the offspring.

Male sexual dysfunction and infertility associated with neurological disorders.

Ejaculation with penile vibratory stimulation can be done by some spinal cord injured men and their partners at home, followed by in-home insemination if circumstances and sperm quality are adequate, and the method of choice depends largely on the number of motile sperm in the ejaculate.
Semen quality impairment is associated with sexual dysfunction according to its severity.
TLDR
In males of infertile couples the prevalence of erectile dysfunction increases as a function of semen quality impairment severity, and all three groups of males with couple infertility showed a poorer erectile function, associated with an overall psychopathological burden, particularly with somatized anxiety.
