What Are The Causes Of Male Infertility?

The most important causes of male infertility are:

Unhealthy sperms: Producing unhealthy sperms is one of the most important causes of male infertility. To make your partner pregnant, you should be able to produce healthy sperm. This is possible if one or both of your testicles are functioning normally. Your testes should produce enough testosterone and other hormones to produce healthy sperm.

Proper movement of sperms: Sperms are produced by the testicles. Delicate tubes transport sperms when they get mixed with semen. Proper movement of sperms from the testicles to get mixed with the semen is important for ejaculation out of the penis.

Enough quantity of sperm: Low sperm count is another important cause of male infertility. If your testes are producing low sperms, there are fewer chances that your sperm will fertilize your partner’s egg.

Sperm motility: If your sperms are not motile, the sperms will not be able to reach your partner’s egg to fertilize it.

What are the Medical causes?

Varicocele: A varicocele is a condition in which veins become swollen and is the most common cause of male infertility. Varicocele cause improper blood flow to the testes and this leads to unhealthy sperm formation.

Infection: Sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhoea, HPV, and inflammation of other sexual organs such as epididymitis may be responsible for causing poor sperm quality and quantity.

Tumours: Any kind of cancer of the male reproductive organs or nonmalignant tumours can also cause poor quality of sperm and imbalance of male hormones that cause infertility in men.

Undescended testes: In some men, testes fail to descend from the abdomen to the scrotum during fetal development. This may be the reason for infertility in some men.

Other causes

Lifestyle changes such as abuse of alcohol and other drugs, cigarette smoking, tobacco smoking, or obesity may be responsible for infertility in men.

What Are The Treatment Options For Male Infertility?

Treating the cause of male infertility may not be possible in all cases. Your doctor may suggest you and your partner opt for assisted reproductive treatment such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). Such treatments do not help to treat or cure male infertility but can help you and your partner to achieve conception.

There are many reasons for male infertility. If you and your partner are not able to achieve conception within a year after regular and unprotected intercourse for over a year, you should consult with a physician at Apollo Kondapur to get the right treatment.
