Most of the people relate infertility with females perhaps because they carry the baby. But infertility can also be majorly due to males. Both sexes are equally responsible for this deficiency of not being able to conceive the baby through normal ways. Male infertility is majorly due to low sperm production, abnormalities in the sperm functions and blockages that prevent the delivery of the sperm.
Not being able to conceive for either sex is very frustrating and disturbing, but thanks to science and technology everything has a cure in today’s date.
Symptoms of Male infertility:
There is no such sign of male infertility rather than being very clear about the fact that you can’t conceive normally on your own. Main symptoms can be:
- The inability to conceive.
- Sexual function problems like difficulty with ejaculation reduced sexual desire or erectile dysfunction.
- Swelling or pain in the testicular area.
- Having a lower than normal sperm count which is fewer than 15 million sperm per millilitre.
Causes for Male Infertility:
There can be many reasons for male infertility, some major ones being:
- Complete absence of sperms (Azoospermia)
- Low sperm count (Oligospremia)
- Abnormal sperm shape (Teratozoospermia)
- Problems in the sperm movement (Asthenozoospermia)
- Completely immobile, condition where the sperm is either dead or not moving at all (Necrozoospermia)
- Erectile dysfunction.
Diagnosis for Male infertility:
Diagnosis begins with a complete checkup of the man to determine his general state of health and identify any physical problems that may affect his fertility. The couple is asked to share information about their sexual habits. If the examination and history do not indicate any reason for the couple’s inability to conceive they are headed for a test for better results.
The tests include sperm analysis, clinicians at Indo Nippon IVF are the most experienced in the country to perform in depth analysis to determine sperm counts, viability (survival of the sperm), morphology (sperm quality and shape) and motility (ability to move to the egg and fertilize it). Additional test may include hormonal tests or genetic tests to evaluate his genetic signature and his DNA.
