Male Infertility & Reasons Behind It

Male Infertility & Reasons Behind It

Couples who fail to conceive for a year after having frequent unprotected sex are considered infertile. Male infertility is used to classify infertility when the female partner is known to be fertile. In India, an estimated 8-9% of men and about 15% of couples suffer from infertility.

Male infertility is usually due to problems with spermatogenesis. This may be due to hormonal problems, decreased testicular function, or obstruction of the urogenital tract in men.

Sperm production in the testicles can be reduced by:

  • Hereditary disorders such as Klinefelter syndrome
  • Varicocele
  • Inflammation or damage to the testicles
  • Major illness
  • Cryptorchidism
  • Abnormal hormonal function resulting from genes, infections, cancerous or noncancerous tumors, or surgery
  • Testosterone therapy
  • Abuse or accident
  • Use of opiates
  • Obesity
  • Drug Consumptipm

Sperm function can be affected by:

  • Genetic factors
  • Age
  • An infection or inflammation of the urogenital tract is caused by sexually transmitted bacteria such as chlamydia and other microorganisms.

A disorder that causes part of the male reproductive system not to develop at all. In men with congenital absence of bilateral vas deferens, it may interfere with sperm transport. Other men may have a blockage in their reproductive system due to scarring or accidental injury during surgery, or for unknown reasons.

Ejaculation problems and erectile dysfunction can cause male infertility. Lifestyle factors such as alcohol and tobacco use can contribute to infertility. Engaging in high-intensity sports and activities that can expose the testicles to high temperatures (such as saunas and occupational exposure) can also be the reason behind it.

Diagnosis of male infertility

To find out the cause of infertility, doctors usually do semen or blood tests to measure hormone levels. They may check for infections or have an ultrasound to check the testicles and other scrotal contents. In some cases, a testicular biopsy may be needed for diagnosis.

Male fertility treatment

Treatment of male infertility depends on its cause. If your infertility is part of your lifestyle, your doctor can help you change your behavior. Alternative treatments can also be found if medications for illnesses may be causing infertility. Doctors may prescribe hormone therapy and other drugs to treat infertility. Surgery may be done to repair varicocele or urogenital tract obstruction if it is the cause of infertility.
