Dealing with Male Infertility

Infertility is a term that has most often been referred to in correlation to female infertility. Male infertility has always been a subject of taboo. In the present scenario, it is no longer a term confined to women, but a problem with needs to be addressed for the members of the male gender also. The idea that male fertility is eternal is a misconception now.

The hormone testosterone is produced in the male testes that is responsible for the onset of puberty in males. The most fertile age is from 30 to 35 years and after that, the decline starts but these days the decline in male fertility starts at an early age. The reasons are countless:

  1. Medical reason: Infection which sometimes leads to swelling in the veins
  2. Retrograde semen enters the bladder
  3. Tumor or cancer or other malignant bodies
  4. Genetic problems like cystic fibrosis
  5. Hormone imbalance hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands and low testosterone levels
  6. Defects of tubes: Tubes that carry sperm may have some blockage
  7. Problems with intercourse: Such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, painful intercourse, anatomical abnormalities and less libido
  8. Certain medication like steroids to enhance muscle power surgeries like prostrate, large intestine and rectal cancer
  9. Environmental factors like industrial and chemical exposure like pesticides, painting materials, heavy metals like lead, X ray radiations, overheating of testicles, frequent use of saunas, working on laptop for a long time
  10. Lifestyle disorders
  • Drug use: Steroids stimulates muscles but shrinks testicles and sperm production is reduced
  • Alcohol: it can lower testosterone levels, cause erectile dysfunction and decrease sperm production
  • Tobacco: lower sperm count and reduces their motility
  • Overweight: BMI should be less than 25 otherwise it will cause swelling and hormone changes
  • Stress: A byproduct of modern lifestyle, paralyzes our whole-body system because it affects the brain and brain is the driver of the whole body
