Major causes of infertility in men

Spread the love

This is the inability to cause pregnancy in a fertile female.

The American Pregnancy Association reports that 1 out of 6 couples are affected by infertility.

When it comes to infertility, there are other symptoms except for not getting pregnant. One is some signs of hormonal problems like changes in hair growth and sexual function.

The causes of male infertility include:

Problems with sperm delivery

This happens due to sexual dysfunctions, such as: premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, genetic diseases like cystic fibrosis (a condition that affects the cells which produce mucus, sweat, and digestive juices) and any damage of the reproductive organs affects the sperm delivery.

Testicular disorder

Sperms are produced in the testis, where they are protected from the outside environment.

Once the testicles are damaged they can have a huge impact on your fertility, which affects the quality and quantity of sperm. Exposing your testis to environments with radiation and too much heat also affects the sperm quality. Make sure to keep the testicles in an environment that is cool.

Other causes of testicular disorders include infections, testicular surgery, and undescended testicles.

Ejaculation disorders

This is whereby ejaculation is slow. There are different types, which include premature, inhibited and retrograde. Premature ejaculation refers to an ejaculation that occurs before or very soon after penetration. Inhibited ejaculation is slow to occur. Retrograde ejaculation happens during orgasm, when the ejaculation is forced back to the bladder instead of going through the urethra and at the end of the penis.

Lifestyle choices

To have a healthy reproductive system what you choose to eat matters. Poor lifestyle choices include drinking excessive alcohol, smoking, drugs and bad eating, which can lead to chronic diseases like diabetes.

Practising unsafe sex leads to sexually transmitted infections which can lead to sperm blockage.

All these damage the quality and quantity of sperms.
