by Varun Mishra Web Designer

Drastic changes in lifestyle is causing infertility problem in couples. Infertility is affecting 1 out of every 6 couples. When male partner has the problem it is called male infertility. Male infertility issues primarily include low sperm count and low sperm motility.  Identifying the causes of this problem and working on them is necessary. Here are most common causes of low sperm count:

  1. Heavy Alcohol Consumption : Alcohol is itself a toxin that can destroy your sperms, damage your liver and damaged liver & you cannot remove toxins from your body. More than three drinks a day can be fatal, it increases conversion of testosterone. This definitely is not good for your sperm count and quality. Low sperm count treatments and low sperm motility treatment are easily available in every city considering the scope of this problem.

  1. Overheating of your Body : Exposure to extreme temperatures affects your sperm production hence the temperature of testacles should be maintained within few degrees. So, it's better to avoid prolonged and frequent use of hot tubs and saunas. Wearing tight clothes, sitting for long period overheats your testacles which ultimately lowers the sperm production and sperm quality. There is no need to panic if you suspect you have such problem, seek low sperm motility treatment at nearest fertility clinic.

  1. Stress: Stress can affect hormones needed to produce sperm. Testosterone is necessary for sperm production and stress hormones negatively affect enzymes responsible for production of testosterone in testicles. With rise in infertility problems among couples, low sperm count treatment is easily available.

  1. Infections: Inflammation of testicles and some sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea or HIV can interfere with sperm production or sperm health. If bacteria are present in seminal fluid, body produces chemicals that can obstruct functioning of sperms. Even if few infections can result in permanent damage to testicles, sperm can still be retrieved most of the times.

  1. Exposure to chemicals : Prolonged exposure to certain chemicals like benzene, toluene, xylene, pesticides, organic solvents, herbicides, painting materials and lead may cause low sperm count. In rural areas where pesticides are used in farming, sperm count is found to be very less in men as compared to men from urban areas.

Obesity: Obese male are observed to have less fertility as compared to non-obese men. Obesity can directly affect the sperm count and most likely have seminal fluid with no sperm at all. In such cases, low sperm count treatment can be the best choice!
