Male infertility can be defined as the failure of getting the partner pregnant in 12 months despite having unprotected sexual intercourse. One in every eight couples faces issues in conceiving and about one of every three cases of infertility is because of the man alone. 

Let us dig deeper to know more about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of male infertility

Causes of male infertility

Take a glance at the following possible causes of male infertility.

        Sperm disorders – These include disorders like the inability to produce sperms, not fully grown sperms, failure of sperms to move the right way, low sperm count, and oddly shaped sperms.

        Undescended testicle

        Varicocele – One of the most common causes of male infertility that accounts for nearly 38% of the cases. These are the collection of bulging or swollen veins above the testicle and result due to the restricted or blockage of blood flow to the scrotum, causing problems in temperature regulation. Low sperm count is the outcome of increased temperature which disturbs the production of sperms.

        Hormone problems

        Chromosomal defects – A disorder that passes through inheritance and led to the abnormal development of male reproductive organs.

        Chemotherapy for cancer

        Anti-seizure medicines or anabolic steroids
