Male infertility contributes to the inability to conceive in over 40% of infertility cases worldwide. There are several factors responsible for infertility in men, leading to sperm-related problems that make spontaneous conception difficult.
Diagnosis of male infertility usually begins with a semen analysis-a simple test which provides detailed information about the quantity and quality of the sperm being produced. Based on results of the semen analysis, your doctor may advise further testing or proceed to devise a personalised fertility treatment plan.
SPERM-RELATED CONDITIONS THAT CAUSE INFERTILITY IN MEN:-
Oligospermia: poor sperm count (below 20 million sperm per ml semen)
Azoospermia: nil sperm
Abnormal sperm morphology: abnormal shape, size or structure
Asthenospermia: poor sperm motility-inability of sperm to swim through the female's reproductive organs to reach the egg
