What Is Male Infertility?
Male infertility can simply be defined as a man’s inability to conceive children despite unprotected sexual intercourse. Generally, men not being able to impregnate their partners despite frequent unprotected sex refer to male infertility specialists to seek medical help.
Male infertility can be caused due to abnormal functioning of sperms, low sperm count, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperms during ejaculation. Apart from the physical problems, it results in unhappy marriages, low self-esteem, and other psychological problems in men.
What Makes A Man Fertile?
Male fertility is pretty complicated and one needs to be aware of the same before approaching a male infertility specialist. Here are some of the major conditions that need to be met for a man to impregnate his partner:
The most basic and important requirement for impregnating a woman is the production of healthy sperm. This often results due to proper growth and formation of the reproductive organs during puberty. For healthy sperm production, a man needs to have at least one of his testicles to be functioning properly. Moreover, the body needs to produce enough testosterone and other relevant hormones to maintain the production of healthy sperm.
For successful impregnation, it is important for sperms to be carried within the semen. Once sperms are produced within the testicles, they are transported and mixed with semen by delicate tubes.
Another important condition to be met for successful impregnation is having enough sperm count. Low sperm count decreases the chances of a sperm fertilizing the partner’s egg. Generally, a sperm count of lower than 15 million/mm semen is considered to be low.
For sperm to fertilize an egg, it is important to have the right sperm motility or function. If the functionality of sperm is not adequate, it may fail to reach the egg and fertilize it.
Major Causes Of Male Infertility
The causes of male fertility can be classified into two broad categories – medical and environmental. Having a good understanding of these causes would help you seek better help from a male infertility specialist.
Medical Causes Of Male Infertility
Varicocele refers to the swelling of the veins in testicles, resulting in draining them. It is one of the most common reversible causes of male infertility and can be treated effectively. While the exact reason behind varicocele is still unknown, it is often associated with abnormal blood flow, leading to reduced quality and quantity of sperms produced.
Male infertility can also be caused due to various infections that affect normal sperm production and/or lead to scarring that blocks the movement of sperms. Some common infections include the inflammation of epididymis or testicles and infections that are transmitted sexually (including HIV and gonorrhoea). While most infections can be dealt with by male infertility specialists, some of them may cause permanent testicular damage.
Ejaculation issues like retrograde ejaculation often cause male infertility. Here, the semen enters into the bladder instead of being ejaculated from the penis during an orgasm. Such issues can be caused due to spinal injuries, bladder surgeries, specific medications, diabetes, etc.
Sperms may also be attacked by certain antibodies that are immune system cells mistakenly considering sperms to be harmful to the body, resulting in infertility issues.
Malignant and non-malignant tumors have the tendency to affect the male reproductive system through the glands releasing hormones related to reproduction. Also, surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy used for curing cancer may cause infertility issues in men.
In some cases, one or both testicles fail to descend from the abdomen to the scrotum during fetal development. Male infertility is common in men with this condition.
Male infertility can also be caused due to an imbalance in the hormones secreted from the thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal glands. Low testosterone is one of the most common causes of male fertility.
Environmental Causes Of Male Infertility
Prolonged exposure to industrial chemicals like pesticides, organic solvents, herbicides, painting materials, etc. can lead to low sperm counts, thereby resulting in male infertility.
Male infertility can also be caused due to exposure to harmful radiation and x-rays as they reduce the sperm count. However, this issue is reversible in most cases and the sperm count is back to normal once the exposure stops.
Extremely high temperatures may affect sperm production by testicles as they get overheated. Although not much conclusive evidence has been obtained on the matter yet, hot tubs and saunas are known to reduce the sperm count temporarily.
Other Relevant Causes For Male Infertility
Apart from the medical and environmental factors, here are some other major causes that may require you to seek help from a male fertility specialist:
Heavy alcohol abuse can lead to a drop in testosterone levels in a man’s body. This may cause issues like erectile dysfunction and reduced sperm production. Moreover, liver diseases caused due to heavy alcohol consumption may lead to infertility issues.
Taking anabolic steroids for stimulating muscle strength can cause testicles to shrink and lead to reduced sperm production. Also, abuse of marijuana and cocaine is known to reduce the quality and quantity of sperms.
Another common cause for male infertility is excessive tobacco smoking. Men who do not smoke are often found to have a higher sperm count as compared to the ones who do. Passive smoking also has little impact on male fertility.
Obesity is a lesser-known cause of male fertility. Being overweight often has a direct impact on the sperms due to hormonal changes caused due to the same.
Symptoms Of Male Infertility
The primary symptom of male infertility is the inability to conceive a child despite frequent unprotected sexual intercourse. While there may not be other clear symptoms in most cases, many men experience underlying issues such as:
