While many serious issues are faced in the medical world daily, one of the hardest emotionally is the issue of infertility. Oftentimes it is thought to be most common in women, though men face infertility as well and it can be incredibly frustrating, and put a lot of stress on the relationship and the couple.
Male infertility is due to low sperm production, abnormal sperm function, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems, lifestyle choices and other factors can play a role in causing male infertility.
The only true symptom of male infertility is the lack of ability to conceive a child, but problems with sexual function and other small signs such as breast growth, lumps in testicles and recurrent respiratory infections or the inability to smell may be indicators.
If you have any pain, discomfort, abnormalities, have erection or ejaculation problems, low sex drive, or other problems with sexual function, it is important to contact your doctor to discuss a treatment plan.
There are many factors that could cause male infertility, some of them are Varicocele, a swelling of the veins, infection, ejaculation issues, antibodies that attack the sperm, tumors, undescended testicles, hormone imbalances, prior surgeries and oftentimes different environmental causes and overall health.
Losing weight, avoiding drugs and alcohol, environmental threats, and receiving treatment for other more serious symptoms and issues can help improve fertility. To best improve male infertility, it is best to talk to your physician.
