Male infertility is usually caused by problems that affect sperm production, sperm motility, sperm quantity or sperm quality. If the number of sperm a man ejaculates is low or if the sperm are of poor quality, it will be difficult, and sometimes impossible, for him to cause a pregnancy.
Before the woman seeks any type of fertility treatments, it is very advisable for the man (husband) to undergo SEMEN ANALYSIS.
Semen Analysis will help you to determine whether you have
Low sperm count - (Oligospermia)
No sperm - (Azoospermia)
Sperm that are not formed correctly -(Teratozoospermia)
Sperm that don’t move quickly enough; hence they die before they reach the egg -(Asthenozoospermia)
Seminal fluid that is too thick, hence sperm can’t move around in it very easily -(Asthenozoospermia)
Dead sperms - (Necrozoospermia)
High level of White Blood Cells (WBC) –(Leucospermia)
Another cause of male infertility is a problem with ejaculation. In some cases, tubes inside the male reproductive organs are blocked. If so, you may have a hard time ejaculating, or nothing comes out when you have an orgasm. Sometimes, the ejaculation goes backward from the prostate into the bladder instead of out of the body.
Some factors that may increase a man’s risk of infertility are:
Excessive drug or alcohol use
Injury to the scrotum and testes
Having overheated testicles from wearing clothing that are too tight or swimming or bathing in hot water regularly
Having an undescended testicle
Having cystic fibrosis
Injury or trauma to the scrotum and testes
Problems getting an erection
