As we mentioned in previous articles, infertility is defined as inability of a couple to conceive after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse. It effects over 5 millions couple alone in the U. S. and many times more in the world. Because of unawareness of treatments, only 10% seeks help from professional specialist. In this article, we will discuss spermic causes of infertility.
Teratospermia or teratozoospermia is a condition in which the sperm is mature abnormally such as th round headed spermatozoa affecting fertility in males by reducing sperm mobility and preventing sperm from penetrating into the egg.
2. Sperm agglutination
Sperm agglutination is a condition in which sperm clumping together due to infection or antibody reactions, thereby reducing the sperm's ability to fertilize egg and increasing the risk of infection.
3. Immature sperm
Sperm is manufactured in the testicles which are located in the scrotum. Immature sperm cells start to develop and grow in the seminiferous tubules then pass into the epididymis, where the sperm are stored and continue to grow and gain the ability to swim.
Necrozoospermia is defined as the condition of totally absent sperm movement. The cause of necrozoospermia is still unknown. Some suggest it may be caused by a birth defect or obstructive pathology including hydrocoele, and varicocoele.
Oligospermia is defined as a condition of having a low number of sperm during ejaculation of the male. It is caused by abnormal enlargement of the vein, sperm duct infection, or abnormal functioning of the pituitary gland in hormone secretion for production of sperm.
6. Klinefelter's syndrome
This is a genetic defect of the male with one Y chromosome and 2 X chromosomes leading to hormone imbalance, including lack of testosterone. Male breast, small testes and the interference with normal sperm production (semen found to have no sperm) causing infertility.
7. Germ cell phasia
As we known, the men's testicle contains germ cells for sperm production. Germ cell phasia is a genetic disease in men in which testicles have no germ cells thus are unable to produce sperm.
8. Epididymal obstruction
Epididymis is a tiny tube which attaches to the testicle. Epididymals obstruction is defined as the blockage of the passage of sperm to the penis leading to low sperm count and increases the risk of infertility.
