Why Many Men Today Have Low Sperm Count; free solutions

This is a free information from Prof. Oladapo Ashiru to help men:

Infertility used to be defined as the inability of a couple to achieve pregnancy after unprotected s*x for a whole year. But the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and other experts at a recent World Health Organisation meeting have revised this definition.

The new guidelines, to be published next year, encourage women and men over 35 years of age to seek fertility evaluation if they fail to conceive after six months of trying.

An estimated 15 percent of couples meet this criterion and are considered infertile. About 35 percent of cases of infertility are due to female factors; 30% due to male factors, 20% is a combination of female and male factors, and 15 per cent are due to unexplained factors.

In general, scientists and fertility doctors are noticing a drop in spe-rm count and motility, which makes it harder for couples to achieve pregnancies. Conditions leading to infertility in men are still generally underdiagnosed and undertreated.

A man’s fertility rate generally relies on the quantity and quality of his spe-rm. If the amount of spe-rm a man ejacu-lates is low or if the spe-rm is of poor quality, it will be difficult and sometimes impossible for him to impregnate a female.

Male infertility is often caused by problems that affect either spe-rm production or spe-rm transport.

The initial step in the evaluation of an infertile male is to obtain a thorough medical and urologic history. Important considerations include the duration of infertility, previous fertility in the patient and the partner, and prior evaluations. The couple should be asked specifically about their s*xual habits, including their level of knowledge of the optimal timing of inter-course and the use of potentially spermatocytes and lubricants.

Patients should be asked about a history of childhood illnesses such as testicular torsion, post-pubertal mumps, developmental delay, and precocious puberty, as well as urinary tract infections, s*xually transmitted diseases, and bladder neck surgery. A history of neurological diseases, diabetes, and pulmonary infections should be elicited. Anosmia (lack of smell), galactorrhea, visual-field defects, and sudden loss of libido could be signs of a pituitary tumour. The status of the partner’s workup should also be known.

The spe-rm
The production of spe-rm is a complex process and requires normal functioning of the testi-cles (testes) as well as the hypothalamus and pituitary glands — organs in your brain that produce hormones that trigger spe-rm production.

Once spe-rm is produced in the testicles, delicate tubes transport them until they mix with se-men and are ejacu-lated out of the p*nis. Problems with any of these systems can affect spe-rm production.

Low sperm count (oligospermia) is a leading cause of infertility or sub-fertility issues among men. While it requires only one spe-rm to fertilise the ovum, the odds of conception are such that it takes millions of spe-rm per milliliter of se-men to actually achieve the goal of fertilisation.

A “normal” spe-rm count is about 20 million or more spe-rm per milliliter of se-men. Over 60% of the spe-rm in each sample should exhibit normal morphology and indicate typical motility – the forward swimming movement.

Oligospermia – or low spe-rm count – is indicated in simple tests that reveal the concentration of spe-rm in a given sample quantity. Spe-rm count can, of course, be impacted by diet, frequency of inter-course, habits like smoking and drinking, and general health and wellness issues.

LifestyleMen who smoke might have a lower spe-rm count than those who don’t smoke. Generally, men are advised to live responsibly and not do anything in excess.
