An incompetence of a male partner to conceive by a woman is known as male infertility. Secondly, if a woman is unable to get pregnant after doing a one year or more years of regular unprotected sexual intercourse then it means that the male partner has an infertility problem. However, female infertility may also be the reason for not having children.

What is Male Infertility?

It is generally said that to have a baby is a simple and natural experience but for some couples it may be difficult to conceive. Fertility of a male depends on the quality and quantity of sperm. On the other side, if the quantity of sperm ejaculated by man is low or the quality of sperm are poor then it will be difficult else impossible in some cases to get pregnant. Male sterility is a health issue of a man that lessens the chances of his female partner in getting pregnant. It is a universal issue and according to a research study, about 20% of infertile couples, this problem is only connected to the male partners and about 30% of couples, the problem of sterility are with both the partners. That’s why, the contribution to infertility issue by a man in around half of all cases. On an average, one in twenty men, having less quantity of sperm and causing infertility.

Symptoms of Male Infertility

There are numerous symptoms that are already have a presence in the body, but men are unable to recognize that it may result in infertility. Some of them are mentioned below.

  • Hormonal imbalance.
  • Difficulty in ejaculation.
  • Lower than normal sperm count.
  • Decreased sex drive or loss of libido.
  • Reduction in erectile dysfunction.
  • Fluid secretion.
  • Problem of inflammation, pain and lumps in and around the testicles.
  • Abnormality results in breast growth which is a sign of infertility issues.
  • Inability to smell and frequent infections in the respiratory tract may also be a sign of male infertility.

In my opinion, if you are facing any of these issues or any symptoms then it is essential to seek medical assistance. Fertility doctors may give you suggestions and accordingly you may choose the best possible treatment for yourself to improve the chances of conception.

Treatment: According to a study, one in eight infertile men has a treatable condition and after treatment those couples may become pregnant naturally. But in some cases, specialized doctor may recommend you and your partner to seek assisted reproductive treatment (which is used to achieve pregnancy), such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). These techniques do not cure or treat the cause of infertility but they may help your partner to get pregnant even if the sperm count is very low.
