Male Infertility Evaluation and Management in Vijayawada

Statistics reveal that 1 in 7 couples are infertile. This can be inferred if the couples haven’t been able to conceive even after a year of frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse. In up to half of these cases, male infertility plays at least a partial role.

There could be several causes leading to male infertility. Few of them include low sperm production, blockages that restrict delivery of sperm, abnormal sperm functioning or several other male infertility issues. Lifestyle habits such as illness, injuries, past health conditions also may contribute to male infertility.

Fortunately, there are several advanced treatments available for male infertility that could restore your infertility conditions.

Symptoms of Male infertility that need immediate medical attention:

The most obvious symptoms of male infertility is the inability to conceive a child. However, there can be other notable symptoms other than inherited disorder, hormonal imbalance that are noticeable and may give away signs of male infertility. These include:

  • Dilated veins around the testicle that blocks passage of sperms.
  • Issues with sexual functions.
  • Any kind of pain, swelling or lump around the testicle
  • Hormonal abnormality such as abnormal breast growth, decreased body hair
  • Lower sperm count than the ideal value etc

Considering the fact that you haven’t conceived for over a year and persistent visibility of the above symptoms, it’s important that you immediately consult a doctor.

Causes of Male Inferility:

Male infertility is a complex process and it can be caused by medical, environmental or Lifestyle factors. We outline them below:

1. Varicocele: Decreased sperm count, decreased motility of sperm, and an increase in the number of deformed sperm are related to varicoceles. Some experts believe that blocked and enlarged veins around the testes, called varicoceles, cause infertility by raising the temperature in the scrotum and decreasing sperm production.

2. Problems with sexual intercourse: There could be defects in functioning during intercourse such as difficulty in maintaining erection sufficiently (erectile dysfunction), premature ejaculation, painful intercourse, anatomical abnormalities or any psychological problems related to intercourse.

3. Ejaculation issues: Issues like retrograde ejaculation meaning the semen enters the bladder during orgasm instead of the penis. It could be caused due to various health conditions such as diabetes, surgery of the bladder, prostate or urethra etc.

4. Tumours: Cancers can directly attack the male reproductive organs through the glands that release hormones related to reproduction. Furthermore, treatment through surgery or chemotherapy may also affect male infertility.

5. Hormonal imbalances: Abnormalities in hormonal systems including pituitary, hypothalamus, and adrenal glands can cause male infertility. There are also several other underlying conditions that lead to low testosterone that can be fixed by a specialist.

6. Health, lifestyle and other causes: Habits such as alcohol usage, Tobacco or drug usage also may hamper sperm production or the quality of sperms.

The above listed causes are just few important causes of a long list of other causes. Therefore, care should be taken to eliminate as much possible causes in our hand so that it does not create any further complications. The good news is that today there has been several advances in andrology/sexology that could treat male infertility successfully in a painless and non-invasive way.
