All you Need To Know About Male Infertility ( Causes, Treatment, Prevention )

Hormonal disorders

1 Hyperprolactinemia (elevated prolactin reduces sperm production)

2 Hypothyroidism (low thyroid levels result in poor semen quality)

3 Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (suppressed pituitary that causes lower sperm cell motility)

4 Hypogonadotropic hypopituitarism (low pituitary gland arrests sperm development)

5 Panhypopituitarism (the failure of pituitary gland decreases libido)

Physical, psychological and behavioral problems

1 Varicocele (enlargement of spermatic veins causing abnormal sperm)

2 Damaged sperm ducts

3 Torsion (supportive tissue abnormality affecting the testes)

4 Infection and disease (such as mumps, tuberculosis, typhoid, smallpox, influenza) can cause low sperm count and low sperm motility

5 Klinefelter’s syndrome (a genetic disorder that decreases the testosterone levels)

6 Retrograde ejaculation (semen ejaculates into the bladder causing low sperm count)

7 Erectile dysfunction (inability to have an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse)

8 Premature ejaculation (inability to control ejaculation shortly after sexual penetration)

9 Ejaculatory incompetence (inability to ejaculate during intercourse)
