Male infertility refers to the inability of a male to achieve a pregnancy in a fertile female. In humans it accounts for 40-50% of infertility. Problems with the production and maturation of sperm are the most common causes of male infertility. Sperm may be immature, abnormally shaped, or unable to move properly. Or, normal sperm may be produced in abnormally low numbers (oligospermia) or seemingly not at all (azoospermia). This problem may be caused by many different conditions, including the following:
- Infectious diseases or inflammatory conditions such as the mumps virus
- Endocrine or hormonal disorders such as Kallmann syndrome (an absence of or decrease in the function of the male testes) or a pituitary problem
- Immunological disorders in which some men produce antibodies to their own sperm
- Environmental and lifestyle factors
- Genetic diseases, most of which are either directly or indirectly associated with sperm abnormalities
Treating infertility is not only important but crucial as well. It is important to treat and help the couples find their bundle of happiness. Just as female infertility there are ways to deal with male infertility as well. Treatments vary according to the underlying disease and the degree of the impairment of the male fertility. Obstructive causes of post-testicular infertility can be overcome with either surgery or IVF-ICSI. Ejaculatory factors may be treatable by homoeopathic medications.
We at Dr. Bidani’s Centre for Homoeopathy understand the importance of having a baby. Here is a list of treatments that we offer in order to help you overcome your issue.
Azoospermia , as the name suggests , refers to the condition in which there are no sperm in the semen. This diagnosis can come as a rude shock, because most men with a zero count have normal libido; normal sexual function; and their semen looks completely normal too. The diagnosis can only be made by examining the semen under a microscope in the laboratory.
A low sperm count (the scientific term for which is oligospermia) is the commonest cause of infertility in the man. Achieving a pregnancy naturally may be a challenge if the male suffers from a low sperm count. However, chances are good if the female partner is fertile; many couples with this problem have been successful with the help of homoeopathy.
Impotence, or erectile dysfunction, may result from the total inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability to achieve an erection, or the ability to only sustain a brief erection. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), up to 30 million men are affected by ED, depending on the definition used.
