Male infertility treatment in India is carried out on professional parameters. Infertility treatment in India entails such male health issues and is much sought after.
Infertility is defined as the failure to achieve pregnancy after regular unprotected sex (without making use of any contraception) for at least a year.
Male infertility treatments
The various infertility treatments for men in India do include rectal probe electroejaculation, anti-estrogen medication as well as gonadotropin therapy. Male infertility treatment in India does take note of such health issues.
There are a few homeopathic treatments for infertility in males that one can explore as well. It is indeed a good idea to consult carefully with a fertility specialist at a proper time and then decide on a course of treatment after careful consideration.
More than 90% of male infertility cases are on account of low sperm counts, poor sperm quality, or perhaps even both. The remaining cases of male infertility can indeed be due to several factors including anatomical problems, hormonal imbalances, as well as genetic defects.
Why do Men Suffer Fertility Problems?
There are several causes of fertility problems in men.
They do include:
- Obstructive problems (blockages in sperm-carrying tubes)
- Testicular injury cum disease
- Genetic disorders
- Sperm disorders
- Problem with erection cum ejaculation
- Hormonal problems
- General medical disorders that do reduce fertility
- Drugs that reduce fertility
- Environmental toxins and radiation
A blockage in sperm-carrying tubes does have several potential causes. The most common are:
- Groin surgery (including hernia repair cum fixation of undescended testicles).
- Trauma to the scrotum sack covering the testicles (even fairly minor sporting injuries).
- Infection (particularly Chlamydia, gonorrhea as well as tuberculosis).
- Previous vasectomy (a form of contraception that does involve tying the sperm-carrying tubes).
Few men have congenital (present at birth) absence of the vas deferens on one or both sides. The vas deferens happens to be the tube that does conduct the testicular component of semen to the urethra, which then carries semen via the penis to the outside world.
Nearly 10 percent of men with an obstructive cause for their infertility tend to have this problem. The seminal vesicles (where other semen components are made) are often absent too.
Another rare obstructive cause is Berry-Perkins-Young syndrome, in which the affected person has a chronic chest disease (bronchiectasis), chronic sinusitis as well as obstructive infertility.
Testicular Injury and Disease
A blow to the testicles can rather occur in sport or during a fight, causing swelling of the testicles, or bleeding in or around them. This may lead to the blood supply to the testicles failing, resulting in permanent damage to the sperm production mechanism. Viral infections can lead to inflammation of the testicles and lead to failure of sperm production.
Mumps is also another good known cause but is not the only one. Mumps does affect fertility if it causes orchitis and that is too rarely.
Undescended testicles (cryptorchidism) are another common cause of failure of sperm production.
A varicocele happens to be a dilation of the testicular veins in the spermatic cord that leads from the testicles to the abdomen. Varicoceles do occur in 15-20 percent of fertile men and 30 to 40 percent of men suffering from fertility problems.
Disorders of sperm number, movement, and shape are common in men with infertility. Prolonged abstinence from ejaculation can affect sperm motility.
Problems with chromosomes (packages of genetic material) do occur in about 2 to 20 percent of infertile men and can also affect their fertility.
Testosterone deficiency can rather reduce fertility and may be caused by problems with testicular testosterone production, or problems with the pituitary gland or hypothalamus in the brain, which can control testosterone production.
Infertility treatment in India can resolve such male infertility health issues.
