Male Fertility in Gurgaon
Facing premature ejaculation? Stressed? In today’s stressed out life, one of the most common issues faced by men is Male Fertility. As per a recent study, infertility is a worldwide problem and it affects 15% of married couples worldwide. While infertility affects 15-20% of general population, among males around 30% are impacted worldwide. In India, the prevalence of male infertility is around 23%. This means that nearly 1 in 7 couples is infertile, which means they haven't been able to conceive a child even though they've had frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse for a year or longer. In up to half of these couples, male infertility plays at least a partial role. We at Neelkanth hospital recognize this and have ensured that we have the best infertility specialists in Gurgaon whom you can consult for all your problems.
Impact of Male fertility on your life
Male fertility is a complex process. Once you and your partner decide to have children, both of you are equally responsible to reach the destination and become parents. To get your partner pregnant, the following must occur:
- You must produce healthy sperm. Initially, this involves the growth and formation of the male reproductive organs during puberty. At least one of your testicles must be functioning correctly, and your body must produce testosterone and other hormones to trigger and maintain sperm production.
- Sperm have to be carried into the semen. Once sperm are produced in the testicles, delicate tubes transport them until they mix with semen and are ejaculated out of the penis.
- There needs to be enough sperm in the semen. If the number of sperm in your semen (sperm count) is low, it decreases the odds that one of your sperm will fertilize your partner's egg. A low sperm count is fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen or fewer than 39 million per ejaculate.
- Sperm must be functional and able to move. If the movement (motility) or function of your sperm is abnormal, the sperm may not be able to reach or penetrate your partner's egg.
There are many reasons for male infertility and prominent among them are:
- Low Sperm Production
- Abnormal Sperm Function
- Illness or injury
- Premature ejaculation
- Chronic health issues
- Bad lifestyle
Symptoms of Male infertility
The most prominent symptom is the inability to conceive a child. However, there are also various underlying issues that may hamper a man’s fertility. Inherited disorder, hormonal imbalance, dilated veins around the testicle or a condition that blocks the passage of sperm can also be signs and symptoms. These may need medical checks to determine the impact of these on fertility.
However there are signs and symptoms you may notice on a day to day basis and these include:
- Premature ejaculation
- Small volumes of fluid ejaculated
- Erectile dysfunction
- Pain in the testicles
- Swelling in the penis or testicles
- Respiratory issues
- Abnormal breast growth
- Signs of hormonal issues like decreased body hair
If the above symptoms are persistent and you have been unable to conceive even after a year of unprotected sex, it is time to see your doctor who on examination may decide to refer you to a fertility specialist. We at Neelkanth have the best fertility specialists in Gurgaon who can help you tackle this problem.
A few medical causes that can cause infertility in men include:
- Varicocele: This is a swelling of the veins that drain the testicle. It's the most common reversible cause of male infertility. Varicoceles lead to reduced sperm quantity and quality.
- Infections: Some infections can interfere with sperm production or sperm health or can cause scarring that blocks the passage of sperm. These include inflammation of the epididymis (epididymitis) or testicles (orchitis) and some sexually transmitted infections, including gonorrhea or HIV. Although some infections can result in permanent testicular damage, most often sperm can still be retrieved.
- Ejaculation issues.
- Antibodies that attack sperm: Anti-sperm antibodies are immune system cells that mistakenly identify sperm as harmful invaders and attempt to eliminate them.
- Tumors: Cancerous tumors and nonmalignant tumors can affect the male reproductive organs directly, through the glands that release hormones related to reproduction, such as the pituitary gland, or through unknown causes. In some cases, surgery, radiation or chemotherapy to treat tumors can affect male fertility.
- Undescended testicles: In some males, during fetal development one or both testicles fail to descend from the abdomen into the sac that normally contains the testicles (scrotum). Decreased fertility is more likely in men who have had this condition.
- Defects of tubules that transport sperm: Tubes that carry sperm can be blocked due to various causes, including inadvertent injury from surgery, prior infections, trauma or abnormal development, such as with cystic fibrosis or similar inherited conditions.
- Chromosome defects: These are mostly inherited disorders such as Klinefelter's syndrome — in which a male is born with two X chromosomes and one Y chromosome (instead of one X and one Y) — cause abnormal development of the male reproductive organs.
- Problems with sexual intercourse: Issues like erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation, painful ejaculation or even psychological problems that interfere with sex.
- Celiac disease: Celiac disease is a digestive disorder caused by sensitivity to a protein found in wheat called gluten. The condition may contribute to male infertility. Fertility may improve after adopting a gluten-free diet.
- Certain medications
- Prior surgeries
Apart from all the medical issues, there are also non medical reasons like lifestyle and environment that may be reasons for male infertility. These include:
- Overexposure to certain environmental elements such as heat, toxins and chemicals can reduce sperm production or sperm function.
- Over exposure to temperature at scrotum due to working on laptop for long stretches of time.
- Drug use
- Alcohol usage
