Dear men, in this article, we will talk about male infertility and its diagnosis.
When couple has no children, the first, usually a woman starts to sound the alarm. She runs to the doctors, is examined but no use. Then the wife’s claims to her husband and the obsessive desire to tear her beloved off the couch to be dragged to some reproductive clinic, where they certainly will not be left alone. Do not be offended, dear men, on your wives. They do not want to complicate your life by going to the Reproductive Center they want children, and their claims to your sexual health are often quite justified. Statistics is inexorable and it says that from 40 to 50% of cases of infertile marriage are based on male infertility.
Causes of Male Infertility
The causes of male infertility are diverse. From the banal abuse of cigarettes to complex genetic abnormalities. . This can include infectious diseases and testicular diseases, alcoholism, drug addiction, side effects from taking medications, etc. In addition, we do not write off congenital anatomical abnormalities and injuries. Sports such as football, wrestling, cycling can have a harmful effect on spermatogenesis and lead directly to infertility, as frequent strokes and squeezing significantly disrupt the testes.
The constant wearing of tight-fitting swimming trunks also does not have the best effect on the development of male germ cells. Maybe, of course, family shorts are not as elegant as boxers and erotic as thongs, but their cut takes into account much more the characteristics of male physiology. By the way, the extra eggs in the sauna with beer and friends are also not very welcome. So keep this in mind if there is a serious intention to acquire offspring.
Diagnosis of male infertility
The main analysis with which you can get an idea about the quality and quantity of sperm contained in the ejaculate is a spermogram. In the case of insufficient information, prescribe:
- ultrasound ultrasound and dopplerography of the vessels of the pelvis;
- blood test for sex hormones;
- infection analysis;
- immunological analysis;
- Analysis of urine;
- analysis of prostate secretion.
Another important factor in the diagnosis of male infertility is the study of the history of past and existing diseases and injuries. Perhaps the man could be exposed to radiation or electromagnetic radiation, harmful chemicals, etc.
To imagine a more or less clear picture of male infertility, its root causes are divided into three large groups:
А) quantitative and qualitative violations of sperm composition;
B) pathology of the ejaculatory tract;
C) combined infertility.
And in order to properly deal with the«root of evil», determine the «enemy» and prescribe effective treatment, at least your desire is needed, and the rest - for the specialists of our Center for Reproductive Medicine Bogoliuby.
