Sperm count refers to the number of sperm in a semen sample. Men are considered to have a low sperm count — something that’s medically known as oligospermia — when they have fewer than 15 million sperm per millimeter of semen. That sounds like a lot, but the average sperm count is between 20 and 40 million. [...]
Oligospermia, a low sperm count, means that a man’s ejaculate contains fewer sperm than normal — less than 20 million per milliliter, and perhaps much less. A slightly lower sperm count makes it harder for a man to get his partner pregnant, while an extremely low sperm count makes conceiving almost impossible.
Men with a low sperm count have less than 20 million sperm oer millimeter of semen. If that number sounds like a lot to you, a normal sperm count is actually between 40 and 300 million. A low sperm count can certainly make it hard for a man to get his partner pregnant naturally, but it is [...]
ICSI, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, is a relatively recent development in the fertility world. It is used in combination with IVF, and was first introduced in 1992. With ICSI, one sperm is directly injected into one egg in a lab setting, in order to fertilize it. This has offered a solution to couples for whom male [...]
Oligospermia is the medical term for a low sperm count, which means that a man does have sperm in his ejaculate, but in lower numbers than normal. Men who have fewer than 20 million sperm per milileter of seminal fluid have oligospermia. Does a low sperm count make it impossible for men to naturally get [...]
Oligospermia means that a man has a low sperm count. As that description already suggests, this refers to a situation in which the man’s ejaculate contains fewer sperm than normal. Fewer sperm in seminal fluid predictably results in a decrease in the odds that such a man will be able to get his partner pregnant. [...]
Humans are constantly exposed to a range of chemicals and toxins in their environment which can affect their health, including their reproductive health: this is the case for women, and this is the case with men.
Intrauterine insemination is another name for what used to be called artificial insemination. Another term for intrauterine insemination is IUI and the procedure first came into use during the 1940’s because of male factor infertility issues related to sperm. While the procedure can be effective for some couples, generally a doctor will not always do [...]
Studies prove that male infertility is on the rise… mostly because of the low sperm count. Reasons for that could lie in genes, infection, sedentary lifestyle and lifestyle changes, perhaps in smoking, drug abuse, mental stress, work pressure, alcohol, hypertension, obesity, BPA in cans, environment pollution, pesticides… what else?
Researchers say they finally understand the reasons behind the falling levels of ‘viable’ sperm counts in men. Surprisingly they say that man’s fertility may be largely laid down in the few months before and after boy’s birth. If human reproduction is compared to the reproductive system of other mammals, we are on the edge of [...]
