What are the causes of Male Infertility?
Q. What is a healthy sperm count, and how does it affect male fertility?
According to WHO, the average sperm count falls between 15 million to over 200 million sperm per milliliter of semen. Suppose your sperm count is less than 15 million sperm per milliliter or less than 39 million sperm per ejaculate. In that case, it is classified as a low sperm count. A low sperm count can lead to male Infertility, making it difficult for couples to conceive naturally.
Q) Is it possible that the husband can be the reason for the wife's inability to conceive?
Almost 40% of all cases of a couple's infertility are related to the male factor. Low sperm count, poor sperm motility, abnormal sperm morphology, STDs, and other reproductive health issues are the leading causes of male infertility. However, we advise both partners to undergo fertility assessment to determine the cause of a couple's infertility, helping an IVF specialist prepare an accurate and effective treatment plan.
