Infertility is a very distressing life crisis in any man that erodes perceived social stature and self-worth. For men, fathering a child has always been a matter of pride and not being able to do somehow diminishing masculinity. Despite this, infertility issues and gynecological care have always focused on women. Thus, the question “What are the male infertility causes?”
The male infertility causes are varied. It can be affected by lifestyles or attributed to any or a combination of causes such as environmental factors, hormonal imbalances, physical or structural abnormalities, and psychosocial and behavioral problems. Oftentimes, taking the right kind of penis enlargement pills, also known as male enhancement pills, can do wonders to combat male infertility.
Many such pills enhance a man’s stamina while doing the deed. Moreover, these pills are known to prevent premature ejaculation, which is usually a cause of frustration among men. There is supposed to be a “right” time for ejaculation and men must be in a position to anticipate when they would ejaculate successfully. Unfortunately, there are various reasons why a man might ejaculate mere seconds into the deed. Obviously, premature ejaculation cuts short the anticipation and satisfaction that usually lead to the climax. As a result, both man and woman end up dissatisfied and perturbed.
Delaying the ejaculation, rather than doing it prematurely against a man’s wishes, enables one to produce “good” sperm; thus, the chances of conceiving successfully become higher.
Male infertility causes may be temporary if triggered by lifestyle or psychosocial and behavioral factors. Being temporary means they may be corrected to restore reproductive health. Some of these are:
- Abusive use of alcohol and drugs
- Unhealthy diet leading to obesity and/or lack of nutrients
- Steam baths that increase testicular temperature
Exposure to toxic chemicals, radiation and infective microorganisms may manifest direct effects on the testicular processes and functions or alter the hormone system to reduce sperm production. Some known environmental agents are free radicals or oxidants, bisphenol, heavy metals, radiation, hydrocarbons and organochlorines found in plastics and certain pesticides
Hormonal problems associated genetic abnormalities are harder to treat. Some hormone related diseases are: hyperprolactinemia or elevated prolactin, hypogonadotropichypopituitarisms, hypothyroidism or low thyroid hormone, panhypopituitafism or complete pituitary gland failure, and congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
Male infertility causes like physical abnormalities may interfere with production of viable sperm or lead to blocking of sperm pathway. Some of these are: variocoele is an enlargement of a spermatic vein leading to reduced sperm count and altered sperm form; damaged spermatic ducts which may be genetic or due to the presence of scars from surgery or infections; torsion or twisting of testes cutting off blood supply causing testicular damage; infection and diseases like mumps, gonorrhea, syphilis, typhoid, etc. causing testicular atrophy, low sperm count and motility; Klinefelter’s syndrome a genetic disorder in which cells have an extra X chromosome leading to underdeveloped testes; and retrograde ejaculation where the sphincter does not constrict during ejaculation.
Other noteworthy sexual problems affecting male fertility are: erectile dysfunction or impotence, ejaculatory incompetence and premature ejaculation.
