Approximately 40 per cent of all the world’s fertility problems originate from men. And these male fertility problems do not only include poor quality sperm but along the list as well are blockages in the tubes of the reproductive system. That is why it is important for a man to pay close attention to his health for he has a very high percentage in contributing to the problem of conceptualizing a child. Infertility is defined as a disease of the reproductive system that impairs one of the body's most fundamental functions which is the conception of children. Conception in itself is a complicated process which depends upon many factors. However it can be demonstrated in a lot of different ways, which includes the following for males: the production of healthy sperm by the man, the unblocked travel of the sperm to reach the egg, the ability of the sperm to reach the egg, the sperm's ability to fertilize the egg when they meet and the likes. Approximately one-third of infertility cases in the world of pregnancy can be attributed to male factors, so you’d better pay close attention. The most common causes of male infertility includes Azoospermia which is the case of where no sperm cells are produced. This means that the semen doesn’t contain any sperm most probably because of a blockage of the tubes, or testicular failure. Another thing is the Oligospermia, which is the case where a few sperm cells are only produced. This means that the ejaculate has a deficient number of sperm to complete about conception. And then, there’s the Abnormal Shape, which means that a healthy sperm is shaped like a streamlined tadpole. This abnormally shaped sperm then would likely have problems penetrating the surface of the woman’s egg. Lastly, there’s also poor motility of the sperm, which translates that a sperm swim feebly or is incapable of moving spontaneously, or not at all. This case therefore would disable the sperm and he wouldn’t be able to swim through the woman’s reproductive system. Occasionally too, sperm cells are born abnormal or they die even before they can reach the egg during conception. In these rare cases, genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis or a chromosomal abnormality causes the infertility. However, infertility is not only something physical condition but can be very well an emotional and social condition as well along with accompanying feelings and issues. The infertile man therefore needs support and consideration from a treatment team along with friends, and family. To improve your sperm health, there are a lot of things that you can do. Poor results in sperm tests can indicate low sperm count, poor sperm motility, or agglutination but may not necessarily mean that there is a permanent problem. For a start, sperm can be affected by a lot of things so making improvements in a lot of areas in your lifestyle may have a positive impact with your fertility. For starters, you should avoid the wearing of tight clothes. This includes underpants so give boxers a try. You should also not take too many hot baths or have long time spent in hot tubs. You should also avoid smoking, alcohol consumption and recent infections or illnesses including colds and flu. Most importantly, steer clear form stress and work hazards like exposure to pesticides, heavy metals, solvents and x-rays for these body stressors such as heavy metal or radiation exposure can damage your poor sperm swimmers terribly. To combat these hazards, you can go green. Lower your stress levels with the help of herbs and vegetables. You also need to regularly exercise and go for physical activities that are not as tasking as it seemingly is because you genuinely enjoy them.
The fertilization of an egg from a woman by the sperm from a man is the start of a new life. There are approximately 20 million sperm per milliliter (ml) which are needed to be present in the ejaculate, along with adequate mobility as well as strength to swim the arduous journey to the fallopian tube. This is where conception normally takes place where the odds of a young fertile couple conceiving through sexual intercourse during the time of ovulation are roughly one in five every month. The art and science of the story of the sperm cell in its sole purpose to infiltrate the egg is simply amazing. By this very reason, you should stand proud of what you have dangling down there, those two eggs that you have, who are the source of all the sperms in your life. However, there is a great threat to your testicles and it comes in the name of Testicular Cancer. This is a form of cancer that specifically affects your testicles. Do not be too alarmed of it though for it is highly treatable and usually, very curable, that is, as long as it is treated early. Men usually between the ages of 15 and 40 are the most likely group to get this kind of cancer. If you personally think that something may be wrong with them, say you feel a lump around the area, and then go see your doctor immediately. To save yourself the trouble of even more damage, remember to do a monthly testicular self-examination (TSE). To do the Testicular Self-Exam, first you must check for a noticeable change in the size as well as weight of your testicles. However, it is but normal for your one testicle to be larger and to hang lower than your other testicle. In examining them, you must feel the soft tube at the back as well as top of each of your testicle. This is what you call the epididymis, the part which stores your sperm. At the time of your touching, it may feel tender. Next, you must feel the firm, smooth tube of the vas deferens or also called as the spermatic cord, this runs up from the epididymis. Then using the fingers and thumbs of both your hands, you can roll each of your testicles back and forth to gently feel the surface of each testicle. Your testicles should then be smooth with no lumps or swellings. A sure way that you are doing it right is to compare both your testicles since Cancer rarely affects both of them at the same time. If you're not sure if one testicle feels normal thengo right ahead and compare it with the other. However, if you do notice a change, don’t get alarmed. Just see your doctor ASAP if you notice a lump, swelling, or hardening that occurs usually on the front or side of the testicle. You should also see the doctor when you feel a dull ache or pain. Don't wait to see if the symptoms will just go away because it really won’t. After that your doctor will just tell you if need any more tests.
