Oligospermia / Azoospermia / Asthenospermia

Oligospermia or low sperm count is a common ailment in men where their fertility tends to decrease rapidly. Men suffering from Oligospermia mainly have issues with their low sperm count making them less fertile. Though it does not cause any effect on the erection, this disease can itself be caused by erectile dysfunction. A healthy man has a sperm count of 15 million or above per millilitre. On the other hand, a person with moderate oligospermia will have just five to ten million sperm per millilitre.

There are many causes of this disease and the primary one being a poor lifestyle. Other causes of Oligospermia are mentioned below:

  • Undescended Testicles
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid
  • Alcohol
  • Stress
  • Steroid Use
  • Varicocele
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Low Testosterone
  • Infection
  • Genetic Conditions

Innumerable people are not aware of the fact that they are suffering from this disease as they are never diagnosed. People who willingly test for Oligospermia can be diagnosed as there are very few symptoms. Only those who face difficulty in conceiving get tested and the rest of the men never bother or do not require testing for this disease.

In case any person feels that they are unable to conceive naturally should seek immediate medical attention so that they can be treated. The treatment includes usage of natural medication reducing the probability of side effects. Oligospermia is a curable disease and the right treatment will ultimately result in increasing the number of sperm per millilitre.

Causes of the Oligospermia / Azoospermia / Asthenospermia

Every disease has a cause of origination. There are several causes of Oligospermia which are explained below.

The commonest cause of Oligospermia is Varicocele. This is a condition where a man’s scrotum veins begin to enlarge which results in disrupted blood circulation on testicles. Improper circulation results in an increase in the testicle’s temperature resulting in which reduces sperm production.

Studies have shown a direct relation of obesity with Oligospermia. Being obese can result in poor sperm count as well as hormone production

Hormonal Imbalance
Hormones play a significant role in the production of sperm. Testicles work alongside the brain to release several hormones that result in better sperm production. Hormonal imbalance can reduce the sperm count

Alcohol or Drug Consumption
Excessive drinking leaves a direct impact on sexual health. Drinking too much or the consumption of drugs can reduce the overall sperm count. Additionally, smoking is also proven to decrease sperm count

Secondary Diseases
Sometimes the cause of Oligospermia is an underlying disease in the body. Conditions like diabetes, tumors, cancer, any injury, or past surgery could be a cause of Oligospermia.

Health Risk of Oligospermia / Azoospermia / Asthenospermia
No matter what the disease is, it always leaves a negative impact on the body. Oligospermia not only affects the sperm count but can be a sign of the following diseases

Cancer is among the deadliest diseases on our planet taking thousands of lives every year. Oligospermia can be a sign of testicular cancer in the body. This cancer can spread to other parts of the body and can be fatal as well

Retrograde Ejaculation
Retrograde ejaculation is another condition that can be caused by Oligospermia. In this condition, the sperm enters the bladder rather than leaving the penis.

Heart Diseases
Sometimes lower sperm count is caused by poor blood circulation on the penis. This could be a warning of undetected heart disease or even a sign of an upcoming heart attack.

Prevention of Oligospermia / Azoospermia / Asthenospermia

Taking precautions is better than taking medicines. There are several ways to prevent Oligospermia which are explained below.

Weight Control
Being overweight is a common cause of this condition. Make sure to put a check on your body weight and try to take a balanced diet for weight control.

Give Up Alcohol or Smoking
Blood circulation plays a significant role in sexual health. Alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking tend to disrupt the blood circulation which ends up reducing sperm count. Give up any such habit to avoid Oligospermia.

Keep Your Phone and Laptop Away from Testicles
Smartphones and laptops leave radiation which can reduce sperm count. Avoid using a laptop on your lap for long periods or keeping your mobile in your pocket.

Keep Testicles at Right Temperature
Though testicles have a mechanism to adjust as per the weather conditions, still it is essential to take all the precautions and maintain the right temperature around the testicles. Try to wear loose clothes as they can keep the right blood flow ensuring high sperm count.
