The most common causes for male infertility are sperm related problems such a sperm count and the sperm quality. The sperm related problems in male can be
Low sperm count
Sperm that do not move quickly and die before they reach the egg.
Improper formation of egg
Thick seminal fluid preventing the sperm to move easily.
No formation of sperm
The sperm related problems may arise because of less or more hormonal secretion that support in sperm making. Another major cause for male infertility is ejaculation. In some men the tubes inside the reproductive organs get blocked making the ejaculation harder and nothing comes out during the orgasm. Sometime the ejaculation goes into the bladder from the prostate instead of coming out.
In some men there is no specific reason for infertility which is called as unexplained infertility. This diagnosis may be a frustrating one but further diagnosis can provide you treatment options.
