My Sperm Count Is 12 Million, And There Is Swelling In The Prostate Gland, Can It Return To Normal?
In the morning, I did a sperm fertility check yesterday, well, there was a look of my sperm count of 12 million, which moved quickly by only 10% (I am 26 years old)
Hello, Andre Gara, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In semen analysis tests on men, what is examined is volume, composition, level of fructose, dilution time, to sperm. In looking at sperm health, what is assessed is the concentration / sperm count, sperm motility, and sperm shape. If one of these things is not within normal limits, the cause should be sought.
The normal value for sperm concentration is above 15 million / milliliter of semen, and the normal value for active sperm is 50%. Values lower than the normal value can be caused by several possible causes, for example inflammation / infection / swelling in the testes or in the male reproductive organs, varicoceles (dilation of the veins in the testicles), bumps in the testicles, ejaculatory disorders, disorders of the immune system (for example there are antibodies that attack sperm), hormonal imbalances, certain drugs, or a history of injury / surgery on the reproductive organs. In addition, the environment and exposure to certain substances can also affect, for example: high radiation exposure, increased temperature in the testes (eg saunas, frequent tight pants, etc.), certain chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, benzene, toluene, etc.). Lifestyle can also increase the risk of abnormalities in sperm, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, stress, obesity / overweight, or the use of anabolic steroid drugs.
To help improve the quality and quantity of sperm, the causes of low sperm count and movement must be addressed. In addition, improving your lifestyle by diligently exercising, eating foods that increase sperm count (eg fruits, green vegetables, beans, chicken, etc.), maintaining ideal body weight, avoiding smoking and alcohol, and preventing stress can also support improvement in the quality and quantity of sperm. Avoid exposure to the substances I mentioned above and keep the genital temperature not too hot. Take the medicine given by your doctor according to the instructions.
Repairing sperm counts and movements takes time depending on the cause, severity, and effort made to correct it. Live the therapy in accordance with the doctor's direction, as well as timely control according to the doctor's recommendations for further development.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
