Male fertility in terms of sperm health both in terms of quality and quantity. Male sperm is produced by the testes in the scrotum sac. The following classification of healthy sperm based on the world health agency (WHO):
The amount of liquid semen released. Semen is a liquid from glandular secretions in the reproductive organs and contains millions of sperm cells. Normally men can produce 1.5 to 7.6 ml of semen when ejaculation occurs
Normal sperm cell counts are between 15 million and 259 million sperm per millimeter of semen released
Sperm have a head and tail to move. The ability to move sperm also supports male fertility. From all cells, it is expected that there are 40-81% of sperm that can move (both progressive and non-progressive) and from this value there is at least 32 -75% of sperm that are able to move progressively / move forward
In addition, there are at least 4-48% complete sperm forms (consisting of head and tail)
Some abnormalities that can occur in sperm and affect male fertility include:
Oligosperms: sperm counts are lower than normal values
Azoosperms: absence of sperm cells in semen
Teratozoospermia: abnormal sperm deformity in the head or tail
Asthenozoospermia: abnormalities in the motion of the spema
Some risk factors that can affect sperm cells / male fertility are the lifestyle that most often affects, including unhealthy eating patterns, frequent smoking and alcohol consumption, certain medical conditions such as varicoceles, infections in the reproductive organs, metabolic diseases such as diabetes , obesity, consumption of certain drugs and various causes that are generally not known with certainty.
Men who experience astenozospermia, do not rule out the possibility of pregnancy can still occur in their partners. But indeed found many couples who have difficulty having offspring naturally due to sperm disorders.
Nowadays the development of medicine is growing rapidly, especially in terms of infertility. Disorders of sperm can be treated based on the suspected cause and found based on the results of tests conducted. Various treatment options ranging from hormonal therapy, operative procedures, to artificial insemination or IVF can be considered in an effort to increase the chances of pregnancy. Not be separated from lifestyle-related issues also deserve attention to maintain sperm quality.
The healing process depends on the medical conditions found and requires ongoing evaluation. Besides the duration of treatment is also based on the causes of sperm quality disorders experienced. Therefore, the duration of healing and treatment of infertility in men can not be predicted with certainty, there is a good response to treatment, so that in less than 6 months can be seen significant changes, but some are taking more than 6 months to see a sign of change.
Here are some suggestions that can be done to maintain fertility:
Do a healthy lifestyle
