Factors that Affect Male Fertility

Fertility, not just women but men also have it. In the past most people think when a family does not have children, it is definitely the cause is the wife’s infertility. However, as technology advances, many medical studies show that many factors can affect male fertility. If the fertility of a man disturbed then it will impact the ability to make their partner pregnant.

Genetic disorders, hormonal disorders, varicocele, sperm channel obstruction, impotence, smoking habits, alcoholic drinking habits, radiation effects and influences of drugs were factors that most influence on a man’s fertility.

Although very rare, the infertility may be caused by man genetic disorders like cystic fibrosis. Genetic disorders include abnormalities in sex chromosomes, which occurs in Klinefelter syndrome.

Hormonal disturbance occurs can inhibit sperm production. To stimulate the testes to produce sperm, it takes a hormone produced by the gland pituitary. When the hormone is not present, or the amount of significant decreases in the testes of course the performance will not be perfect.
Varicocele is the dilation of blood vessels around the scrotal veins. This usually indicated by the lump on the top of the glens and usually occurred at the left. Whereas sperm channel obstruction usually caused by congenital birth because no sperm formation in part the channel. Also infection can also cause blockage of sperm channel. Reproductive tract infections can be caused by the bacteria through a sexually transmitted disease. If it is caused by bacterial infection may occur due to blockage of male reproductive tract adhesions.

Impotence is the inability to stand erect penis. In order to erect, the penis requires adequate blood flow. Because it is a disease of blood vessels (e.g. atherosclerosis) can cause impotence. Impotence can also occur as a result of a blood clot due to surgery or blood vessels that cause the disruption of arterial blood flow to the penis. Nerve damage leading to and leaving the penis can also cause impotence.

Be careful with smoking and alcoholic drinking habits! Smoking may increase the risk of infertility and erectile dysfunction in men. Nicotine makes blood thickens so it can not circulate smoothly, including the genital blood vessels. Consequently, sexual disorders like premature ejaculation, erectile imperfect, even impotency. Whereas alcohol in large amounts can decrease the levels of the hormone testosterone that disrupt sperm production.
Men who work a lot to do with radiation must also be careful. Radiation would give negative effects on sperm concentration and quality. Besides the radiation affected the sperm will have a less good swimming movements that would reduce the opportunity for conception.

In addition to the above matters consumption of drugs must also be considered. Several types of medication can affect fertility rates. Drugs such as antibiotics, pain relievers, tranquilizers, and hormonal drugs can lower levels of male fertility.
