Misconceptions about male infertility
Infertility, a growing problem in the last few decades is affecting women and men equally. What if a man who is smart, young and dynamic comes to know that he being successful in all the aspects of life is not able to produce offspring of his own? The devastating truth takes a toll on the pride and ego of the male and he finds too difficult to talk about it in open. Women usually are willing to share their emotions and talk easily about their fertility problems, however it is emasculating for a man to talk about his masculinity.
Infertility is diagnosed when there is no conception after a year of unprotected intercourse. Male infertility is connected to low sperm count, no sperms, poor motility of sperms, blocked vas deferens or testicular failures. Besides clinical reasons there are some myths that effect men in general to think about their fertility issues.
1- It is generally believed that men don’t need fertility drugs to increase their sperm count, however use of folic acid, coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E helps to increase the sperm count and motility to certain extent.
2- Sperm quality and quantity is not affected by the age of the male is another myth which refrains men to go for the treatment. Though men don’t experience menopause like women, but the sperm quality and quantity declines by age.
3- Life style choices don’t affect the fertility in men is another myth that leads to troubles. Smoking, excessive use of alcohol, drug abuse, excessive caffeine intake and the ad use of laptops and mobile phones are responsible for low sperm count and also effect the health of the sperms.
4- Exposure to pesticides, insecticides or chemicals can also be the cause of male infertility. Men working in these segments are easily exposed to the hazards leading to infertility.
