The complete absence of any sperm within ejaculate is called azoospermia. If even a few sperm are found, this is considered oligospermia. Out of men being treated for infertility, 15-20 percent is found to have azoospermia. Azoospermia may be caused by congenital abnormalities or failure during sperm production. Infections, trauma, drug use, varicocele and vasectomy can also result in azoospermia.
Sperm count has to do with the amount of sperm detected in a particular volume of semen, but it also has to do with the health and concentration of the sperm in the semen ejaculate. Oligospermia is a condition where sperm count may be reduced by lifestyle, medication or genetic factors. A severe form of this condition is called azoospermia, or no sperm at all in the semen.
Reasons for Low Sperm Count: -
• Varicocele: - Varicocele is a term indicating a swollen vein in the scrotum. This swollen vein can affect sperm production and ultimately lower your sperm count. Varicocele is one of the more common causes of male infertility and low sperm count. • Damaged Sperm Ducts: - Damaged sperm ducts are a leading cause of lower sperm count in men. The unfortunate thing is that there are numerous causes for why sperm ducts would be damaged. • Anti-Sperm Antibodies: - Anti-sperm antibodies are common in men who have had a reversal of their vasectomy. Anti-sperm antibodies are a result of an immune system that instigates a response in your system to attack the sperm you produce. • Klinefelter's Syndrome: - Sperm production can be hindered by a variety of issues, many of which are inherited. One such disorder is Klinefelter's syndrome. Klinefelter's syndrome is a disorder in males where they are born with one extra X chromosome.
How to Have More Sperm By Eating Food: -
• Vegetables including broccoli, spinach, mustard, and other green vegetables help increase your sperm count significantly. Tomato also contains a lot of antioxidants that help increase sperm productivity. Zinc, selenium and chromium also help produce more sperm in men. • If you are drinking a lot coffee, it is negatively affecting your sperm productivity. Caffeine decreases sperm count in men. This also goes for Coke, Pepsi, and other food and drinks containing large amounts of caffeine. Take less caffeine and exercise your body for at least 30 minutes a day. This will help maximize your sperm count. • Liver: Ok so liver might be icky and right now you are saying to yourself no way am I eating liver. But ounce for ounce there is nothing better as a source of fertility boosting Vitamin A than liver. Men who get plenty of Vitamin A each day have a higher sperm count and perform better sexually than men who are lacking in this vitamin. • Brazil Nuts: Between cigarette smoke, air pollution and all the other toxins in the air these days it definitely has a bearing on sperm count. All these daily toxins can damage sperm count, alter DNA inside the cells and possibly increase the risk of birth defects.
