Sperm is also an important factor in conceiving a baby. Many people in India are still not aware that male infertility is also one of the causes of not being able to conceive. Our society always blame or cuss women for not conceiving. Lack of education has a major role to play in this. Hence, first we need spread awareness and make them understand about fertility and reproductive system.
Now coming back to male fertility conditions, the major reason for male infertility is low sperm count. On an average, the sperm count of a male should range from 15 million sperm to 200 million sperm per millimetre. Lower than 15 million is considered to have low sperm count. And hence, this makes their chances of having baby, extremely low.
Other reasons that causes male infertility are:
- Sexually transmitted infection
- Ejaculation issues
- Undescended testicles
- Hormone imbalance
- Damaged tubules
A proper functioning of testicles is required while producing sperm. Sperm are produced in the testicles when the brain releases sexual hormones. Sperm are then transported through delicate tubes to prostate gland where it is mixed with semen. Semen is the white liquid which a male ejaculates through his penis in the vagina while trying to conceive. It is suggested that a male should ejaculate for 2-3 times before intercourse to increase their chances of getting pregnant.
