Production of Sperms | Transport
Low sperm count is the main result of the causes associated
with production of sperms. Technically your diagnosis will
be termed as Oligospermia or
When sperm production is affected then it is a cue that your
sperm producing hormones, testosterone, FSH
and LH have an imbalance level
or you could have damaged testicles or absence of testicles.
Apart from these internal causes, certain external causes are also
responsible for developing infertility. Over heated varicoceles, tight
clothing, excessive exercise and extreme hot water baths can prove
detrimental to fertility.
The sperm production in your reproductive system is ruled
by testosterone, FSH (follicle
stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone).
Over production or deficiency in the FSH or the LH hormones retards
the stimulation of the testicles and the testosterone respectively.
In effect your system is unable to produce adequate amount of sperms
55% of the males are diagnosed as infertile due to damaged testicles.
Unable to respond to hormones, the testes lose the ability to produce
healthy and viable sperms.
Absence of testicles
Fertility can be inhibited when there is an absence of testicles or
when the vas deferens is absent from the testicles.
in steaming hot water baths, Jacuzzis can over heat the testicles.
It can stop sperm production completely
Long hours of
sedentary work can heat up the genitals causing low sperm production
the fat layers to heat up the testicles.
