When talking about infertility, many people around the world still think it’s a “woman’s problem.” Over the past couple of years it is always women who have been the focus of discussion around infertility. But, what many people don’t know is the fact that over half the cases of infertility are caused by men. How can a man suffer infertility? Well, it can be caused by many things. In this case, it’s related to sperm count. But, first things first: what is infertility?
Infertility is the inability to conceive after at least one year of unprotected intercourse. Since most people are able to conceive within this time, physicians recommend that couples unable to do so be assessed for fertility problems. In men, hormone disorders, illness, reproductive anatomy trauma, and low sperm count can be the cause of infertility.
