In marriages, relationships, not being able to conceive a child can be very frustrating. Male infertility refers to a male’s inability to cause pregnancy in a fertile female. In humans it accounts for 40-50% of infertility. It affects approximately 7% of all men. It is commonly due to low sperm production, abnormal sperm function or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Some other factors that range from health problems, environment, and lifestyle choices can also cause male infertility. Some of these include:
1. Problems with s*xual intercourse:
These can include trouble keeping or maintaining an erection sufficient for s*x (erectile dysfunction), premature ejaculation, painful intercourse, anatomical abnormalities such as having a urethral opening beneath the p*nis (hypospadias), or psychological or relationship problems that interfere with s*x.
