What are the causes of male infertility?
Male fertility is negatively affected by a number of factors. These particularly include smoking, use of marijuana, alcohol, increased temperature in the genital area (due to tight clothing, use of a laptop on your lap, etc.) or stress. We also distinguish between pre-testicular, testicular and post-testicular causes.
- Pre-testicular causes – insufficient development of the male gonads (testicles)
- Testicular causes – poor quality ejaculate containing little or no sperm
- Post-testicular causes – impassable vas deferens, prostatitis
- The basic test for male infertility is a semen analysis (spermiogram), which determines the quantity and quality of sperm. Based on the results of the semen analysis, further examinations and possible treatment of male infertility are planned.
