Hi! I am Dr Shubhada Sanjiv Khandeparkar, Gynaecologist. Today I will talk about male infertility. It is seen in 40% of the couples are infertile. 7% in the male population and in the whole world is infertile. How do we come to know about it? The only way is the semen analysis. What are the common causes of male infertility? 1st is ejaculatory dysfunction. 2nd is poor production of the semen. 3rd is low production of the semen. 4th is poor quality and last is blockage of semen. It is commonly seen in stress male. These types of couple need counselling and distressing therapies.

Then the common causes are infections, varicocele, tumours of the testis, excess tobacco chew, smoking, alcohol consumption, obesity. Other conditions like exposure to chemicals like pesticides. Less or no exercise, huge driving can also lead to this problem. If testosterone is low in the body, it can also cause infertility. If a male has the breast then also this problem can arise. So, the examination of the semen is very important. Thank You.
