Fertility in men

In about 80% of couples in Nigeria looking for assistance in conception, male infertility is a major factor. But this does not mean you won’t be able to have a child. The best way to take control of the situation and do what you can to build your family is to find the causes as soon as possible to find the best solution. The Bridge Clinic is there to help you find this solution.

What can cause male infertility?

Genetic conditions such as Klinefelter’s syndrome

We test for these conditions if there is a family history or a complete lack of sperm shows in a sample. 

Hormones affecting normal sperm production

 We test for these conditions if there is a family history or a complete lack of sperm shows in a sample.

Infections

Most infections will not cause infertility, but an infection that is left untreated could damage the tubes that transport sperm leading to azoospermia, a condition in which there is an absence of sperm in semen.

Azoospermia or no sperm count in the semen

    Some other reasons you may be having trouble conceiving:
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammation of the testes
  • Prior invasive medical treatment such as radiotherapy, surgery or medication
  • Being overweight, underweight or smoking
  • Regular contact with chemicals or radiation

What happens when there is no cause diagnosed?

Not having a definite answer can be frustrating but most men with abnormal semen fall into this category. It is still possible to reproduce but if success has not been achieved within three years advanced reproductive technology is available for you and your family.
