Primary healthcare services could assist with male fertility challenges before specialist services are required. However, before taking a look at how these services and recommended
lifestyle adjustments can help address male factor infertility, let’s briefly look at:
(a) What is Male Factor Infertility?
If the reason that a couple is not able to conceive stems from challenges related to the man’s reproductive system, then the term male factor infertility is used. The male’s reproductive system includes reproductive organs, semen and sperm.
(b) What Causes Male Infertility?
There are many factors that can affect or reduce fertility in men. Sometimes there are problems with the sperm (quantity/movement/shape); sometimes there are issues with the semen (fluid containing the sperm); and other times it’s our habits and lifestyle choices (smoking/poor diet/stress) that make it difficult to conceive. Then there’s also age, hormonal imbalances, injuries, certain disorders, physical abnormalities, sexual problems, chemicals and toxins in occupational environments as well as chemotherapy for cancer – all these factors can affect fertility.
THE GOOD NEWS? Many of the challenges caused by these factors can be overcome. In most cases, an accurate diagnosis can be made, followed by the recommended fertility treatment plan.
