Infertility or inability to produce children is mostly attributed to females. However, studies have proven that about 40-50% cases are due to male fertility issues. If the semen contains less number of healthy sperms than required, the male is considered to be sub-fertile or infertile.

The irony is while females require a battery of painful tests to know why they are not getting pregnant, for males it is extremely simple. They just need to give their sperm sample.

Why and when should a male get tested ?
Simple again.

  1. If you are trying for a baby for more than 6 months and have not succeeded, get it done.
  2. If you work in hot environments like in a factory or in a hotel kitchen or you go for regular hot saunas .
  3. If you are exposed to radiations or X rays frequently.
  4.  If you have a history of any infection of the reproductive organs or any sexually transmitted disease.
  5.  If you have taken certain medications like steroids , cancer medications, antifungal or certain antibiotics.
  6. If you have exposure to industrial chemicals like benzenes, toluene, xylene, herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, painting materials or heavy metals like lead as they might contribute to low sperm counts.
  7.  If you are a regular smoker.
  8. If you take alcohol frequently / on regular basis.
  9.  Wearing tight clothing or sitting for prolonged hours is also a risk factor as it increases the temperature of the scrotum hampering sperm production.
  10.  If you are overweight or under constant stress, it causes hormonal imbalances causing a dip in sperm count .

Belong to any of the above categories? It’s better to take action rather than getting worked up . You may have an easily treatable issue.
