MALE FERTILITY TEST
- The “normal range” of sperm concentration is above 20 million sperm per millilitre (as indicated by WHO).
- A low sperm count (oligozoospermia) can be caused by many factors such
as sperm duct defects, infection, hormone imbalances, alcohol and drugs, obesity etc.
- A low sperm count decreases a couple’s chances to conceive.
Male infertility accounts for approx. 45% of a couple’s fertility problems and a low sperm count is the most common cause. The sooner the problem has been determined, the sooner that a couple can start looking at their options and finding a solution. A low sperm count may also be an indication of more serious medical conditions such as a tumour or genital infections that may require immediate treatment.
