Can oligospermia be cured and how should it be treated? What is male oligospermia? Experts from Shanghai Urology Hospital pointed out that spermatozoosis is a condition of low sperm density that affects fertility. It is generally believed that a sperm count of more than 60 million per milliliter of semen is normal. Other abnormalities in semen parameters often occur below 40 million yuan. The probability of conception significantly decreases below 20 million. After 3-5 days of abstinence, semen is taken for testing. If the number of sperm per milliliter of semen is often less than 20 million, it can be determined as oligospermia. Infertility after 2 years of marriage, normal fertility of the female partner, and a sperm density of less than 60 million per milliliter in the male should be considered oligospermia.
Can oligospermia be cured and how should it be treated? Is it easy to treat?
The treatment methods for oligospermia vary from person to person, and the causes of each individual's illness are not the same. Only by treating according to the causes can good results be achieved. Patients with oligospermia should actively cooperate with the doctor's treatment and strictly follow the doctor's instructions in order to have the possibility of recovery. Targeted treatment for oligospermia can achieve twice the result with half the effort, provided that the treatment is based on the patient's symptoms and examination results, and is based on syndrome differentiation. During treatment, doctors will require patients to combine internal adjustment with external treatment, which can comprehensively stimulate their spermatogenic function and avoid oligospermia.
The high proportion of male infertility caused by oligospermia should be highly valued. What is the cause of male oligospermia? The following reasons are common:
Reason 1: Varicocele: The occurrence of varicocele in males can increase the local temperature of the testes and increase the levels of vasoactive substances, thereby affecting the testicular spermatogenic function. However, the degree of varicocele is not proportional to the quality of sperm.
Reason 2: Cryptorchidism: affects the quality of male semen. About 60% of patients with unilateral cryptorchidism are infertile. Therefore, if sperm density is low and cryptorchidism is present, early treatment is necessary.
Cause 3: urinary system infection: most patients with oligospermia are caused by genital infection. The chronic infection of accessory gonad can affect various laboratory indexes in semen.
Reason 4: Autoimmunity: Reproductive immunology studies have found that male autoimmunity can affect fertility, while anti sperm antibodies can affect the production and transportation of sperm.
Cause 5: Endocrine abnormalities: The normal spermatogenesis of men depends on the normal function of the hypothalamus, pituitary and gonad axis. Any link obstacle will affect the spermatogenesis function. Other diseases such as thyroid and adrenal gland diseases will also affect the function of the gonad, resulting in oligospermia.
Reason 6: Chromosome abnormalities: This is one of the causes of oligospermia. Chromosome aberrations have a serious impact on sperm density, motility, and morphology.
Health Tip: For oligozoospermia, it is a common and widespread disease among young people nowadays. Due to its causes, many happiness that originally belonged to many families has disappeared and no longer exists. Therefore, in daily life, male friends should always be vigilant against oligozoospermia to prevent the disease from affecting the body and causing unnecessary losses to the family.
