Symptoms of Male infertility include reduced sexual desire, erection and ejaculation problems, and pain in testicles. Causes of infertility in men include increased alcohol drinking and smoking, stress, depression, and excessive use of medications.
A man’s fertility or male fertility generally relies on the quantity and quality of his sperm count. If the number of sperm a man ejaculates is low in count/sperm count or if the sperm is of poor quality or quantity, it will be difficult for men, and sometimes impossible for men, for him to cause a pregnancy. (1)
It is estimated that one in twenty men has some kind of infertility problem for one or more reasons with low numbers of sperm count in his ejaculation. However, only about one in every 100 men has no sperm in his ejaculation.
What are the symptoms of male infertility?
In most of the cases, no obvious signs of infertility are found. Intercourse, erections, and ejaculation will usually take place without difficulty. The quantity and quality of the ejaculated semen normally appear normal to the naked eyes. Medical tests are needed to be done to find the infertility problem. (2)
What are the causes of male infertility?
Some causes of male infertility affect either sperm production or sperm transport. Through medical testing, doctors would be able to find the cause of infertility.
About two-thirds of infertile men have some problems with making sperm in the testes. Either due to the low numbers of sperm are made and/or the sperms that are made do not work properly.
Sperm mobility problems are found in about one in every five infertile men, including in those men who have had a vasectomy but now wish to have more children. (3)

The male reproductive system
The pituitary gland and the hypothalamus part is located at the base of the brain that controls the production of male hormones and sperm. The tests are a pair of egg-shaped glands that sit in the scrotum down to the base of the penis. The tests generally make sperm and the male sex hormone testosterone. (4)
Sperm analysis test can help in diagnosing your sperm count both in terms of quantity as well as quality. Regular intake of fertility boosting vitamins and minerals also helps in improving the sperm count gradually.
