Best Oligospermia Treatment in Hyderabad – Low Sperm Count
Oligospermia is a medical condition found in men, which is characterized by a low sperm count in their semen. Men with this condition find difficulty in conceiving a child and experience symptoms such as swelling, pain or lump in the testes. Moreover, if this problem happens due to the transmission of a virus, then one can experience some burning sensation while urinating.
Causes of Oligospermia
According to WHO, when the sperm count is less than 15 million per millimetre, one can be diagnosed with Oligospermia. Depending on the sperm count, the condition can be classified into Mild, Moderate, and Severe Oligospermia.
- Mild: 10 million – 15 million sperm/mL
- Moderate: 5 million – 10 million sperm/mL
- Severe: less than 5 million sperm/m
Hypothalamus and pituitary glands in the body are responsible for the production of hormones required for sperm production. Impairment in these aspects can lead to Oligospermia.
When semen reverses back into the bladder, instead of flowing out of the penis, it is known as retrograde ejaculation. This is a rising concern and a reason for Oligospermia.
Trauma or Injury
Sports such as horse riding, strenuous bicycle riding, and surgeries such as hernia repair surgery, scrotal surgeries, prostate surgeries, etc. can reduce the sperm count in your ejaculate.
Certain medications like chemotherapy drugs, antifungal, antibiotic, testosterone replacement therapy, ulcer medicinesetc. can cause anomalies in sperm production in one’s body.
