Common causes of male infertility
* Low sperm count: This can range from none to lower sperm count. That is if the body isn’t producing sperm there can be many reasons. It could be due to hormonal issues of testicular failure or may be from treatments for certain illnesses and cancer like chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
* Blockage vas deferens: The tubes (vas deferens) that transport sperm from the testicles to the penis can be blocked for a variety of reasons including prior vasectomy, injury, infection or physical anomaly.
* Exposure to Harmful Substances: Environmental or work hazards can also lead to problems with fertility.
* Abnormal Sperm Count: The sperm cells are malformed.
* Bad sperm mobility: The sperm formed in men are neither fast nor agile enough means they die before they can reach the egg.
* Failure to ejaculate: It occurs when impairment of the muscles or nerves of the bladder neck stops it from closing during ejaculation, allowing semen to flow backwards into the bladder during sex rather than into the vagina.
* Genetic disease: In rare cases, it could be due to genetic disease such as cystic fibrosis or a chromosomal abnormality.
