Male infertility is present in up to 40% of infertile couples. Unfortunately, many men are not aware of their own fertility health. They are either misinformed or not well- informed. One common reason is men are not as inclined to ask about their fertility health like women do.
A recent 2016 research survey published in the Journal Human Reproduction reveals that men had limited knowledge with respect to their fertility health when compared to women.
Male fertility depends on the proper function of a complex system of organs and hormones. Some common factors that affect male fertility include hormonal imbalances, stress, and obesity.
Here are the other causes of male infertility:
Enlarged veins in scrotum (a condition called varicocele)
A blockage in male reproductive system
Underlying health conditions
Lifestyle habits like smoking, overuse of alcohol
