Believe in the best - IVF for low sperm count and motility

In 40% of infertile couples, the male partner is either the contributing or sole cause of infertility. Hence, doing semen analysis earlier is important to evaluate the couple seeking fertility treatment. Over 90% of male infertility cases are due to low sperm count or poor sperm quality by shape/movement. In such cases IVF (In vitro fertilization), an assisted reproductive method is a great gift to the male partners to enhance their heredity.

How does low sperm count affect fertility?

A man has to produce millions of sperms from his testicles and they need to be delivered to the woman’s uterus to make one lucky sperm to fertilize an egg. So, what does it mean if a man has a low sperm count? Can his partner still get pregnant?

During his ejaculation, a man releases millions of sperms. To make a woman pregnant, a sperm has to swim, through the cervix, uterus, and into the fallopian tube to reach an ovulated egg. A man’s fertility problem is firstly evaluated with semen analysis in which the total sperm count, percentage of motility and their morphology are tested.

If a man has a low sperm count, it does not mean that his partner cannot get pregnant. If his sperms are healthy and motile, then it may take more attempts to conceive.

The sperm count of a man varies from day to day. The factors affecting male fertility are excessive drinking, obesity, smoking, using steroids, exposure to extreme heat, viral illness, and surgeries for a hernia or undescended testis.

Sperm motility:

Sperm motility is the capability of sperm to move efficiently through the reproductive system of the female partner so as to fertilize an egg. Sperm motility is classified into two general types such as Progressive and non-progressive motility. Sperm should have progression motility for egg fertilization.

The causes of low sperm motility:

Infection, Testicular surgery, Undescended testicles, Injury, and testicular cancer are some of the causes of low sperm motility. Besides, Varicocele, using anabolic steroids lowers sperm count as well as motility.

Once a man is diagnosed with low sperm count and motility, he is advised to make some lifestyle changes such as to avoid smoking, to quit smoking, to skip using recreational drugs, to maintain a healthy weight.

Successful assisted reproductive method In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is referred to achieve pregnancy.
