Low Sperm Count

Infertility means the biological inability to make a baby and Infertility is also referring to the state of a woman who is not capable of carrying a pregnancy to full term.

The consequences of infertility are manifold and in many cultures, the inability to conceive bears a stigma.

Infertility can have a big emotional impact on you and your partner and continuous mental stress brings sexual dysfunction in men

Depression, anxiety, and marriage problems may occur.


  • Primary infertility refers to couples who have not become pregnant after at least 1 year of unprotected sex (intercourse)

  • Secondary infertility refers to couples who have been pregnant at least once, but never again.


  • The main symptom of infertility is the inability to become pregnant. Specific symptoms depend on what is causing infertility.

  • A normal sperm concentration is greater than or equal to 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen.

  • A count of 10 million or fewer sperm per milliliter of semen indicates low sperm concentration (Subfertility).

  • A count of 40 million sperm or higher per milliliter of semen indicates increased fertility.


In some cases, both the man and woman may be infertile or sub-fertile, and the couple's infertility arises from the combination of these conditions. In other cases, the cause is suspected to be immunological or genetic; it may be that each partner is independently fertile but the couple cannot conceive together without assistance. A wide range of physical and emotional factors also causes infertility.


Female infertility may occur when:

  • A fertilized egg or embryo does not survive once it sticks to the lining of the womb (uterus)

  • The fertilized egg does not attach to the lining of the uterus

  • The eggs cannot move from the ovaries to the womb

  • The ovaries have problems producing eggs


  • Birth defects that affect the reproductive tract

  • Clotting disorders

  • Diabetes mellitus

  • Adrenal disease

  • Thyroid disease

  • Obesity

  • Age-related factors

  • Drinking too much alcohol

  • Growths (such as fibroids or polyps) in the uterus and cervix

  • Eating disorders or poor nutrition

  • Use of certain medications, including chemotherapy drugs

  • Ovarian cysts and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

  • Pelvic infection or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

  • Scarring from sexually transmitted infection or endometriosis

  • Too little or too much of certain hormones


Male infertility may be due to:

  • A decrease in sperm count and impaired shape and movement of sperm. (Sperm must be properly shaped and able to move rapidly and accurately toward the egg for fertilization to occur. If the shape and structure (morphology) of the sperm are abnormal or the movement (motility) is impaired, the sperm may not be able to reach the egg.)

  • Absent sperm production in testicles. (Complete failure of the testicles to produce sperm is rare, affecting very few infertile men.)

  • Sperm being blocked from being released or Sperm that does not work properly

  • VARICOCELE. (Varicose vein in the scrotum that may prevent normal cooling of the testicle and raise the testicular temperature, preventing sperm from surviving.


  • Impotence

  • Birth defects

  • Infection

  • Retrograde ejaculation

  • Age-related factors

  • Being in high heat for prolonged periods

  • Heavy use of alcohol, Gutka

  • Too little or too many hormones

  • Cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation

  • Scarring from sexually transmitted diseases, injury, or surgery

  • Surgery to prevent pregnancy (vasectomy), or failure of vasectomy reversal

  • Smokers are 60% more likely to be infertile than non-smokers.

  • Use of certain drugs, such as cimetidine, spironolactone, and nitrofurantoin

In healthy couples under age 30 who have sex regularly, the chance of getting pregnant is about 25 - 30% per month.

A woman's peak fertility occurs in her early 20s. After age 35 (and especially 40), the chances that a woman can get pregnant drop considerably.

It is important to recognize and discuss the emotional impact that infertility has on you and your partner and it is recommended that women under 30 should generally try to get pregnant on their own.

You can increase your chances of becoming pregnant each month by having sex at least every 3 days before and during ovulation. It is especially important to do so before ovulation occurs. Sperm can live inside a woman's body for at least 3 days. However, a woman's egg can only be fertilized by the sperm for a few hours after it is released.

Ovulation occurs about 2 weeks before the next menstrual cycle (period) starts. If a woman gets her period every 28 days, the couple should have sex at least every 3 days between the 10th and 18th day after the period starts.

Unani treatment of infertility generally involves the use of fertility medication and treatment depends on the cause of infertility.
