  • The production of sperm is a complex process and requires normal functioning of the testicles (testes), as well as the hypothalamus and pituitary glands - organs in your brain that produce hormones that trigger sperm production. (punchng.com)
  • The Endocrine Society 3 defines hypogonadism in men as a clinical syndrome that results from failure of the testes to produce adequate levels of testosterone and a normal number of sperm due to a disruption of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis. (ndnr.com)
  • Sperms which are produced in testes and stored in the epididymis, seminal fluid from seminal vesicles and prostatic fluid from prostate gland all are simultaneously ejaculated during sexual stimulation. (mediwave.net)
  • Typically, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels are low (hypogonadotropic) commensurate with inadequate stimulation of the testes to produce sperm. (wikipedia.org)
  • In this situation the testes are abnormal, atrophic, or absent, and sperm production severely disturbed to absent. (wikipedia.org)
  • produce sperm
  • however, a hard enough hit can close or crush the capillaries that supply the sperm producing tissue, resulting in permanent or temporary and partial or total inability to produce sperm in the affected testicle. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2017
  • A 2017 review and meta-analysis found sperm counts among Western men (i.e. men in Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and North America) declined 50-60% between 1973 and 2011, with an average decline of 1.4% per year. (wikipedia.org)
  • testicular
  • Risk factors for the formation of antisperm antibodies in men include the breakdown of the blood‑testis barrier, trauma and surgery, orchitis, varicocele, infections, prostatitis, testicular cancer, failure of immunosuppression and unprotected receptive anal or oral sex with men. (wikipedia.org)
  • If specific corrective treatment is not available, it still may be possible to employ assisted reproductive techniques such as testicular or epididymal sperm retrieval with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). (auanet.org)
  • 45 ID/mL) have been correlated with successful microdissection testicular sperm extraction. (wikipedia.org)
  • Azoospermic men with testicular failure are advised to undergo karyotype and Y-micro-deletion testing. (wikipedia.org)
  • pregnancy
  • Genetic and epigenetic alterations of the sperm may, therefore, have important consequences on early pregnancy. (punchng.com)
  • It is now noted worthy to realise that men may have a role to play when their partner has recurrent pregnancy loss. (punchng.com)
  • The frequency with which sperm defects contribute to recurrent pregnancy loss has not been established and the relationship between standard semen parameters and recurrent miscarriage has been a controversial subject. (punchng.com)
  • The pregnancy rate was 45 % in the treatment group against 12% in the control group, although there was no change in sperm count and motility. (gfmer.ch)
  • In other words, older sperm are less likely to result in a successful pregnancy and, moreover, the cumulative fragmentation of sperm DNA over time increases the likelihood that a small fraction of men will pass on achondroplasia and transmit multiple genetic and chromosomal defects.

  • parameters
  • Men with positive M. genitalium RNA and U. urealyticum RNA had higher sperm DNA fragmentation index (DFI) while the comparisons of other semen parameters yielded nonsignificant results between the RNA positive and negative group. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Therefore, in the present study, we aimed to observe the prevalence of C. trachomatis , N. gonorrhoeae , M. genitalium and U. urealyticum in 2607 urine samples based on SAT methods of infertile men included, and to investigate the association between genitourinary infections and semen parameters.

  • defects
  • Problems delivering the sperm into the woman's body can include swelling and physical trauma, retrograde ejaculation where the sperm are directed into the bladder rather than out of the body, or blockages or sperm duct defects. (sharecare.com)
  • Reproductive endocrinologists treat men having hypogonadism due to defects in the HPG axis with injectable medications such as recombinant FSH, human chorionic gonadotropin, human menopausal gonadotropin hormone, or GnRH. (ndnr.com)
  • While advanced age can be a possible factor in sperm motility and health, the sperm of men below 20 years of age has likewise been linked to an increase in birth defects such as neural tube defects, hypospadias, cystic kidney, and Down syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • hypogonadism
  • In men, CD can reduce semen quality and cause immature secondary sex characteristics, hypogonadism and hyperprolactinaemia, which causes impotence and loss of libido. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a number of situations direct medical or surgical intervention can improve the sperm concentration, examples are use of FSH in men with pituitary hypogonadism, antibiotics in case of infections, or operative corrections of a hydrocele, varicocele, or vas deferens obstruction. (wikipedia.org)
  • Of note,hypogonadism is fairly common in the middle-aged and older male population and is strongly associated with various chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, obesity, hypertension, and osteoporosis. (ndnr.com)
