What is a low sperm count?
A low sperm count means, that the semen you ejaculate during a climax, contains less sperm than normal. Your sperm count is considered low if you have less than 15 million sperm per millilitre of semen. Fifteen million sperm per millilitre sounds like an awful lot, but when you take into account the fact that sperm are absolutely minuscule and can only be seen under a microscope – perhaps it isn’t quite so much. In view of the fact that the average ejaculation is only about half a teaspoon of semen, it would seem that millions and millions of healthy sperm are needed for conception.
Reducing the odds of conceiving
Having a low sperm count makes it likely that you might struggle to fertilise a female’s egg in order for pregnancy to occur. There could be various reasons why your partner has difficulty conceiving, but in addition, if you have a low sperm count, the odds will stack up against you – when it is also in the mix.
If you are concerned that you may have a low sperm count, here are some signs to look out for: Difficulty with maintaining an erection, or swelling or lump in the testicle area (where sperm is produced) will need a doctor’s visit to establish what the problem is. A hormonal imbalance may manifest as reduced body and facial hair, but levels will need to be tested.
What causes a low sperm count?
There has been a great deal of research, the actual cause of a low sperm count is not fully known. Studies have revealed that there are several risk factors linked to a low sperm count.
Here are some of them:
- Excessive alcohol intake, heavy smoking.
- Using certain illicit drugs.
- Anabolic steroids used to stimulate muscle growth can cause the testicles to shrink, and sperm production to decrease.
- Being very overweight or obese.
- Exposure to heavy metals and other environmental toxins.
- Emotional stress can interfere with the hormones necessary to produce sperm.
You can take action yourself to avoid many of the potential risks. However, the chances are that there may be some undiagnosed or underlying medical issues. Visit your doctor if you are uncertain, or concerned about anything.
If you have been diagnosed with a low sperm count, and want to help increase your count by natural means, begin by following a healthy diet, creating a healthier lifestyle, and getting some exercise on a regular basis.
