Symptoms of Male Infertility
There are several reasons why a man may be infertile. Low sperm production, abnormal sperm function and blockages that interfere with sperm delivery are some of the causes. Other factors leading to this condition include illnesses or medical conditions, chronic health issues, lifestyle choices and environmental factors.
Like the female reproductive system, the male reproductive system is complex, and disturbances or injury in any part of the process can result in fertility problems. Sometimes discovering the cause of the problem can be challenging when there are no obvious signs or symptoms. When there is an underlying cause, symptoms or signs may present which can make diagnosis and treatment easier. Some of these may include:
- Problems with sexual function
- Pain, swelling or a lump in the testicle area
- Recurrent respiratory infections
- Abnormal breast growth
- Decreased facial or body hair which could signal a chromosomal or hormonal abnormality
- A low sperm count
Treatment for infertility depends on the cause. Many male fertility issues can be treated successfully. Even for those conditions that do not respond to treatment, there are options when you want to build your family.
