Male Reproductive Concerns

Asthenospermia
This occurs when the sperm move more slowly than normal, or not at all.

Azoospermia
No sperm in the semen - possibly due to a blockage.

Cryptorchidism
Occurs when a testis is not in it's normal position in the scrotum. Usually, it's in the abdomen or groin instead.

Hematospermia
A condition in which blood is present in semen.

Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism
A condition with low levels of gonadotropins (FSH, LH), that cause lack of testicular function.

Impotence
The inability to achieve a complete or partial erection.

Low Sperm Count
Low sperm count is responsible for a large number of infertility problems in men. Unless there is a clear case of blockage, the low sperm count can be easily remedied. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can cause low sperm counts. By pinpointing the deficiency, a man can usually build up his sperm count by taking the necessary supplements. Sometimes, a low sperm count can be attributed to the use of hot tubs, tight clothing, or anything that causes excess testicular heat.

Necropermia
A condition in which there are dead sperm present in semen.

Pyospermia
A condition in which white cells are present in semen, indicating an infection.

Retrograde Ejaculation
A condition in which the semen is blasted into the bladder instead of out the penis.

Sperm Agglutination
This is also known as "clumping of the sperm." This can be easily corrected by taking 1000 mg of vitamin C per day.

Testicular Torsion
A condition in which the testes twist on themselves cutting off the blood supply.

Varicocele Veins
This is a condition where a collection of varicose veins are in the scrotum. The blood flows to them, instead of toward the heart.
