Are you facing trouble trying for a baby? Is it becoming difficult for you to maintain an erection? If this is you, then you need to get your concerns addressed! Benison IVF is the leading IVF centre treating male and female infertility with its advanced technical know-how and comprehensive procedures. Low sperm count or Oligospermia is more common than we are aware. It occurs when a man has less than 16 million sperm/millilitre semen.

This low production of sperm makes it difficult for them to swim up to the uterus and fertilise the egg. This phenomenon makes it troublesome for the couple to conceive in the long run. However, you can remediate this underlying condition with a timely diagnosis and treatment. Learn more about Oligospermia and the holistic treatments offered by Benison IVF services.

What Is Oligospermia?

Oligospermia is a medical condition referring to a low sperm count in the semen. A man diagnosed with oligospermia has less than 16 million sperm per millilitre of semen. With this underlying condition, they may find it difficult to father a child because a low sperm count reduces the chances of fertilising an egg. The diagnosis of Oligospermia comes into realisation when a couple trying for a child face difficulty getting conceived.

Benison IVF Hospital identifies the symptoms of Oligospermia using advanced technological methods and practises. However, there are several causes of Oligospermia, including hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, infections, exposure to toxins, and certain medications that we have discussed in detail in the below sections.

How Is It Different From Azoospermia?

Oligospermia is when the number of sperm in the semen of a man is lower than the standard count. However, Azoospermia refers to the condition when there is no sperm count in the semen. Both terms are different, but their results lead to infertility in the long run.

The case of Oligospermia is more common than Azoospermia. As per recent studies, around 180 million couples suffer infertility due to low sperm count in men. There are also cases where infertility results from a lack of both parents trying to conceive. The leading reproductive endocrinologists at Benison IVF Hospital cure infertility problems in both parents.

Causes of Oligospermia

It is not always about the low sperm count but also the quality of sperm present in your semen. Considering the quality altogether, here are the causes for a low sperm count in men-

  • Genetic problem (Klinefelter syndrome)

  • Hormonal imbalances like hypogonadism (minimised hormone production)

  • Undescended testicles in childhood

  • Excessive smoking, drug addiction, alcohol consumption, etc.

  • An injury or damage in the genital area

  • Genital infection like gonorrhoea, chlamydia, or prostatitis

  • Abnormal or varicose veins in the testicles

  • Overheated testicles

  • History of/ undergoing any testosterone replacement therapy, prolonged steroids use, antibiotics, antidepressant pills and chemotherapy

  • Obesity or overweight

Diagnosis of Oligospermia at Benison IVF

If you are unable to get your partner pregnant after several attempts, visiting an infertility specialist is the only viable option. Benison IVF Delhi identifies your diagnosis by running a detailed analysis of your symptoms. Here is all we do to determine the condition-

  • Medical History and Physical Examination

Our IVF specialist will note down your history of sexual intercourse and run a physical examination of the genitals to see if there are any signs of chronic conditions, surgeries or injuries. After a firm analysis, our experts will advise a treatment plan that would include further testing of the sperm count.

  • Semen Analysis at Clinic 

A semen analysis test is suggested by doctors to measure sperm count. The doctors will use advanced equipment and techniques to check the number and quality of sperms appearing in the grid. This test will require you to follow some strict guidelines suggested by specialists to ensure your test results are accurate and reliable.

  • Recommendation of Other Tests

Our fertility specialist at Benison IVF will advise you to get some other tests done like Scrotal Ultrasound, Hormonal testing, Genetic testing, Post-ejaculation urine tests, Biopsy, DNA fragmentation test, and Transrectal Ultrasound (depending on the case). However, you may not have to go through every test. Our fertility specialist will advise you on the necessary tests for your diagnosis.

Oligospermia Treatment by Benison IVF and Health Care Clinic

The treatment for Oligospermia depends on the root cause of the condition. Our specialists at Benison IVF india will recommend you the proper treatment after analysing your symptoms. Some potential treatments for Oligospermia are given below-

  • Lifestyle changes: Certain lifestyle changes can improve sperm count in some cases. For example, quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption, losing weight, and exercising regularly can increase sperm count.

  • Medications: Certain medications can help increase sperm production and improve sperm motility. Clomiphene, gonadotropins, and antioxidant supplements are some medications that are effective for hormonal treatments.

  • Surgery: If the cause of Oligospermia is due to a blockage or varicocele, it may require surgery. However, it entirely depends on the severity of the case and the couple’s consent.

  • Assisted reproductive technique (ART): In severe cases where sperm count is very low, assisted reproductive techniques like intrauterine insemination (IUI), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), or in vitro fertilisation (IVF) may be necessary to achieve pregnancy.

  • Treating Infection: Certain antibiotics can severely impact men’s reproductive health, like burns, infections, etc. In such cases, genital infections are treated first with medications and ointments (if necessary).
