One must note that problem of infertility doesn’t always lie with the woman. In 40% of the cases, the man can be infertile and in some cases, both of them may be infertile. When you are planning to see a doctor to have a baby of your own, there are few things you need to ask your gynecologist/doctor and know.
Male Infertility include Male Fertility Evaluation Asthenozoospermia, Azoospermia, Oligozoospermia,
Teratozoospermia, Micro TESE, Sperm Mapping, Sperm Retrieval Procedures, Varicocele
Varicocelectomy is the procedure in which the bulged veins on scrotum are removed. This is done using a laparoscope (called laparoscopic varicocelectomy) or through an incision, conventional style of varicocele surgery.
When you are trying to become a father with your female partner but failing, remember that in 40% of the cases, the problem exists with male, 40% of the times with female and in rest 20% of the cases, the issue lies in both the partners as per statistical data. As a man, especially in India, the first thing you should do is to stop blaming the woman for not able to bear a child. Secondly, put your woman through infertility testing after your sexologist determines that you are perfectly fertile and good in sexual health.
Low sex drive, not having erections like you had few months ago? Not having interest in sex or feeling tired always? These could be signs that are telling you that you are low on testosterone, an important male hormone. Know the symptoms of that you will see when your body is producing low levels of testosterone.
Scrotum is the sack that holds the testicles. Connecting to those testicles are several tubes including nerves, arteries, veins, spermatic cords etc. Varicocele is the enlargement of a veins connected to the testicle. These veins are called Pampiniform Plexus.
If you are not able to get your female partner pregnant for quite sometime now and if you want to get tested for any possible problems, the first thing most sexologists would ask for is a ‘Semen Analysis’ test to check the count of sperms, shape of the sperms and if they are able to move well in the semen. This gives your doctor a good picture about the problem and he/she will be able to treat you accordingly.
Scrotal swelling is the swelling of scrotum (the sack/bag that holds your balls). Reasons can be many from a harmless cyst to cancerous tumor. If you have persistent pain and see any kind of swelling, don’t delay; see a good sex specialist immediately. After a physical examination, your doctor may ask for imaging or biopsy to determine/confirm the actual cause and treat accordingly. Treatment of scrotal swelling may be as simple as a prescription or may even require a surgery.
Premature Ejaculation is quick and uncontrolled ejaculation in less than a minute after intercourse. Apart from psychological problems, deficiency of some minerals in the body such as zinc, magnesium can also cause PE. Eating more nuts, fruits, spinach, trying stop and start techniques, squeeze techniques along with numbing sprays and climax delaying condoms can improve the ejaculation time.
Artificial insemination refers to the process of delivering the sperm into the cervix/uterus of a woman without having actual sex. There are mainly two ways of delivering the sperm and in one of the procedures, the sperm is ‘washed’ and delivered into the uterus to achieve better success rates.
