Starting a family is one of the best feelings in the world for a couple, and the moment they begin trying till they conceive, they go through a range of emotions from fear, anxiety, and hope-filled in their hearts. While some couples conceive very easily, there are some who have to keep trying with no positive results in sight. If a couple is not able to conceive even after one year of unprotected sex, they are considered infertile. More often than not, infertility is associated with women and not many men are aware that they might be the cause of not being able to conceive. Saishree IVF, providing the best male infertility treatment in Pune has been working with couples to identify the cause of infertility and offer the most suitable treatment.

Male Infertility

Studies have shown that 1 in 20 men have some sort of fertility problem and is solely responsible for the 20% of couples who are unable to conceive. A man’s fertility mostly relies on the quantity and quality of his sperm. If the number of sperm one ejaculates is less or if the sperm is of poor quality, he is very unlikely to cause a pregnancy. The most common symptoms of male infertility are difficulty in ejaculation, reduced sexual desire, difficulty maintaining erection, pain and swelling in the testicle area, decreased facial or body hair or having a lower than normal sperm count.

The main causes cited for male infertility are as follows:

Medical Causes:

Varicocele: It is a swelling of the veins that drain the testicle and is known to be the most common reversible cause of male infertility. Due to abnormal testicular temperature regulation, the quality of sperm reduces, causing infertility.

Male infertility Causes

Ejaculation issues: Retrograde ejaculation happens when the semen enters the bladder during orgasm rather than emerging out on the tip of the penis. Numerous health conditions like diabetes, spinal injuries etc can cause retrograde ejaculation.

Environmental Causes:

Heavy metals and chemicals: Long exposure to hazardous chemicals like benzene, pesticide or heavy metals can contribute to low sperm count.

Low sperm count

Overheating the testicles: High temperatures can impair sperm production and function. Lifestyle changes like sitting for long hours or working on laptop/computer for extended periods can increase the temperature in your scrotum and slightly reduce sperm production.


While some of the male infertility issues can be corrected surgically or with medications, making it possible for natural conception, problems like low sperm count or poor quality of sperm can be treated through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatment. Generally deployed in association with IVF, ICSI has been considered a boon for male infertility patients. The ICSI procedure is performed where a sperm sample is taken from your semen, while your partner’s eggs are surgically extracted from the ovaries, and Using a tiny hollow needle, one sperm is carefully injected into an egg. After injection, the fertilized egg is observed for growth and development. Once normal growth is observed, the embryo will be implanted into the uterus where it has a chance to implant and grow.
