What is the treatment for asthenozoospermia?

What is the treatment for asthenozoospermia?

Conclusions: Zinc therapy has a role in improving sperm parameters in men with asthenozoospermia, probably through its membrane stabilising effect as an antioxidant and its effect on cellular and humoral immunity by reducing the levels of antisperm antibodies and TNFalpha and increasing that of IL-4.

What causes a man not to impregnate a woman?

Male infertility can be caused by low sperm production, abnormal sperm function or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems, lifestyle choices and other factors may contribute to male infertility.

What is the reason for teratozoospermia?

Teratospermia, also referred to as teratozoospermia, is defined as abnormal sperm morphology (shape), caused by either defect in the head, midpiece and/or tail. It is a disorder in which males produce wonky-looking sperms. This, in turn, affects their chances of fertilizing the eggs.

What can cause Asthenozoospermia?

Asthenozoospermia causes

  • Teratozoospermia.
  • Varicocele.
  • Seminal tract infections.
  • Testicular problems.
  • Antisperm antibodies.
  • Poor nutrition habits.
  • Smoking.
  • Excessive alcohol, coffee or tobacco consumption (or other drugs such as cocaine and marijuana)

Is there such a thing as asthenozoospermia?

In most of the cases, asthenozoospermia and teratozoospermia have the same causes. Both sperm parameters appear altered in the semen analysis, which is known as asthenoteratozoospermia. Nonetheless, they do not go hand in hand in all cases.

Can a live sperm be affected by teratozoospermia?

Yes, teratozoospermia can affect both live and dead sperm. Dead sperm do not have an abnormal morphology in all cases. Sometimes, they are confused with immotile sperm, and performing a dye test is necessary to determine whether they are actually viable or not.

Is there a cure for teratozoospermia in women?

When teratozoospermia is congenital, finding a cure is considerably difficult. And the same applies when it is a side effect of cancer treatments. Particularly in severe cases of teratozoospermia, turning to Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is necessary.

What are the most common causes of teratozoospermia?

The following are the most common causes of reversible teratospermia: As surprising as it may seem, lifestyle affects sperm quality to a large extent. Especially if one is stressed or anxious, sperm morphology can worsen, aside from other parameters such as sperm count and motility.

When do you know if you have asthenozoospermia?

Severe oligospermia is diagnosed when the percent of sperm with poor or absent motility is very high. Although there exists no specific value, we could determine that it is a severe case of asthenozoospermia if the percent of immotile sperm is close to 75-80% or even higher.

Can a man be a father with asthenozoospermia?

Nonetheless, this only works in mild cases of male infertility due to a sperm disorder. In cases of severe asthenozoospermia, restoring fertility with any of these treatment options is complicated. The only option left to become a father would be Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Asthenozoospermia is a cause of male infertility.

How does asthenoteratozoospermia affect a married couple?

Hearing such an unusual and long name for the disease, many men and women are wondering: what kind of diagnosis and how asthenoteratozoospermia can affect their ability to become parents, because this is not the problem of one person, but of the entire married couple.

Can a single sperm test diagnose asthenozoospermia?

Diagnosing asthenozoospermia or any other sperm diagnosis with a single sperm analysis is a mistake, since it might be due to a external or environmental factor, or a temporary circumstance of the patient. For this reason, repeating the sperm test is essential to confirm the diagnosis.
