Low Sperm Count

Low sperm count is a condition where there is a decreased amount of sperms in the semen of men. Low sperm count is caused due to various reasons, such as radiation exposure, hormonal imbalance, varicocele, undescended testicles, obesity, and infections. Low sperm count can be treated by avoiding stress, heavy metal exposure, taking medications under the doctor's prescription, and maintaining a healthy weight.
