Male Fertility

Male fertility depends on sperm morphology, count, motility, semen quality and quantity, hormonal disturbances, etc. It requires equal attention as that of female fertility issues as infertility of either gender results in difficulty getting pregnant. Physical inactivity, obesity, smoking, alcoholism, drug abuse, and stress are contributing factors to male infertility. Based on the cause of infertility, surgical and non-surgical approaches are available for its correction.
