Infertility is a serious problem of our time, especially for young married couples who are fighting an uphill battle with it. It is quite rare for both partners to be affected at the same time. This begs the age old question: “Who is more often to blame for infertility and difficulties conceiving, men or women?” Modern scientific data suggests that both men and women are equally to be blamed for this issue. But sadly in most parts of the world, women still take the brunt of the blame when it comes to infertility and problems conceiving (even doctors’ fall into this way of thinking). Most males even have a problem talking or discussing male infertility.
Causes of male infertility
The causes of male infertility are due to both internal and external factors being at work. External factors are: viruses, obesity, malnutrition, injury, radiation, smoking, alcohol, drug abuse and so on. Internal factors are genetic and most of the time inherited. Based on the results of spermatograms there are two possible aspects of treating.
Today, there are genetic tests that can precisely diagnose certain problems related to male sterility. You should also know that there are cases when a genetic test is not necessary and obligatory. Because after genetic counseling, valid information can be obtained that can solve the problem of sterility for a certain married couple.
