Azoospermia is a condition in which sperm does not generate in semen. Recent studies have revealed that approximately 1% of the Indian male population is affected by azoospermia. A new study conducted by Ajay Murdia of Indira Infertility and Test Tube Baby Center has suggested that the consumption of steroids and medicines for a good physique is emerging as the leading factor behind infertility in males.
The study said, "Too much physical exercise and starvation for the sake of dieting was also causing male infertility, apart from increasing tension and depression. The reasons behind childless couples were excess use of steroids, excess physical exercise and sedentary lifestyle."
Murdia said, "Couples deprived of parenthood is mostly because the male partner is incapable of making woman pregnant due to infertility. Infertility is the failure of a couple to become pregnant after one year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. Due to unavailability of appropriate diagnosis and analysis methods, the actual reason behind infertility mostly is left unnoticed. But now the advancement of medical science has made it possible to know the exact reason and cure of infertility. Approximately 1 in every 3 men is having infertility problem. In such cases, the sperm can't reach inside the fallopian tube, hence the female partner is unable to conceive in spite of countless attempts."
Murdia further added, "There are a number of people whose sperm count was zero. The common conditions that cause azoospermia are hormonal imbalance, injury, testicular failure or infection. In some conditions, sperms are occurring in testes but unable to come out in semen. Men with Azoospermia have a number of approaches available with them and basically individual factors need to be considered for the choice of treatment. Treatment with stem cell therapy promises much hope for the future."
