Male infertility refers to the inability of a male to achieve a pregnancy in a fertile female. In humans, it accounts for 40-50% of infertility. Male infertility is commonly due to deficiencies in the semen.
Male Fertility can be impaired by lifestyle factors such as drugs, alcohol, smoking, medications, obesity, and strenuous bicycle or horseback riding.
Around 5 percent of the Australian male population of reproductive age is thought to have fertility problems – with low sperm counts or poor sperm quality.
The most common causes of male fertility problems are due to an issue with the production of sperm in the testes or a blockage in one of the reproductive tubes.
Nutrition plays a major role in the production of healthy energetic sperm, as well as the normal functioning of the male reproductive organs.
