Oligozoospermia

Overview

Oligozoospermia is a medical condition in which the semen of a man contains a low concentration of sperm cells. Specifically, it is diagnosed when the concentration of sperm is less than 15 million per milliliter of semen. Oligozoospermia is a common cause of male infertility, as a low concentration of sperm can make it more difficult for a man to father a child.

There are several factors that can contribute to oligozoospermia, including hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, infections, and exposure to toxins or radiation. Some lifestyle factors, such as heavy alcohol or drug use, smoking, and obesity, can also contribute to oligozoospermia.

Symptoms of oligozoospermia may include difficulty conceiving a child, as well as a decreased volume of semen during ejaculation. However, many men with oligozoospermia do not experience any symptoms and may not be aware of the condition until they try to conceive a child.

Treatment for oligozoospermia depends on the underlying cause of the condition. For example, if oligozoospermia is caused by an infection, antibiotics may be prescribed to treat the infection. If hormonal imbalances are contributing to the condition, hormone therapy may be recommended.

In some cases, lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, reducing alcohol intake, or losing weight can help improve sperm count and fertility. Assisted reproductive technologies, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF), may also be recommended for couples who are struggling to conceive due to oligozoospermia.

It is important for men who are experiencing infertility or suspect that they may have oligozoospermia to speak with their healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause of their symptoms and explore the most appropriate treatment options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before your first appointment, one of our clinical care coordinators will call you to discuss your case and review what appointments to expect. The clinical care coordinator will make sure all appointments are arranged in a timely fashion. Each of our patients is unique and treated individually, and the schedule of doctors you see will be tailored specifically to your needs. The doctors will discuss your care options with you and answer any questions that you may have regarding your diagnosis and management.

We are dedicated to helping pregnant women and their families after a significant birth defect or genetic condition has been detected. Specialists from both obstetrics and pediatrics work together as a team to determine the best way to care for you and your unborn baby, both during and after your pregnancy.

Whenever possible, we create an integrated appointment plan, so that you can meet with the multiple subspecialists involved in your case. Some patients come here for a second opinion and go back to their obstetrician. Other patients transfer their care to Columbia as their delivery date approaches to make sure their baby immediately receives the necessary specialized pediatric care after birth.
