TOP Doctors for Treatment of Oligozoospermia
Oligozoospermia consists of the presence of an abnormally low number of sperm in a semen sample.
According to the criteria of the 5th edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) Manual (2010), the normal concentration of sperm in a semen sample must be greater than or equal to 15 million per milliliter. If the figure is below this amount, it is called oligozoospermia, and it is considered that there may be fertility problems, with the recommendation of more than one sample being recommended for confirmation.
The method of diagnosis is carried out by means of a spermiogram which, among other features, determines the number of sperm per milliliter of semen.
The Oligozoospermie is divided into several types, depending on the concentration of sperm:
- Easy: Between 5 and 14 million sperm per milliliter of semen
- Moderate: Between 1 and 5 million sperm per milliliter of semen
- Hard: Under one million sperm per milliliter of semen
- A special case of oligozoospermia is cryptozoospermia. This is referred to when the amount of sperm is less than 100,000 per milliliter of semen.
The reasons for oligozoospermia can be very different:
- Partial obstruction of the ducts that lead the sperm from the testes to the urethra
- Changes in the testicular veins (varicocele)
- Disorders of the epididymis
- Hormonal imbalances
- Trauma or inflammation in the testicles
- Changes in the semen due to consumption of certain drugs, alcohol, tobacco or drugs
- Habits that increase the temperature of the testicles (sauna, too tight clothes, etc.)
- On occasion, patients suffering from severe oligozoospermia may even develop cryptozoospermia and later azoospermia (absence of sperm in the semen). In this diagnosis, it is therefore important to take preventive measures, such as freezing the semen to preserve the gametes.
In patients with oligozoospermia and cryptozoospermia, the most appropriate treatment is in vitro fertilization using the technique of ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), as the low concentration of spermatozoa can prevent the correct, natural fertilization of the egg.
Finally, it is important to emphasize that there are measures such as taking antioxidants and healthy lifestyles that can improve sperm quality and provide a more favorable prognosis in patients who suffer from mild oligozoospermia.
