Infertility in men
This disease or trauma to the reproductive organs, a problem that becomes the cause of divorce and instability in many couples, has been listed as one of the main questions of men, given the existing interest-bearing and causing them emotional blow .
Medical studies indicate that between 30% and 40% of cases, is caused by abnormalities in the testes, which are glands that produce sperm and testosterone (the principal male sex hormone).
According to the doctor Ricardo Lopera, serving a clinic in Risaralda, after various investigations, it has managed to note that infections such as mumps, cancer treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy, surgery can cause injury or damage to the testicles.
In an interview with The Daily Otún, the doctor said that the testicles are in the baby's stomach while still in the womb and they must descend to the bag that protects called the scrotum, when this occurs there is a cause of infertility . Another such failure has to do with the excess heat and temperature, as this prevents the regular production of sperm.
"In men often enlarged veins around the testes (varicoceles condition called varicose veins or veins). These raise the temperature "said the specialist, who both said that if these are very large varicose veins can cause low sperm production and irregularity in reproductive output.
In approximately 10-20% of cases, the problem is a blockage of the tubes called the vas deferens where the sperm travel to the penis at the time of intercourse.
Furthermore, anomalies can be caused by scarring due to infection, a vasectomy (surgery to cut the vas deferens to prevent the passage of sperm) or cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease.
