Poor Sperm Health


Oligozoospermia

Explanation: Low sperm count in the ejaculate.

May be caused by:

  • Poor production of sperm
  • Impaired transport of sperm

Causes of poor production:

  • Stress
  • Infections
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer surgery
  • Malposition of testes
  • Genetic & environmental factors
  • Alcohol or drug abuse

 Causes of impaired transport

  • Inflammation
    Varicocele (varicose veins)
    Genetic conditions

Help from PROfertil®

  • By using PROfertil® sperm density was increased by 215.5% on average.

Asthenozoospermia

Explanation: Reduced motility of the sperm in the ejaculate.

Help from PROfertil®

  • In the control group, PROfertil increased the number of progressively moving sperm by 83.1% in the treatment group.
  • Total motility (movement) is increased by 36.4% on average.

Increased motility of the sperm combined with an improvement in all other sperm parameters lead to an increase in the rate of fertilisation

Teratozoospermia

Explanation: Increased levels of abnormally shaped sperm (sperm morphology)

Help from PROfertil®

  • By using PROfertil sperm morphology was improved from -2,4% to 23,0%

 


Oligoasthenoteratozoospermia (“triple defect”)

Oligoasthenoteratozoospermia is an abnormal change of sperm with three abnormal parameters:

  • Not enough sperm (“oligo”)
  • Low motility of the sperm (“astheno”)
  • Increased levels of abnormally shaped sperm (“terato”)

Caused by:

  • Malposition of testes
  • Varicocele
  • Chromosome abnormalities
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Infections
  • Medication or alcohol/drug abuse

Help from PROfertil®

  • Sucessful improvement of: sperm density, motility and morphology

DNA fragmentation

Sperm is the bearer of genetic information – it has to transport the DNA safely packed packaged into the egg.

Help from PROfertil®

  • Latest results of the 2012 clinical study showed that male infertility may also be associated with damaged genetic material (DNA fragmentation). After three months of taking PROfertil® there was a successful increase in undamaged DNA from 56% to 74%.

Aspermia: absence of semen

Azoospermia: absence of sperm

Necorzoospermia: all sperm in the ejaculate are dead
