A MAN’S ROLE
WHAT’S A MAN TO DO?
As the old saying goes, “In life, a man must build a house, plant a tree and have a child.” The first two tasks are relatively easy to accomplish. Having a child, however, is a dream that more and more men are finding difficult and even impossible to fulfill in today’s world.
For a variety of reasons, fewer and fewer children are being born worldwide. Currently 10-15% of all couples worldwide are involuntarily childless. The causes of infertility are spread equally among women (the “female factor”) and men (the “male factor”), i.e. 50:50, a combination of both.
THE «MALE FACTOR»
In 40-90% of cases, the cause of male infertility is deficient sperm production. Studies have shown a significant 58% decrease in sperm count over the last 50 years. 1,2
An analysis of over 100 published studies shows a significant trend of decreasing sperm density over the last 60 years, especially in the USA and Europe/Australia (-1-3% per year). 3,4
While there are numerous medical treatment options for women, in-vitro fertilization (IVF) as one example, the options available for men to improve their decisive factor–semen quality—are very limited.
