Infertility is no longer just a woman's problem. According to clinical statistics, a quarter of infertility is currently caused by male problems. One-third of them are hereditary azoospermia, and two-thirds are caused by low quality or low sperm count. Old age, poor lifestyle, uneven diet, and environmental pollution are all possible reasons. The World Health Organization adjusted the standard value of male spermatozoa in 2010, and the number of spermatozoa per cc of semen must contain 15 million, which is only a quarter of the number 30 years ago! Maosheng Hospital estimates that there are more than 360,000 men in Taiwan who do not meet the standard, and less than 60% of the sperm counts are motile, which shows that men's fertility is declining rapidly. Three indicators of sperm health: sperm count, shape and motility Whether the male sperm is healthy mainly depends on whether the sperm count, shape and motility are within the normal standard value, which can be understood through automatic sperm analyzer, sperm hyaluronic acid binding analysis method.
Sperm DNA and mitochondrial examination...etc. . WHO semen analysis normal standard Semen Analysis Program normal standard sperm count 15 million/cc sperm motility ratio 40% Normal Sperm Morphology Ratio 4% Sperm standard, can be measured from three aspects The number of sperm It is normal to contain more than 15 million spermatozoa per 1c.c. Insufficient sperm counts may be related to genetic factors, surgical history, sexually transmitted diseases, and a man's overall health. Insufficient sperm counts number list can lead to a decrease in natural pregnancy rates, making it difficult for women to conceive. In addition, insufficient sperm counts are also a warning of poor overall health in men. According to statistics, men with high BMI, high blood pressure and metabolic diseases have a higher chance of detecting insufficient sperm. Men who are tested for sperm insufficiency will be advised to reassess whether lifestyle and general health needs to be adjusted. 2. Sperm type The average healthy male sperm normal type rate.
The top two-thirds of the sperm head is the acrosome region, which is rich in enzymes that help dissolve the zona pellucida of the outer layer of the egg for fertilization. If the acrosome region is abnormal, it is found that the sperm cannot fertilize the egg successfully. According to the classification of abnormal sperm parts, abnormal sperm morphology can be roughly divided into head abnormality, neck abnormality, tail abnormality and sperm immaturity, and then subdivided by abnormal conditions. Of these, head abnormalities are the most common. The reasons for abnormal sperm morphology may be related to congenital genes, long-term adverse environment, poor living habits, infection, hormonal imbalance and testicular problems. For example, cases with varicocele are often detected with pointed sperm morphology. Three, sperm motility Sperm motility refers to the status of sperm swimming. In semen analysis, the percentage of sperm that can swim normally is the test standard. In the semen, at least 40% of the sperm can swim normally as a normal value.
