Stages of Oligospermia

Mild oligospermia

When the sperm count is between 10-15 million sperm/mL, then it is classified as mild oligospermia. Even though the sperm count is reduced, if the motility and morphology are within normal ranges, conception may still be possible.


Moderate oligospermia

Moderate oligospermia is diagnosed when sperm count is between 5-10 sperm/mL. Potential causes may include hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, infections, or anatomical abnormalities.

Severe oligospermia

In severe oligospermia sperm count lies between 0 and 5 million sperm/mL that poses a greater challenge for natural conception. Underlying causes can include severe hormonal imbalances, testicular disorders, genetic abnormalities, or obstructive issues.

What are the common causes of Oligospermia/ Low Sperm Count?

Hormonal imbalances: Disruption in hormones, including problems with the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, thyroid, or testes, can affect sperm production and overall health of the sperm.

Heat Exposure: Prolonged exposure to high temperatures, such as hot tubs or saunas, can affect sperm production.

Varicocele: This is a condition where the veins in the testicles are enlarged, leading to overheating and reduced sperm production.

Hormonal Imbalances: Disruptions in hormone levels, particularly testosterone, can impact the production of sperm.

Infections: Some infections, such as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), can interfere with sperm production.

Anti-sperm antibodies: Some immune system cells known as anti-sperm antibodies tend to kill the sperm cells by mistakenly identifying them as harmful invaders causing low sperm count.

Ejaculation problems: When semen flowing out of the penis, reverses back to the bladder, then it is known as retrograde ejaculation. This condition can reduce sperm counts and cause infertility in men.

Genetic factors: Genetic abnormalities, such as chromosomal disorders, can impact sperm production and its quality.

Lifestyle Choices: Poor lifestyle habits, including smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and drug use, can negatively affect sperm count.

Trauma and injury: Certain surgeries like vasectomy, hernia repair surgery, scrotal surgeries, prostate surgeries, etc. can reduce the sperm count.

Age: As men age, the quality and quantity of sperm may decline.
