Women are mostly blamed when cases of infertility arise in a relationship.

According to a publication, Fertility Hub Nigeria, although not common, men can also be the cause of infertility.

Here are possible signs of male infertility you should be looking out for if things have not been working for your relationship according to the publication.

1. Pain or Swelling in the testicles

Although there may be more explanation to swelling, if the pain is in one spot the main cause maybe varicocele which is bad news for your reproduction. This prevents proper drainage and lowering of sperm count.

2. Low sperm count

Although it is difficult to notice this because low sperm count is defined as fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen, which still sounds tremendous. This can be caused by many cases from infections in the testicles to high levels of sperm-attacking antibodies, environmental exposure to toxins, imbalanced hormone levels, and previous experience of STDs.

3. Problems with ejaculation and orgasm

This is caused by retrograde ejaculation, where semen actually goes backward into the bladder instead of outward this may be caused by neural conditions and problems with the spinal cord might have a role in the difficulty. This should call for attention because sperms play a big role in the whole baby-making process.

4. Smaller testicles

This for males born with Klinefelter’s Syndrome (KS), the main result of KS is smaller than normal testicles, which limits their ability to produce enough testosterone levels for puberty to begin.
