Reasons for low sperm count
Your sperm count is highly influenced by lifestyle choices, which remains one of the biggest killers of sperm count. Obesity, smoking, and alcohol can have a negative effect on your sperm count, and thereby your chances of obtaining pregnancy.
However, it is not only lifestyle choices that influence your sperm quality. Some men have low sperm count through genetics, and some are infertile. If you have a low sperm count, you may want to explore the possibility of receiving help from fertility treatments like ICI, IUI, IVF, or ICSI treatment, where the sperm is either injected into the uterus or straight into the egg in a laboratory. Another option is to improve your sperm quality, making it possible for men struggling with low sperm count to get pregnant.
