A couple experiencing a difficulty to conceive a baby can be straining and frustrating both physically and emotionally. A number of reasons can cause infertility among couples getting tested for these problems can provide enlightenment on what couples can do to have a baby.

Infertility in men is commonly caused by a low sperm count. This means that the semen that is ejaculated during intercourse has lower than normal sperm content. Contrary to common misconception, amount of semen or seminal fluid is different from sperm count. There are instances wherein there is less semen that comes out in ejaculation but the sperm count is normal. A sperm is only visible under a microscope and an ejaculation can contain millions of sperm. The condition where sperm count is below the normal 20 million sperm per milliliter is called oligospermia.

For fertilization to take place a single sperm out of million others should be able to penetrate a single egg in the woman’s reproductive system to conceive a baby. A low sperm count decreases this chance of fertilizing an egg. Some of you might wonder, there are millions of them surely there is enough to fertilize just one egg. Although it is true that there are millions of sperm in a single ejaculation, the travel of those sperms through a woman’s reproductive system is not an easy journey. Some sperms will get lost along the way, some will die and others will just get pushed around. The strongest sperm of them all is usually the one who gets to the egg and for that to happen there are millions lost along the way. For those affected with oligospermia there is still a chance of conception.
