Abstract:This article discusses infertility in males. Infertility can have medical causes such as varicoccie, undescended testis or testes, enlarged prostate, diabetes, thyroid disease, herpes simplex virus, congenital abnormalities, and urethral stricture. Smoking over 20 cigarettes daily has been proven to reduce both sperm count and motility. Since cigarette smoking destroys many vitamins and minerals, it is important that any infertile couple do their best to quit this negative health habit. The prescription drugs cimetidine and ranitidine for the treatment of ulcers have both been reported to produce impotence as one of their side effects. INSETS: Emotional consequences of infertility;Lifestyle recommendations.
