There are multiple male infertility tests that can help doctors determine the exact reason for male infertility in each individual patient. Here are some signs or indicators that might illustrate in better terms whether you should see a doctor.
This is rare and seldom happens. However, it has been known to drastically impact male infertility and is one of the most severe male infertility causes. If you ever find yourself exposed to benzene, toluene, xylene, pesticides, herbicides or painting materials, and you’re now living with a low sperm count, then there is a chance that this exposure may have had a lasting impact.
Just like chemicals, heavy metals are also known to have an adverse impact on male infertility and can lead to a host of other problems as well.
Exposure for even the slightest period can cause a drastic decrease in sperm production and lead to permanent damage if the exposure is for longer periods.
High temperatures can cause damage to sperm quality. This is why it is suggested that men should avoid saunas and hot tubs. In addition to direct sources, sitting for long periods of time or wearing tight clothing can also result in a visible drop in the sperm quality.
Drugs and Alcohol
If you’ve been abusing drugs or alcohol or long stretches of time, then it is possible that you may have caused damage to vital testicle muscles.
