Homeopathy for Oligospermia
Sterility in male is responsible for the infertility of approximately one half of all childless marriages. The cause is usually defective development of the germinal epithelium in the seminiferous tubules, with Oligospermia or Azoospermia but may follow hypogonadism due to antibodies to sperms. Klinefelter’s syndrome is almost invariably associated with Azoospermia. The additional X chromosome may be recognized by examination of buccal smear for Barr bodies, but confirmation requires a full karyotype analysis. (3)
As per old diagnostic criteria sperm concentrations of less than 20 million sperm/ml were considered low or oligospermic
Recently, the WHO reassessed diagnostic criteria and it is less than 15 million sperm / ml, consistent with the 5th percentile for fertile men.
Sperm concentrations fluctuate and Oligospermia may be temporary or permanent.
Inadequate support of the testes, poor hormonal support and poor general health including:
• Hypogonadism due to various causes
• Drugs, alcohol, smoking
• Strenuous riding (bicycle riding, horseback riding)
• Medications, including androgens. Testicular factors
Factors where testes produce semen of poor quality despite adequate hormonal support and include:
• Genetic defects on the Y chromosome (microdeletions)
• Abnormal set of chromosomes (Klinefelter syndrome)
• Neoplasm, e.g. seminoma
• Defects in USP26 Post-testicular causes
Conditions that affect the male genital system as well as problems in ejaculation:
• Vas deferens obstruction
• Lack of Vas deferens, often related to genetic markers for Cystic Fibrosis
• Infection, e.g. prostatitis
• Ejaculatory duct obstruction Idiopathic oligospermia
In about 30 % of infertile men no causative factor is found for their decrease in sperm & is termed "idiopathic" (unexplained).
Medical or surgical intervention will be solely decided after the diagnosis of the causes.
idiopathic form requires : combination of many medical approaches like clomiphene citrate, tamoxifen, HMG, FSH, HCG, testosterone, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, anti-oxidants, carnitine, acetyl-L-carnitine, zinc, high-protein diets.
