Natural treatment of teratozoospermia: Reversible cause

The causes of teratozoospermia: - Are they reversible?

Teratozoospermia refers to the poor  morphology of the sperm  in a man's ejaculated semen.

These men have a  lower seminal quality  and sometimes suffer from infertility and difficulty achieving pregnancy.

The causes of teratozoospermia are mostly unknown. However, we have a very effective herbal natural treatment for improving the quality and quantity of semen. Click on the image below to discover this natural treatment.

Natural treatment for teratozoospermia

Defects in spermatogenesis

Most experts agree that the morphological changes in sperm occur during the  last phase of their formation .

The  spermatogenesis  is the process by which sperm are formed in the testicles, which lasts about 3 months.

More precisely,  spermiogenesis  is the last phase of spermatogenesis, during which the spermatozoa, which already have their genetic content formed, undergo a process of maturation and acquire their characteristic morphology.

Once the sperm have their oval head and tail formed, they are released into the seminiferous tubules to follow their path.

Therefore, it is not surprising that any abnormality or alteration in spermiogenesis results in abnormalities in the head, neck or tail.

Reversible teratospermia

Teratozoospermia can be reversible or irreversible depending on the specific cause.

With regard to reversible teratospermia, men can regain their seminal quality  after a few months  if they have received the appropriate treatment.

To check this, it is necessary to do another spermogram and compare it with the previous one.

We will now discuss the possible causes of reversible teratozoospermia:

Way of life

Although it may seem surprising, the lifestyle of men greatly affects the quality of their semen.

During times of stress and anxiety, sperm morphology may deteriorate, as may other parameters such as concentration and mobility.

The abuse of alcohol, tobacco or other drugs are also factors linked to alterations in sperm.

Prolonged exposure to testicular heat affects spermatogenesis. Therefore, the bad habit of placing the computer on your legs, wearing tight clothes, or driving for a long time can cause teratozoospermia.

Finally, diet and sport also contribute to male fertility.

Men who are planning to become pregnant with their partner are recommended to maintain a  good lifestyle , eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly and not consume substances harmful to the body.

Seminal infections

Semen infections are the invasion of microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses, into the male reproductive system.

Its presence is found in urine and semen, causing alterations in the sperm, as well as inflammation and obstruction of the seminal ducts.

The most common bacterial infections in the testes are  chlamydia and gonorrhea . These infections can be fought with antibiotics and male fertility can be restored. If you want more information on this, you can access the following article:  Types of infections in seminal fluid .

The  episodes of fever  caused by flu or another disease may also occasionally affect sperm quality.

Pharmaceutical products

Sex hormones like testosterone, LH, FSH and inhibin have a very important role in the regulation of spermatogenesis.

Therefore, any drug that changes the appropriate levels of these hormones or affects their secretion by the brain negatively affects sperm production.

As we have already said, the alteration of the phase of spermiogenesis prevents the correct maturation of sperm and causes teratozoospermia.

Irreversible teratospermia

If a man with teratozoospermia fails to improve his second spermogram after receiving treatment, one may begin to suspect that the teratozoospermia is irreversible.

In these cases, the couple will have to resort to  assisted reproduction  if they want to become a parent, because it will naturally be very difficult to obtain a pregnancy.

In addition, there are other pathologies or situations that cause irreversible or prolonged teratozoospermia. The most relevant cases are examined below:

Cancer treatment

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy alter both sperm stem cells and sperm production, causing severe teratozoospermia and other more serious changes.

For these reasons, all men with cancer are advised to  save a semen sample  if they wish to have children in the future after they have overcome the disease.

Genetic diseases

It is one of the most difficult causes to diagnose. Normally, when it has not been possible to determine the pathology that causes teratozoospermia, it is attributed to a genetic factor.

Defects in the genes or chromosomes of the sperm are a serious problem because they cannot be corrected.

Associated pathologies

Teratozoospermia can also result from other diseases that mainly affect the testes, for example:

  • Trauma or blows to the testicles, especially in childhood
  • Testicular varicocele
  • Meningitis
  • Diabetic sugar

In addition to all this, the age of males can also affect the morphology of the sperm. In particular, it has been observed that men over 45 have a higher rate of abnormal sperm in their semen.

Can live sperm have poor morphology?

Yes, teratozoospermia can be present in both living and dead sperm.

Dead sperm do not always have a bad morphology. Sometimes they are confused with immobile sperm and it is necessary to make a tincture to find out whether they are viable or not.

Can leukospermia cause teratospermia and male infertility?

Leukospermia, also known as leukocytospermia, is the appearance of leukocytes in semen, with a concentration level greater than 1 million per milliliter. The cause of this seminal pathology is an infection of the male reproductive tract which must be treated with antibiotics as it can affect spermatogenesis and cause oligospermia or teratozoospermia.

You can find information in our article:  Leukocytes in semen.

Are the causes of teratozoospermia and asthenozoospermia the same?

In most cases, asthenospermia  and teratospermia have the same causes. The two seminal parameters are usually changed in the seminogram, known as astenoteratozoospermia. However, this is not always the case.
