This blog will let you understand what Azoospermia is and how it affects the male population around the world.

What is Azoospermia (Nil\Zero Sperm count)?

Azoospermia is an infertility disorder that occurs in men. This disorder causes a complete decrease or absence of sperm when a man ejaculates. Azoospermia can develop due to various causes such as a blockage along the reproductive tract, Hormonal Problems, Ejaculation problems, or issues with testicular function. There are two types of Azoospermia that are generally observed, Obstructive Azoospermia and Non-obstructive Azoospermia. 

What is obstructive Azoospermia?

This type of Azoospermia causes a blockage or missing connections in the epididymis, ejaculatory ducts, vas deferens, or somewhere in the tract of the reproductive organ. In this condition, a man would be producing sperm, but due to blockage or absence of connection, the sperm is unable to exit in an appropriate amount. This type of Azoospermia can occur due to many factors such as Infection, Previous surgeries in the pelvic area, Cyst development, and Vasectomy.

What is Non-Obstructive Azoospermia?

In this type of Azoospermia, man faces infertility problems because of inadequate or nil\zero sperm production due to flaws in the structure or function of the testicles.

The defects can occur due to many factors such as genetic causes- Kallman syndrome, Kleinfelter syndrome, and Y chromosome deletion. Hormonal imbalance, Ejaculation problems, and testicular problems such as anorchia, Sertoli cell syndrome, spermatogenic arrest, Mumps orchitis, tumors, Radiation treatments, and diseases such as diabetes, kidney failure, cirrhosis, and varicocele can also be a factor behind non-obstructive Azoospermia.

Prevention Is Always Better Than Cure.

If Azoospermia is not caused due to genetics, there are many ways through which we can prevent it.

  •  Avoid engaging in activities that can cause injury to the reproductive organ. 
  •  Avoid being exposed to radiation.

Beat Premature Ejaculation with these Exercises

Premature ejaculation is a common male sexual disorder that affects approximately 4-39% of men of all age groups. The National Institute of health and care has found that premature ejaculation affects nearly 20-30% of men globally.
 Premature ejaculation, also called as early ejaculation, is a sexual disorder that occurs in men. Pre-Mature Ejaculation can be defined as an early discharge of semen when indulged in sexual activity caused by minimum penile stimulation, whereas typical men's ejaculatory latency is approximately 4-8 minutes.
 "It is said that men who struggle with this disorder have less control over their ejaculation, and many men have reported that they wished they lasted longer in bed." 
 Men struggling with premature ejaculation often report emotional and relationship distress, and some men feel embarrassed and do not indulge in a sexual relationship. Women consider premature ejaculation less of a problem, but studies have shown that the condition also causes stress to female partners. 

How to cure Early Ejaculation?  

 Men avoid talking about their sexual problems which then worsens in time and causes permanent ailments which is why men themselves attempt to treat premature ejaculation by various means such as by distracting themselves and trying to focus their attention away from sexual impulses, medications that help to slow down ejaculation, and by going for surgeries such as Selective Dorsal Neurectomy(SDN)and Glans penis augmentation.
 Some of the above treatments are effective, and some might even give bad side effects for the lifetime; that is why it is suggested to go for Ayurvedic treatment for Premature Ejaculation at Dr. Health that uses sexual therapies to correct the condition from its root and allow to have a stress free life.

Ayurvedic Sexual Therapy

For premature ejaculation Ayurveda suggests going for right exercises for a quick recovery.
Recommended exercises to perform are Kegel Exercise, Cat and camel Exercise, and Butterfly exercise. 

These exercises help to strengthen the muscles in the pelvic region that is in charge of urinary control (starting and stopping the flow of urine) and also help to build control over pubococcygeus muscles that are responsible for triggering orgasm and ejaculation.

Kegel Exercise (Pelvic Floor Exercise)

To perform this exercise, start by lying on your back, bring up your keens, your hands on the sides of your hips, and keep your head down. Now push your stomach upwards; you will feel a stretch in your pelvic area; while doing so, inhale. Lastly, release yourself from this posture and bring back your belly to the normal position. While doing so, try to get the feel of contracting the pelvic floor muscles (Pretend as if you are trying to avoid passing gas). Once you have identified the right muscles, you can perform the exercise while sitting and standing.

Cat and Camel Exercise 

To perform this exercise, get down on your hands and your knees, keep your knees apart according to the space of your hips and your hands directly below your shoulders. Tighten your abdominal muscles and arch your spine upwards towards the ceiling. Hold the position for 10 seconds, then slowly relax your back. Next, allow the stomach to fall downwards to the floor and bring your hands together and stretch your back downwards in a swayback position. Hold the position for 10 seconds and repeat this sequence at least three times or more. 

Butterfly exercise (Bhadrasana)

To perform this exercise, sit straight with an erect spine and spread the legs straight out. Now flex both the knees and bring them near to the pelvic region; the soles of the feet should be touching each other. To obtain this posture, use your hands to pull the feet as close to your groin area. Next, take a deep breath and press the thighs and knees towards to floor. Keep gently pushing the knees downwards. After this posture is attained, start flapping the bended knees up and down like a butterfly's wings. You will sense a stretch in the inner thighs and the groin area.

Male Fertility Is An Important Factor. Don’t Ignore It!

Generally, we think of infertility as being mostly or exclusively a female problem, but did you know that male and female infertility are equally prevalent? Now, it's time to talk about the men. We recount some surprising secrets about male fertility and male reproductive health.
Dad's health is just as important as mum's for healthy babies. Among couples struggling with infertility, complications specific to the man's health are the sole cause or the contributing cause about 40% of the time, says Dr. Himanshu Dhawan (BAMS). 
'The major issues we see in most of the men are related to their reduced sperm count, motility—the capacity for sperm to propel towards the egg – and reducing numbers of normally shaped sperm.'
Problems with sperms might also indicate underlying health concerns like high blood pressure, skin disorders, heart issues, vascular problems, & endocrine (gland) disorders.

Unknown Facts About Male Infertility You Must Know

There are 'n' numbers of problems that males are resilient to tell & show. Male infertility is one of the major issues which can dig deep into any man's confidence. But, the conditions can be improved & treated. People believe different things about male infertility, which has nothing to do with all such conditions. You might know about different myths, which revolve around male infertility problems, but in this article, we will explain some interesting facts that you might not be aware of till now. These facts have been verified by proficient Ayurvedic doctor Himanshu Dhawan (BAMS), who specializes in male fertility cases.

Did You Know???

  • Men are not Becoming Fathers, it's on the Rise.

There have been improved cases that show that men are unable to become fathers & this is becoming more common. There are around 7% of men in India face infertility issues & are not able to become fathers. It is a growing problem and mainly for those over the age of 35 years. The exact cause of it is not known, but their sperm rate decreases by almost 52%, which is a lot. It keeps on declining every year & hence it can cause numerous problems.

  • Men too have a Biological Clock (Effects of Aging).

It means just as women have a specific time in which the chances are high of becoming pregnant, the same is the case with men, too. The  rate for men decreases after the age of 40 years & then it becomes difficult for men to become fathers. Even if their partner becomes pregnant, the tendency of miscarriage rises. Thus, there is a particular time under which you should try for parenthood to prevent all such problems. 
Having a child after the age of 40 years or while having some kind of infertility issues can even impact your child & result in autism, schizophrenia, & cancer in childhood. Therefore, it is advised to consult your doctor & plan your pregnancy.

  • Food Choices are Linked to Sperm Count in Men.

The food choices you eat & the number of meals you take in a day also affect your chances of male infertility & sperm count. Individuals who consume processed meat practically every day have lower sperm counts than those who don't. Doctors also recommend avoiding excessive sugar, fats, red meat, & soya from your diet to enhance your sperm count & help in overall health. For reducing the chances of male infertility, you should eat more fruits rich in antioxidants. 

  • Smoking & Drinking can Lessen Fertility in Men – Skip your Happy Hours.

Not only do tobacco smokers incline to have lower sperm counts, but secondhand smokers also can experience the same problem. A report by World Health Organization shows, "if your partner is experiencing in vitro fertilization with your sperm, & you are a smoker, you face 44% reduction in your pregnancy rate." Excessive alcohol use, meanwhile, can lower the testosterone level, making it harder to get an erection, & is linked to liver diseases, also tied to fertility issues. Other substances which can impair male fertility include marijuana, cocaine, & heroin.

  • Duration of your Sleep can also Affect the Fertility Rate.

In several conditions, the rate of male fertility gets affected by the sleep duration a body gets. This is related to the amount of rest & volume of sperm produced. It is stated that those men who sleep for more than nine hours a day have more reduction in sperm count as compared to the men who sleep for seven hours a day. The ideal duration of sleep defined for young men is around 7 hours to 7.5 hours, which causes a minimal reduction in male sperm count. 

Words from Dr. Himanshu Dhawan

In couples trying to conceive, boosting male fertility is as equally important as optimizing female fertility. Even if they may not know it, men need fertility support too. At Dr. Health, we'd focus on the male side of the equation. Maybe you've been trying with your partner for some time, and you'd like to focus on improving your fertility.
And that's quite the good news – your decision to optimize your fertility is actually very helpful in increasing your chances of becoming a Dad. If you are seeking a good place to start, we will help you!
