Treatments for Oligospermia
Treatments for Oligospermia:
The first step in the treatment of oligospermia is prevention. Prevention of oligospermia includes preventing sexually transmitted diseases. This includes abstaining from sexual activity or having sex only within a mutually monogamous relationship in which neither partner is infected with oligospermia. Latex condoms also provide some protection from some sexually transmitted diseases when used properly.
Preventive measures include seeking regular medical care throughout the lifetime. Regular medical care allows a health care professional to best evaluate the risks of and test for sexually transmitted diseases, which can result in oligospermia. These measures greatly increase the chances of catching and treating these diseases in their earliest stages before oligospermia and other serious complications occur.
Prevention also includes not smoking, not drinking alcohol or caffeine excessively and not using recreational drugs, which can all lower sperm counts. It is also important not expose the testicles to high temperatures, such as from hot tubs, which can reduce the production of sperm.
Treatment is directed toward the specific cause of oligospermia. Treatment may include improving the diet, losing or gaining weight as needed, not smoking, reducing alcohol and caffeine intake, and avoiding hot tubs, tight underwear, and other factors that may create excessive heat around the testicles and reduce sperm count. Medications that may be used include fertility drugs, vitamin E, vitamin C, antioxidants and hormone therapy.
Treatment for oligospermia caused by chlamydia or gonorrhea includes oral antibiotic medication. Surgery may be needed if the cause is a varicocele or if scarring is causing a blockage of the flow of sperm.
