Help please! Could diabetes cause low sperm?

Help please! Could diabetes cause low sperm?

Sperm count: Diabetes can cause a low sperm count - it would be important to get a semen analysis and possibly have the lab look for retrograde ejaculation. This is a situation where the sperm end up in bladder. They can be retrieved by the lab and used with assisted reproduction if needed.

How do diabetes make they're low sperm cells high??

How do diabetes make they're low sperm cells high??

Spelling and grammar: Hi. Do you mean "How do diabetICS make THEIR low sperm cell count go up"? Diabetes per se doesn't cause a low sperm count. You're young to have chronic complications, although it's not impossible. See a fertility clinic, but don't assume your diabetes is what's causing your low sperm count. Good luck! (And practice spelling and grammar). :-)

Can diabetes cause low sperm count?

Can diabetes cause low sperm count?

Yes, it can: Recent researches have shown that men with diabetes have low sperm count. Uncontrolled blood sugar level and fluctuating blood sugar levels lead to low sperm count. In addition, a research shows that semen volume is lower in diabetic men compared with non-diabetic men and that the nuclear dna in diabetic men's sperm cells is more fragmented.

I am male, 28 years suffering from diabetes. I done sperm count is low mortility also low can u help me please?

I am male, 28 years suffering from diabetes. I done sperm count is low mortility also low can u help me please?

IVF or IUI: In general, there are not a lot of treatments that can improve sperm count. However, that does not mean that it is hopeless. In cases of male factor infertility intrauterine insemination (iui) or in vitro fertilization (ivf) can be very successful. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (icsi) refers to the direct insertion of a sperm into an egg during ivf. It has allowed many men to become fathers.

My husband and I are trying to get pregnant but he has diabetes and a heart condition and taking many medications he lost the sperm can he produve mor?

Probably: Obviously, I don't know the specifics of your husband's condition. But in general, neither diabetes nor heart disease should interfere with his fertility (quality of his sperm) or his libido (desire) although long term diabetes can interfere with his potency. (ability to have an erection).

I have been told that high blood sugar stops sperm production. Can my husband get me pregnant and he has diabetes?

I have been told that high blood sugar stops sperm production. Can my husband get me pregnant and he has diabetes?

Yes, but...: Diabetic condition may increase the odd to have poor erection and sex performance, but not affect sperm production much at all. Concerning infertility, it is nice to have both partners checked simultaneously since 50% of infertility result from female factors, 30% from male's, and 20% from both sides. So, be checked and see by following instruction in http://www. Formefirst. Com/onDealSickness. Html.

I am male, 30 yrs, suffering from type 1 diabetes. Got my semen analysis done where the sperm count is low, mortility almost nil.... Help me out?

Abn sperm, Diabetes: Diabetes like any serious medical problem can affect the sperm. There can be other reasons and the diabetes may not be the problem. I like to think about sperm function and not just count. Some men with low count can have normal function. You need a comprehensive evaluation by a fertility specialist for male infertility (check doc credentials). Treatments are successful even if icsi needed.
