I was diagnosed with enlarged prostate and the urologist aske me to bring sperm for test.What sickness can be track by doing sperm test?

Uncertain: Asking for a semen sample would be an unusual request in the process of evaluation and management of enlarged prostate. Unless you are being evaluated for infertility or have recently had a vasectomy, it is hard to imagine why you would be asked for a semen (sperm) sample. ...Read more

How do U know ?: Isn't ovulating ???? Any excited penis will secrete sperm continuously during intercourse, and it only takes one to establish pregnancy.The scene you describe seems to imply low risk but not no risk of pregnancy,Any time you have intercourse without covering up with a condom can result in pregnancy. All forms of birth control occasionally fail, except for abstinence. ...Read more

My husband is 32 years old.. He as problem of sperm blockage , he can't able to do intercourse also.. So what is the solution? And what can be done?

Please Clarify: I have read your question several times and i cannot make out what you mean by 'sperm blockage'. This is not a common diagnosis or descriptive situation that is easily understood. Any man your husband's age that cannot perform sexually should see a physician to find out the reason why and to get on treatment to solve the problem. Men do not have to live like this. ...Read more

I have a problem with my semen volume; and according to my urologist I have prostate atrophy, what could be causing this?

Usually unclear.: Prostate atrophy is not an easy diagnosis to make unless you have had a prostate biopsy showing atrophic tissue. This condition is most commonly seen in patients who take antiandrogenic medication for prostate cancer, but can happen after severe prostatic infection, blockage, or blood supply problems to the prostate. If you are having difficulty fathering a child, see a male infertility expert. ...Read more

May i know what can cause my period to be late?Can the hormones be shocked by having sex? Thanks for answering :)

May i know what can cause my period to be late?Can the hormones be shocked by having sex? Thanks for answering :)

No, but: Hormones don't get "shocked" by having sex, but they certainly can get altered by a pregnancy. If you've had recent unprotected sex, do a pregnancy test. Remember, unprotected sex is overwhelmingly the most common cause of pregnancy. Why not protection against pregnancy and also std/s? Why are you putting your health at risk at such an early age? You should know better! ...Read more
