Are men around 80 years old producing sperm considered unhealthy or infertile?

This is evident to some degree in the Male having a vas reversal. Even with viable sperm preg does not occur. ...Read more

How do varicoceles affect male infertility? Is the sperm count decreased?

How do varicoceles affect male infertility? Is the sperm count decreased?

Hot Rocks!?: Many people believe that the varicocele increases the heat in the scrotum. The heat may be the cause of sperm damage. Not every varicocele causes a decrease in semen quality. Sperm motility is often most affected. Surgery or embolization can be helpful but often it is unclear if needed. Always check partner too. I like sperm function tests like acrosome reaction to help decide on treatment. ...Read more
