According to the definition set forth by the royal college of Obstetricians and gynecologists UK, infertility is the failure to conceive after regular intercourse for two years in the absence of any known reproductive pathology. At an estimated 100,000 cases per year, infertility is a leading cause of visits to gynecologists in Nigeria. It is a big problem here. And the society has forced an assumption on people, that women are the only ones affected by infertility. They see male infertility as a taboo and one that does not exist. But the fact is 1/3 of the causes of infertility is male related,1/3 female related and the remaining 1/3 either both male and female or an unknown reason.”
Some of the causes of infertility include:
- Sexually transmitted diseases .
- Post abortal sepsis.
- Hormonal imbalance.
- Low sperm count/abnormal sperm morphology.
