Understanding Azoospermia: Azoospermia is a medical health condition in which there is no measurable amount of sperm in men semen or ejaculate. It is the biggest cause of male infertility. Oligospermia is the other term that means low sperm count. It can have multiple causes like reproductive tract blockage, testicular structure and function, ejaculation troubles, hormonal issues. A person can have intended azoospermia as result of Vasectomy. Most of these issues are treatable and fertility of the person is restored. Azoospermia affects 1 percent of the total men population.

Classifying Azoospermia:

  • Pretesticular: Pretesticular azoospermia is characterized by low level of Follicular Stimulating Hormone (FSH) that leads to inadequate stimulation of otherwise normal testicles and genitals. The various causes may include suppression by testosterone, hypopituitarism, chemotherapy etc.
  • Testicular: Testicular Azoospermia defines as abnormal testes or absence or atrophy of testis. Certain causes constributing are genetics (klinefelter syndrome), orchitis (infection of testes), cryptorchidism (defect in sertoli cells). It is non-obstructive Azoospermia.
  • Post testicular: Post testicular Azoospermia defines that there is sperm production but not ejaculated. This is called obstructive azoospermia. The main reasons contributing towards it are vasectomy, agenesis of vas deferens, ejaculatory duct obstruction etc.

What Causes Azoospermia?

  • testicles that haven’t dropped (Cryptorchidism)
  • infected by mumps in late puberty
  • radiations
  • diabetes, kidney failure.
  • prior surgery of the pelvic region
  • testicles that don’t produce sperm (Sertoli cell-only syndrome)
  • testicles that don’t produce mature sperm (Spermatogenic arrest)
  • the absence of testicles (Anorchia)
  • reactions to certain medications
  • Varicocele(when the veins coming from testicles are dilated/wide)
  • Trauma or injury to these areas.
  • Development of a cyst.
  • Genetic disoreders like Y chromosome deletion, Klinefelter syndrome, Kallmann syndrome etc

Signs and Symptoms:

  • low sex drive
  • erectile dysfunction
  • swelling, lump, dysfunction around the testicles
  • reduced facial and body hair

  • low sperm count

Prevention:

  • Avoid exposure to radiations

Ayurveda and Azoospermia:

The foundation of Ayurveda are three Doshas (vata, pitta and kapha), seven Dhatus (rasa, rakta, maamsa, meda, asthi, majja, sukra), Agni (disgestive Fire). The vitiation of any of these component troubles a person a lot. Shukra Dhatu is the essence and end product of all Dhatus. If there is any damage to Shukra Dhatu or any blockage in the flow of Shukra Dhatu Ksheena shukra, a term given to Azoospermia in Ayurveda. Various reasons causing  vitiation of Doshas that tend to further weakens the Agni  (digestive fire) that leads to accumulation of Ama (toxins) in  Sukravaha Srotas (microcirculation). This reduces the nutrition to shukra dhatu which destrupt the formation of Shukra Dhatu.

Managing Azoospermia (ksheena Shukra) with Ayurveda:

Unlike modern medicine that directly jump onto symptomatic management, Ayurveda always work on finding root cause behind the disease and then heal it from the depth along with some symptomatic treatment. At the very first Sodhana through panchkarma therapy (Vaman, virechan,uttar basti)  to detoxifies the body from Ama accumulation and balances all the tree doshas .and then some effective Vaji rasa that contain certain necessary herbs to enhance Shukra Dhatu (sperm) formation like Shatavari, Mushli, Kaanch etc. and certain other herbs that balances the hormones to uplift the production of sperm such as Ashwagandh (enhances nerve interaction), Arjuna (increase blood flow to reproduction organs).

VARICOCELE – CAUSES AND HOME TREATMENT

DESCRIPTION

  • Varicocele – enlarged veins within the scrotum.
  • It is not like varicose veins that appear in the legs.
  • It occurs in about one in six males more common in younger males, ages 15-25.
  • It is usually harmless not associated always with infertility problems by contributing to low sperm production and decreased sperm quality.
  • Approximately 15% of men have a varicocele, among men evaluated for infertility.

VARICOCELE CAUSES

  • The defective valves present in the veins of scrotum just above the testicles.
  • Normally these valves regulate the blood flow to and from the testicles.
  • When normal flow does not occur, the blood backs up, causing the veins to enlarge.
  • Varicocele most commonly occur during puberty, when testicles experiencing rapid growth and need more blood.
  • In about 80% of cases, it occurs in the left testicle area.
  • varicocele cause poor circulation results in a higher blood temperature that raising testes temperature, which act as a serve barrier to sperm production and destroy sperm that is created.

VARICOCELE SYMPTOMS

  • A varicocele often causes no symptoms. Some people may notice:
  • Dull testicular pain or scrotal aching, which gets better when people lie down.
  • Symptoms get worse after certain activities, such as bike riding.
  • Swollen testicle or scrotum.
  • Size changes.
  • Male infertility.
  • Small lump above the affected testicle.

HOW CAN I TREAT A VARICOCELE AT HOME

Home treatment options for varicoceles include:
No treatmentIf a varicocele does not interfere in daily life routine or does not cause fertility problems so people may not need for treatment.
Routine changesavoid certain activities that trigger discomfort. Wear tight fitting underwear or jockstrap can remove the symptoms due to exercise.
IceApplying cold packs to the scrotum may help people feel better. To protect skin, don’t apply ice directly to skin. Wrap ice packs in a towel and use it for about 10-15 minutes at a time.

PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH VARICOCELE

  • Varicoceles can cause three main problems:
  • Impaired fertility,
  • decreased testosterone production by the testis,
  • Scrotal discomfort.
  • Varicocele can cause azoospermia in some cases which cause lack of sperm in the ejaculate.
  • varicoceles are so common and they usually not  undetected throughout life, likely around 80% of men with varicoceles are able to conceive with their partners without any medical intervention.
  • Most men with this problem do not experience hormonal issues or discomfort.

HOW DOES VARICOCELE AFFECT THE TESTIS

There is one way by carrying warm blood from the abdomen down towards the testis in the scrotum.
The testis functions optimally around three degrees below body temperature, thus this warmer blood affect testes ability to make sperm and testosterone production.

COMPLICATION

A varicocele might cause:

  • Shrinkage of the affected testiclethe testicle include sperm-producing tubules.
    When these tubules damaged from varicocele, the testicle shrinks and softens.
    The exact cause of testicle shrinkage is not known, but the valves allow blood to pool in the veins, which can increased vein  pressure and exposure toxins in the blood that cause testicular damage.
  • Infertility local temperature around the testicle during varicocele is too high that affecting sperm formation, production, movement and function.

What is Azoospermia? How to Treat it Naturally?

Azoospermia is the medical term used when the semen contain no sperm during ejaculation.
It can be “obstructive” and non-obstructive, obstructive means there is a blockage that preventing sperm from entering the ejaculate, or “non-obstructive” means decreased sperm production by the testis. It is associated with male infertility.  It happens approx 1% of all men and 15% of infertile men.

CAUSES OF AZOOSPERMIA

Causes of obstructive azoospermia – Obstructions occur most commonly in the:

  • Epididymis – The coiled tube structure on the back of each testicle where sperm matures.
  • Vas deferens – Tube like structure that transports sperm from the epididymis.
  • Ejaculatory duct – The tube from where sperm exit into the urethra and mix with fluid to form semen.
  • Epididymis blockages – Several conditions can cause the blockage in the epididymis:
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Scrotal trauma/injury
  • Rare genetic conditions
  • Surgery on the vas deferens
  • During vasectomy surgeon cuts or clamps each vas deferens, stopping the flow of sperm. There are other conditions that have the same impact:
  • Trauma/injury
  • Previous surgery like hernia repair
  • Cystic fibrosis gene mutations
  • Ejaculatory duct blockages
    some ejaculatory duct blockages are present at birth. Others develop later such as:
  • Infections
  • Trauma
  • Prior surgery
  • Endoscopic surgery
  • Causes of non-obstructive azoospermia
    There are numerous causes of non-obstructive azoospermia:
  • Genetics

  • Radiation and toxins
  • Medications
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Varicocele

HOW TO REDUCE PSA LEVEL NATURALLY

DESCRIPTION – Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by normal and malignant cells of the prostate gland. The PSA test is blood test used to measures the level of PSA in a man blood. If PSA test show high levels of PSA value that indicate the presence of prostate cancer. Enlarged or inflamed prostate can also increase PSA levels.

FACTORS THAT AFFECT PSA LEVEL

Factors that might raise PSA levels include:

  • An enlarged prostate – Conditions include benign prostatic hyperplasia, and non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate can raise PSA levels.
  • Older age – PSA levels raised up slowly as people get older even if people have no prostate abnormality.
  • Prostatitis – infection or inflammation of the prostate gland that can raise PSA levels.
  • Ejaculation – ejaculation make the PSA go up for a short time.
  • Riding bicycle – Some studies show that cycling may raise PSA levels for a short time because the seat puts pressure on the prostate.
  • Certain urologic procedures – Some procedures affect the prostate such as a prostate biopsy or cystoscopy. Some studies suggested that a digital rectal exam might be raise PSA levels slightly.
  • Certain medicines – Taking male hormones like testosterone raise PSA level.

ELEVATED PSA SYMPTOMS

An elevated PSA level does not show symptoms but it may be a sign of prostate problems like cancer. If people have any of these symptoms they have to do a PSA test:

  • Difficulty urinating.
  • Frequent urination, including during the night.
  • Slow urine stream.
  • Urinary incontinence

NATURAL WAY TO REDUCED PAS LEVEL

  • Eat more tomatoes – Tomatoes have an ingredient called lycopene that contain many health benefits. Lycopene gives tomatoes their red color. It is also rich in antioxidants that might protect against cancer. Some studies shown that eating lycopene reduces the risk of developing prostate cancer in men with family history.  Recent studies also found evidence that eating higher amounts of lycopene can lower PSA levels. Cooked tomatoes may give more lycopene than raw ones.
  • Eat healthy protein – In general going for plant-based protein and lean proteins like chicken, fish, and soy is good for overall health. These protein sources help to maintain a healthy weight and protect against disease and beneficial for prostate health and lower PSA levels.
