Andrology

Ashalatha IVF Centre is one of the good IVF Centers in India in providing investigations and treatment for male infertility. Male sub fertility is increasing and contributes partially or completely more than 50% of infertility cases
Causes of male infertility may include:

  • Abnormal sperm production or function due to various problems, such as undescended testicles, genetic defects, health problems such as diabetes, or infections such as mumps. Enlarged veins in the testes (varicocele) can increase blood flow and heat, affecting the number and shape of sperms.
  • Problems with the delivery of sperm due to sexual problems, such as premature ejaculation; semen entering the bladder instead of emerging through the penis during orgasm (retrograde ejaculation); certain genetic diseases, such as Cystic fibrosis,structural problems, such as blockage of the part of the testicle that contains sperms (epididymis); or damage or injury to the reproductive organs.

Andrology  is the medical specialty that deals with male health, particularly relating to the problems of the male reproductive system and urological problems that are unique to men. It is the counterpart to gynaecology, which deals with medical issues which are specific to the female reproductive system.  Male-specific medical and surgical procedures include vasectomy and vasovasostomy (one of the vasectomy reversal procedures) as well as intervention to deal with male genitourinary disorders such as
