Prostatitis can affect fertility? Prostatitis, the secretion of prostatic fluid decreased, semen volume is also reduced, coagulation factor increased, is not conducive to sperm survival and activities. In some infertility, chronic prostatitis is a very important reason.
Male reproductive activity is a large number of links, and in the regulation of nerve and endocrine under the complex physiological processes, any one of which is disturbed, may have an impact on fertility. At present, most scholars believe that CP and male infertility there is a close relationship, CP can make the composition of prostatic fluid changes, whether bacterial or non-bacterial prostatitis, the bacteria or inflammatory cells can be with the secretion of prostatic fluid While the mixed semen, through direct and indirect effects of sperm activities and its function.
Chronic prostatitis (chronic prostatitis, CP) is a common disease of the male genitourinary system, often combined with seminal vesicle, epididymis and other genital infections, young adults are common gonadal infectious diseases, Collins and Canada Nicke reported that the prevalence of CP in the male population was 16% and 9.7%, respectively; the prevalence rates reported by Japan’s Kunishima and Cheah were 5% and 8.7%, respectively; According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) data, the disease in the prostate histology detection rate of 44% to 100%, clinical prevalence of 5% to 50%.Data show that CP in the 20 to 45-year-old male incidence rate of 35%, this time when the peak of male fertility, therefore, the potential threat to male fertility is very obvious.
How does prostatitis destroy fertility?
lower sperm quality. Suffering from prostatitis, the semen of the semen often decline, when the semen pH decreased to the minimum requirements of sperm 6-6.5, the sperm will die, is not conducive to the normal reproductive process, thus affecting fertility.
affect sperm activity. Suffering from prostatitis, the secretion of prostatic fluid decreased, semen volume is also reduced, coagulation factor increased, is not conducive to sperm survival and activities. In some infertility, chronic prostatitis is a very important reason.
kill swallowed sperm. Chronic prostatitis, prostatic fluid often have a large number of bacteria, bacterial toxins and inflammatory secretions. These harmful substances can consume semen nutrients and oxygen, thus affecting sperm survival.
