    Infertility Disorders – Oligospermia and Azooprenia Ayurvedic Treatment

    While a medical condition in which a man doesn't contain any sperm is referred to as azoospermia, it is prevalent in about 1% of the male population and can be seen in up to 20% of the male infertility situations. However, despite being an abnormal disease, many of its forms are curable, and the person can regain its fertility.

    According to the sperm count, people can be classified according to their situation as:

    1)      Mild- 

    The people with 10 million to 15 million sperm per milliliter are considered as people with mild concentration.

    2)      Moderate- 

    People with 5 million to 10 million sperm count are considered to be in this group.

    3)      Severe- 

    People with low concentration, i.e., fewer than 5 million are considered to be in severe condition.

    4)      Critical- 

    People with no sperm count or insignificant sperm count can be considered in this category. The said person may suffer from Azoospermia. The person suffering from Azoospermia can be further classified into three categories depending upon the condition of the disease. They are Pretesticular Azoospermia, testicular azoospermia, and post-testicular Azoospermia.

    The diseases caused in a person due to infertility can be diagnosed as people with the above-mentioned abnormalities. The disease is investigated after infertility is detected. In general, the cause of infertility is often related to general health, sexual health past fertility, libido and sexual activities.

    Causes of infertility:

    Many causes can be analyzed for the diseases related to sperm count and infertility such as Oligospermia and Azoospermia. Some of them being:

    1)      Genetics-

    Genetic factors can cause Pretesticular, testicular and post-testicular azoospermia or Oligospermia. The abnormalities in the chromosomes are inversely proportional to the sperm count, i.e., if the chromosomal abnormalities are more, then the sperm count would be less and if the sperm count is more than the abnormalities would be less. The occurrence of diseases due to genetic factors accounts for about 10-15 percent of the population of males suffering from low sperm count and infertility.

    2)      Other causes: 

    Many other causes lead to infertility diseases. Some of them being poor hormonal support, poor general health including intake of drugs, alcohol, smoking, etc. Testicular factors include age, neoplasm, trauma, Hydrocele, mumps, malaria, suppression of sperm mortality is often seen as a cause for the factors mentioned above, whereas post-testicular causes include vas deferens obstruction, infection, ejaculatory duct obstruction, etc. 


    Oligospermia is treatable while azoospermia has some restrictions in the process of treatment, (it can be cured only up to a certain extent). The most effective way is to manage the infertility disease with precaution. There are many allopathic ways for the treatment of diseases like FSH etc. but treatments like oligospermia Ayurvedic Treatment dominates the disease. Ayurveda has a separate, distinct branch that deals with effective semen and spermatogenesis called Vjikarantantra or aphrodisiac medicines.

    In Ayurveda, Oligospermia is related to Napunsakta (impotence). It has four main causative factors – bheejopat (lower sperm quantity), old age and kshayaj (severe loss of Shukra dhatu or reproductive tissue). The dosha (crimes) in this condition is pitta, which when imbalanced leads to loss of Shukra.
