Varicocele

Varicocele is varicose veins of the spermatic cord. More common it occurs on the left. This is due to the inflow of the seminal vein into the renal with the left side. Prolonged venous blood stasis provokes ischemia, sclerotic changes in the testicle, differentiation of spermatogenic epithelium is disturbed. In the absence of timely treatment, a reduction in total spermatogenesis is possible. Among the causes of secondary infertility, varicocele is 80%.

 

Hypospadias

This is a congenital anomaly of the development of the penis, in which there is underdevelopment factor, a change in shape, size, movement from the normal position of the opening of the urethra. Physical changes occur due to shortening of the urethra. The disease is treated by means of surgical intervention.

 

Hypogonadism

A lack of sex hormones leads to a lack of libido, depression, impaired potency. The forecast is quite favorable. In most patients, using hormone therapy, it is possible to normalize the level of androgens in the serum.

 

Cryptorchidism

If the operation is not performed on time, the androgenic function is impaired, which leads to impotence.

 

Infectious diseases

A number of diseases of an infectious nature (especially those related to the so-called children's infections) with untimely or improper treatment cause testicular tissue damage, leading to a violation of spermatogenesis. Often, such changes are irreversible. Most often recorded violations of the male reproductive system after suffering mumps.
