Asthenozoospermia Treatment

Asthenozoospermia Treatment

Asthenozoospermia, also known as asthenospermia, is a male fertility disorder characterized by a low sperm motility rate. This means that the sperm are unable to move properly, making it difficult for them to reach and fertilize the egg. Asthenozoospermia is a common cause of male infertility, and it can affect men of all ages.


Asthenozoospermia can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, lifestyle factors, and underlying medical conditions. Some of the most common causes of asthenozoospermia include:

  • Genetics: Genetic factors can play a significant role in the development of asthenozoospermia. Men with a family history of the condition are more likely to develop it themselves.
  • Hormonal imbalances: Hormonal imbalances can interfere with sperm production and motility, leading to asthenozoospermia. Conditions such as hypogonadism, hyperprolactinemia, and thyroid disorders can all cause hormonal imbalances.
  • Lifestyle factors: Certain lifestyle factors can also contribute to the development of asthenozoospermia. These may include smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, drug use, and exposure to environmental toxins.
  • Medical conditions: Underlying medical conditions, such as infections, varicocele, and testicular cancer, can all affect sperm production and motility.


The diagnosis of asthenozoospermia typically involves a semen analysis, which measures the number, motility, and morphology of the sperm. If a low sperm motility rate is detected, further testing may be necessary to determine the underlying cause.


The treatment of asthenozoospermia depends on the underlying cause of the condition. In some cases, lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption, and avoiding exposure to environmental toxins may be enough to improve sperm motility. In other cases, medications such as hormonal therapies or antibiotics may be prescribed to treat underlying medical conditions. In cases where the cause of the condition cannot be determined, assisted reproductive technologies such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be recommended.
