Spermatogenesis is the process of sperm development which takes place within testes. It takes 10 weeks to develop mature sperm from Spermatogonia (Germ cell). These medicines restore spermatogenesis process and helps in maturation of sperm cell. Azoospermia (Maturation Arrest Defect and Hypospermatogenesis) patients have to continue these medicines for 3 months, and then patient should repeat semen analysis. Many patients count has been reached to normal level after 3 months of treatment and conception takes place in a natural way. Success rate is 40% in Azoospermia cases.
More than 63% of sperm should be motile for normal fertility, but even men whose motile sperm constitutes only about a third of the total sperm count should not rule out conception. Testing for sperm motility is important for predicting the success of assisted reproductive technologies and which men might be candidates for the intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) fertilization technique, in which the sperm is inserted directly into the egg and motility plays almost no role.
Sperm are made in hundreds of microscopic tubes, known as seminiferous tubules, which make up most of the testicles. Surrounding these tubules are clumps of tissue containing Leydig cells, which produce testosterone when stimulated by luteinizing hormone (LH).
• Sperm begin partially embedded in nurturing Sertoli cells, which are located in the lower parts of the seminiferous tubules.
• As they mature and move along, they are stored in the upper part of the tubules. Young sperm cells are known as spermatids.
• When the sperm has completed the development of its head and tail, it is released from the cell into the epididymis. This C-shaped tube is 1/300 of an inch in diameter and about 20 feet long. It loops back and forth on itself within a space that is only about one and a half inches long. The sperm's journey through the epididymis takes about 3 weeks.
• The fluid in which the sperm is transported contains sugar in the form of fructose, which provides energy as the sperm matures. In the early stages of its passage, the sperm cannot swim in a forward direction and can only vibrate its tail weakly. By the time the sperm reaches the end of the epididymis, however, it is mature and looks like a microscopic squirming tadpole.
• At maturity, each healthy sperm consists of a head that contains the man's genetic material (his DNA) and a tail that lashes back and forth at great speed to propel the head forward at about four times its own length every second. The ability of a sperm to move forward rapidly and straight is probably the most significant determinant of male fertility.
Ejaculation: When a man experiences sexual excitement, nerves stimulate the muscles in the epididymis to contract, which forces the sperm out through the penis:
• After being produced in the testicle, the sperm first pass through the epididymis and then into one of two rigid and wire-like muscular channels, called the vasa deferentia. (A single member of this pair of channels is called a vas deferens.)
• Muscle contractions in the vas deferens from sexual activity propel the sperm along past the seminal vesicles. These are clusters of tissue that contribute fluid, called seminal fluid, to the sperm. The vas deferens also collects fluid from the nearby prostate gland. This mixture of various fluids and sperm is the semen.
• Each vas deferens then joins together to form the ejaculatory duct. This duct, which now contains the sperm-containing semen, passes down through the urethra. (The urethra is the same channel in the penis through which a man urinates, but during orgasm, muscles close off the bladder so that urine cannot enter the urethra.)
• The semen is forced through the urethra during ejaculation, the final stage of orgasm when the sperm is literally shot out of the penis.
Natural Herbal Treatment for Azoospermia or Nil Sperm Count Azoospermia is a condition also known as nil sperm count. It is the reason why many couples can’t conceive babies and it is a cause of frustration especially in young families.
Azoospermia means that a man has either no sperm in his ejaculate or he has absolutely zero sperm count. There can be many causes for this condition, but it has no symptoms at all. Men can only discover it when they notice they can’t make babies and perform a fertility test.
Once discovered, azoospermia is curable and you can regain your fertility. It is best to choose a natural cure or treatment for azoospermia or nil sperm count. In the great majority of cases, this condition is the result of a hormonal imbalance. Natural treatments are based on herbs that substitute the male hormones in the body and balance their levels. They increase the sperm count and also the sperm motility.
Natural herbal treatment for azoospermia or nil sperm count is mainly composed of ayurvedic herbs. These have properties similar with those of the hormones that enhance the sperm production. Tribulus terrestris is one of the herbs that cure azoospermia. It is used for many years in fertility related problems, low male libido and other sexual disorders like erectile dysfunction. Tribulus terrestris increases the level of estrogen and testosterone and also improves the blood circulation in the entire area, but mainly in the reproductive system and the urinary tract.
Safed musli is highly recommended by specialists in the ayurvedic medicine because it seems to have properties that improve semen count, semen volume and sperm motility. These are the main factors that affect the fertility in men. Safed musli is also helpful in a great variety of other conditions generated by a malfunctioning of the reproductive system. It seems to be increasing both fertility and performance in men. There are also other ayurvedic herbs that treat azoospermia. Ashwaganda, shilajit and mucuna pruriens have good effects on the health of the reproductive system. They also have aphrodisiac effects. Mucuna pruriens is the most powerful aphrodisiac. It also increases the testosterone level and the libido, by stimulating the production of dopamine. Mucuna pruriens also has effects at the level of the nervous system, toning it and increasing sensitivity and coordination. Azoospermia or nil sperm count is entirely treatable with a natural herbal treatment. As a general rule for avoiding this condition, avoid smoking, caffeine and alcohol, never wear tight underwear and avoid excessive heating of the testicles. Eat healthy and keep your weight under control.
AZOOSPERMIA – Azoospermia is defined as the absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculation. Spermatogenesis is the process of sperm development which takes place within testes. It takes 10 weeks to develop mature sperm from Spermatogonia (Germ cell). These medicines restore spermatogenesis process and helps in maturation of sperm cell.
Azoospermia (Maturation Arrest Defect and Hypo spermatogenesis) patients have to continue these medicines for 3 months, and then patient should repeat semen analysis. Many patients count has been reached to normal level after 3 months of treatment and conception takes place in a natural way. Success rate is 40% in Azoospermia cases.
OLIGOSPERMIA – A man’s fertility generally relies on the quantity and quality of his sperm. If the number of sperm a man ejaculates is low or if the sperm are of a poor quality, it will be difficult, and sometimes impossible, for him to cause a pregnancy.
- > The concentration of spermatozoa should be at least 15 million per ml.
- > The total volume of semen should be at least 2ml.
- > The total number of spermatozoa in the ejaculate should be at least 30 million.
- > At least 75 per cent of the spermatozoa should be alive (it is normal for up to 25 per cent to be dead).
These formulated Ayurvedic medicines in our Pharmacy have shown 3 to 4 fold increase in sperm count within 2 months of treatment. There is also improvement in seminal volume and Sperm viability. Success rate is 95% in cases of Oligospermia. Patients have to continue this treatment till count reaches up to 40 millions.
Astheospermia - Reduced motility of sperms. Sperm Motility. Motility (the speed and quality of movement) is graded on a 1-4 ranking system. For fertility, motility should be greater than 2.
- Grade 1 sperm wriggle sluggishly and make little forward progress. (Sperm that, in fact, clump together may indicate that antibodies to the sperm are present.)
- Grade 2 sperm move forward, but they are either very slow or do not move in a straight line.
- Grade 3 sperm move in a straight line at a reasonable speed and can home in on an egg accurately.
- Grade 4 sperm are as accurate as Grade 3 sperm, but move at a very rapid speed.
More than 63% of sperm should be motile for normal fertility. These medicines helps to increase Grade 3 and Grade 4 Sperm motility, Results can be observed after 2 months of treatment.
