In previous blog posts we have discussed that there are many possible reasons why the baby’s arrival could be delayed. One of the causes could be due to alterations in the sperm, whose importance in the fertilization process is vital because it is the male sexual cell that unites with the female egg to achieve sexual reproduction.
To achieve a pregnancy, it is important that the spermatozoa have an adequate structure, complete DNA and rapid movement to arrive intact on their way to the egg.
Asthenozoospermia or asthenospermia is a male infertility cause. It consists of an alteration in semen quality caused by a decrease in the percentage of mobile sperm, so they cannot reach the egg and fertilize it. A man is considered to be affected with this condition when he has at least 60% immotile sperm.
On many occasions, asthenozoospermia is accompanied by oligospermia, that is, a low concentration of sperm in the semen that is ejaculated.

Asthenozoospermia does not cause clinical manifestations, so affected men can have normal sexual relations and only see their condition reflected when trying to get pregnant.
The treatment of asthenozoospermia depends on its severity. In mild cases, the specialist may recommend changes in lifestyle such as avoiding exposure to toxins, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, consuming a balanced diet and vitamin supplements with zinc and antioxidants to stimulate sperm mobility.
Pharmacological treatment is recommended in cases of asthenozoospermia caused by sperm factors.
However, in severe cases of asthenozoospermia, the most viable option is to resort to assisted reproduction solutions to achieve the long awaited pregnancy.
