If you have been trying for a child with your partner for a while now and the doctors have determined that the reason for the struggle is your low sperm count, it can make you feel quite hopeless and heart-broken.

Having a low sperm count is one of the main reasons for infertility in men. When a man does not produce the optimum number of sperms required, then it will be harder for his partner to conceive.

Recent statistics show that about 10%-20% of the males have a low sperm count, leading to infertility.

A man's sperm count is said to be low if the number of sperms are lesser than 15 million per mL of semen.

A low sperm count can be caused by various reasons such as hormonal abnormalities, unhealthy lifestyle, exposure to certain drugs and chemicals, sexually transmitted diseases, etc.

Infertility in men, caused by a low sperm count, can hamper the self-confidence of a man and can also result in a great disappointment when he is unable to be a father.
