Well, sperm count implies the number of sperm cells present in your semen. It has nothing to do with how well you perform in bed and how firm your erections are.

But how to know sperm count without test? You might need to consult a doctor to know about the actual count. Also, here are some signs your sperm count is low.


Hormonal Issues

Hormonal imbalances could also be the reason behind low sperm count. In some men, this manifests as lack of facial hair. Obesity could cause a dip in testosterone levels. At the same time, very low body weight can disturb hormonal balance. In the long run, hormonal issues could affect sperm count.

Deep Voice

A survey claims that men who have deep voices tend to have higher chances of having low sperm count. Generally, women get attracted to guys who have a deep manly voice.

Actually, such voices indicate good testosterone levels but a voice which is too deep could indicate low sperm count too. But don't jump into conclusions. Take the doctor's opinion.


Men who are unable to develop muscle may also have higher chances of suffering low sperm count.

Fat is adipose tissue. Too much of fat can transform into estrogen. And when estrogen levels raise, your sperm count may get affected.

T Levels

In some men, sperm count may dip if testosterone levels dip. Also, low muscle mass can hit your testosterone levels. Testosterone dictates a man's masculine looks as well as reproductive function. When T levels dip due to any reason, libido and sperm count may soon dip.

Extreme Fatigue

If you feel tired and lack the energy levels or the zeal to even get up and do something, it could be one sign that your T levels are low and that could also indicate low sperm count.
