Disease or trauma to the testicles - Causes of Male Infertility

An injury or disease to the testicles can reduce their function and so impact upon fertility. For example, a blow received playing sport or as a result of a fight.

This can affect the blood supply to the testicles which damages the ability produce sperm.

Viral infections such as orchitis (painful swelling of the testicles) can also mean a failure to produce sperm.

Surgery can be carried out to treat any of these but it is not a guarantee of fertility.
