After I made a little research, I discovered that some infections can lead to infertility both in males and females. However, in this article, I will be talking about one major reason for infertility in men and how to prevent it.
A study, in collaboration with Monash IVF Group, Hudson Institute of Medical Research, Monash Health, and Queensland Fertility Group, has been published in the journal Human Reproduction, reveal that a bacteria known as Chlamydia trachomatis, can be responsible for infertility in men.
In the study, the blood of 12 out of 18 donors of the fresh testicular biopsies, indicated that the men were exposed to the bacteria. Although, it is recorded that this infection most times shows no symptoms but there can be a pain in the eyes, lower abdomen, pelvis, testicle, or vagina. Pain can also occur during intercourse, urination, and abnormal discharge.

According to the Monash Health Anatomical Pathological Department, it was found out that in about 95 men, 43.5 percent of Chlamydia was found in their testicular biopsies. While about 16.7 percent of chlamydia was found in fresh testicular biopsies in 3 of 18 men. Please note that this was obtained during patient sperm recovery.
Also, according to animal studies, it was shown that chlamydia infection in male mice establishes a chronic infection in the testes that significantly impairs normal sperm development. However, understanding a cause is the first step that could help solve a particular problem.
Chlamydia infection in men needs more investigation so that there can be a perfect solution. Regardless, antibiotic therapy can be administered to the affected patient and also the sexual partners of patients. Finally, screening for other common sexually transmitted infections should also be done.
