No Sperm? Epididymitis Is the Main Reason

The epididymis is a vital reproductive organ, and its contribution to fertility is no less than the other reproductive organs, such as testicles and vas deferens. Two testicles grow in the male scrotum; apart from these two testicles, there is also two epididymides. The epididymis is a pair of long, thin, and flat organs tied to the spermatic cord's lower end together with the testicles. The epididymis is integral to sperm development and maturation and is a necessary route for sperm to pass through.

Epididymitis is mainly seen in young and middle-aged men in clinical practice. The retrograde infection of pathogenic bacteria to the epididymal tissue via the vas deferens causes infectious disease changes in the epididymal tissue. Epididymitis is a common male disease, and its incidence is still rising in recent years. When the body's resistance decreases for various reasons, pathogenic bacteria can seize the opportunity to cause epididymitis.
How does epididymitis hurt sperms?
Epididymitis will cut off the supply of nutrients needed by sperm, reduce the mobility of sperm, and block the passage of sperm, causing a severe impact on the quality and activity of sperm, thus leading to infertility.
First of all, epididymitis can lead to a decrease in sperm motility and cause weak spermatozoa.
Epididymitis causes a noticeable reduction in the secret of various substances that nourish sperm from the epididymis, causing a significant weakness in the different abilities sperm should acquire in the epididymis. This eventually leads to a significantly higher rate of inactive sperm or dead sperm in the discharged semen. Even for motile sperm, their motility is weakened, leading to weak spermatozoa or dead spermatozoa.
Secondly, pathogens can directly adsorb on the surface of sperm or cause sperm agglutination to reduce their motility.

The produced toxins can also poison the sperm. At the same time, when eliminating pathogens, the organism may also indiscriminately and mistakenly injure or kill sperm, causing a decrease in sperm motility and an increase in dead sperm, resulting in an increase in the rate of deformed sperm and a decline in the number of sperm, etc.
Finally, epididymitis can cause obstructive oligospermia or obstructive azoospermia.
If epididymitis is caused by pathogens such as gonococcus and mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, it will damage sperms by an inflammatory reaction and easily cause epididymitis after-effects that are difficult to reverse. Sperms are blocked in the epididymal duct and cannot get out, so they can only be trapped slowly or left to slaughter, thus causing obstructive oligospermia or azoospermia.
Epididymitis is a common cause of male infertility and is usually challenging to detect because there are no uncomfortable symptoms. Therefore, patients with epididymitis should go to a professional doctor promptly and use antibiotics with antioxidant drugs or TCM Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for treatment.
In addition to effective treatment in hospitals, it is also essential for patients with epididymitis to live a healthy lifestyle.
Practice good hygiene habits to avoid male genitourinary infections that may trigger male epididymitis. Avoid stimulating foods such as tobacco, alcohol, and spicy foods, as these may increase the congestion of the epididymis and aggravate the inflammatory reaction. Pay attention to an appropriate diet, drink water frequently, and keep your bowels open. A healthy and scientific sex life also helps men to prevent epididymitis. Experts remind men to pay attention to regular and reasonable sex life.
