Editorial Note on Infertility caused by the male-factor.

Couple infertility is a major public health issue that poses a science, medical, and financial challenge. The psychological effect of the whole process, however, should not be overlooked. According to studies, 15% of couples have difficulty reproducing, with 2/3 of the cases involving an exclusive or related male cause, and the prevalence of male sterility is estimated to be 10%. Occlusion of the genital tract, erection or ejaculation issues, endocrine problems (hypogonadotropic hypogonadism), abnormalities in spermatogenesis, and impaired function of mature spermatozoa are all possible causes of male infertility. The prognosis has been thrown off by recent developments in assisted reproductive technology, such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Men who were once thought to be forever sterile can now have children, increasing the possibility of genetic defects causing their infertility being passed on to future generations.
