In India according to WHO the overall prevalence of primary infertility ranges between 3.9% and 16.8%. A recent report on the status of infertility in India, states that nearly 50% of infertility is related to reproductive anomalies or disorders in the male. ‘Male factor’ infertility is seen as an alteration in sperm concentration and/or motility and/or morphology in at least one sample of two sperm analyses. The most significant of these are a low sperm concentration (oligozoospermia), poor sperm motility (asthenozoospermia), and abnormal sperm morphology (teratozoospermia).
