Lazy drowsy sperms are responsible for the growing infertility rate in India. With a change lifestyle in India and elsewhere, Boule, the 600 million year-old is increasingly producing “lazy drowsy sperms”. “Men with their high alcohol intake and smoking habit are making the sperms drowsy and who just aren’t willing to fertilise,” Dr. Sudip Basu, Chief Invitro Fertilisation (IVP) consultant, AMRI Hospitals said.
Normally, a sperm after being attracted swims towards an egg, hoping to fertilise it. But if the chauvinistic-lazy sperm is drowsy as Dr. Basu says it won’t make its journey to the egg as its life span is limited to three days at the most. “Sperm counts are normal, but still infertile, the reason is the sperms are tired due to high alcohol and nicotine content in the blood and they won’t swim to the nearest egg to fertilise”. In north east, where intake of alcohol and smoking is high the incidence of infertility amongst men is especially rising.
“About 15 to 20 % of the total male population in the region has infertility problems and the number is increasing everyday.” In India, up to one million men suffer from infertility problem mostly due to an altered lifestyle, although medical complications are also responsible. “Infection, tuberculosis, hormonal disorder and other medical complications are also responsible for infertility, but more cases of infertility are reported because of alcohol and tobacco abuse,” Dr. Madhav Das senior infertility consultant of AMRI added.
Physicians here say that the best cure to infertility is maintaining a healthy lifestyle that would allow the 600-year-old seminal dance to
its crescendo naturally.
