Can infertility in males be temporary?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).

Yes, there are cases in which the male goes through periods of stress or anxiety that can cause temporary infertility. The same happens with flu-like processes with fever, since the increase in body temperature affects the production of spermatozoa. In these cases, fertility can recover after 3 months once the stage that causes infertility is over. This is because a complete process of spermatogenesis lasts 3 months.
