What causes necrospermia?

By Emilio Gómez Sánchez B.Sc., Ph.D. (senior embryologist on Next Fertility Murcia).
Last Update: 07/15/2022

The term necrospermia refers to a sperm disorder where more than 58% percent of sperm present in the ejaculate are dead.

The factors leading to necrospermia are as yet unclear, but the most common include:

  • Habitual use of alcohol or street drugs
  • Poor, unhealthy diet
  • Radiotherapy or chemotherapy
  • Genitourinary infections
  • Hormonal disorders

In these cases, reversing necrospermia and increasing sperm vitality is complicated. As such, it is likely that the affected man will have to turn to assisted reproductive techniques to have children.
