What causes necrospermia?

By Emilio Gómez Sánchez.
Last Update: 10/08/2018

The term necrospermia refers to a sperm disorder where 85 percent of sperm present in the ejaculate are dead.

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

  • Alcohol or street drug consumption
  • Unbalanced diet
  • Radiotherapy or chemotherapy
  • Genitourinary infections
  • Hormonal disorders

In these cases, curing necrospermia is complicated, as well as increasing sperm vitality. In short, it is likely that the affected man has to turn to assisted procreating to have children.
