Why is oligozoospermia a cause of infertility?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 12/21/2021

Men with alterations in seminal parameters suffer from male infertility due to the inability to conceive.

In the case of oligozoospermia, as there is a lower number of sperm in the ejaculate, there is less chance that these can ascend through the female reproductive tract to the uterus and fallopian tubes, and reach the egg to achieve a natural pregnancy.
