Just as in women, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) in men will also cause changes in his reproductive system. For this reason, it is necessary for both men and women to use a condom as a method of contraception to avoid any STD.
The possible consequences of an STD in men are listed below:
- Orchitis or inflammation of the testicles.
- Spermatogenesis alteration or sperm formation
- Sperm DNA fragmentation.
- Formation of anti-sperm antibodies and sperm agglutination.
These are some of the effects of STDs on male fertility, but they can also cause prostatitis, epidimitis, obstruction of the seminal ducts, altered sperm motility, etc.
