Sperm quality is a problem that is often overlooked, yet it plays an equally important role in IVF success rates.
Almost a third of fertility problems can be attributed to male factor, with common causes ranging from sperm quality and quantity to problems relating to the delivery of the sperm.
Recent research suggests the COVID virus is having a detrimental impact on sperm production and sperm quality.
Further research from the University of Georgia has revealed that in severe cases of men infected with COVID-19, testicular function may be impaired, therefore resulting in a reduction of male fertility.
Preliminary findings suggest that COVID-19 vaccines do not impact the health or reproductive potential of sperm.
