2. retention

3. Immunologic

In addition, lead to infertility, many reasons, more detailed in the article «Erectile dysfunction».

Secretory form of male sterility

When trauma happens contact of the two systems, and the immunity of the body begins to take testicles as an alien entity. Antibodies can be shaped directly to spermatozoon.

The treatment of male sterility

First and foremost, this is the removal of the causes that led to the development of infertility - the removal of inflammation in the circumcision operation at the dropsy testicle, varicolored.
