Circumcision May Improve Men’s Fertility Indirectly

Circumcision does not affect fertility. However, circumcision can help treat penile problems that can affect male fertility. Phimosis and balanitis are two of the most common penile problems causing infertility. Balanitis and phimosis are found in 3.5 percent of uncircumcised men. If you suffer from these problems as an adult, we suggest you visit the clinic for adult circumcision in melbourne.

Phimosis is a problem that occurs when the foreskin of the penis cannot be pulled down and is “stuck” in the back of the head of the penis when it is erect because it is too tight. Phimosis can cause a man to become infertile because the skin of the foreskin that is too tight can prevent sperm cells from leaving during ejaculation to enter the vagina.

Meanwhile, balanitis is a swelling of the skin of the foreskin and head of the penis. Balanitis causes the penis to feel itchy, red, and inflamed. Inflammation of the foreskin of the penis can indirectly block the release of semen and sperm, leading to infertility problems.

A circumcision procedure that involves removing the foreskin of the penis can solve both problems of the penis.

Although circumcision can improve penile skin problems, so far there is no scientific evidence that a circumcised penis will increase fertility. Not being circumcised does not directly affect your fertility.

The reason is, the main thing that determines the fertility of a man is the production of quality sperm. Quality sperm must fulfill these three important factors: number, shape, and agile movement. If there is only one sperm abnormality from these three factors, the risk of infertility can increase. In general, a healthy lifestyle and diet are two factors that play an important role in maintaining sperm health and male fertility.

Also, the role of penis hygiene is no less important for maintaining male fertility. The skin of the foreskin can collect dirt. If left untreated, dirt will accumulate and are susceptible to causing infection in the male reproductive organs. This can mediate the spread of the infection to your female partner that can interfere with female fertility.

After removing the foreskin after circumcision, it can make it easier for you to clean the penis. Indirectly, this can increase the fertility of you and your partner because you avoid the risk of infection.
