Low sperm count manifests as less than normal sperm levels in the semen ejaculated during orgasm. Sperm count is considered below normal when there are less than 15 million sperms per milliliter of semen. Low sperm count can hinder chances of pregnancy as the sperm is unable to fertilize the egg of the female partner for conceiving a zygote. Yet, in many cases, men with low sperm count successfully produce a child. The biggest symptom of low sperm count is the inability to initiate pregnancy and often has no other visible signs. In certain cases, however, underlying conditions (inherited chromosomal abnormality, hormonal imbalances, dilated testicular veins or blockage in sperm transport) lead to other symptoms. These include sexual problems (reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction), pain, lump or swelling in the testicle area and reduced body or facial hair (along with other symptoms of hormonal or chromosome abnormalities).
