How Does Epididymitis Kill Your Sperm?

Date:2020-08-31 click:0

Epididymitis is the inflammation that occurs in epididymis. Many adult males work too hard, which lets their resistance decline over time. The bacteria in the urine, such as escherichia coli or staphylococcus, will enter the epididymis along with the vascularity, and lead to epididymitis, causing pain, fever and infertility problems. 
Epididymitis is destructive to the sperm, how does it do it?
1. Reduce the sperm motility
When the epididymis is infected by the pathogens, some of them (such as escherichia coli) can directly damage the sperm in the epididymis, inhibit the mobility of sperm or make sperm agglutinate. Besides, some pathogens (such as mycoplasma and chlamydia) are attached to the surface of sperm, making it less active or even lost. 
The toxin produced by the pathogen will also poison the naturally fragile sperm, making its mortality greatly increased. At the same time, white blood cells, macrophages and other cells may accidentally injure or kill the sperm when eliminating pathogens .
2.Block the sperm's path
If epididymitis is caused by pathogen infection such as gonococcus and mycobacterium tuberculosis, it will trigger an inflammatory reaction and damage the sperm. It can easily cause constriction or blockage of the epididymal lumen, leading to incomplete or complete vas deferens obstruction near the epididymis. 
This is an irreversible epididymitis sequela, which means the sperm is trapped in the epididymis and can't get out, resulting in obstructive oligospermia or azoospermia.
3. Prevent the sperm from being fed
Epididymis consists of more than a dozen testicular output tubules that converge on the posterior upper part of the testis and then coil backwards and downwards to the lower pole of the testis. After two weeks of careful cultivation in the epididymis, the sperm can fully mature, which can recognize the zona pellucida of the egg and the ability to fertilize with it. If there is a problem with the epididymis, the sperm feeding will be interrupted, and its development will be affected.
Do not underestimate the epididymitis. If you do not get timely treatment, it will cause testicular swelling, pain and discomfort, as well as affect your daily life and work. As for epididymitis treatment, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a better choice for you with powerful bactericidal properties. 
It can also cure male urogenital system diseases caused by all kinds of bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma and chlamydia, and effectively treat many inflammations, including prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, cystitis, orchitis and so on.
In addition, we suggest that you should be able to lie down or sit instead of standing. Get as much bed rest as you can, and avoid heavy manual labor. If the condition is not getting better, or even worse, you should go to the hospital in time.
