How can seminal vesiculitis lead to infertility?
1. Seminal vesiculitis can make semen more viscous. When a man suffer from seminal vesiculitis, his seminal plasma contains bacteria and a mass of leucocyte or even sanies. The sharp increased consistency obstracts process of semen liquefaction, which affect sperm motility. In fact, this condition is related to the decreased liquid enzyme. 
2. It directly causes abnormal semen quantity. When prostate is invloved in seminal vesiculitis, secretory volume of seminal plasma reduces definitely, which is not benefit to sperm survival. However, when the patient has nonbacterial prostatitis, secretory volume of seminal plasma sometimes will increases, which means less sperm in unit volume. As we know, diluted sperm is not propitious for fertilization. 
3. It leads to semen composition changes. In normal seminal plasma, there is certain amounts of nutrient content to provide for sperm and its motility, and also some amounts of lactic acid. If seminal vesicle and prostate are infected, there will be bacteria in seminal plasma, plus, these acid substances can aggravate toxin. Metabolite of bacteria will be discharge in seminal plasma. Apart from that, bacteria can devour nutrition from seminal plasma and rapine oxygen. 
4. Seminal vesiculitis can cause semen Ph decrease. Normal semen Ph is 7.2 to 8.9, In this circumstances, sperm feels well. When semen contains bacterias or other pathoigens, acid materials can kill sperm.
