Male infertility refers to a male’s inability to cause pregnancy in a fertile female. In humans, it accounts for 40-50% of infertility. It affects approximately 7% of all men. The condition may result from various factors such as low sperm production, production of abnormal sperms, and blockage of the sperm ducts.
I recall that dark day. The day when my heart was ripped out of my body. The emptiness in me. My body, void, where life once grew. In the hospital where the cries of newborn life could be heard, I was walking away with my hands empty. My womb felt bare where I had once felt the joys of my baby’s kicks. I clutch my hand to my belly, still swollen, yet empty.
