Post 53 of 65

Today, along with women men are also pretty interested in their fertility as this aspect points out whether they can have children or not. And since there are many men that have a problem with their fertility that makes them impossible to have kids, there is no wonder why they want to hear more about the things that can lead to this serious health problem. Many more men interests in fertility and infertility issues have gone further and they came to read all sorts of information inclusively medical reports that explain people about the spermatogenesis phases. These facts report about the stages the sperm cells are following in order to mature and turn into the healthy sperm cells that can fertilize female eggs in order to create embryos. If any of these stages is not completed then this will result in the male incapacity to conceive. There are cases when even the entire process of spermatogenesis in not completed and this leads to infertility in men as well. You should know that once getting to infertility men have quite small chances to get back their ability to make a woman get pregnant as their situation can not be compared to the female infertility. Actually, the male infertility coincides to the female menopause and not even with medication this ability can be restored. The only available chance to have kids in this situation is to go for donor sperm in helping women to conceive using the in vitro fertilization method.


So, the first thing you need to know about the spermatogenesis phases is that they divide themselves into three stages. And these are the spermatocytogenesis, the meiosis and the spermiogenesis. Each stage means a step the sperm cells are making towards their maturity. In the first stage in a laboratory you can see that there are about two types (type A and type B) belonging to the spermatogonia that are responsible for creating the initial cells that start to divide and replace themselves in order to start the differential process. In the second stage the primary spermatocytes are created and during the process they divide in order to create many primary spermatocytes. The first meiotic division takes place and right after a second meiotic division is undergone by these primary cells and they turn into secondary spermatocytes and after into spermatids. In the last stage the spermatids metamorphose and turn into the spermatozoa that are getting into the lumen. The spermatogenesis phases are very important in creating male sperm and they also count in ensuring man fertility and when a problem comes there are many chances for this process to not be completed properly.
