what are the infertility problems in obese men?

An obese male who has come to the infertility clinic has a higher chance of having an abnormal semen analysis, be it in terms of count, motility, or quality when compared to men who have a normal BMI. The 2nd aspect is these men who are obese have a higher chance of diabetes and male diabetes also affects sperm quality and sperm function. So a man with obesity should reduce weight before planning pregnancy so that the need for multiple interventions will also reduce. The chances of having repeated cycle failures will be less if their obesity is also given proper attention. There will be a quicker chance of pregnancy with lesser treatment cycles.
