Effects of Leukocytospermia

Among the increasing number of partners experiencing fertility challenges, it has been estimated that the male factor is solely responsible for 30% of the failed fertilization rates [26] . Symptomatic and asymptomatic urinary tract infections which produce leukocytes is a condition frequently observed in infertility clinics [27, 28]. This negative effect on the male's fertilizing potential can be a result of the direct correlation which is found between increased concentrations of leukocytes and chromatin alterations and morphological abnormalities [6] .
