I am a 36-year-old man. I underwent vasectomy after our first child seven years ago. Now, my wife and I are planning another child. In one of your columns, you had mentioned that reversal is not possible. Kindly advise a successful method for conception.
What was the reason for your vasectomy? Only a few specialists do it correctly and the rate of conception is very low after that. Hence, I consider it to be a permanent method, as it is believed to be around the world. Why not be satisfied with one child? If you are not, then adopt a child.
I am 25 years old. I have been masturbating almost every day for the past 11 years. Recently, I started experiencing hair fall for which I am undergoing treatment. One of my friends told me that semen contains protein and by masturbating regularly, I am actually losing protein from my body which is the prime reason for hair loss. Is this true?
Your friend will not get the Nobel prize for this information. Masturbation has no connection to hairfall or other body ailments.
I Some men exercise regularly, they don’t smoke nor drink alcohol and yet they have low sperm count. Why? Please advise.
It can be due to congenital problems, mumps at adolescence and ahost of other reasons, which an andrologist will detect and hopefully solve.
I am a 26-year-old man and have been married for two years. The tip of my penis has many cuts. For the past two months, it has been hurting a lot during intercourse. Is there any ointment that can help?
Your foreskin may be tight and it may be the cause of the problem. See a surgeon. Meanwhile, apply Cloben G cream.
I am 30 years old. I consume three pegs of whiskey every day. Will this affect my chances of fathering a child?
Yes it can affect sperm formation adversely. Not only that, your habit can also have adverse consequences on your relationship with your partner.
