Reproductive function in young men in Latvia

Investigation of the reproductive function of young men in Latvia was performed. We determined physical appearance, testis volume measured by orchidometer, semen quality (sperm concentration, motility and morphology) and reproductive hormone levels in the blood of 300 military conscripts.

Sperm count of < 20 mln/ml was detected in 11 percent of young Latvian men.

Testis volume by orchidometer was about 23 ml, and sperm concentration was about 83 mln/ml, while sperm volume was around 3,4 ml. These findings are related with information on lifestyle, including information of ante-natal and childhood exposure, and previous or current diseases.These data will be compared with findings within the European Union countries. Additional information is provided from the Baltic area to the centralized European database on male reproductive health.
