In some male’s, antibody production starts against its own sperms. These antisperm antibodies may then enter the testis & seminal fluid and ‘attack’ the sperms & sperm forming cells. These antisperm antibodies stick the sperms with each other and thus tend to seriously reduce sperm motility, thereby causing infertility. By the use of various treatments, the amount of antibodies may be reduced and fertility restored.
Antisperm antibodies have been found to be present in up to 40% of couples with unexplained infertility, and in 10% of unexplained male infertility. Infertility in a couple can occur if the woman’s cervical mucus provides a hostile environment by producing antibodies to her partner’s sperm. More often, the problem is due to the male partner producing antibodies against his own sperm. Unilateral or bilateral obstruction of the genital tract (either congenital or acquired), epididymitis and varicocele are also sometimes associated with an autoimmune response against spermatozoa.
What are Antisperm Antibodies?
Antisperm antibodies are one immune factor which could be involved in infertility. Antisperm antibodies are cells that fight against normal, healthy sperm. If you have antisperm antibodies, instead of seeing sperm as natural cells, your immune system fights against your sperm and destroys them. This prevents you from producing any viable sperm. Though still to be proven, there is evidence that antibodies against sperm can result in male infertility.
How Do Antisperm Antibodies Affect Fertility?
Antisperm antibodies can really impair the function of healthy sperm. These antibodies attach to your sperm, reducing motility and making it more difficult for sperm to pass through cervical mucus. Antisperm antibodies can also force sperm to clump together, making it difficult for your sperm to fertilize an egg.
Testing for Antisperm Antibodies
There are a variety of tests that can detect the presence of antisperm antibodies in the body:
