"Low sperm count means that the fluid (semen) you ejaculate during an orgasm contains fewer sperm than normal. A low sperm count is also called oligospermia (ol-ih-go-SPUR-me-uh). A complete absence of sperm is called azoospermia. Your sperm count is considered lower than normal if you have fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen."
"In the past few decades, low sperm count in men in the Western world has been increasing steadily. Or to use a proper analogy, decreasing steadily, so that ""low sperm count"" is quite a normal phrase these days. Fact: The number of of sperm per milliliter (ml) has dropped from 100 million/ml to around half of that, at between 50 and 60 million/ml (5ml = 1teaspoon).

The study, based on sperm samples from 26,600 healthy men, reports a substantial decline in average sperm counts over 17 years, from 73.6m to 49.9m per millilitre, between 1989 and 2005. The reality of falling sperm counts has been hard to confirm for several reasons.
