Male contraception may be a possibility thanks in part to a discovery of a new key reproductive gene critical for production of healthy sperm, suggests Scottish scientists credited with the discovery.
A new type of male contraceptive could be created thanks to the discovery of a key gene essential for sperm development. This could lead to alternatives to the conventional male contraceptives which rely on the production of hormones, such as testerone.
The diagnosis of male fertility is usually performed through the observation of the sperm in the microscope.
Scientists at the Universities of Birmingham and Warwick have shed new light on how sperm navigate the female reproductive tract, 'crawling' along the channel walls and swimming around corners; with frequent collisions.

Treatments for childhood cancers are increasingly successful with cure rates approaching 80%, but success often comes with a downside for the surviving men: the cancer treatments they received as boys can leave them sterile as adults.
Men's diets, in particular the amount and type of different fats they eat, could be associated with their semen quality.

It had long been assumed that the human sperm cell’s mission in life ended once it had transferred its freight of parental DNA to the egg.
According to a 2003 study by German and American scientists, a component of the Lily of the Valley scent known as Bourgeonal alters the calcium balance of human sperm and attracts the sperm.
