Poor sperm quality and male infertility can be caused by many things. Surprisingly, one of the causes of infertility were toothache and mouth infections. Why is that?

Bacteria in semen, known as bacteriospermia, can be present in semen without causing any symptoms. This bacterium can kill sperm and contribute more to the problem of motility (ability to swim) and sperm morphology (shape).

Infections of the teeth and oral cavity may be one cause bacteriospermia. In the journal Andrologia, found that in 36 patients who experienced bacteriospermia resistant to antibiotics, all caused by bacteria in dental and oral cavity in the seminal fluid.

In a study published in Andrologia, fertility specialists have found that the 109 people who visited the infertility clinic had not sterile sperm and 107 of this group have two or more sperm samples containing microorganisms.


"An anaerobic organism was found in 63.3 per cent of the specimens. Spermisidal We isolated the organism, because the presence of microorganisms in semen is associated with infertility. The presence of the organism in their semen may be associated with gynaecologic infection," said fertility specialist in the journal Andrologia.

Sperm is classified as foreign substances on the human immune system, so that the testis is immune sites to allow sperm to live.

Because of this emphasis, the testicles may be more susceptible to bacterial infections and the only guy with good immune function which will still be able to produce good quality sperm.

Not only in men, according to the American Academy of Periodontology, women with the disease
gum is more likely to have babies with low birth weight and prematurity.

Pregnant women who have periodontal disease were seven times more likely to have babies born too early and too small. This is due to periodontal disease triggers increased levels of biological fluids that induce labor.

Bacteria teeth can be found in amniotic fluid. These bacteria may have the ability to cause infection in the unborn baby and has been shown to trigger early labor.

Of the 26 women pregnant with the threat of preterm labor, 8 of them had gingivitis and 12 have the disease
chronic periodontal. 8 of the patients had bacterial P. gingivalis that has invaded the amniotic cavity.
