Abstract

The reasons for systematic microbial examinations of human ejaculates are discussed. The exact establishment of an association between bacteria isolated from human ejaculates and infertility is very difficult. There are several hints for such an association in the case of different micoplasmas though there is no clear-cut evidence. A physical association between these microorganisms and spermatozoa, which was recently observed, possibly could help to facilitate the diagnosis.
