Present work carried out to determine the relationship of the concentration of trace metal ions present in seminal plasma with semen parameters and reproductive endocrine function in men in and around Chennai. The semen analysis results revealed that the most affected age group was 31-40 years. The abnormalities of semen were observed high in smokers, alcoholics and non-vegetarians, respectively. Mean value of trace metal ions levels present in seminal plasma were significantly higher in Azoospermia, Asthenozoospermia, Asthenoteratozoospermia, Oligoasthenozoospermia and Oligoasthenoteratozoospermia participants, when compare to Normozoospermia participants and shows adverse effect on male infertility. This study concludes that life style changes and its associated factors have high impact on incidence of male infertility among in and around Chennai population.
