Fertility Problems

What are fertility problems?

Image result for infertility africaInfertility or subfertility is the condition in which a couple fail to achieve pregnancy after at least one year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. Both partners in a relationship contribute to potential fertility. Both may be sub-fertile, and hyper-fertility in one may mask sub-fertility in the other.

For pregnancy to be achieved, several things need to happen at the right time.

• The woman has to produce an egg

• The man has to produce healthy sperm

• The egg has to travel from the woman’s ovary into the fallopian tube

• The couple have to have sex around the time the egg is released

• The sperm have to swim up the vagina and womb (uterus) into the fallopian tube towards the egg.

• The egg has to be fertilised by the man’s sperm

• The fertilised egg has to implant itself in the woman’s womb.

What causes them?

The causes of fertility problems are classified based on individual factors necessary for successful reproduction. They are as follows:

  • Male factors (30-40%)
  • Female factors (30-40%)
  • Combined male and female factors (10-15%)
  • Unexplained causes (5-10%) when the doctor cannot find any cause.

Male factor infertility could be due to any of the following:

  • Hormonal problems.
  • Disorders with the anatomy: The vas deferens which conducts sperm from the testes where they are produced to the outside may be absence from birth or blocked.
  • Abnormal sperm production: Due to genetic abnormalities, undescended testes, previous mumps infection in childhood and exposure to radiations.
  • Abnormal sperm motility.
  • Sexual dysfunction: Retrograde (backward) ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, decreased libido.

Put an end to the disappointment frustration and embarrassment of… Erectile Dysfunction Have Sex Like You are 18 Years Old Again! Have a natural powerfully stiff penis. Eject volumes of semen! Do it again and again night after night! Never make another excuse for not being able to get it up! Have you lost that special “showing” that you had as a young man? Do you long for the good old days in college when you would have to cover your erection with a book binder the minute you stood up from a desk because it was so large and rude looking? Have you practically given up sex because you can‘t get the same hard on that you used to and you are sick of disappointed woman smiling wanly and giving you comforting little pats on the back in bed? In fact is there anything more distressing than that little pat on the back that says “I know you tried …I know you love me” while you tell her things like – “This has never happened to me before…just this one time …usually I can go and go and go.” Or how about – “It‘s not you. It‘s me. HONESTLY! I am very attracted to you. Also does your loss of a firm erection coincide with a concern about being less virile and fertile than you once were. Do you feel that your loss of sperm volume is sign from Mother Nature indicating possible premature aging? If all these things are a concern when it comes time to get an erection and you want to restore your virility with the expense of prescription pills then keep on reading! For those of you who don‘t have a clue that simply means that you can‘t get it up or that your penis remains flaccid or turgid during sex. Some men don‘t get any kind of erection at all and end up in bed with their lovers with genitals that look like they have just spent an hour in a freezing cold pool of water. So…if you do suffer from a limp penis you are not alone. The number of men suffering from this is so massive that it is practically a plague. Over thirty million men in the U.S. suffer from this embarrassing condition called Erectile Dysfunction or ED. So how did I come to write a book about this somewhat personal if not downright taboo topic? I‘ll Never Forget My First Episode of ED I used to pride myself on my stamina and the ability to sexually satisfy the women in my life. I was really sexy in bed. Not that I was overly large or anything but I was the Energizer Bunny who could last a very long time. Then one night it happened. I couldn‘t get it up! Everything I had ever believed about myself sexually suddenly went out the window. Everything that I thought was for sure about my male prowess was now doubtful. I felt like my life was over – like my masculinity had been ripped out of my body. The problem is that I really loved the girl that this happened to with me. I had sex with this girl before. I wanted to please her. I wanted to make love to her like a crazed weasel. I wanted to make love to her like I was an aroused teenage boy at a drive in. Unfortunately I had given her every reason to expect my usual porn star style of making love and then she was absolutely mortified when I was unable to perform. I was so embarrassed it. I felt like a cartoon character I was apologizing so much. And I could see the disappointment and a tinge of pity glistening in her beautiful eyes. Perhaps the most embarrassing part was the way she kept trying to console me. No matter how I tried to convince her that it was not so she seemed convinced that she was somehow responsible for being unable to follow through. That she was not a good enough lover somehow. Then I also was privy to the worst experience that any man could ever have. After having gone soft on her once she then waited almost an hour and then tried to arouse me again. All she got was a limp penis and more excuses. I felt just awful. I told myself later that I had “performance anxiety” that I was just nervous and that I had too much to drink. But somehow I could not shake the feeling that I had somehow “broken” my penis for good. That it would never work again. Perhaps you can relate to how awful it is to tell a girl you are a tiger in bed and then turn into a big soft cuddly pussy that is only good for being patted and not much else. The worst thing is that she decided to chalk it up to me having a martini or two at dinner and gave me a rain check and come back for a second dose of failed masculinity. On our second date guess what happened? My penis went flaccid again. It was very very VERY embarrassing Once again I had to reassure her that she was really sexy that she turned me on and that my failure to get it up was not her fault at all. However he looks on her face said it all …. I felt my manhood and the girl I wanted slowly drifting away from me. I had anxieties about her finding a younger more fit individual to satisfy her. It seemed like I was banished to the back of the hive with the rest of the old drones. I felt absolutely desperate to find pollution so I finally broke down and bought the little blue magic bullets. You know Cialis. Some people take Viagra instead. Both work great. In fact in my eBook Dealing with Impotency I go to great lengths to explain how these pills works and in what situations they work best. Impotence medication is not for everyone. I am not exactly for it but I am not against it either. The upshot –Viagra and Cialis work. However are they the best solution possible for erectile dysfunction? You might be thinking – well if it ain‘t broke why fix it? The plain fact is that these pills got my penis working like a super hero‘s but other parts of me weren‘t meshing with the sexual power that comes with this drug. The problem with these pills is that they worked just a little too efficiently. Sure my girlfriend was impressed by my new sexual prowess and yes she was gratified to know that she could turn me on. However I started to ask myself – is it really me turning her on? First of all there was nothing natural or spontaneous about taking these pills. I was always concerned about what time I was going to take my “erectile dysfunction medication.” My sex life was focused all around the pills and waiting around an hour or so before sex so they would work. Another worry was my dependency on the things. I felt like I was becoming a sex junky waiting for my next fix of drugs followed by sex. The Viagra and Cialis works but – I Wanted a Real Solution – One That Made Me Feel Like Myself Again

Female factor infertility could be caused by:
  • Problems with egg production.
  • Infections like pelvic inflammatory disease, appendicitis, and infections following operations.
  • Uterine problems such as formation of adhesions, uterine fibroids (especially the large ones), and structural abnormalities from birth.
  • Problems with the cervix, such as chronic cervical infections and damage from surgical treatment.

It is now thought that unexplained infertility is probably caused by a small problem in each partner. On their own the problems wouldn’t matter. But if both partners have something slightly wrong it affects the chance of getting pregnant.

How is the cause found out?

When there is difficulty in making babies, it helps to see the doctor first, both partners preferably. The doctor will ask a number of questions and perform a physical examination on both partners. Relevant tests may also be requested to help them find out what is causing the sub-fertility.

Tests for fertility problems

For men, the semen will be analysed to see if the count is normal and if the sperm look healthy enough to fertilise an egg.

For women, there will be a blood test to find out if she’s ovulating normally and check her hormone levels.

If the tests are normal, some further tests can be run on the woman. These include:

  • More detailed hormone tests
  • An x-ray test that shows the inside of a woman’s womb and fallopian tubes to check for blockages or any abnormalities.
  • An ultrasound test to show images of the womb and fallopian tubes for the same purpose as the x-ray test. It can also be used to watch the growth of eggs in the ovaries.
  • In order to have a better view, the doctor may do a laparoscopy. This involves inserting a tube with a camera on the end through a small opening in the abdomen. He can also take tissue samples and remove growths.

What treatments work?

If the tests show a clear reason for the fertility problems, the doctor should be able to decide which fertility treatment may offer the best chance of getting pregnant. However, treatment may not work for every people and doesn’t reduce the chance of a miscarriage.

Medicines to stimulate the ovaries

Women whose infertility is caused by problems with ovulation are usually offered drugs like Clomifene to encourage ovulation as their first option. It is quite effective and about three times as many women get pregnant as would have done without treatment.

Side effects are not serious and don’t usually require treatment. There is a higher chance of having multiple pregnancies (twins or triplets) with this treatment. This happens because clomifene can make your ovaries release more than one egg at a time. There are some other types of drugs the doctor can suggest if this doesn’t work.

Hormone injections

Doctors often suggest hormone injections for women with ovulation problems if drug treatment fails or when a hormonal insufficiency is responsible for the sub-fertility.

Hormone injections can cause side effects, most of which a mild. Less commonly serious ones such as kidney and liver problems may occur.

As with clomifene, taking hormone injections may make you more likely to have multiple pregnancies.

IVF and other assisted conception treatments

IVF is the most common form of assisted conception fertility treatment used for various types of fertility problems. It is quite effective but demanding, both physically and emotionally, with significant side effects.

In IVF the man’s sperm is mixed with the woman’s eggs in a laboratory. The sperm are allowed to fertilise the eggs. The product is put back into the woman’s womb so that they can grow.

Children born through IVF are more likely to be born premature and to have a low birth weight. But this is probably due to the greater number of multiple pregnancies and by the older age of women having IVF.

Other assisted conception treatments include:

ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) where a healthy sperm from the man is injected directly into the woman’s egg to fertilise it, and the embryo put back into the woman’s womb, as with IVF.

There is some evidence that children born through ICSI are more likely to have serious physical and mental problems.

GIFT (gamete intrafallopian transfer) where the egg-and-sperm mix is put into one of the woman’s fallopian tubes instead of waiting for them to fertilise in the laboratory.

The sperm fertilises the egg naturally in the woman’s fallopian tube.

Donated eggs or sperm can also be used to achieve assisted conception.

Surgery

Surgery is only an option when other treatments have failed or if surgery will increase the chances that other treatments will work. They include:

  • Surgery for ovulation problems
  • Surgery for blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
  • Surgery for problems linked to endometriosis. In endometriosis, cells from the lining of the womb (the endometrium) grow outside their natural confines. The damaged disuse that may be preventing pregnancy is removed.

As with all types of surgery, these procedures carry risks like excessive bleeding and infections.

In the absence of an obvious reason for the sub-fertility, a further trial of one year may be advised. After then, an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) may be offered depending on the doctor’s discretion. The older a woman gets, the less likely IVF is to be successful.

It might help to talk with an infertility counsellor. They can help you understand your options and your chances of success.

Far too many people struggle to fall pregnant and conceive a child naturally. This generally drives most people to visit a doctor or specialist to find out why they have so much trouble conceiving and giving birth to healthy, happy babies. In most cases, they’re given a diagnosis of infertility. Unfortunately, there are many different reasons for infertility, so this doesn’t always help. It’s known that ovarian cysts, PCOS and endometriosis can affect your fertility rate, as can a low sperm count. Some people are affected by other hormonal issues or more complicated problems, such as blocked or obstructed fallopian tubes. Even with all the advances made by medical science, there still remains a possibility that doctors simply can’t find a cause for some peoples’ infertility problems. Yet what most people forget is that traditional, natural remedies often have a far greater success rate than expensive, often painful medical treatments. Despite a higher success rate, many people choose to ignore natural treatments and solutions that really could prepare your body to conceive naturally, even after being told that you’re infertile by a medical specialist. In fact, it’s been proven that some fertility treatments prescribed by fertility specialists can increase the risk of contracting ovarian cancer, yet women every day still opt to take expensive medications rather than consider some of the more healthy options of trying a holistic approach. What’s more, many of the medical treatments, surgeries and pharmaceutical drugs for infertility don’t actually treat the base cause of the problem. Instead, they treat the symptom and attempt to remove it that way. This can sometimes cause more problems than you started with. This eBook will look at some reasons for infertility and how using a natural, holistic approach to reversing your infertility problems can greatly improve your chances of conceiving a child of your own without surgery and without drugs. Are you ready to change your life and become a happy parent? Then get this eBook.

Things you can do yourselves

There are things you can do to improve your chances of getting pregnant,

whether or not you choose to have treatment:

  • Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight or underweight can reduce your chances of getting pregnant.
  • No smoking. The chances of sub-fertility and miscarriages are higher when you smoke.
  • Have sex regularly (about 2 to 3 times weekly) so you don’t miss the fertile period.

What will happen?

How couples decide to go about their fertility problems will depend on how important it is for them to have a child using their own eggs and sperm. Even without treatment, some couples go on to conceive.
