Molecular control of the implantation window. (1/2415)

Human endometrium is the end organ of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis. Therefore, endometrium is susceptible to changes in the cases of infertility that originate from disturbances in the normal functioning of this axis. In addition, some cases of unexplained infertility may be due to altered endometrial function. This disturbed endometrial function may originate from lesions in the molecular repertoire that are crucial to implantation. Human endometrium becomes receptive to implantation by the blastocyst within a defined period during the menstrual cycle. The duration of this so-called 'endometrial receptivity' or 'implantation' period seems to span from few days after ovulation to several days prior to menstruation. Successful implantation results from a co-ordinated series of events that would allow establishment of a timely dialogue between a receptive endometrium and an intrusive blastocyst. The members of the molecular repertoire that make endometrium receptive to implantation are gradually being recognized. Among these are the cytokines, integrins, heat shock proteins, tastin and trophinin. In addition, the expression of a second set of genes including tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and ebaf, may be the appropriate signal for the closure of the 'implantation window', for making the endometrium refractory to implantation and for preparing it for the menstrual shedding.  (+info)

The ultrastructure of fibromyomatous myometrium and its relationship to infertility. (2/2415)

The aim of this study was to determine whether the ultrastructure of the non-neoplastic myometrial portion (host myometrium) of fibromyomatous uteri is normal or abnormal when compared to that of fibromyomata and normal myometria. Myometrial samples from 23 normal and 54 fibromyomatous uteri were examined at the ultrastructural level using standard electron microscopy techniques. Ultrastructural abnormalities of certain cellular organelles were noted in myocytes of fibromyomata but not in those of normal or host myometria. The sarcolemmal dense bands of host myometrial myocytes were of significantly greater length than those of normal myometria, but not significantly different to those of fibromyomata. Consequently, the numbers of caveolae in host myometria and fibromyomata are conceivably decreased in comparison to normal myometria. Host myometria can be, therefore, considered to be structurally abnormal. The specific structural abnormality noted may affect calcium metabolism in these tissues by causing a decrease in the cellular calcium extrusion mechanism and thus raising intracellular calcium concentrations. Such an abnormality may provide an answer, in terms of contraction abnormalities, for the unexplained infertility that occurs in a small percentage of symptomatic myomatous patients.  (+info)

Paracrine changes in the peritoneal environment of women with endometriosis. (3/2415)

During the past decade, macrophage-derived substances such as prostanoids, cytokines, growth factors and angiogenic factors have been detected in the peritoneal fluid of women with endometriosis. In particular, growth-promoting and angiogenic factors are considered to be substantially involved in the pathogenesis of endometriosis. In this study, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1), substances recently detected in the peritoneal fluid of women with endometriosis, were assessed with regard to their concentrations in different stages of endometriosis and changes of the peritoneal paracrine activity after medical treatment with a gonadotrophin releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa). Peritoneal fluid was obtained from patients with endometriosis during laparoscopy before and after a 4-month treatment with a GnRHa. VEGF, TGF-beta and ICAM-1 could be detected in all women presenting with various stages of active endometriosis. After GnRHa therapy, all patients showed significant decreases in mean concentrations of VEGF (194+/-77 pg/ml), TGF-beta (902+/-273 pg/ml) and ICAM-1 (157+/-52 ng/ml). Patients with stage III and IV endometriosis (according to the rAFS score) had much higher concentrations of VEGF and TGF-beta before treatment compared with those patients with mild endometriosis (rAFS stages I and II). The most striking decrease in concentration was for TGF-beta, from 902 pg/ml before to 273 pg/ml after therapy. These results indicate an important role for paracrine activity in the establishment and maintenance of endometriosis. Indeed, treatment with a GnRHa may reduce paracrine activity in the peritoneal cavity via hypo-oestrogenism and provide proof of successful therapy.  (+info)

Endometriosis: a dysfunction and disease of the archimetra. (4/2415)

Endometriosis is considered primarily a disease of the endometrial-subendometrial unit or archimetra. The clinical picture of endometriosis characterises this disease as a hyperactivation of genuine archimetrial functions such as proliferation, inflammatory defence and peristalsis. While the aetiology of the disease remains to be elucidated, a key event appears to consist in the local production of extraovarian oestrogen by a pathological expression of the P450 aromatase. The starting event may consist in a hyperactivity of the endometrial inflammatory defence, a hyperactivity of the endometrial oxytocin/oxytocin receptor system or in the pathological expression of the P450 aromatase system itself. Regardless of which of these levels the starting event is localized in, they influence each other on both the level of the archimetra and the endometriotic lesions. Locally elevated oestrogen levels inevitably up-regulate the endometrial oxytocin mRNA and increased levels of oxytocin result in uterine hyperperistalsis, increased transtubal seeding of endometrial tissue fragments and finally subfertility and infertility by impairment of the uterine mechanism of rapid and sustained sperm transport. Locally increased levels of oestrogen lead, on both the level of the endometrial-subendometrial unit and the endometriotic lesion, to processes of hyperproliferation. These processes result, on the level of the uterus, in an infiltrative growth of elements of the archimetra into the neometra and, on the level of the endometriotic lesion, in infiltrative endometriosis. There is circumstantial evidence that trauma might be an important initial event that induces the specific biochemical and cellular responses of the archimetra. This model is able to explain both the pleiomorphic appearance of endometriosis and the, up until now, enigmatic infertility associated with mild and moderate endometriosis.  (+info)

Correlates of sexually transmitted bacterial infections among U.S. women in 1995. (5/2415)

CONTEXT: Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) of bacterial origin such as gonorrhea and chlamydial infection can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and infertility. Identifying behaviors and characteristics associated with infection may assist in preventing these often asymptomatic diseases and their sequelae. METHODS: Data from 9,882 sexually active women who participated in the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth describe the characteristics of women who report a history of infection with a bacterial STD or of treatment for PID. Multivariate analysis is used to determine which demographic characteristics and sexual and health-related behaviors affect the likelihood of infection or the occurrence of complications. RESULTS: Overall, 6% of sexually active women reported a history of a bacterial STD, and 8% reported a history of PID. Women who first had sexual intercourse before age 15 were nearly four times as likely to report a bacterial STD, and more than twice as likely to report PID, as were women who first had sex after age 18. Having more than five lifetime sexual partners also was associated with both having an STD and having PID. PID was more common among women reporting a history of a bacterial STD (23%) than among women who reported no such history (7%). In multivariate analyses, age, race, age at first intercourse and lifetime number of sexual partners had a significant effect on the risk of a bacterial STD. Education, age, a history of IUD use, douching and a history of a bacterial STD had a significant impact on the risk of PID, but early onset of intercourse did not, and lifetime number of partners had only a marginal effect. CONCLUSIONS: The pattern of characteristics and behaviors that place women at risk of infection with bacterial STDs is not uniform among groups of women. Further, the level of self-reported PID would suggest higher rates of gonorrhea and chlamydial infection than reported.  (+info)

Mouse MutS-like protein Msh5 is required for proper chromosome synapsis in male and female meiosis. (6/2415)

Members of the mammalian mismatch repair protein family of MutS and MutL homologs have been implicated in postreplicative mismatch correction and chromosome interactions during meiotic recombination. Here we demonstrate that mice carrying a disruption in MutS homolog Msh5 show a meiotic defect, leading to male and female sterility. Histological and cytological examination of prophase I stages in both sexes revealed an extended zygotene stage, characterized by impaired and aberrant chromosome synapsis, that was followed by apoptotic cell death. Thus, murine Msh5 promotes synapsis of homologous chromosomes in meiotic prophase I.  (+info)

Requirement of RBP9, a Drosophila Hu homolog, for regulation of cystocyte differentiation and oocyte determination during oogenesis. (7/2415)

The Drosophila RNA binding protein RBP9 and its Drosophila and human homologs, ELAV and the Hu family of proteins, respectively, are highly expressed in the nuclei of neuronal cells. However, biochemical studies suggest that the Hu proteins function in the regulation of mRNA stability, which occurs in the cytoplasm. In this paper, we show that RBP9 is expressed not only in the nuclei of neuronal cells but also in the cytoplasm of cystocytes during oogenesis. Despite the predominant expression of RBP9 in nerve cells, mutational analysis revealed a female sterility phenotype rather than neuronal defects for Rbp9 mutants. The female sterility phenotype of the Rbp9 mutants resulted from defects in oogenesis; the lack of Rbp9 activity caused the germarium region of the mutants to be filled with undifferentiated cystocytes. RBP9 appears to stimulate cystocyte differentiation by regulating the expression of bag-of-marbles (bam) mRNA, which encodes a developmental regulator of germ cells. RBP9 protein bound specifically to bam mRNA in vitro, which is required for cystocyte proliferation, and the number of cells that expressed BAM protein was increased 5- to 10-fold in the germarium regions of Rbp9 mutants. These results suggest that RBP9 protein binds to bam mRNA to down regulate BAM protein expression, which is essential for the initiation of cystocyte differentiation into functional egg chambers. In hypomorphic Rbp9 mutants, cystocytes differentiated into egg chambers; however, oocyte determination and positioning were perturbed. Therefore, the concentrated localization of RBP9 protein in the oocyte of the early egg chambers may be required for proper oocyte determination or positioning.  (+info)

The negative effect of repeated equine chorionic gonadotropin treatment on subsequent fertility in Alpine goats is due to a humoral immune response involving the major histocompatibility complex. (8/2415)

In dairy goats, the use of eCG as a convenient hormone for the induction of ovulation is necessary for out-of-season breeding and artificial insemination. However, repeated eCG treatments are followed by decreased fertility in goats inseminated at a fixed time after treatment. In this report, we show the presence of anti-eCG antibodies in plasma of treated goats. A 500 IU eCG injection induces a humoral response, with variable concentrations of anti-eCG antibody being produced in individual goats. The analysis of successive anti-eCG immune responses over several years has demonstrated the existence of different populations of goats, defined as low, medium, and high responders. By the use of two caprine microsatellites located inside (OLADRB) and outside (BM1258) the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), a significant association (p < 0.05) between the anti-eCG antibody response and some MHC-DRB alleles was found. Goats with high antibody concentrations at the time of eCG injection (> 2.5 microg/ml) exhibited a much lower kidding rate than did other females (41.3% vs. 66.7%). Lower fertility of these goats, inseminated at a fixed time after eCG treatment, might be due to the observed delay in estrus occurrence and the preovulatory LH surge.  (+info)

As you can imagine, the pathology of female infertility in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be very complex. The terms used in TCM, such as Kidney, Liver and Blood, have different meanings from those of Western medicine, and are capitalized here to show that the meaning isnt the same. They are widely used for lack of better translations. If youd like to learn more about TCM and infertility, refer to the books recommended in Resource - Book - Infertility section of our website.. According to a study published in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, liver Qi (vital energy) Stagnation and Kidney Deficiencies account for 51.7% and 22.4% of female infertility patients. This conclusion is hardly surprising when you consider current lifestyles and the demography of many female infertility patients. Liver Qi Stagnation is often associated with stress, a sedentary lifestyle, and a greasy diet. Kidney (whether Yin, Yang or Essence) Deficiency on the other hand is often the result of a very ...

The most common female infertility cause is an ovulation disorder. Other causes of female infertility include blocked fallopian tubes, which can occur when a woman has had pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis (a sometimes painful condition causing adhesions and cysts). Congenital anomalies (birth defects) involving the structure of the uterus and uterine fibroids are associated with repeated miscarriages. In females, possible factors implicated include an active sexual life starting at a very young age, an increased number of pregnancy terminations and multiple sexual partners (sexually transfered diseases as chlamydia etc). Most importantly, concern has been expressed about the decision some women have made in postponing having a baby, giving reasons such as education, career advancement and not yet finding the right man until late 30s or even early 40s.. ...

In this study, we have aimed to determine the hormonal profile of infertile women undergoing diagnostic laparoscopy as well as the presence of other hormonal abnormalities associated with PCOS. Measurement of hormone level is an essential part of investigation of infertility. Measurement of serum LH and serum FSH is done invariably in all infertile patients especially those with irregular menstruation. Most common hormonal disorder observed in female infertile patient is polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). The findings of one large series of 1700 women with PCOS shown to have serum LH concentration was significantly higher in primary infertility women than those of secondary infertility [14]. In our study, mean level of serum LH was 10.66±18.90 in primary infertility patients and 10.92±18.98 in secondary infertility patients, which was almost equal in both groups.. In this study of 200 infertile women, among them, LH:FSH level was found to be altered in 85 (45.2%) patients. PCOS was found to ...

Among those ages 15 to 44 years, around 10% of women in the United States have trouble getting or staying pregnant. Infertility means not being able to get pregnant after 12 months of unprotected intercourse. To become pregnant, a womans body must release an egg from the ovaries in the process of ovulation. The egg must pass through one of the fallopian tubes to implant into the uterus. Somewhere along the way, the mans sperm must fertilize (join) the egg. Once this egg is fertilized, it must attach itself to the uterus (implantation). Any problem or interference with this process could result in infertility. To assess female infertility, the fertility specialist uses a variety of techniques.. ...
Among other genetic causes of both female and male infertility there are small supernumerary marker chromosomes. Small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMC) are structurally abnormal chromosomes that cannot be unambiguously identified by sequencing or banding cytogenetics. The implication of sSMC in infertility could be due to a partial trisomy of some genes but also to mechanical effects perturbing meiosis. To identify sSMC it is necessary to proceed to chromosomal analysis by high definition karyotyping and/or FISH.. Breda Genetics panel recommended for this condition (EXOME PANEL):. Female infertility (AR, BMP15, BRCA1, CYP21A2, DHEAST, DIAPH2, FIGLA, FMR1, FOXL2, FSHR, HFM1, LHB, LHCGR, MCMDC1, MCM8, NOBOX, NR5A1, POF1B, PSMC3IP, SHBG, SRD5A1, SRD5A2, STAG3, TUBB8). plus.

Medication: Birth control pills can stimulate and regulate the menstrual period if a woman is not trying to get pregnant. Infertility patients with PCOS may start with Clomiphene Citrate, a medication designed to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple follicles and eggs. Other fertility drugs - Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) and Human Menopausal Gonadotropin (HMG) - also may be prescribed if Clomiphene Citrate alone is not effective. Finally, Progesterone may be necessary to help thicken the uterine lining and sustain pregnancy.. Medication also is available to suppress overproduction of Prolactin caused by Hyperprolactinemia. In cases of Hypothalamic Amenorrhea, Gonadotropins (LH and FSH) are prescribed to regulate levels of these hormones.. Ovulation Induction (OI): Used alone or with Insemination, OI relies on fertility drugs to stimulate development of the follicles and eggs.

Treatment of female infertility is increasing today in couples trying to conceive but unable to conceive due to fertility problems in women. Infertility is a physical and emotional disaster for women if they dont recover from the disease. It ruins their lives and makes them helpless in all conception efforts. Fortunately, there are fertility treatments and medications on the market that will help you be treated effectively.. Ovulatory problems are responsible for most cases of female infertility. Ovulation problems lead to zero fertilization of the eggs. If the woman is suffering from problems related to the pituitary or thyroid glands, this could be enough to conclude that fertilization cannot take place, as these glands release essential hormones that are essential for the proper functioning of the human body and the regulation of the Menstrual cycle are responsible for egg fertilization. Clomid & Pergonal are effective medications to stimulate ovulation.. There are several causes of ...
The researchers first compared breast density levels between fertile and infertile women. Women with a history of infertility had 1.53 cm3 (0.09 cubic inches) higher volume of dense breast tissue than women who didnt have a history of infertility. Then the researchers compared breast density levels between infertile women who had controlled ovarian stimulation and infertile women who had not received hormonal treatment. Women who had been treated with controlled ovarian stimulation had 3.22 cm3 (0.2 cubic inches) higher volume of dense breast tissue than women who didnt have hormonal treatment. There was no difference in the volume of dense breast tissue between infertile women who received hormonal treatment that wasnt controlled ovarian stimulation and infertile women who didnt receive any hormonal treatment. The results from our study indicate that infertile women, especially those who undergo controlled ovarian stimulation, might represent a group with an increased breast cancer risk, ...

Patrik M. Bavoil, PhD, professor at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry (UMSOD). Courtesy of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Scientists are being urged to consider a new paradigm in the basic biology of a pathogen that appears poised to inflict greater harm on public health due to human sexual practices. In a perspective based on historic and geographic patterns of Chlamydia trachomatis, Patrik M. Bavoil, PhD, professor at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry (UMSOD), and colleagues at the University of Maryland, Baltimore pose the question: Does active oral sex contribute to female infertility?. In the article, published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases on Nov. 15, 2017, Bavoil and colleagues present a multifactorial hypothesis based on revising the status of C. trachomatis from principal pathogen to commensal organism/opportunistic pathogen, which they urge both researchers and clinicians to explore.. Chlamydia is the most frequently reported bacterial ...

Approximately 10% of infertile couples are affected by endometriosis. Endometriosis affects five million US women, 6-7% of all females. In fact, 30-40% of patients with endometriosis are infertile. This is two to three times the rate of infertility in the general population. For women with endometriosis, the monthly fecundity (chance of getting pregnant) diminishes by 12 to 36%. This condition is characterized by excessive growth of the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium. Growth occurs not only in the uterus but also elsewhere in the abdomen, such as in the fallopian tubes, ovaries and the pelvic peritoneum. A positive diagnosis can only be made by diagnostic laparoscopy, a test that allows the physician to view the uterus, fallopian tubes, and pelvic cavity directly. The symptoms often associated with endometriosis include heavy, painful and long menstrual periods, urinary urgency, rectal bleeding and premenstrual spotting. Sometimes, however, there are no symptoms at all, owing to ...
An infertile couple presented with 5 years of primary infertility with male partner having azoospermia. The male partner was a 32-year-old businessman, nonsmoker, and nonalcoholic. He had attained normal puberty with well-developed secondary sexual characters. He denied any history of sexual dysfunction. He had a history of abdominal tuberculosis at the age of 17 years, and antitubercular treatment was given for 9 months. On clinical examination, no abnormality was detected and external genitalia were normal. He already had fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of both testes. There was no evidence of spermatogenesis in FNAC report as told by the patient. Serum levels of testosterone were low normal, that is, 4.22 ng/mL (normal range = 3.4-11.2 ng/mL). Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) was also below normal range, that is, 0.97 mIU/mL (normal range = 2.0-15 mIU/mL). Karyotype was normal. On ultrasonography (USG), the size of right testis was 36 × 21 mm and left was 38 × 21 mm (normal range). ...
Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Infertility may also refer to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility, some which may be bypassed with medical intervention as well. Infertility can be treated with medicine, surgery, artificial insemination, or assisted reproductive technology, though it often creates one of the most distressing life crises that an infertile couple can ever experience together. Many times these treatments are combined and in most cases infertility is treated with drugs or surgery. Doctors recommend specific treatments for infertility based on: test results, how long the couple has been trying to get pregnant the, age of the man and woman, the overall health of the partners, preference of the partners Infertility or sub fertility is no more a personal problem. Due to pollution and life style changes, infertility has become a common health ...
Two reviewers independently searched the Cochrane Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility Specialized Register (10 April 2013), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library 2013, Issue 1), MEDLINE (1950 to 4 April 2013), and EMBASE (1974 to 4 April 2013) using a combination of both index and free-text terms. We used no language restrictions. We searched other electronic databases of trials including trial registers, sources of unpublished literature, and reference lists. We handsearched the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology (from 1 January 1992 to 13 April 2013) and contacted experts in the field.. We included only studies that were clearly randomized or claimed to be randomized. Studies were selected if the source population included women of reproductive age suffering from infertility, bound to undergo operative hysteroscopy for suspected or unsuspected intrauterine pathology before spontaneous conception or any infertility treatment. Infertility was defined as ...
Many women turn to a gynecologist for help with infertility. Moreover, different women define this problem in different ways. Some wait 3-4 years and only then go to the doctor, while others start to worry after 2-3 months of trying to get pregnant. Sometimes women come to my office who are not planning a pregnancy at the moment, but just want to make sure that everything is fine with them and they can have children.. In the medical literature, infertility is defined as the absence of pregnancy after 12 months of regular intercourse without the use of contraception. Causes of infertility Infertility is a problem that affects both partners. Although many patients mistakenly believe that infertility is a purely female problem. Of course it is not. Infertility is divided into 2 categories: primary and secondary.In men, primary infertility means that none of his partners got pregnant, secondary infertility - when at least one of his partners was pregnant. There are many reasons for male infertility, ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Over the last several decades, both delay of childbearing and fertility problems have become increasingly common among women in developed countries. At the same time, technological changes have made many more options available to individuals experiencing fertility problems. However, these technologies are expensive, and only 25% of health care plans in the United States cover infertility treatment. As a result of these high costs, legislation has been passed in 15 states that mandates insurance coverage of infertility treatment in private insurance plans. In this paper, we examine whether mandated insurance coverage for infertility treatment affects utilization for a specific subgroup in the population: older, highly educated women. These women are both at high risk for fertility problems, and have high rates of coverage by insurance plans affected by the mandates. We find robust evidence that while an effect of the mandates on utilization can not be found for the full

Various hormones have been studied as regards prediction of pregnancy outcome after infertility treatment, but no ideal candidate has been found. Folate and genetic variations in folate metabolism have also been associated with infertility, but it remains unclear how these factors affect IVF pregnancy outcome. It is known that infertility is associated with active folic acid supplement use, but the effect of socioeconomic and lifestyle factors on folic acid supplement use in infertile women has not been well investigated. The overall aim of this work was to obtain information on the prediction of live birth, and to study factors affecting the role of folate and folic acid intake in relation to IVF pregnancy outcome. Infertile women with various infertility diagnoses were studied. Healthy, fertile non-pregnant women were used as controls in three of the studies. Blood samples were taken for assay of eight different hormones, folate and homocysteine, and for genomic DNA extraction. A questionnaire ...
Can retractile testicles cause infertility - My boyfriend fell on his bike at a young age and hit his testicles so hard that he said he urinated blood. Could this cause infertility? Possibly.. Testicular injuries may or may not cause fertility problems in later life. If youre not trying to get pregnant assume hes 100% fertile. If youre planning to conceive he should get a full semen analysis with antisperm antibody testing to make sure that he doesnt have a low sperm count, or proteins on his sperm that can prevent them from fertilizing an egg - injury is a risk factor for these.

Endometriosis is present in 6-10% of women in the general population, it is a factor of infertility in about 38-50% women trying to get pregnant and it is the main cause in 70-87% of women with chronic pelvic pain.. Endometriosis occurs when the cells that normally line the uterus (endometrium) enter the pelvic and abdominal cavity and attach to other organs found in them. These endometrial implants can grow and damage the structures they are attached to thus leading to organ dysfunction. These endometrial cells, which have receptors to both estrogen and progesterone, will become implanted in organs and structures outside of the uterus, where these hormonal activities continue to occur causing bleeding and scarring. These implants can be located in the peritoneum, ovaries, around the fallopian tubes, the gastrointestinal tract (12-37%), around the bladder (20%), and less commonly the vagina. Endometriosis is often found on the Fallopian tubes and it can penetrate and obstruct these delicate ...

Scientists have discovered an enzyme that acts as a fertility switch, in a study published in Nature Medicine today. High levels of the protein are associated with infertility, while low levels make a woman more likely to have a miscarriage, the research has shown.. The findings have implications for the treatment of infertility and recurrent miscarriage and could also lead to new contraceptives. Around one in six women have difficulty getting pregnant and one in 100 women trying to conceive have recurrent miscarriages, defined as the loss of three or more consecutive pregnancies.. Researchers from Imperial College London looked at tissue samples from the womb lining, donated by 106 women who were being treated at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust either for unexplained infertility or for recurrent pregnancy loss.. The women with unexplained infertility had been trying to get pregnant for two years or more and the most common reasons for infertility had been ruled out. The researchers ...
Male infertility is defined as a condition where the male partner is unable to make his female partner pregnant even after a year of sexual intercourse without using birth control. It is found that 20% of the total infertility i.e. male and female is because of male induced factors. One or more than one medical conditions or factors can contribute to male infertility. The significant causes include low sperm production, hormonal imbalance, abnormal sperm function or blockages in male reproductive systems. However, sometimes the symptoms or conditions causing male infertility are simply not identifiable. Although, presently, limited number of medical treatments exist at treating the symptoms of male infertility thus improving chances of female conception, the increase in number aging male population would drive the growth of the market. Diagnosing the cause of infertility may take long period and males may have to undergo a host of tests involving physical examination beginning with the concerned ...
Male factor infertility can cause genetic abnormalities such as Robertsonian translocations, androgen receptor mutations and Y chromosome microdeletions. Male factor infertility can cause failed pregnancies or produce children with genetic defects. The use of PGS can help increase chances of successful pregnancies and decrease the rates of development of children with genetic defects. However, such couples will have lower rates of conception, because there are fewer numbers of normal embryos available for implantation into the mothers womb.. With the availability of newer technologies such as PGS, male partners with male factor infertility have increased chances of producing normal children with their partners.. ...

Couples that follow healthful diets, exercise, and maintain healthy weights are less likely to experience medical problems that impair fertility. Risk Factors. ...
Causes of female infertility may include: Ovulation disorders, which affect the release of eggs from the ovaries. These include hormonal disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome. Hyperprolactinemia, a condition in which you have too much prolactin - the hormone that stimulates breast milk production - may also interfere with ovulation. Either too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism) can affect the menstrual cycle or cause infertility. Other underlying causes may include excessive exercise, eating disorders, injury or tumors ...

Treating Infertility: In Vitro Fertilization. In our last post,[1] we discussed the difference between infertility and impotence, stressing that infertility is not an impediment to marriage and that infertile couples can still be fruitful and open to life. We ended our last discussion by considering the fact that some methods of treating infertility may be perfectly acceptable and even praiseworthy, while others are seriously immoral. In this post, we will consider one such treatment: In vitro fertilization (IVF). While it has become a commonplace treatment for infertility, IVF is not compatible with the ends of marriage nor the human good as such.. So, what is IVF? In vitro fertilization is the process by which several human eggs are aspirated from a womans ovary, mingled with her partners (or someone elses) sperm, and then grown in a petri dish (in vitro is Latin for in glass). When conception takes place, the embryos are then implanted in the womans womb in the hope that at least one of ...

Corina Dunlap, ND Cand. A 29-year-old female was referred to our clinic for infertility treatment after she and her husband had been trying to conceive unsuccessfully for the past 13 months. Her husband had a semen analysis, which she reported was normal. The patient had become increasingly stressed and sad due to their inability to conceive despite conscious attempts and previous treatment. This is not an unusual presentation, considering that a significant number of women between the ages of 15 and 44 years are infertile. As of 2010, 16.6% in this age group have been found to be infertile and 11.9% have received fertility care.1 Our interactions with this patient consisted of 1 office visit and 3 follow-up phone consultations at 2, 11, and 17 months.. Pertinent findings in her history included the following: irregular menses since menarche, current presentation of oligomenorrhea with menses as far apart as 140 days, and signs of hyperandrogenism. The patient also reported increased hair loss, ...
released. There is approximately 25% of infertile women who have problems with ovulation. By helping these women to ovulate regularly, it increases their chances of pregnancy. These medications are called fertility drugs and may also improve the endometrium (lining of the womb or uterus) which is required for pregnancy.. Ovulation induction can help women who have irregular periods as they are likely to have ovulatory dysfunction by helping them to have regular ovulation. Some ovulation problems include: polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) - a hormonal condition which causes the eggs to not be released, ovaries that do not respond to hormones that help the maturation and release of the egg (luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)), thyroid problems, eating disorders, extreme weight gain and weight loss.. Before fertility drugs are given to patients, doctors often use a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) to make sure that the fallopian tubes (tubes for the fertilized egg to travel ...

It has been demonstrated by clinical studies that the bioactive components present in fenugreek seed extract - Furocyst contributes majorly towards the management of PCOS and induction of fertility. These bioactive components target insulin resistance to normalize the resultant overproduction of testosterones. It was also observed during the clinical study that Furocyst maintained regularity in menstrual cycle in PCOS women on completion of the treatment and women also got pregnant. It is known in PCOS that hormone levels such as luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels are reduced which is also one of the reasons behind infertility. But Furocyst treatment showed significant increase in LH and FSH levels in the women. Thus, the study concluded that Furocyst was efficacious in ameliorating PCOS.. According to Chaudhary S et al., insulin resistance plays important role in the reproductive dysfunction in women. They reported that PCOS women have insulin resistance, ...
Although 10% of infertile couples are diagnosed with unexplained infertility, infertility is generally diagnosed when conception does not occur after one year of unprotected intercourse. Where the woman is in her 30s or older, the diagnosis of infertility is usually made once a couple has been trying to become pregnant for only six months. This decision is based on the fact that a womans reproductive potential declines after the age of 35.. Unexplained means that, at the time of diagnosis, a conventional battery of fertility tests for both partners has failed to reveal a cause for infertility.. ...

  • Other less common causes of fertility problems in women can include physical problems with the uterus, or uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous tumors made of fibrous tissue and muscle cells that develop on the walls of the uterus. (
  • PCOS impacts fertility by decreasing the number of times a woman will ovulate throughout her lifetime. (
  • Many women with fertility problems eventually get pregnant. (
  • Interestingly, Chasteberry is one of the major ingredients in the formula 'Fertility Blend' which was studied at Stanford and found to produced a 32% pregnancy rate in infertile women after a three month treatment period. (

  • For Female Infertility Treatment , You need to consult a fertility specialist at Indira IVF for an appropriate solution. (
  • Melatonin has been demonstrated to be a powerful rejuvenator of ovarian health and may have the potential to improve egg quality and multiple parameters of female fertility. (
  • Few fertility specialists mention melatonin to women who are pursuing IVF or are otherwise trying to conceive with poor egg quality and lower ovarian reserve. (
  • Most every study on melatonin and female fertility has used a 3 mg dose taken at bedtime, this is the dose recommended by many top IVF docs. (
  • Two earlier studies provided conflicting results that may have occurred because the women were in their early childbearing years when the studies were conducted and because their fertility histories were incomplete. (
  • This finding supports earlier research, which found that structural abnormalities that affect fertility (such as endometriosis, abnormalities of the fallopian tubes, and inadequate production of cervical mucus) were more common among women whose DES exposure occurred during their mothers' first trimester of pregnancy. (
  • In a few women, the test itself can improve fertility, possibly by flushing out and opening the fallopian tubes. (
  • Although some women need just one or two therapies to restore fertility, it's possible that several different types of treatment may be needed. (
  • Fertility drugs are the main treatment for women who are infertile due to ovulation disorders. (
  • All the couples had spent a year or more trying to conceive, and none had obvious reasons for fertility problems -- the women were ovulating and had at least one functioning fallopian tube, and the men had normal semen analyses. (
  • It is not clear how obesity affects fertility in women who ovulate normally. (
  • Experts don't consider a couple to have fertility problems until they've been actively trying to get pregnant for at least one year, or if the woman is older than 35, for more than six months. (
  • Female factor infertility, including secondary infertility and infertility after miscarriage, that is due to uterine abnormalities like polycystic ovarian syndrome is often treatable, but requires the attention of a physician who specializes in female fertility. (
  • Pelvic adhesions often develop without presenting any symptoms, and are only discovered after the female patient begins struggling with fertility. (
  • Age can contribute to infertility because as a woman ages, her fertility naturally tends to decrease. (
  • DES syndrome (The medication DES, given to women to prevent miscarriage or premature birth can result in fertility problems for their children. (
  • For the study, researchers examined data on 211 women who went to a fertility clinic in Massachusetts to be evaluated for in vitro fertilization. (
  • Because the study participants were 35 years old on average and seeking care at a fertility clinic, it's possible the results might not reflect what would happen for younger women or all women trying to conceive. (
  • Of the 75,784 women for whom fertility history was available, 11,006 (14.5%) were infertile, defined as not having conceived despite a year of intercourse. (
  • However, he pointed out, it would have been interesting if the researchers had included "a third group of women with a common benign female condition not linked to mortality or fertility. (
  • Clearly this affects a woman's chances of reproducing, since fertility in women declines after age 35. (
  • As fertility declines with age, a woman who is over 35 and trying to conceive is advised to seek help after six months of trying to become pregnant. (
  • Female fertility declines rapidly after the age of 37, with women over age 42 only having a five percent chance of conceiving without fertility treatment. (
  • Female fertility declines rapidly after the age of 37, with women 42 and older having just a five percent chance of having a baby without fertility treatment. (

  • Obesity is associated with many adverse maternal and fetal effects prenatally, but it also exerts a negative influence on female fertility. (
  • The results suggest that exposure to estrogenic chemicals in the womb or during childhood has the potential to affect a woman's fertility as an adult, possibly providing the mechanistic basis for some cases of unexplained female infertility . (
  • Therefore, estrogenic chemical exposure to the female fetus, infant, child, and adolescent all have potential impacts on mucosal immunity in the reproductive tract and, therefore, on adult fertility. (
  • The doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital then tested the woman for several infections that are known to affect fertility, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, but the results were negative. (
  • By removing the eggs while a woman is still in a fertile phase of her life and then freezing them, we're able to lock in the fertility rate of that age. (
  • Women are born with all the eggs they will ever have and slowly lose them throughout their lifetimes: Women tend to experience a "perceptible decline" in their ovarian reserve starting at age 35, followed by a precipitous decline after 37, explained Dr. Bala Bhagavath, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology who treats patients at the University of Rochester's Strong Fertility Center. (
  • The reason for the shorter time-frame for women over 35, is that is more of a sense of urgency due to declining fertility. (
  • Approximately 35% of women and 45% of men worldwide are considered to have reduced fertility (to be sub-fertile) and about 7% of women and men are effectively infertile (2,3). (
  • If male fertility problems are considered central in about 40% of couples experiencing child bearing hurdles (4), we can deduce that a staggering 60% is due to female infertility. (
  • In the first recorded volume of my Latest in Nutrition series back in 2007, we learned that meat is so packed with sex steroid hormones that when pregnant women eat meat, it may affect the development of their sons' genital organs while still in the womb-such that when they grow up, they have decreased fertility. (
  • Is there a direct effect of meat consumption on fertility in women? (
  • Now, while animal protein was associated with increased risk of infertility, consuming protein from vegetable sources appeared to have the opposite effect-protecting, improving fertility. (
  • With egg donation, science has succeeded in, if not extending women's fertility, at least making an end run around it, allowing older women who, for a variety of reasons (lack of money, lack of partner, lack of interest, lack of partner's interest) didn't have children in their biological prime - as well as younger women with dysfunctional ovaries - to carry and bear babies themselves. (
  • The group has published medical studies and citations in journalsincluding "Fertility and Sterility" and "Medscape General Medicine" that showimprovements in fertility, pain and sexual function, after women received thenew therapy. (
  • The book opens by discussing anovulation, oocyte quality, and the endometrium in women with PCOS, infertility and subfertility cofactors, and the impact of PCOS phenotypes on fertility. (
  • According to EFT founder, Gary Craig, "EFT offers a faster, more permanent solution to stress reduction and fertility issues because it addresses the energy imbalance as well as the unresolved negative emotions that are creating the energy imbalance and infertility. (
  • Craig says, "When infertility is an issue I would recommend trying EFT before investing in expensive fertility treatments or lengthy psychotherapy. (
  • In honor of National Infertility Awareness Week , we asked women who are dealing with fertility issues to share what they wish people knew about their struggle. (
  • The chances of a couple to successfully conceive at an advanced age depend on many factors, including the general health of a woman and the fertility of the male partner. (
  • A review from 2010 concluded that overweight and obese subfertile women have a reduced probability of successful fertility treatment and their pregnancies are associated with more complications and higher costs. (
  • In hypothetical groups of 1,000 women undergoing fertility care, the study counted approximately 800 live births for normal weight and 690 live births for overweight and obese anovulatory women. (
  • In addition, fertility treatments tend to be more successful in younger women, so seek treatment as soon as infertility is suspected. (

  • They are offering women 25-40 free FSH fertility testing. (
  • One of the primary ways to test female fertility is through a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) blood test on day three of her menstrual cycle. (
  • The sooner a woman knows her 'fertility number' the more options she will have with regard to her reproductive options. (
  • Both Drs. Shapiro and Daneshmand are offering free FSH testing during the month of October for women ages 25 to 40 so that they can know their 'fertility number. (
  • As women wait longer to have children, more couples have fertility problems due to declining egg quality, and other issues that are more common in older women. (
  • However, as women delay childbearing, society has not educated us about this fertility decline. (
  • Women should be educated on the decline in fertility as well as the success rates of assisted reproduction with age. (
  • There are also no guarantees that an individual woman will have a smooth drop in her fertility potential as she ages. (
  • Scientists are not certain how many women are affected by infertility caused by persistent immature eggs, but it is thought to be rare - it has been reported to be as low as 0.1 percent of women who seek fertility treatment in China. (

  • Infectious organisms produced in the GI tract can reach the rectum and go on to infect the female urogenital tract, potentially contributing to, among others, PID and tubal factor infertility. (
  • Obese women have reduced fecundity even when eumenorrheic and demonstrate poorer outcomes with the use of in vitro fertilization. (
  • If that fails and they go to IVF, [in vitro fertilization], about 70-to-80 percent of those women going through IVF, before the embryos are put back in, will have the embryos tested for chromosome problems using next-generation sequencing, which is this genome technology that's revolutionizing medicine. (
  • Studies of subfertile women undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment also show a reduction in fecundity among women smokers. (
  • The Practice Committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has published guidelines for a standard infertility evaluation. (
  • Even if a woman does ovulate, medical conditions such as endometriosis, underactive thyroid, benign uterine fibroids, or pelvic inflammatory disease can cause scars and obstructions in the Fallopian tubes that keep egg and sperm apart. (
  • This implies that chronic exposure to long-term mobile phone radiation may severely affect ovarian and uterine activity and lead to infertility. (
  • The Other Causes Are: The blockage of fallopian tubes Disorders in the reproduction tract due to endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory diseases Congenital birth defects where the uterine structures and the uterine fibroids gets affected due to numerous miscarriages The other major factor is aging How ovulation disorders cause infertility? (
  • Endometriosis: Does It Cause Infertility? (
  • Endometriosis is a leading cause of infertility and typically impacts women between 25 and 40 years of age. (
  • Women with endometriosis have a high chance of having other hormonal dysfunction conditions, like progesterone deficiency, that can make implantation weak and cause early miscarriages. (
  • Pelvic adhesions can result from any kind of infection in the pelvis or abdomen, as well as from endometriosis, secondary infertility, and even trauma to the pelvic or abdominal area. (
  • If the doctor suspects ovarian or fallopian tube scarring or endometriosis, a woman may undergo a laparoscopy. (
  • Researchers report that a common cause of female infertility is better treated with an established ovulation-inducing drug than with an increasingly popular alternative. (
  • Cervical issues - Some women suffered from a condition in which the sperm face difficulties in order to passing through the cervical canal. (
  • Abnormal cervical mucus can also cause infertility. (
  • Hostile Cervical Mucus, a condition in which the male sperms are unable to survive due to the hostile cervical conditions of the female during intercourse, accounts for 20 percent of female infertility, claim IVF experts. (
  • Hostile Cervical Mucus may also occur if women eat a lot of dairy products and find that the cervical mucus becomes very thick. (
  • Another reason can be some specific group of medications such as Antihistamines, which is said to create hostile cervical mucus in many women," said Arvind Vaid, an IVF specialist at Indira IVF Hospital. (
  • Nikita Rawal, an Indore based IVF specialist, said that women can get diagnosed hostile cervical mucus by Postcoital Test, in which the interaction of sperm-mucus is accessed. (
  • It's the best test to diagnose cervical mucus problems especially if results for other tests are normal and there still persists an unexplained cause of infertility. (
  • A post-coital test necessitates the couple to have intercourse before the woman visits the physicianís office to examine her cervical mucus. (
  • Some females with abnormal cervical mucus face infertility. (
  • In women, tobacco changes the cervical mucus, thus affecting the way sperm reach the egg. (
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a major cause of tubal infertility. (
  • Pelvic area abnormalities can be another cause of female factor infertility. (
  • If pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) strikes a woman more than once, it can double her risk of infertility, and quadruple her risk of chronic pelvic pain, a new study shows. (
  • Women with recurrent PID were four times as likely to report chronic pelvic pain, as well as nearly twice as likely to report infertility as women who had only one PID episode. (
  • If a woman does not recall ever having pelvic inflammatory disease, her doctor may be able to see scarring or blockage of the tubes during a surgical procedure called laparoscopy . (
  • It can cause pelvic pain and infertility. (
  • As many as 40% of women with untreated chlamydia will develop pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). (
  • The vast majority of patients I see for secondary infertility are in their mid- to late-30s," he said. (
  • In other cases, secondary infertility is simply unexplainable, leaving hopeful parents feeling bewildered and unmoored. (
  • And with secondary infertility, that frustration can compound parents' feelings that they do not completely belong to any one category. (
  • Indeed, therapists who regularly treat patients experiencing secondary infertility say that what makes the condition particularly isolating is that it can be perceived by others as a selfish obsession. (
  • The estimates of how many women have secondary infertility varies widely, but somewhere around 30 percent of infertility in women is secondary infertility, according to experts. (

  • Ovulatory disorders are one of the most common reasons why women are unable to conceive, and account for 30% of women's infertility. (
  • Obese women are more likely to have ovulatory dysfunction due to dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis. (
  • For ovulatory women, the study counted approximately 700 live births for normal weight, 550 live births for overweight and 530 live births for obese women. (
  • The increase in cost per live birth in anovulatory overweight and obese women were, respectively, 54 and 100% higher than their normal weight counterparts, for ovulatory women they were 44 and 70% higher, respectively. (
  • In this Harvard study involving 18,555 married women without a history of infertility, results indicate that higher intake of protein from vegetable sources instead of animal sources may lower the risk of ovulatory infertility. (
  • During 8 years of follow up, 438 women reported ovulatory infertility. (
  • Substituting vegetable for animal protein for 5% of caloric intake was associated with a 50% reduced risk of ovulatory infertility. (
  • Thus, the authors of this study conclude, "Replacing animal sources of protein with vegetable sources of protein may reduce ovulatory infertility risk. (

  • As women, we're used to hearing jokes about our fluctuating hormones causing problems. (
  • The cause of fibroid is still not clearly known, but it is believed that certain factors, such as family history, hormones, infertility, age, descent and body weight may influence their formation. (
  • Increased weight can also increase insulin levels in women which in turn may cause the ovaries to overproduce the male hormones and stop releasing eggs. (
  • Genetic testing helps determine whether there's a genetic defect causing infertility. (
  • There is usually nothing that can be done to prevent female infertility caused by genetic problems or illness. (
  • The more we know about the genetic nature of infertility in both men and women, the more we realize that the condition may be related to general health. (
  • Women should realize that the risk of mortality is low," he added, noting that these results "have not been confirmed by other studies, and we do not understand why this would be occurring on a physiological, genetic, or molecular level. (
  • We've also found a number of women that have a genetic condition that disrupts their telomeres and they also have accelerated aging of their reproductive system. (
  • Causes or factors of female infertility can basically be classified regarding whether they are acquired or genetic, or strictly by location. (
  • Although factors of female infertility can be classified as either acquired or genetic, female infertility is usually more or less a combination of nature and nurture. (
  • In broad sense, acquired factors practically include any factor that is not based on a genetic mutation, including any intrauterine exposure to toxins during fetal development, which may present as infertility many years later as an adult. (
  • Chinese researchers have identified genetic mutations that cause infertility in a small number of women. (
  • Primary infertility is a state where a couple is never able to conceive even after unprotected intercourse. (
  • When a woman hasn't conceived after a year of regular, unprotected intercourse during her most fertile times of the month (before and during ovulation), infertility is a possibility that she and her partner must consider. (

  • The woman can elevate her pelvis with a pillow during intercourse and for about 15-20 minutes afterward so that gravity can assist the sperm in reaching their goal. (
  • If a woman stays in a prone position for fifteen minutes or so following intercourse, this allows the sperm sufficient time to reach the egg. (
  • One definition of infertility that is frequently used in the United States by reproductive endocrinologists, doctors who specialize in infertility, to consider a couple eligible for treatment is: a woman under 35 has not conceived after 12 months of contraceptive-free intercourse. (
  • a woman over 35 has not conceived after six months of contraceptive-free sexual intercourse. (
  • In the UK, previous NICE guidelines defined infertility as failure to conceive after regular unprotected sexual intercourse for two years in the absence of known reproductive pathology. (
  • Updated NICE guidelines do not include a specific definition, but recommend that "A woman of reproductive age who has not conceived after 1 year of unprotected vaginal sexual intercourse, in the absence of any known cause of infertility, should be offered further clinical assessment and investigation along with her partner, with earlier referral to a specialist if the woman is over 36 years of age.
