Infertility in Males and Females

DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology -, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi

Hello, I am Dr Shobha Gupta. I am a director at Mothers Life IVF centre and here at Mothers Life IVF centre, we are treating the infertile couples.

So, first of all, we want to tell you, what is infertility?

Of the couple is unable to conceive after one year of unprotected sex and they are unable to conceive and pregnancy is not happening you must go to a specialist and infertility specialist basically an IVF centre, where all the facilities are available.

What are the causes of infertility in females?

 It might be a tubal blockage and the tubes are not working and they are blocked, irregular menstrual cycle. Ovulation is not happening at the proper time and the couple is unaware about the fertile period and certain myths are there. In males, the basic problem is in the sperms either the decreased sperm count or the decreased motility is there. Lifestyle plays a vital role in causing infertility these days and stress is the main problem and also the diet and us after seeing lot many cases of PCOS i.e, Polycystic ovarian Syndrome, where the cycles are very irregular and the females are getting obese. There is hirsutism, that is unwanted facial hair and unwanted hair on the body and irregular menstrual cycle and they are not ovulating at the proper time. So these are lifestyle disorders. So you have to manage your weight. You have to improve your lifestyle. You have to manage your stress and then you have to consult an infertility specialist and go to an IVF centre so that all the tests are being done at the single time and where the problem is diagnosed and you are treated properly.

What are the treatment options available?

Suppose, the lady is not ovulating at the proper time so we do certain medications so that you can ovulate and then we do the follicular monitoring and then we tell you the fertile period. If the sperm count is less and the ovulation is not proper, then we can give you certain injections so that the egg ruptures and we can do IUI i.e, Intra Uterine Insemination . The Intra- cytoplasmic sperm injection is second option if the tubes are blocked and if the infertility is more than 3 to 4 years of duration. You can go to an infertility centre like an IVF centre we can do an IVF i.e, In vitro Fertilization, where we extract your eggs, match with your husband’s sperm and create an embryo and transfer in the uterus of the patient and they can conceive.

These days the success rate of IVF is very good and especially at our centre, it is brilliant because we treat you. Basically, we modify your lifestyle also we modify your stress level and then we treat you and the success rate is very good. In cases of male infertility, the Intra- cytoplasmic sperm injection is a very good technique to be opted for. In this, we inject the sperm directly and then we create embryos into the wife’s womb and they conceive very easily. So Intra- cytoplasmic sperm injection is the basic technique which should be used in like olygospermia where the counts are decreased and motility is decreased.

So, I am also available at Lybrate . If you want more information and any help our center is having all the facilities available.

You can consult me at lybrate , you can take appointment. You can consult me online; you can give a phone call.

All the best and stay healthy.

I am from Mysore. Not all varieties of Bananas are good for diabetes. Since there are more than 4 commonly available varieties in Mysore, it will be really helpful if you can throw light on these. Thanks, Ajay.

Hye. There is no special variety of bananas for diabetics. Bananas are a moderately low glycerin index fruit. You must understand that to maintain sugar levels the ideal way to take any fruit is as a mid meal or as an early morning snack or after a strenuous activity. Avoid fruits after a main meal or with meals. Stick to a moderate amount of any fruit and avoid their juices.

I am 31 year male weight 78 kg. I have so much pain, fatigue in the body also have ibs problem. My tsh is 14. Dr. prescribed me thyronorm 50 mg. Is pain and fatigue due to hypothyroidism. I have tested b12. Vit d, ra ,esr, uric acid, blood sugar all r normal. L am feeling so much tired and loss of energy. My brother also have tsh 24. But he is not feeling so much pain or tiredness as me.

Mr. lybrate-userji, Thanks for the query. With TSH 14 mU/L you have hypothyroidism, this needs to be treated. Your current dosage given is much below the actual need. Your dosage should have been over 100 mcg per day. Taking 50 mcg per day is not going to be adequate. Please check your TSH level after 6 to 8 weeks of starting that treatment. TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L for being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. In uncontrolled condition body pain (muscle and joint pains) and fatigue and tiredness are some of the main symptoms. Hence, once TSH level is brought down to above mentioned, you will definitely feel better. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing foods. Always use whole grain flour, for chapatis and roti. Consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid bakery items and foods made of maida. Thanks.

Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-Drink enough fluids:-Keep your body well hydrated.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medicine will depend upon your blood reports.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Post surgery it is very essential to control glucose levels strictly for quick healing as well as for prevention of long term complications. Usually after many years of treatment with oral drugs, many patients have to be shifted on to insulin for better control. If with current dosage glucose control is not as expected, then we will have to increase the dose of Insulin, both in the morning and at night. Ideally FBG <100 mg PP 160 to 180 mg. So to achieve those levels, there has to be a change in insulin dose. Plus we will have to also look at other antidiabetics that he may be taking. Thanks.

MD, MCH, BHMS
Homeopath, Pune
Diabetes is of primarily two types – Diabete mellitus (Type-I and Type II) and Diabetes insipidus.

What is type-1 diabetes?

Type-1 diabetes is sometimes called juvenile diabetes, or insulin-dependent diabetes. It means that your body can’t make insulin. Insulin helps your body turn the sugar from the food you eat into a source of energy. Type 1 occurs more frequently in children and young adults, but accounts for only 5-10% of the total diabetes cases nationwide.

What is type-2 diabetes?

Type-2 diabetes results when insulin production is defective and tissue resistance to insulin develops. For many persons with Type-2 diabetes, daily insulin supplementation is not required. Diabetes is managed by making moderate changes in diet and exercise. Of the nearly 16 million Americans with diabetes, 90-95% (14.9 million) have Type-2 diabetes. Of these, roughly a third are unaware they have the disease.

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease involving abnormalities in the body’s ability to use sugar. Diabetes is characterized by:

Elevated blood sugars for months to years.
Both hereditary and environmental factors leading to its development and progression.
A relative or absolute deficiency of effective circulating insulin. Insulin is a substance made by the pancreas which lowers blood sugar in conjunction with meals. Diabetes is characterized by either: (1) an inability of the pancreas to produce insulin (type 1 or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus) or an inability of insulin to exert its normal physiological actions (type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes).
Often recognized in patients and their families by excessive urination, thirst, weight loss and/or a lack of energy. But diabetes is often silent and may exist for many years without the individual’s noticing it.
Effects certain “target tissues,” that is, tissues which are vulnerable to the damaging effects of chronically high blood sugar levels. These target tissues are the eye, the kidney, the nerves and the large blood vessels, such as in the heart.


A form of diabetes resulting from a deficiency of vasopressin (the pituitary hormone that regulates the kidneys); characterized by the chronic excretion of large amounts of pale dilute urine which results in dehydration and extreme thirst.

A good diet to the mother is always good for the child. Coconut pulp and water is rich in natural electrolyte content which keeps the mother healthy. Mother's circulation delivers these things to the child making him gain weight and provide enough amniotic fluid around the child. Cannot comment upon the claims of fairness as these are not substantiated scientifically.

Mr. Lybrate-user, measles is a self limiting disease. Total duration of the disease could be about a week. Pox scars take a little longer o disappear. Spreads through as coughing and sneezing as a droplet. There is no treatment except controlling fever through antipyretic drugs, giving oral rehydration solution to prevent dehydration. So you may give this kind of treatment, which will help in relieving all the symptoms. Vomiting can be controlled by using small amounts of ors solution orally or if need be anti emetic drus can be used. Thanks for the question.

Hi The best test to take away your confusion is HbA1C test which is your previous 3 months average blood sugar. More than 6.5 is diabetes, if it's less than 6.5 but more than 5.7 it's pre diabetes. Less than 5.7, is normal.
