6 Common Causes of Infertility That are also Curable

6 Common Causes of Infertility That are also Curable

Infertility is a very common problem among both men and women and it refers to the inability to conceive even after regular unprotected sex. The causes of this can be varied and some of the most prominent ones are:

Causes in Women:

1. Polycystic ovarian syndrome - PCOS is a medical condition in women in which they do not ovulate. It is a major cause of infertility in most women. It can often result in irregular menstruation and an increase in the release of male hormones in the female body. This causes male symptoms like the growth of a beard, hoarse voice etc. in females. The probable causes of this condition comprise being over or under weight, thyroid imbalance etc. It is possible to treat this condition with medical aid and weight management can also prove to be helpful.

2. Lack of sufficient healthy eggs - As you grow in age, the number and health of your eggs decline significantly. This could be a possible reason for your infertility. In this condition, optimizing egg health by maintaining a healthy weight and quitting alcohol and cigarettes can help you get rid of your infertility.

3. Blockage of the fallopian tubes - Blockage of or damage to the fallopian tubes causes the tubal factor that is responsible for infertility in women. The tubal factor can also be a result of endometriosis or any sexually transmitted disease like Chlamydia etc.

Causes in Men:

1. Ejaculatory disorders - Retrograde ejaculation, premature ejaculation, and other issues associated with ejaculation may cause infertility in men. In retrograde ejaculation, the semen enters the bladder instead of emerging out of the penis during orgasm. In premature ejaculation, the ejaculation occurs before the vagina is prepared to receive the semen.

2. Chromosome defects - Disorders like Klinefelter's syndrome can cause abnormal growth of the male reproductive organs resulting in infertility. Other such syndromes include Kallmann's syndrome, Karatagener's syndrome, cystic fibrosis etc. These conditions are mostly genetic.

3. Hormonal imbalance - Male infertility can also be a result of hormonal imbalances like hypogonadism (low testosterone levels), disorders of the testicles, abnormal functioning of the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal and the other glands as well.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht) is a condition caused by inflammation of the thyroid gland. It is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body inappropriately attacks the thyroid gland - as if it was foreign tissue. The underlying cause of the autoimmune process remains unknown. Hashimoto's thyroiditis tends to occur in families. It can be associated with other autoimmune conditions such as type 1 diabetes or celiac disease. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is 5 to 10 times more common in women than in men and most often starts in adulthood. Blood drawn from people with hashimoto's thyroiditis typically reveals an increased number of antibodies against thyroid-specific proteins, including thyroperoxidase and thyroglobulin. T- lymphocytes, a type of cell involved in the inflammation process, invade the thyroid gland cause silent, painless inflammation that destroys it; ultimately, the individual produces little or no thyroid hormone and becomes hypothyroid.----------------the treatment of choice for hashimoto's thyroiditis is typically synthetic t4 or thyroxine (levothyroxine) along with homoeopathic medicine thyroidinum- 3x (schwabe gernam) by chewing 2 tabs twice daily so as to keep the dosage of levothyroxine under check. The medication must be taken indefinitely, and successful treatment alleviates the symptoms and signs of hypothyroidism. Without medication, there is very little chance the thyroid would be able to maintain hormone levels within the normal range, and symptoms and signs of hypothyroidism would occur or worsen. The dosage of levothyroxine may need to be modified after checking tsh levels once yearly---------------------------------taking iodine can make the things even more complicated as intake of iodine increases tsh levels whereas ht has symptoms of hypothyroidism where tsh levels are already high, hence iodine therapy is used in hyperthyroidism nd not hypothyroidism--------------------

Be specific whether your diabetes is too old or two years old. Because you can get numbness because of uncontrolled diabetes of longer duration resulting in diabetic neuropathy. Some times nutritional def can also can give you similar trouble. Get your hba1c, s, proteins, s creat, tsh, cbc, s. B12 levels done.

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

Certificate in Basic Course on Diabetes Management, CCEBDM Certificate in Diabetes, MBBS
General Physician, Pune
Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Diet, exercise, oral medication are three basic steps to control type 2 diabetes. Depending on availability of free endogenous insulin and control this will work in most of the cases but at times during temporary crisis like surgery, heart attack etc insulin has to be brought in temporarily. When things go out of hand insulin may have to be introduced may not be in all cases.

Hi doctor, I am suffering from high uric acid 7.2. For this I am taking homeopathic medicine (mother tincture urtica urens). But there is no visible results. Please suggest some good allopathic medicine to reduce my uric acid.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, to control uric acid (if raised and having any symptoms like pain in joints or gout), then there is a need for drugs to reduce uric acid or excrete it. Plus there may be a need for pain killers. If there are no symptoms at all and only blood shows raised uric acid, then there is no reason to worry about. You can control intake of foods which are rich in purines like organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods such as herring, trout, haddock, scallops, sardines, salmon, anchovies, mussels, mushrooms and shell fish. Also avoid alcohol and sweetened drinks, high fat milk products. You can consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, fruits, and eggs, milk products etc. This will help in reducing uric acid.

Your thyroid is not as much bad as your LDL cholesterol value is! Infact TSH of 6.55 means that we need to check your Anti-TPO antibody test as well and only if this test gives us high values then only Thyroid medicines are recommended for you. But most definitely your Lipid values are way of range.
