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.

Sexual response cycles in males

MD-Dermatology, MBBS
Sexologist, Pune
Sexual response cycles in males

Sexual response cycles in males

Sexual Response cycle:


Men and woman, with some sexually arousing stimulus, proceed through orgasm and end with a return of the body to a sexually unstimulated state. This is described in four stages: Excitement, Plateau, Orgasm, and Resolution. There are no sharply defined moments when one stage ends and the next begins. Each phase merges with the next phase.

Excitement

Men: Erection of penis, marked increase in its size, and a rise in its angle. Erection may be triggered by penis itself or by sexually stimulating sight, smell or thought. It occurs in 3 to 8 seconds.

A small penis may double in length while in a large penis lengthening is less marked.

Partial elevation and increase in the size of testes.

Men and Women: Muscle tension rises. Heart rate increases. Blood pressure rises.

Plateau

Men: Full erection of the penis. The increase in size and full elevation of testes. Little secretion from Cowper's glands appears at the Urethral meatus.

Orgasm

If effective sexual stimulation continues in the Plateau phase, a point may be reached where the body suddenly discharges its accumulated sexual tension in a peak of sexual arousal called 'Orgasm'. It is also called as 'climax' or 'coming'. Orgasm is the shortest phase of sexual response usually lasting for only a few seconds during which rhythmic muscular contractions produce intense pleasurable sensation followed by rapid relaxation. Orgasm occurs in both the sexes.

Men:

Orgasm occurs in two distinct stages. In the first stage the Vas deferens, the prostate and Seminal vesicles begin a series of contractions that forces semen into the bulb of the urethra. The man experiences a sensation of 'Ejaculatory inevitability-the feeling of having reached brink of control. At this point ejaculation cannot be stopped. In the second stage of orgasm contraction of urethra and penis combined with contraction in the prostate to cause ejaculation (spurting of semen out of tip of penis). During ejaculation the neck of the urinary bladder is tightly shut to avoid any mixture of semen and urine. The rhythmic contractions of prostate, the perineal muscles and the penis occur initially at 0.8 seconds intervals.

Male orgasm and ejaculation are not one and the same process. Although the two occur simultaneously, orgasm refers to muscular contraction and release of sexual tension, while ejaculation refers to the release of semen. Orgasm without ejaculation is common in the boy before puberty.

Men and women: High myotonia. The whole body may become rigid for some time. Grimace or frown may be seen. Breathing up to 40 per minute. Heartbeat up to 110-180 p.m. blood pressure is raised. Anal sphincter contracts.

Resolution

Men: Man is not able to have multiple orgasms. Immediately after the ejaculation man enters a 'refractory period' during which further orgasm or ejaculation is impossible. Usually the erection subsides quickly. There is great variability in the duration of refractory period. It may last from few minutes to many hours. This period gets longer with each repeated ejaculation. As the man gets older, the refractory period gets longer. The period of return to the unaroused state is called the 'resolution phase'. The anatomical and physiological changes that occurred during excitement and the plateau phase reverse.

Blood is pumped out of the penis and therefore loss of erection. The testes decrease in size and descend into scrotum.

Men and Women: Mutual orgasm of both is not possible. It is better to allow woman to have orgasm prior to man's by manual stimulation of clitoris, or 'woman in top' position. There is no distinction among sexual responses by masturbation, by sexual intercourse or by artificial coitus.

Orgasm is always clitoral in origin. The vaginal orgasm is a myth. Women are capable of responding to the point of orgasm as quickly as males by clitoral stimulation (but not through intercourse).

I am 42 years old male with no genetic diabetes history. Recently after blood testing found fasting sugar 139 mg/dL and cholesterol (HDL 25, LDL 167 and Triglyceride 355 ). I am doing 4 test in a day with help of gluco check meter. I am finding lots of variation. From day 1 to day 5 - fasting sugar varies from 115 to 160. Whereas after food 2 hrs varies from 95 to 190. I used to drink less water about 500 ml per day and now trying drink 2 to 3ltrs per day. Also to add above I was consuming anti depression medicines depsonil 25 mg x1 and nexito 10 mg x2 once a day for more than year. For last 2 years I have stopped taking those. During those medicine time I use to feel very hungry in morning where I use to eat 8-9 roti's. During that time my skin became very sensitive which use to give little scratches on penis which I think were diabetes symptoms. My BMI is in normal range with height 170 cm and weight 68. 5 kg.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Doing excessive testing is not going to change anything, except getting more pricks. Just do a fasting, PP (2 hrs after food) & HbA1c% or if you want to be doubly sure get an Oral Gllucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) with 75 g of glucose. That will give a clear idea plus HbA1c%. Following are the criteria for diagnosing diabetes: FBG >126 mg and above, PP > 200 mg and above & HbA1c% >6.5%. If these criteria are met then there is diabetes. Which will then require treatment with drugs, diet control and exercise. Thanks.

Hi onion is very good vegetable to treat sexual impotence. It increases libido and strengthens reproducing organs. White onions are best for this purpose. Take about 5-10 gm root powder of Ladyfinger in a glass of milk. Add 2 tsp of mishri in this milk and drink it. This will prove helpful in improving sexual vigour. Apply pranacharya gopal oil on your penis and give a massage. It will strengthen your nerves and erection power will get better. You can take ayurvedic medicines too along with this.

Head ache can be of many reasons and the commonest is visual refractive error of eyes, Checking eyes and correcting errors can cure headaches, similarly the cause can be migraine and tension. Tension relieving methods and migraine medication can sure these. Check your eyes first of all and do a blood CBC & TSH and inform me personally This includes the blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. They may also result from changes in chemical activity in the brain. Primary headaches can occur when pain-sensitive structures in the head do not work properly. Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Headache is a broad term that encompasses many different things. Headaches are pains that occur in any region of the head; they can occur on both sides the head or be isolated to a certain location. Headaches can radiate across the head from a central point or have a pincering vise-like quality. They can be sharp, throbbing or dull, appear gradually or suddenly and last for multiple days or less than an hour.4 There are multiple ways to define headaches. The International Headache Society (IHS) categorize headaches as primary headaches or secondary headaches, depending on what has caused them 1) Primary headaches Primary headaches are stand-alone illnesses caused directly by the overactivity of, or problems with, structures in the head that are pain-sensitive. This includes the blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. They may also result from changes in chemical activity in the brain. Primary headaches can occur when pain-sensitive structures in the head do not work properly. Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Some types of headache can be both primary and secondary as they may be an isolated issue or a result of another condition or illness. Such headaches can involve:  Direct physical stimuli, such as temperature and external pressure  Pain over the scalp (epicranial)  Physical exertion  Other miscellaneous headaches. 2) Secondary headaches Secondary headaches are headaches that are symptoms of another condition that stimulates the pain-sensitive nerves of the head. There are a vast number of different conditions that can cause secondary headaches, ranging in severity from an alcohol-induced hangover to a brain tumor. Secondary headaches can be the result of serious conditions such as stroke, but can equally be a consequence of eating cold food too quickly. In addition to those two examples, the following list should serve to illustrate the variety of different conditions that can cause secondary headaches:  Blood clots  Brain freeze (ice cream headaches)  Carbon monoxide poisoning  Concussion  Dehydration  Glaucoma  Influenza  Overuse of pain medication (rebound headaches)  Panic attacks  Stroke. As headaches can be a symptom of a serious condition, it is important to seek medical advice if headaches become more severe, regular or persistent. For example, if the headache is more painful and disruptive than previous headaches, worsens or fails to improve with medication or is accompanied by other symptoms such as confusion, fever, sensory changes and stiffness, a doctor should be contacted.

Masturbation addiction is, simply put, the compulsive need to masturbate. The need becomes so overwhelming that the addict does not have the power to keep from masturbating. This overpowering desire is at the base of most forms of sexual addiction. The need to view pornography is usually a precursor to masturbation. Involving with prostitutes and illicit sexual activity is the next stage to it. It should be stopped as it has done lots of damage to you mentally/physically. It ruins once sexual health and even further lead them to impotency. Opt for my ayurvedic medicines (with counselling given on phone) that will help you stop this addiction. Proper medication will be given to control the urge of sexual desires and to recover the loss/damage given to the body Including penis curve and also penis enlargement. Conslt me privatly for further guidance. Do not worry Tc.

Is it necessary that to enjoy sex your foreskin has to be cut if it does not retreat while having sex.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Is it necessary that to enjoy sex your foreskin has to be cut if it does not retreat while having sex.
Hello- If foreskin does not retract easily, it will cause pain, bleeding and inflammation during sex and thus you will not be able to enjoy or experience any pleasure sensation during sex. So yes, the foreskin needs to be look out if having difficulties in retraction. You can make it flexible by daily oiling and stretching at home.

Dark sign on neck? Diabetes

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Dark sign on neck? Diabetes
Are dark cracks behind neck a sign of diabetes?

Many overweight and obese people have darkened and a rather flaky texture behind neck, darkening in armpits and other parts of body with creases and folds like elbows, knees or knuckles. This is commonly mistaken as smudge of dirt, uncleanliness or lack of hygiene. Some people think that it is due to repeated friction caused by necklace or chains etc. In fact it is a sign of'diabetes' which is already developed or might develop in future.

This darkening is due to excessive cell growth and differentiation of fibroblasts caused by excess of insulin in the body especially in obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients.

In obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients excess amount of fat especially abdominal fat (tummy fat) causes resistance to action of insulin secreted by pancreas and tends to hamper its action. In return, body produces more and more insulin from pancreas to keep blood sugar under control. This excess amount of insulin secreted by body promotes this skin cell growth leading to the visible condition called'acanthosis nigricans' in medical terms.

After producing excess amount of insulin pancreas start exhausting, this converts into diabetes. At this stage diabetes can be prevented by simple lifestyle modifications & focussed weight loss.

As you said you have been diagnosed as the case of antral gastritis which means you are already suffering from acid peptic disorder which gives you erosive gastritis in the stomach. These minor erosions sometimes bleed and may present as Tarry Black stools, also it is always associated with increased transit time of the colon which presents like altered constipation and loose motions. I would like to suggest you to go for consultation and discuss your problem in detail including your food habit your daily routine pattern and under medical supervision with the help of few drugs and some diet modifications it can be controlled very well. Regards.
