Talking About Infertility

Brief description on infertility and its treatment

I am Dr. Radhika gynecologist and infertility specialist from Institute of Women's Health and Fertility. Infertility almost in about 10-15% of couples trying for pregnancy are facing problem with conception. This is almost a rising trend that nowadays almost 1 in 6-7 couples have problem in conception.

When we call it infertility? Infertility is nothing but when a couple is trying to conceive without any protection or without any means of protection for almost 1 year of unprotected intercourse we call it infertility. Let me just explain how an infertile couple is taken through an infertile clinic? During the first visit the couple is analysed and they are taken in detail history as what is the cause to infertility? What is the duration of infertility? What is the duration of married life? What is the age of the couple that is the age of the female partner and the male partner? Had there been any pregnancy in the past? Is there any miscarriage in the past? Once the examination and history is taken we go for work up of the patient. That is we see for the ovarian function to ensure that ovary is functioning well that is to ensure that ovulation is going fine. We also look for the tubal factors. Tubal factor analysis is done by a test called salpingogram or hysterosalpingogram. If there is a problem in hysterosalpingogram that is tubes are looking blocked then we analyze with the further test called further the surgical assessment; like laparoscopy.

Once the tubes are cleared we also analyze how the uterus is with the hysterosalpingogram? As I already told you male factor is analysed by Semen analysis after an abstinence of 2 to 5 days. Once all these are ruled out we get to analyze or we get to reach to a conclusion as what may be the probable cause of these infertile couple? There may be few factors like peritoneal factors like an endometriosis. We have the endometrium of the inner layer of the uterus growing elsewhere outside the uterus. That is the inner layer of the uterus or endometrium grow in the ovaries or may grow in the pouch of Douglas. That is behind the uterus or may grow near the tubes. These all cause an addition or attachment of the uterus to the tubes. And they impair the easy pick up of the ovum or the egg from the end of the tube to the ovum end that is the inner end of the tube. When there is no egg pick up there is no pregnancy. Some most of the time in which simple infertility treatments and simple infertility counselling how they have to go about natural conception and when they have to try when the egg is being released? With all these thing itself 70% of the couples would conceive. And only in about 10 to 15% will go to the next step like IUI or further steps like test tube baby procedures. IUI is intrauterine insemination where sperm sample is collected in the laboratory. It is washed off the impurities and the good motile sperms are injected into the uterus through a thin canella or a catheter. This sperms have to travel a very short distance from the uterine cavity into the tube when egg is already picked up and stay. So this distance to be travelled is very short thereby increasing the chance of pregnancy. IUI is of major benefit in minimal or mild male factor infertility.

Once we have seen the other factors are also ruled out and ensure that everything is fine then we counsel the couple for IVF or test tube baby procedure. IVF is in vitro fertilization. What we do in this one is give injections or give continuous injections to the lady which will cause superovulation. Once the eggs attain a mature size we collect all of them through a thin needle into the test tube washed off the impurities and then incubated. The same time the sperm is collected in the laboratory. The egg under sperm is inseminated together and embryos are grown in the laboratory. Once these embryos are grown they are pushed back or transferred back to the womb using a thin capita that is the embryo transfer catheter. After 48 to 72 hours usually or even after 5 days sometimes.

But, in few men or in few couples the problem is the severe male factor infertility. That is we find only few sperms or in the ejaculate we find only few sperms or sometimes not even a few sperms in the ejaculate. In that condition we can surgically aspirate the sperm from the testicular tissue and see if it is already there. Once we get a good sperm from the testicular tissue we inject that good sperm tissue in the cytoplasm of the egg so that we have maximum chance of fertilization. This particular process is called ICSI or Intracytoplasmic sperm injection. So this increases the chance of fertilization and this further increases the chances of pregnancy also. That's it about infertility over you.

Thank you And if you have any issues regarding infertility or regarding counselling about how conception occurs are how to go about trial for pregnancy you can visit us.

Like maintaining normal weight, exercising regularly, avoiding smoking, alcohol, restricting salt intake and deep fried foods. Healthy regulated life style is a great asset.

Dose depends on body weight and tsh depends on compliance to drug and correct dose. You should continue as thyronorm 50 ug daily monday to friday and 100 ug on saturday and sundays. But take medicines regularly empty stomach maintain 45 minutes gap between medicine and breakfast.

My brother-in-law (age 32) was diagnosed with diabetes-2 recently (HbA1C-10 and RBS 500 at the time of diagnosis. Doctor immediately gave insulin and kept him on metformin 850 mg (BDPC) and sitagliptin 100 mg ODPC. He has changed his diet (taking cereals and millets instead of white rice. Now his sugar levels are in control and the doctor advised to continue the dosage for 3 months. Then after the tests he will adjust the dosage accordingly. Since he is taking proper diet, my sister is worried with side effects of medicine and high dosages. Is this dosage too high and dangerous?

Most of the patients whose HB1c is more than 10% with blood sugar in range of 500 mg I always initiate with insulin therapy and continue insulin for 3 months till Hb1c is less than 7% and continue control of sugars with the help of suitable oral tablets. Only in some group of patients where there is chronic infections, hormonal imbalance - kidney or liver malfunction than some times it is safer and better to continue insulin injections for long term .As the awareness regarding proper diet and regular exercise increases and patient tries to incorporate in his daily routine may result in to gradual reduction of insulin and tablet dosages over time.

Dear let me know your latest sugars. It is very rare to have low blood sugars with only one tablet of glyciphage. Have small frequent meals every 3 hrs. Why dont you try cycling. It ia a very good exercise. Also you need to understand that energy expenditure should be more than energy intake for a successful weight loss. Please consult a dietician for a lesser calorie diet which does not cause weakness.

Hi lybrate-user tips for weight loss eat fresh vegetables daily. Avoid having sugar completely. Eat whole wheat bread instead of white bread; avoid everything made from white flour and make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life. Do not skip a meal and eat three meals a day. Drink plenty of water to eliminate the toxins from the system. Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoons a day. Increase the fiber intake as it provides a sense of fullness and also prevents hunger pangs. Take antioxidants for protecting the body against the toxins released during weight loss. Exercise catalyzes your efforts to lose weight and even regular walking for thirty minutes can give you the benefits of an aerobics exercise. To improve the metabolism, try increasing the duration, frequency, intensity of your daily workout. Remember that maintaining the ideal weight is a lifetime commitment and not a short-term affair. Firmly believe that the pleasure of being trim and healthy is far better than the pleasure of eating unwisely.

You can control your sugar level with medication, diet and lifestyle medications. Medicines can only be suggested after knowing your fasting and pp sugar levels. For diet increase your intake of green leafy vegetable like spinach, peas, beans etc. Avoid oily fatty, junk food, exercise daily including brisk walk of 20 min with thin soled shoes.

Thanks for the query. From your information I understand the your father has T2 DM, plus diabetic neuropathy and possibly problem in passing urine due to prostate enlargement. But to give any suggestions and decide on any medications I need to know following details: Fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, present diet, extent of daily exercise, BP readings, lipid profile, medications in addition to Insulin with dosage. It would be better if you come in a private consultation with all the above information, then I will be able to advise specifically. Based on your given info I am in no position to assess anything. Thanks.

Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time.
