Infertility - Why It Is More Of A Social Problem?

Infertility - Why It Is More Of A Social Problem?

Infertility is a condition that can be caused due to a variety of reasons, for both males as well as females. Yet, it also comes with plenty of emotional baggage because there is a great deal of social stigma attached to childless parents, especially in the developing countries like India, where we still hold on to traditional thinking which does not really justify modern day realities.

Understanding Infertility in the Developing World: As per medical science, infertility is defined as a problem that is faced by couples who do not manage to conceive even after a year of trying without any birth control measures. In countries like ours, there is a great social stigma that is attached to being childless. As per many studies by the World Health Organization (WHO), about 15% of couples the world over are affected by infertility. Also, such cases go undetected because there is a great social stigma attached to the same. Further, there may be underlying conditions like Tuberculosis which may have been undiagnosed because people do not like to talk to doctors about the symptoms. The main problem in countries like India, and others areas is that people do not open up about such problems and they consider doctors and other medical practitioners as strangers.

Still in the Dark Ages: Even though we have made the transition from an agricultural country where we would pray to the elements and wait for signs for all our everyday activities from harvesting to childbirth, to an industrial country we are still in the dark ages as far as our social setup goes. There are many educated and well-heeled families where being childless is considered as an issue. And many people tend to go to astrologers and temples to change their fate, where a simple visit to a doctor and procedures like IVF, or adoption as the last resort, can also work out.

Infertility Stigma for Males and Females: For an infertile couple, the problem may stem from the male, or the female or both partners. There are still many social stigmas that are attached to this and many people in countries like India tend to call the woman barren, if she is unable to bear a child. In many cases, the male partner does not even go in for a check up as it is not even considered as an option that the problem might lie with him. Male erectile dysfunction, ejaculation problems, and general infertility can cause a range of issues for the couple when it comes to conception. So it is imperative to have the same checked by the doctor so that a sperm test can also be conducted and the treatment can carry on accordingly with the help of IUI or IVF.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

First his sugar level must be controlled by insulin. If not other conditions will not controlled. If infection is causing fever a suitable antibiotic can be given. Get his blood urea and creatinine checked.

Diabetes kisi bhi umra me ho sakata hai. Aap ko usaka ilaj karvana padega, yane blood sugar ke hisab se tablets ya insulin injection lene padenge. Dane ki koi baat nahi hai. Barabar dava lenese aap ki jindagi acchi tarah se ji loge. Shadi aur bacche sab hoga. Do not worry.

I am 78 years old, male, and have diabetes type 2 for over 40 years, H1bc is 7.0 I took 1/4 cup Oatmeal with tea spoon of cinnamon, fistful of cashews, 8 almonds, 8 walnuts, and half fistful of raisins for breakfast. But my sugar levels did not drop and I was gaining weight. Now I am taking only two boiled eggs but my fasting sugar is varying from 100 to 160 depending on what I eat for dinner. When I eat yellow Dahl cake, it is 100, but when I have Alu ka Sabji, it is 160. I take metformin 1000mgX2 Glipizide 5mgX4 for my diabetes and I have discontinued use of Lantus insulin 20 Units prescribed by the Dr. Kindly suggest a good BF food for me.

Sugar,jagary, honey,sweets sweet fruits (like mangoe, banana,cheeku, dates,grapes, including resins) should be avoided. Regular activity like walkin is Regarding medicines follow advice of your doctor.

I am 58 years old, male with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At present I am put on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1. Of late, I am thinking of replacing Amisulpride with Paliperidone 3 mg OD (Of course, only after the consent of my Psychiatrist, with whom I have an appointment next week). In the mean time, I want to know, how safe it is and will it react with Sizopin? Please confirm.

If you have been stabilized with amisulpiride and sizopin , its better to continue the same treatment. if you have any side effects or if there is no improvement, then only you think of changing the medication. As such paliperidone has no serious side effects but can cause stiffness of muscles and shaking in some pts.
