Causes of male infertility: Methods of Diagnosis

  • Scrotal ultrasound. This test uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images inside the body. A scrotal ultrasound can help the doctor see if there is a varicocele or other problems in the testicles and supporting structures.
  • Hormone testing. Hormones produced by the pituitary gland, hypothalamus and testicles play a key role in sexual development and sperm production. Abnormalities in other hormonal or organ systems might also contribute to infertility. A blood test measures the level of testosterone and other hormones.
  • Post-ejaculation urinalysis. Sperm in your urine can indicate that sperm are traveling backward into the bladder instead of out your penis during ejaculation (retrograde ejaculation).
  • Genetic tests. When sperm concentration is extremely low, there could be a genetic cause. A blood test can reveal whether there are subtle changes in the Y chromosome — signs of a genetic abnormality. Genetic testing might be ordered to diagnose various congenital or inherited syndromes.
  • Testicular biopsy. This test involves removing samples from the testicle with a needle. If the results of the testicular biopsy show that sperm production is normal , then the problem is likely caused by a blockage or another problem with sperm transport.

However, this test is not commonly used to diagnose the cause of infertility.

  • Specialized sperm function tests. A number of tests can be used to check how well the sperm survive after ejaculation, how well they can penetrate an egg, and whether there's any problem attaching to the egg. Generally, these tests are rarely performed and often do not significantly change recommendations for treatment.
  • Transrectal ultrasound. A small, lubricated wand is inserted into the rectum. It allows the doctor to check prostate, and look for blockages of the tubes that carry semen (ejaculatory ducts and seminal vesicles).

Side-Effects Of IVF You Should Be Aware Of!

Side-Effects Of IVF You Should Be Aware Of!

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a process where the egg or ovum is fused with the sperm in a laboratory. In vitro is a Latin word meaning “in glass” wherein the process takes place. The procedure of fertilization is induced in a laboratory setting and the zygote sits for 3 to 6 days before it is finally transferred into the uterus of the woman willing to carry it and the process of pregnancy as is known continues forward. This method is a blessing for women who are unable to conceive naturally and it is resorted to as the last step in trying to conceive for it is a costly process not everyone can avail.

Apart from that, the fact that it is restricted in a lot of countries has given birth to “fertility tourism” whereby people move to other countries where it is legal to get IVF. IVF comes with its set of risks and it is important to keep in mind that the process is not 100% effective all the time. While being a ray of hope for many women, it has its own complications that you need to be aware of before you decide to take a plunge into this expensive treatment:

  1. Ectopic Pregnancy: This is a rare condition where the embryo, which is placed in the womb, somehow develops in the fallopian tubes. It is not clear as to why this happens and studies show that it may occur more in women who have defective fallopian tubes but this can give rise to some serious complications; such as extreme pains in the abdomen, unprecedented increase in amount of pregnancy hormones, even some vaginal bleeding.
  2. Multiple Births: Since there’s always a risk that IVF may not be successful at the first go, sometimes to increase the chances multiple embryos are planted. This can lead to extremely dangerous consequences like multiple births, twins or triplets even. It poses a considerable health risk for the mother and the child, more so than what comes with a singleton birth. It can lead to miscarriages, raises the chances of neonatal deaths by considerable amounts and premature births.
  3. Draining resources: Since the problem with IVF is that the success rate depends from person to person, if you fail at the first go, you have to keep trying which is not a very feasible option for each time the treatment costs a lump sum amount. Notwithstanding, there is also the matter of emotional and physical exhaustion and the heavy amounts of hormone treatments that can get to your head and impose immense psychological stress on both partners. It is essential that you surround yourself with supportive family members and friends, who can understand what you are going through.

How to manage pcod to achieve pregnancy? 

Infertility is one of the most stressing factors in women`s life and it may influence their satisfaction and quality of life . In our study all the patients were infertile which may have impaired their sexual function that could justify the high prevalence we found. The majority of our patients had menstrual irregularities which reveals their hormonal disturbances.Pcos patients markedly suffer from sexual dysfunction as comorbidity. It seems appropriate to screen all pcos patients for sexual function.

When women with pcos are trying to have a baby, intimacy can go from" the joy of sex to the job of sex" since conceiving can often involve scheduling sex during the times they're most fertile.Women also might be taking fertility medication that can affect their libido.
