Male Infertility : Not A Cause Of Worry Anymore

One of the major concerns of all the couples nowadays is infertility. This remains a big concern due to high rate of incidence among the young couple today. And the reasons for the same might be different for the different couple. Infertility can affect both the males and females. Around 35% of the infertile couples bear causes due to male infertility, 35% due to female infertility, and 20% due to a combination of both.

AIIM and ARC discusses male-infertility and its causes in detail so as to create the perfect awareness about the situations and circumstances that can lead to the same scenario. The main aim of ARC and AIIM is to educate common people about infertility.

Male Infertility Causes

Male infertility can be caused due to different reasons out of which, the prime reasons are
  • Low sperm count
  • Abnormality in the sperm structure
  • Blockages in the vas deferens or associated paths causing infertility, even though sperms may be in good condition.
  • Injuries or ill conditions affecting the male reproductive systems
  • Lifestyle reasons which can affect the reproductive capacity
  • Hormonal variations caused due to different reasons like high intake of junk fast food, illicit steroid usages for bodybuilding, etc
  • Varicocele- the swelling of the veins on testicles
  • Undescended testicles
  • Inherited genetic problems like chromosome disorders
  • Heavy exposure to pollution

When the couple had been trying to conceive a baby through unprotected sex, for more than 1 year, it can be considered the case of infertility. There are different symptoms of male infertility. But, these may not be common for all, or general for all. Ejaculation or erection problems during intercourse, swellings on or around the testicular region are quite a few symptoms among the many.

Yes, the rate of male infertility cases are high, but there are a lot of treatment solutions that can bring out the best results further. Different infertility treatments specialised for males like the Assisted Reproductive Technology(ART), hormonal medications, treatments for sexual intercourse problems etc.

Children are the blessings of God, and we try to bring them to you with the best of its possible ways. Smile wide, for there is no need for worry!

Obesity And Infertility Are Two Sides Of The Same Coin

Being overweight and underweight can simultaneously affect the chances of getting pregnant and having a physically fit baby in your hands. Only, systematic and healthy food with regular exercises help a woman to conceive without any complications. The obesity among males also causes infertility and it decreases the sexual desire.
Pregnancy risks associated with obesity are miscarriage, gestational diabetes, cesarean birth, ,hypertension , deep vein thrombosis and infection. Of course, there are treatments to resolve the issue, but controlling obesity right from the Childhood is the best solution possible.


Effects of Obesity on Fertility


Hormonal Change

Both male and female belonging to an obese category will definitely have hormonal imbalance that lead to issues related to pregnancy. This is because the influence of natural hormones that usually helps in the process of conception fluctuates as the person becomes obese. The major cause of infertility in obese women is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).


Natural and Assisted Pregnancy becomes a Concern

Either by natural means or technologically advanced methods such as IVF, the obesity hinders the process of conception . It can be due to the hormonal issues and the production of poor quality eggs increasing the risk of miscarriage.


Insulin Resistance

Irregular menstrual cycles and anovulation occur as a result of insulin resistance.


Infertility among Men

Testosterone goes down to an insufficient level among obese men. Erectile dysfunction and low sperm count also results due to Obesity..

Obesity, irrespective of gender, can lead to infertility and even causes complications in pregnancy and childbirth. Hence, it is highly recommended to maintain an optimal weight. Visiting an Infertility specialist before planning for a baby, will also help you.

ARC and AIIM collaboratively provides awareness programs for childless people and public. Please attend the program for more details.

Embryo Cryopreservation For IVF Procedure

In the advanced Embryo Cryopreservation technique, the sperms and embryos are frozen and thawed for IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) cycles. As the frozen embryos are already available through this technique, a woman need not undergo fertility drug stimulation in order to have an embryo to transfer at the infertility treatment. When sperm is collected manually or by microsurgery, and the same is frozen for successive IVF cycles, so that any additional surgery may be avoided.

Embryo cryopreservation process:

A cell mostly contains water. When freezing the embryos, the ice is formed in and between the cells which are the main concern. Ice crystals have the ability to hurt the cell wall, harm the tiny structures inside the cell. The main goal of the freezing process is to protect the embryo. With the help of special fluids called cryoprotective agents (CPAs) protection of embryo is carried. It acts as “anti-freeze” for cells.

Slow programmable freezing and vitrification are the two methods used to freeze and preserve embryos.
  • Slow programmable freezing
The embryos are frozen slowly in stages. The cryoprotective agents are added to the embryos to increase the strength for 10-20 minutes. Then, the embryos are gradually cooled for two hours using a machine that lowers the temperature minute by minute. The frozen embryos are stored in liquid nitrogen at -196.1° Celsius.
  • Vitrification
It is a fast freezing technique that uses cryoprotective agents at a higher strength. In this method, the embryos are mixed with the CPAs. The strong CPAs could hurt the cell. In order to prevent any damage, the embryos are quickly placed into the liquid nitrogen medium. In this process, the embryos are changed into a solid state. In this state, no ice formation happens.

Duration of Embryo preservation

Once the embryos are frozen, they are stored in a liquid nitrogen freezer. Embryos can be frozen in the liquid nitrogen medium for years together. However, some countries follow time limits to store the embryos in the frozen condition. Within 1-6 days after the embryo formation, it is frozen.

Everything You Need To Know about IVF

Infertility became a common phenomenon in these days, around 1 in 6 couples are affected. 5% of the infertile couples turn to IVF to help them conceive. That means 1 in 50 babies are now born using IVF. IVF or in vitro fertilization is the joining of egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. Healthy ova and sperms are collected from the infertile couples. After the formation of the embryo, it is transferred into the uterus.

Fertility pills or hormones may be prescribed for the couples to stimulate follicle production, to stimulate the ovaries so multiple eggs can be gathered. This increases the chance of fertilization, pregnancy, and a live birth.

Causes of Infertility:

The cause of infertility may be related with woman in 40%, man in 40%, 20% resulting from a combination of both. According to the WHO, 3.9 to 16.8% of the Indian population suffers from infertility.

Male infertility causes include:

The inability of a  male to cause pregnancy in a female is referred to male infertility. Approximately 7% of all men is infertile. It is commonly due insufficiency of semen and semen quality. Small, lack of sufficient volume of ejaculate or difficulty during ejaculation, unhealthy sperms, low mobility of sperm, infections, tumors, undescended testicles are the main causes of male infertility. Hormonal imbalance and certain medications sometimes cause infertility.

Female infertility causes:

Infertility of female is the inability to become pregnant and give birth to a healthy child. After 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse, if the female is not able to get pregnant, it is considered to be female infertility. Secondary infertility is the inability of a woman to get pregnant or give birth when there was a previous live birth. Age may be a reason for infertility in woman because it naturally tends to decrease. Damage to fallopian tubes or uterus, problem with ovulation, thyroid gland problems, excess weight gain, urinary tract infections, stress, cysts and tumors in the reproductive parts, eating disorders, endometriosis, PCOS are the main reasons for female infertility.

When to consult an infertility specialist

After 12 months of conscious trying to conceive, it is better to seek medical check-up to discover the underlying cause. If you can't conceive naturally you can consider In Vitro Fertilization. IVF treatment has high success rate and it helps you to get your dreams come true. The success rate of IVF treatment depends on maternal age, causes of infertility, and lifestyle.

AIIM and ARC together provides awareness programs on infertility and it's treatment options for the childless couple and public.
