All about Female Infertility

1. Control your body weight – Obesity amongst many other causes is a leading cause of infertility. In order to get treatment for infertility, first and foremost step that you have to take is to modify your lifestyles. You need to get moving and losing your fat in order to remain not only in good physique but also in healthy condition to conceive children. Watch with your food intake and throw away sugary foods like carbonated drinks and sodas as well as junk food like burgers, deep fried meat and French fries. These things do not provide you with the necessary strength and energy for fertilization process. Maintain balanced diet including all types of fruits and vegetables to be consumed in varying quantities so that you get the best of nutrients and minerals from all types of healthy food items.

2. Use fertility drug – Clomid is one of the most anticipated and the best fertility drug present in the market. Not only it is cheap, but also very helpful in resulting in successful pregnancies. It is a 5 day course to consume this tablet once daily. It can only be consumed orally and has promising results.

3. Diabetic drugs – Some drugs used to control diabetes or regulate insulin levels inside the women’s body have also been shown to treat infertility, especially PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). However these drugs are to be used in conjunction with balanced diet and regular workouts.

4. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) – IVF perhaps delivers the best and the highest chances of pregnancies and provides doctors with a better control over relative multiple births occurrences. It is although, a very costly method of getting treated.

5. Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis – Also referred to as PGD, is an Assisted Reproductive Technology method used in artificial insemination to induce ovaries and get pregnant. This method involves complete physical examination o fallopian tubes, vagina, cervix, ovaries and body hormones in order to determine any hormonal disorder and get treatment thereafter. Such a diagnosis is performed before embryo implantation, sometimes even before fertilization. This is one of the safest methods used in Assisted Reproductive technologies where the risk of abnormal birth or birth defect is negligible. The success of this technology is directly related to the woman’s age. If woman is above 35, the chances of getting necessary chromosomes from the embryo would decrease by as much as 50%.

6. Surgery – Ovarian drilling is a surgical method when the woman’s hormone system does not respond or produce enough ovaries after stimulation via drugs or treatment. This process also recognized as Laproscopy could lower male hormones, increasing probability of ovulation.

7. ICSI – ICSI is also referred to as an artificial insemination method of getting pregnant without any sexual intercourse. It is often a highly expensive method of conceiving. Sperms are collected in small tubes via sperm donor or husband and then washed separating live healthy sperms from dead ones. The embryologist then selects a live sperm with the help of a microscopic needle and inserts it carefully into the outer shell of egg penetrating the inner shell. This method has a 70% to 80% rate of success and again varies with patients’ medical condition, physical condition, or emotional condition.

8. IUI – is also an artificial insemination method in which the sperm gets injected using syringes or cervical caps of a sperm donor or husband directly on and above the vagina. This process has a success rate of roughly 10% to 20%. This is relatively cheap and economically priced method of infertility treatment.

Sterilization Control

The problem of rapidly increasing population in developing countries has led to the initiation of vigorous birth control campaigns. But these have not always been easy to implement. In a country such as India where more than three-quarters of the people still live in some 600,000 rural villages, children have always been considered as an economic asset. Each new individual is a potential new worker which means greater productivity in the fields and extra security in the parents old age. This meant that when family planning workers visited these villages, birth control methods were met with resistance on both economic and religious grounds.

During the mid-1970s, however, the Indian government initiated a sterilization campaign, at first voluntary but later enforced and in early 1977 a law was passed stating that all government workers would undergo sterilization or lose their jobs.

Sterilization has emerged in the last two decades as a popular and effective method of birth control. It is argued by some that it is actually the most important issue of our time considering the current debates over climate change, famine, and pollution. One simple method to reduce the strain on the earth’s resources would be to cut down the human population over the next hundred years. It is estimated that it is now the most widely used method of family planning in the world, chosen by over 100 million couples. The largest proportion of sterilized couples are found in the developing countries especially where other methods of contraception are not freely available or easily administered.

Barrier Methods

Barrier methods of birth control generally do not result in the development of side effects as hormonal contraceptives are known to do. In addition, it is possible to purchase certain types of barrier birth control such as condoms and sponges without requiring a prescription. The only disadvantage to using barrier birth control is the development of an allergic reaction to the latex in condoms. What’s more, with the exception of male and female condoms designed to protect against sexually transmitted disease infections, most other forms of barrier birth control cannot effectively protect you from contracting STDs. It is therefore advisable to always use a condom whenever you have sexual intercourse so as to protect yourself from STDs such as HIV/AIDS. Natural membrane condoms made out of sheepskin are not recommended however, as these do not offer perfect protection against all STDs.

Unlike other types of birth control, barrier methods of birth control are typically only used when a couple has sexual intercourse. It is important to carefully read the instructions provided on the package of the barrier contraception before using it. This will help to ensure that you use it correctly and succeed in preventing pregnancy each time you have sexual intercourse. For instance, a male or female condom should be immediately removed after intercourse and disposed of. On the other hand, contraceptive sponges should be left inside the vagina for at least six hours after intercourse before being removed and disposed of. A diaphragm or cervical cap must be left inside for at least six hours and then washed and stored to be used again. In the event that you suspect your barrier birth control method has failed or was used incorrectly, you may employ emergency contraception such as douching so as to prevent pregnancy.

Estrogen Dominance

There are many symptoms of estrogen dominance that need to be studied before finding out the final cure. Estrogen dominance is defined as an abundance of estrogen in females over the natural progesterone levels. The abnormality may lead to several symptoms. Dr. Lee says that if the level of progesterone falls below that of estrogen, estrogen dominancy symptoms could occur. In other words estrogen and progesterone levels need to be in balance to avoid getting estrogen dominance disease. It is a very common disease found in today’s women that can be cured if caught in early stages. The following is a comprehensive list of estrogen dominance symptoms amongst females:

1. Heart disease
2. Frequent strokes
3. Breast cancer
4. Breast firmness
5. Eye dryness
6. Loss of Hair
7. Increased fatigue
8. Infertility
9. Deficiency in magnesium
10. Uterus cancer
11. Deficiency of zinc
12. Frequent headaches
13. Abnormal periods of menstruation cycle
14. Decreased sex drive

20. Inability to focus or concentrate for longer periods of time
21. Prostate cancer
22. Ovaries cancer

The above mentioned are the most common types of estrogen dominance symptoms that requrie emergency medical attention to be cured. There are two main cures for this disease namely Hormone replacement therapy & Estrogen replacement therapy often quoted as HRT & ERT.

Hormone replacement therapy:

HRT is a medical treatment procedure used for treating estrogen dominance in females. It is a surgical process in which menopausal women get treated via special therapies to get cured from this disease using fertility drugs. More of the times, it is known as treatment, instead of therapy. HRT can also be used to treat infertility amongst females.

Usually low doses of estrogen or progesterone is given to patients to balance their levels, whereas sometimes testosterone may also become a part of it. Creams, tablets, patches, vaginal rings, gels, or injections are the most common ways used during the HRT process. The way of delivering HRT varies from patient to patient depending upon the situation and medical condition of this disease. HRT is not a long term solution as doctors doubt its credibility over maximum 2 years of usage.
