Male Infertility - Causes and Diagnosis

Reproduction is a simple and natural experience for most couples. But reports shows that in case of some couples it is very difficult to conceive. Approximately 15 percent of couples are infertile. It means they are not able to conceive a child even though they have had frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse for a year or longer.In about half of these couples the problems are arising due to male infertility.

      This could be because of low sperm production, abnormal sperm function or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Also illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems, lifestyle choices and other factors may lead to male infertility. However the main causes of male infertility can be classified in to either problems in manufacturing sperm or problems in getting sperm outside of the body (ejaculation of viable sperm).

The diagnosis starts with comprehensive semen analysis in order to analyse the sperm problems. This test will evaluate the semen against fertility standards. A further evaluation involving a blood karyotype will further assist to determine if there is a genetic abnormality in the male causing lack of sperm manufacturing. After a thorough history and physical examination of the male partner, the specialist might perform an ultrasound of the testicle, a dye test (vasogram) of the male reproductive tract, and possibly a biopsy of the testicle.

Treatment of male fertility can differ with respect to condition of the patient. Treatment option varies from intrauterine inseminations to in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

The inability to conceive a child can be stressful and frustrating, but now a days there are lots of possible diagnosing methods to treat male infertility. At ARMC, we take the time to listen, to find answers and to provide you the best care.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) As An Alternative to Infertility Problems?

Modern medicine has grown in leaps and bounds over the last century, but perhaps the biggest accomplishment of modern medicine is In Vitro fertilization (IVF), which has literally brought new life to millions of childless couples and families. It can be claimed to be the greatest gift of science because of several environmental, social and biological reasons like pollution, stress, and low sperm motility prevent couples from experiencing parental joy.

The IVF cycle consists of the following five steps:
This is the first step involved in IVF which takes 8 to 14 days. Using fertility drugs to stimulate the woman's ovary to produce more than one egg, which is usual for normal ovulation. IVF is usually done with multiple eggs because not all eggs develop normally on fertilization, or fertilize at all. Ultrasounds and blood tests are done to find out if eggs are ready to be retrieved.

When the eggs are ready, transvaginal ultrasound aspiration, a surgical procedure, is carried out to locate mature follicles and remove eggs using suction. Laparoscopic surgery can also be performed to remove the eggs.
In this stage, the eggs are examined to determine which stand a viable chance of fertilization and these are then kept in a culture medium for insemination. Meanwhile, the best sperms are separated from the man's semen and added to the eggs in the incubator.
In a few hours, a sperm penetrates an egg; usually the physician confirms fertilization the next day by formation of pronuclei- two of these unite to form zygote which divides to form embryo. The embryo reaches 2 to 4 cell stage in two days after fertilization, 6 to 10 cell stage on the third day and after five days forms the blastocyst. The blastocyst consists of cells with fluid cavity which ultimately lead to foetal tissues.
The embryo is placed in the uterus at this stage. The embryo is placed in fluid and drawn into a catheter, using which it is inserted into the vagina of the surrogate, through the cervix, into the uterus. If the embryo transfer is successful, i.e., the embryos attach to the uterine wall, the surrogate mother will test positive in pregnancy test.
IVF is a very successful medical procedure but you should ahead with it after getting consultation from a medical expert. This would act as your best guide to achieve successful conception.
IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) is less than other countries. Asian Reproductive Medicine  
Center, Kozhikode is one of the best fertility clinic in India.

Preimplantation Genetics Disease Treatment Kerala India

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a technique that enables people with a specific inherited condition in their family to avoid passing it on to their children. It involves checking the genes of embryos created through IVF for this genetic condition.
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis screens embryos before they are transferred to the uterus so couples can make informed decisions about their next steps in the IVF process. Embryos unaffected by the genetic or chromosomal disorder can be selected for transfer to the uterus.
For couples undergoing IVF, preimplantation genetic diagnosis may be recommended when:
  • One or both partners has a history of heritable genetic disorders
  • One or both partners is a carrier of a chromosomal abnormality
  • The mother is of advanced maternal age
  • The mother has a history of recurrent miscarriages

What are the benefits of PGD?

The following are considered benefits or advantages of PGD:
  • The procedure is performed before implantation thus reducing the need for amniocentesis later in pregnancy.
  • The procedure is performed before implantation thus allowing the couple to decide if they wish to continue with the pregnancy.
  • The procedure enables couples to pursue biological children who might not have done so otherwise.
  • The procedure may help reduce the costs normally associated with birth defects.
Asian Reproductive Medicine Center, Kozhikode is one of the top infertility clinic in India. We provide best preimplantation genetic diagnosis at lowest cost.
