Extractions: Fertility Over the past twenty years, fertility problems have increased dramatically. At least 25 percent of couples planning a baby will have trouble conceiving, and more and more couples are turning to fertility treatments to help them have a family. What is the cause? From a medical point of view, infertility is believed to be caused by the following factors, and in these proportions. Problem Percentage of cases: Ovulatory failure (including Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) Tubal damage Endometriosis Male problems Unexplained If the mathematics don't add up, it's because many couples experience more than one problem when trying to conceive: for example, you may suffer from endometriosis, but your partner may also have a low sperm count.
Management Of Male Infertility Management of Male infertility. Sergio G. Moreira, Jr., MD. The most important part of the management of male infertility is the correct diagnosis. http://www.duj.com/Article/Moreira.html
Extractions: E-Mail: email@example.com General Considerations While 85% of couples are able to conceive after one year of protected intercourse, approximately 15% of couples are unable to initiate a pregnancy without some form of assistance or therapy. These patients are said to be "primarily infertile." In approximately one-third of these couples, a male factor appears to be singularly responsible, and in an additional 20% both a male and a female factor can be identified. Therefore, a male factor is at least partly responsible for difficulties in conception in roughly 50% of these couples. It has been shown that the longer a couple remains subfertile, the worse their chance for an effective cure. In addition, many couples experience significant apprehension and anxiety after only a few months of failure to conceive. For these reasons, unduly prolonged unprotected intercourse should not be advocated before workup of the male is instituted. Although it has often been recommended that clinical evaluation be delayed until 12 months of unprotected intercourse has passed, we believe that the initial screening of the male should be considered whenever the patient presents with the chief complaint of infertility. This initial evaluation, however, should be rapid, noninvasive, and cost-effective. The most important part of the management of male infertility is the correct diagnosis. The use of standard techniques for evaluating medical problems in general, such as complete history, physical examination, and laboratory tests is essential for this purpose.
Extractions: Semen Cryopreservation: In cases where one's work schedule makes it difficult for the male partner to be available for artificial insemination, semen of good quality can be frozen and stored for up to 6 months. It can then be available as a back-up for intrauterine insemination, at the time of ovulation. The Andrology Lab is registered under CLIA and the New York State Department of Health. All tests are performed following guidelines established by the World Health Organization, in the WHO Laboratory Manual for the Examination of Human Semen and Sperm-Cervical Mucus Interaction

The death rate is about 1 per 2000 ectopics in this country. About 40-50 women die each year from ectopic pregnancy in the U.S. There has been a large drop in the death/ectopic rate since 1970. In other words, it is much safer to have an ectopic than it was in 1970. Risk factors for ectopic pregnancy Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) Rate of ectopic pregnancy in women with previous known PID is increased 6-10 times higher than in women with no previous history of PID.

Hello, my name is Nancy Dunne, N.D. Im a licensed primary care physician in the state of Montana. My specialty is the use of natural medicine to improve the health of my patients. Over the past few years, PCOS and ovarian cysts have become especially relevant to me. My 20-year-old daughter's menstrual difficulties and persistent acne have been diagnosed as aspects of PCOS. This disturbing discovery galvanized me to do research in order to create a safe, effective treatment plan for her. The success weve had with her treatment has been so exciting, and my research has so fascinated me, that Im now reaching out to other women. I want to share my experiences treating PCOS and its accompanying difficulties by using natural therapies. Most chronic health problems, including PCOS and ovarian cysts, result from complex combinations of inherited genetic susceptibility and controllable environmental factors including biochemical, nutritional, behavioral and psychological factors.
