Among many issues plaguing couples, male impotence and sexual dysfunction or female impotence tops the graph.

Infertility generally refers to the inability to achieve a successful pregnancy. Today, Infertility has taken shape into a rising problem in the society. It often turns into a saddest part for the couple, which is to be deprived from the feeling of joy of having a child. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be instrumental in curing your infertility issues.

There are so many factors that can cause or contribute to Infertility such as exposure to toxins, age, body weight, PH imbalance, lack of calcium needed for fertilization etc. Dr. Rita Bakshi of International Fertility Centre suggest some dietary and lifestyle changes can make a tremendous difference in fertility, and often also help with other issues like excess weight, lack of energy, blood sugar problems, skin issues, and insomnia in the process.

If you’ve been struggling with getting pregnant, maybe there are lifestyle changes that you can make. Poor nutrition often plays a major role. Nutrition is the most important factor to be considered when you plan to have a baby. The most effective route to infertility treatment is having proper diet that can greatly aid the body in conceiving and carrying a healthy baby, and are beneficial in overall health and avoid genetically modified foods for at least six months before trying to conceive, and consume a healthy diet rich in nutrients. Maintaining nutritional and healthy food habits is necessary as it will not only enhance the fertility but also is essential for overall fitness.

Any doctor will mention that habits like smoking, drug use, and high caffeine intake can severely impair fertility. A couple’s chance of achieving a pregnancy is reduced if either partner uses tobacco. Smoking also reduces the possible benefit of fertility treatment. Consumption of toxic elements has serious impact on the sperm production, sperm quality and quantity, ovulation process and quality of eggs and overall sex life. It is recommended to quit the intake of such toxic elements.

Sleep plays a vital role in production of many hormones. Scientists say that people having inadequate sleep affects the hormonal balance in the body that is one of the major causes for infertility. Lack of sleep also leads to other factors such as stress, mood swings etc. which are the other contributing factors to infertility. Make sleep a priority and get enough to feel rested, not just awake.
For couples who struggle with infertility can be distressing. If the reasons for infertility are addressed, that little stick might just yield a positive. (IANS)

Household Contaminants May Cause Infertility in Men, Dogs

Environmental contaminants found in home and diet have the same adverse effects on male fertility both in humans and domestic dogs, finds a new study highlighting the decline in sperm quality in both the species over the past few years.

The findings, published in the journal Scientific Reports, showed the chemicals — at concentrations relevant to environmental exposure — have the same damaging effect on sperm of both man and dog.

“We know when human sperm motility is poor, DNA fragmentation is increased and that human male infertility is linked to increased levels of DNA damage in sperm,” said co-author Rebecca Sumner, postdoctoral student at the University of Nottingham, Britain.

“We now believe this is the same in pet dogs because they live in the same domestic environment and are exposed to the same household contaminants,” Sumner said.

For the study, the team tested the effects of two man-made chemicals — the common plasticiser DEHP, widely used in the home (e.g. carpets, clothes, toys) and the industrial chemical polychlorinated biphenyl 153, which although banned globally, remains widely detectable in the environment, including food.

The researchers carried out identical experiments for both species using samples of sperm from donor men and stud dogs, living in the same region.

“This new study supports our theory that the domestic dog is indeed a ‘sentinel’ or mirror for human male reproductive decline. Our findings suggest man-made chemicals, widely used in home and working environment, may be responsible for the decline in sperm quality,” lead author Richard Lea from the varsity noted. (IANS)
