thanks infertility Most experts define infertility as not being able to get pregnant after at least one year of trying. Women who are able to get pregnant but then have repeat miscarriages very early in pregnancy are also said to be infertile. Pregnancy is the result of a complex chain of events. In order to get pregnant a woman must release an egg from one of her ovaries (ovulation), the egg must go through a fallopian tube toward the uterus (womb), a man's sperm must join with (fertilize) the egg along the way, and after all of this, the fertilized egg must attach to the inside of the uterus (implantation). Infertility can result from problems that interfere with any of these steps.

The bowels should remain cleaned and for that, a warm-water enema is given during the period of fasting and then when necessary. This works on intestines and their surroundings like uro-genital system. This is also one of the simple home remedies for female infertility. One of the most effective home remedies you can use to increase your fertility is to keep good track of exactly when you are ovulating. During ovulation, a variety of changes happen to your body, such as changes to cervical mucus, basal body temperature, and levels of luteinizing hormone. For many couples, simply tracking ovulation to maximize your window of conception will resolve fertility problems.

hi...... In women, causes include ovulation or hormone problems, fallopian-tube disorders, and a chemical balance that is hostile to sperm; in men, causes include impotence, low sperm count, and sperm abnormalities. Either partner can have a blockage of the pathways the sperm must travel, often treatable by surgery. Emotional factors may contribute. thanks :lovers:

Seeking a fertility drug as an answer to long-term efforts to conceive is understandable, especially when one sees the biological clock running short on time. The use of Clomid (clomiphene citrate) is usually the drug of first choice, because it can be taken orally at home - rather than by injection - and the side effects, including ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and multiple births, occur less frequently than Pergonal (hMG) and other injectable inducers of ovulation. Unfortunately, many women see Clomid as relatively harmless and often seek its use to facilitate pregnancy, rather than to produce ova from ovaries otherwise incapable of producing them. Contributing to this sometimes casual view about the safety of Clomid is the unfortunate consensus among many fertility specialists that the resulting embryo is facing no risk from the drug because, among other reasons, it is taken only prior to conception. In truth, Clomid has a very long half-life; studies have shown it to be biologically active for up to 54 days after it was last ingested, and that it can accumulate with successive cycles of treatment. The recent (May 2010) study out of the Harvard School of Public Health, reporting that the use of ovulation-inducing drugs (including Clomid) almost doubled the risk of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the offspring, is only one of several epidemiology studies reporting an increased risk of congenital anomalies in users of Clomid. Among others, Reefhuis, et al.(2003) found a 280% increased risk of craniosynostosis; Wu, et al.(2006) found a 10-fold increased risk in spina bifida; and Meijer, et al. (2006) found a 508% increased risk of penoscrotal hypospadias. In a still-unpublished study (currently submitted for publication), the CDC presented the results of its findings from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study at the Teratology Society convention on July 2, 2008. They found a 170% increased risk of anencephaly; a 140% increased risk of limb reduction defects; a 200% increased risk of esophageal atresia; and a 110% increased risk of hypospadias. Each of these studies involved CLOMID. Another important factor that strengthens the argument that Clomid presents a risk to the unborn baby it produces is the fact that it is a CHOLESTEROL REDUCING DRUG, which impairs the ability of enzymes in the body to produce cholesterol, similar to Lipitor and other statin drugs. Most experts in the field will acknowledge the cholesterol is a vital ingredient needed by the developing embryo to form its organs, and in fact is a component of every cell in our bodies. Absent a sufficient amount of cholesterol, an embryo will develop abnormalities. The GOOD NEWS is that with this knowledge, we are in a position to reduce or eliminate a large number of birth defects caused by cholesterol-inducing drugs, such as Clomid. Animal studies have shown that cholesterol supplementation, given along with a cholesterol inhibitor, can eliminate the risk of birth defects otherwise caused by the drug. Clinical (human) studies are needed to validate these animal studies and to establish the optimum level of total cholesterol in a pregnant woman to minimize or eliminate this risk. Such confirmatory studies, however, will only occur when the above risk is openly acknowledged and medical science sufficiently motivated to see that they take place.

Terence, Thank you for your wonderful information on the dangers of Clomid and other ovulation drugs. This underscores the importance of trying diligently to restore fertility naturally, to reduce reliance on these kinds of drugs and their hidden risks. Thank you

Abnormal semen (the fluid containing sperm that is ejaculated during sex) is the most common cause of male infertility. Abnormal semen accounts for 75% of male infertility cases. Some possible reasons for abnormal semen are listed below. Decreased number of sperm. You may have a very low sperm count, or no sperm at all. Decreased sperm mobility. If you have decreased sperm mobility, it will be harder for your sperm to swim to the egg. Abnormal sperm. Sometimes sperm can be an abnormal shape, making it harder for them to move and fertilise an egg. Many cases of abnormal semen are unexplained, but there are several factors that can affect semen and sperm.
