Image: Digestive Disorder Can Cause InfertilityMany couples are told that their infertility problems are unexplained.

When both partners are both is perfect reproductive health but are not able to conceive then it is called unexplained infertility.

One of the major causes of such unexplained infertility can be digestive disorders.

If you have ever suffered from a serious digestive disorder like irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn's syndrome, then it might reduce your chances of conception substantially.

Let us take a look at how digestive disorders or gastrointestinal diseases affect fertility...

With more than 60% of pregnancies being reported as unplanned, a woman's pre-pregnancy diet becomes more important than ever.

According to March of Dimes – an organization dedicated to raising awareness about the causes of birth defects – women in their child-bearing years are lacking in their intake of folic acid.

The vitamin, they say, plays a crucial role in preventing birth defects, as it helps with spinal cord development during the first few weeks of pregnancy – often the time a woman does not yet know she is pregnant. Since the majority of pregnancies are unplanned, it's important that young women pay attention to their eating habits now and follow a well- balanced diet that is rich in folic acid, said Susie Castillo, whose organization, the Grains Food Foundation, is also raising awareness about the benefits of folic acid.

In particular, Castillo stated, because Hispanic women are more likely to have a child born with a neural tube defect, it is necessary that they understand the importance of eating folic acid-rich foods like enriched grains to dramatically improve their chances of having a healthy baby some day. In fact, when asked about the role of folic acid in a healthy pregnancy, 26% of non-Hispanic women said they were not aware that the vitamin can prevent birth defects, compared to 36% of Hispanic women who stated the same.

Most women know they should eat a healthy diet during pregnancy, but diet is equally important pre-pregnancy, explained Bruce Young, MD, Silverman Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU School of Medicine, Director of the NYU Fetal Therapy Program, and member of the Grain Foods Foundation clinical advisory board.

A woman's diet and lifestyle throughout her child- bearing years have a significant impact on her unborn child. Women should have an ample supply of folic acid before conception. I recommend to my patients of child-bearing age that they follow a sensible diet -- which incorporates foods from all foods groups -- and exercise.

Despite a long standing faith in the power of allopathic medication and other conventional forms of treatment, more and more people are now opting for natural forms of remedy.

Natural remedies for uterine fibroids are an alternative form of treatment that is both safe and reliable. Uterine fibroids, also known as fibroid tumors, leiomyomas, or myomas, develop within the uterus.

Women across the globe face this problem in their reproductive years. The popularity of natural treatments specifically for uterine fibroids has risen in the last few years.

Natural treatments for fibroids tend to be much safer compared to conventional medication as they cause little or no side effects. This is because, unlike conventional medication, natural treatments do not interfere with your body's internal mechanism. If you are looking for natural remedies for your uterine fibroids, these are some of the options available to you:

• Herbs - Using herbal treatment for your fibroids helps in balancing the hormonal activity and strengthening the liver, thereby reducing estrogen levels in the uterus. Herbs also help in dealing with difficulties like heavy bleeding and excruciating cramps.

Herbs like vitex, help in lowering estrogen level, while herbs like dandelion root and milk thistle, help in improving liver function. Other herbs like nettle and yellow dock work towards detoxification of the body and help to regulate the heavy bleeding caused due to fibroids.

Image: Fibroids Miracle, by Amanda Leto

• Proper Diet - This is possibly the most fundamental treatment among all the natural remedies for uterine fibroids. A diet rich in saturated fats will cause your liver to be dysfunctional and subsequently increase estrogen levels and cause hormonal imbalances.

A recommended diet would be one which is low fat and high fiber. Therefore, foods like oats, millet and brown rice, fish, nuts, fruits, vegetables, and soy are advisable.

It is safe to avoid dairy products in general. The key factors to ensure are that firstly, your diet is mainly alkaline-forming so as to balance the acidic content in your body and secondly, the food you eat does not overwork your digestive system.

• Aromatherapy - Aromatherapy uses essential oils to increase circulation in and around the pelvic region. This helps in relaxing the uterine muscles and subsequently reduces abdominal cramps.

The essential oils of ginger, rose and marjoram are greatly beneficial for relaxing the body, stimulating circulation and balancing the hormones. These essential oils may also be used in therapies like abdominal compresses.

• Meditation - Stress has become a part and parcel of our daily lives. For women, stress can prove to be a catalyst for uterine fibroids. Stress increases blood pressure and causes hormone levels to be erratic, thus aggravating the growth of uterine fibroids.

Meditation can go a long way in relaxing the body and calming the mind. It also helps you to deal better with the complications that fibroids entail. While meditating, it is important to inhale and exhale slowly through your nostrils only.

• Exercise - Exercises like aerobic dancing, brisk walking, cycling and running help to reduce stress and blood pressure. Exercises also help in stimulating a healthy blood circulation and relieving muscle tension.

This greatly relieves sufferers from abdominal pain associated with menstruation and fibroids. It is advisable to avoid participating in sports like basketball and tennis as they tend to increase the stress levels and, thus, enhance the growth of fibroids.

When using natural remedies for uterine fibroids, it is advisable to utilize a combination of remedies for a wholesome approach to the problem. Thus complementing a proper diet with meditation and exercise will help in dealing with the condition holistically.

Holistic treatments work towards strengthening your body from within and thereby equipping your body with the force it needs to fight diseases in general and fibroids in particular. Natural remedies require some dedication and patience.

It is important to remember, however, that persistently following these treatments will help in curing the fibroids permanently and prevent the condition from occurring in future.

Image: Reduce Chemicals to Increase FertilityWhen you're thinking of starting a family, the last thing you want to think about is whether toxic chemicals will prevent you from doing so.

But with rates of in-fertility on the rise and testosterone levels in decline, we may need to factor in chemical exposures to the future of our love lives.

In-fertility affects one in eight couples in the United States — that's 7.3 million people who have trouble with pregnancy, according to the CDC.

And although it was once thought that in-fertility was a female problem, medical evidence shows that in-fertility is an equal opportunity problem:

One-third of in-fertility is attributed to the female, one-third to the male and one-third to combined factors from both male and female.

Image: Babies. New research suggests that progenitor germ cells in ovaries continue to divide throughout reproductive life, resulting in production of new oocytes with greater depth as animals age.
ScienceDaily (July 26, 2012) — A compelling new genetic study tracing the origins of immature egg cells, or oocytes, from the embryonic period throughout adulthood adds new information to a growing controversy. The notion of a biological clock in women arises from the fact that oocytes progressively decline in number as females get older, along with a decades-old dogmatic view that oocytes cannot be renewed in mammals after birth.

After careful assessment of data from a recent study published in PLoS Genetics, scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital and the University of Edinburgh argue that the findings support formation of new eggs during adult life; a topic that has been historically controversial and has sparked considerable debate in recent years.

After careful assessment of data from a recent study published in PLoS Genetics, scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital and the University of Edinburgh argue that the findings support formation of new eggs during adult life; a topic that has been historically controversial and has sparked considerable debate in recent years.

Eggs are formed from progenitor germ cells that exit the mitotic cycle, thereby ending their ability to proliferate through cell division, and subsequently enter meiosis, a process unique to the formation of eggs and sperm which removes one half of the genetic material from each type of cell prior to fertilization.

While traditional thinking has held that female mammals are born with all of the eggs they will ever have, newer research has demonstrated that adult mouse and human ovaries contain a rare population of progenitor germ cells called oogonial stem cells capable of dividing and generating new oocytes. Using a powerful new genetic tool that traces the number of divisions a cell has undergone with age (its depth) Shapiro and colleagues counted the number of times progenitor germ cells divided before becoming oocytes; their study was published in PLoS Genetics in February this year.

If traditional thinking held true, all divisions would have occurred prior to birth, and thus all oocytes would exhibit the same depth regardless of age. However, the opposite was found -- eggs showed a progressive increase in depth as the female mice grew older.

In their assessment of the work by Shapiro and colleagues -- published recently in a PLoS Genetics Perspective article -- reproductive biologists Dori Woods, Evelyn Telfer and Jonathan Tilly conclude that the most plausible explanation for these findings is that progenitor germ cells in ovaries continue to divide throughout reproductive life, resulting in production of new oocytes with greater depth as animals age.

Although these investigations were performed in mice, there is emerging evidence that oogonial stem cells are also present in the ovaries of reproductive-age women, and these cells possess the capacity, like their mouse counterparts, to generate new oocytes under certain experimental conditions. While more work is needed to settle the debate over the significance of oocyte renewal in adult mammals, Woods and colleagues emphasize that "the recent work of Shapiro and colleagues is one of the first reports to offer experimental data consistent with a role for postnatal oocyte renewal in contributing to the reserve of ovarian follicles available for use in adult females as they age."

Image: Dr. Ali Eroglu, reproductive biologist and cryobiologist at the Medical College of Georgia
A tiny, six-legged critter that suspends all biological activity when the going gets tough may hold answers to a better way to cryopreserve human eggs, researchers say.

Tardigrades, also called water bears, can survive Himalayan heights or ocean depths as long as they have moisture.

When they don't, they produce a sugar, trehalose, slowly dehydrate and essentially cease functioning until the rain comes, says Dr. Ali Eroglu, reproductive biologist and cryobiologist at the Medical College of Georgia.

Tardigrades are not alone in their amazing ability to outlast adverse conditions. A type of brine shrimp, often called a sea monkey, comes back to life with water.

The Baker's yeast Dr. Eroglu uses when he bakes bread with his children does as well. Similarly arctic wood frogs use the sugar, glucose, to tolerate frigid temperatures until the summer thaw.

While humans don't naturally produce trehalose, researchers think they can use it to safely preserve human eggs – and those of endangered species – giving better options to young women facing cancer therapies that may leave them infertile and others who simply want to delay reproduction.

Our hypothesis is when we introduce sugars into cells and into oocytes, we can protect them against freezing-associated stresses, says Dr. Eroglu, who received a $1.2 million grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to continue pursuing his hypothesis. We also hypothesized if we used trehalose, we also could use conventional cryoprotectants, which can be toxic, in lower concentrations to minimize their toxicity while maximizing overall protection.

Pilot data show it works like a charm, at least in mouse eggs. Researchers injected eggs with trehalose, cooled them to liquid nitrogen temperature, thawed them and exposed them to sperm. They got healthy babies at a similar rate to unfrozen controls.

We were very excited, says Dr. Eroglu, whose work has prompted desperate calls from young cancer patients wanting to preserve their eggs. We got very good development rates, then we transferred the embryos to foster mothers and got pups that were completely healthy. In fact, those pups had healthy pups. His limited testing in human eggs indicates they also can be preserved and thawed safely using this approach, however further research is needed to pursue clinical applications.

The NIH grant enables him to use monkey eggs, which are similar to human eggs, to find the optimal mix of sugar, conventional cryprotectants and freezing to maximize egg preservation. Collaborators at Emory University are providing the eggs and at the Georgia Institute of Technology are developing a mathematical model to predict cooling rates while avoiding destructive intracellular ice formation. Dr. Eroglu also is working with the MCG Section of Reproductive Endocrinology, Infertility and Genetics In vitro Fertilization Program to obtain discarded eggs that failed to fertilize.

Dr. Eroglu looks for a better way because current approaches are fraught with problems. Scientists have been freezing human eggs for about two decades but not very successfully. Embryo cryopreservation is relatively successful, but to freeze oocytes, we have to overcome many hurdles, he says. A major problem is the protective, exterior jelly coat of an egg doesn’t freeze well. The jelly coat protects the egg from mechanical stress and serves as a receptor for sperm. Sperm must pass through the coat then penetrate the interior plasma membrane. As soon as a single sperm penetrates, it triggers intracellular signaling that transforms the coat into a hard, impermeable structure and with good reason: if multiple sperm penetrate, chromosomal abnormalities result. Interestingly, traditional freezing, even with cryopreservatives, can cause these problems and more. The jelly coat hardens, making it impossible for sperm to get through the traditional way. You don’t have this issue with an embryo because fertilization already has occurred, Dr. Eroglu says.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection came into use in 1997 to help overcome the hardened jelly coat but other problems persist. Chemical stress, freezing or warming can disrupt the egg's mechanism for dividing chromosomes – babies get half their chromosomes from mom and half from dad – so they don't line up as they should. In addition to hardening the jelly coat, cold stress can change intracellular signaling resulting from sperm penetration. Lipids or fats in the egg can fuse and the membrane can become leaky.

The bottom line is only about 1-5 percent of eggs develop to term after standard cryopreservation techniques, which include a combination of slow freezing in conjunction with low levels of cryoprotectants such as dimethyl sulfoxide, or rapid freezing with more cryoprotectants.

Dr. Eroglu says the sugars, which help protect the natural structure of proteins, enable use of warmer temperatures and fewer cryoprotectants. He uses the tried and true intracytoplasmic sperm injection approach to deliver sugar – instead of sperm - to eggs before cooling. One of his ultimate goals is to design sugars that can easily penetrate the egg’s membrane, but at least for now, tardigrade sugars seems to work just fine in mice.

One of his many hopes is that freezing embryos won't always be necessary, whether it's a human or an endangered species. Rather, eggs and sperm – which have been frozen successfully for decades – can be kept apart until fertilization is desirable. This could preclude the controversy of destroying unused embryos and perhaps the debate over embryonic stem cells, he says.

Eggs, which can reprogram cell function by turning genes off and on, can produce cells that can become essentially anything, Dr. Eroglu says. If he can better understand how they do this, regular body cells might be reprogrammed in a test tube to embryonic-like stem cells for therapeutic use.

Image: Taboo Topic of Male InfertilityWhy does no one talk about male fertility issues?

Things like a low sperm count, abnormal sperm morphology, and sperm motility are just a few of the silent fertility issues that are caused by men.

Many think women hold all the responsibility for getting pregnant. After all, she is carrying the child.

However, the reality is that males contribute greatly to the pregnancy’s success. If the sperm is weak or defective, no matter how fertile a woman is, she will not get pregnant.

Optimal male fertility health depends on sperm quantity, quality, and movement.

Did you know that 20-30% of infertility issues and miscarriages can be related to low quality sperm? Quality of sperm depends upon age, diet, and overall health.

For instance, obesity affects sperm quality in a negative manner, reducing sperm count and movement. Age also affects male fertility. Semen count starts to decline in one’s twenties.

Longevity Herbs is now offering two new supplements intended to boost male fertility issues.

The first is Adaptogen blend, a formula which may increase the quantity of sperm in addition to other benefits such as decreasing stress, anxiety, and fatigue.

Longevity Herbs also now offers a Men's Daily Omega-Complete Plus Zinc formula.

This provides men with folate, zinc, and other vital essential nutrients, increasing their health and strengthening their fertility.

Image: Tea Cup, by saxon, on FlickrABSTRACT OBJECTIVES: The effect of caffeine consumption on fertility was examined prospectively in 210 women.

METHODS: Women reported on caffeinated beverage consumption and pregnancy status monthly. Odds ratios for becoming pregnant were calculated for both high and moderate vs low consumption.

RESULTS: No significant association was found for any of the caffeinated beverages except tea. Drinking one-half cup or more of tea daily approximately doubled the odds of conception per cycle.

CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that caffeine may not be the responsible agent for variation in fertility associated with consumption of the beverages examined.

by Julia Indichova

-- A memoir of hope for the thousands of women struggling with infertility, from one who beat the odds by simply tuning in to her body and tapping her well of sheer determination.

At a time when more and more women are trying to get pregnant at increasingly advanced ages, fertility specialists and homeopathic researchers boast endless treatment options.

But when Julia Indichova made the rounds of medical doctors and nontraditional healers, she was still unable to conceive a child.

It was only when she forsook their financially and emotionally draining advice, turning inward instead, that she finally met with reproductive success. Inconceivable recounts this journey from hopeless diagnoses to elated motherhood.

Anyone who has faced infertility will relate to Julia's desperate measures: acupuncture, unidentifiable black-and-white pellets, herb soup, foul-smelling fruit, even making love on red sheets.

Five reproductive endocrinologists told her that there was no documented case of anyone in her hormonal condition getting pregnant, forcing her to finally embark on her own intuitive regimen.

After eight caffeine-free, nutrient-rich, yoga-laden months, complemented by visualization exercises, Julia received amazing news; incredibly, she was pregnant.

Nine months later she gave birth to a healthy girl.

Image: Frozen Embryos Better IVF Success Rate
For couples trying to conceive using the in-vitro fertilization technique, a new study suggests that using frozen embryos rather than the fresh embryos increased the probability of having a healthier pregnancy and welcoming a baby.

Scientists of the University of Aberdeen including Dr. Abha Maheshwari, studied the data gathered from 11 international studies including 37, 000 IVF pregnancies.

They studied both the pregnancy cases where fresh embryos were implanted into the mother's womb and those where the embryos were frozen.

The researchers found that using stored embryos reduced the risk of bleeding during pregnancy, premature birth, and giving birth to underweight baby by a third.

The risk of the baby passing away closer to the end of the pregnancy was also reduced by one fifth.
