Infertility or reproductive problems are often associated with women, but this condition is also as common to their male counterparts. The most common cause of reproductive problems is aging or diseases. But in about 8 out of 10 couples, the causes infertility are either an ovulation problem, fallopian tubes blockages, or weak sperm count.
To determine whether you’re infertile, FlyMedi’s doctor partners will need to know about your health history, medications, sexual history, and how active you're sexual. A sperm analysis is done so as to test the health of the men’s sperm. For women, a physical exam is carried out and this usually includes a pelvic exam –the doctor will also measure her hormone levels and makes sure that she ovulates regularly.
All of the above infertility causes can be treated using infertility medicine, high-tech procedures or both. In men, fertility can be treated with:
Surgery: This method of treatment is the best option if the cause of infertility is a varicocele –widening of the veins in the scrotum – or a blockage in the tubes that carry sperm.
Antibiotics: If they are infections in the reproductive organs, antibiotics are the best method of treatment.
Medications and counseling: Male patients who are infertile because they have erections or ejaculation problems, are recommended to go for counseling and to take some meds.
Hormone treatments: if infertility is caused by a low or high level of certain hormones, then the hormone levels are first measured and treated.
In women, infertility is more likely to be treated with:
Fertility drugs and hormones: This treatment is done so as to help the affected woman ovulate or restore levels of hormones
Surgery: This method of treatment is considered when there is a tissue blocking fertility (such as endometriosis) or fallopian tubes.
