WHAT IS INFERTILITY?
Failure by a couple to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. Vital statistics has shown 40% of infertility cases having an abnormality of Male Factors…which is important in Spermatogenesis.
a) Requires 72 to 74 days for germ-cell maturation i.e. Spermatognia to spermatozoa.
b) Most efficient GENESIS at 34 centigrade (93.2 farenheight)
c) Within the somniferous tubules, cells of sertolli sustain and regulate the sperm maturation
d) Leydig’s cells produce TESTOSTERONE
e) Fructose secreted by seminal vesicles shows patency of ejaculatory ducts.
Causes of Infertility…. AZOOSPERMIA
1. Obstruction i.e. Varicocele
2. Congenital absence of Vas Deference
3. Primary Testicular Disorder
Definition: A cystic accumulation of blood in the spermatic cord. It is a most common anatomical abnormality of the veins, especially Pampiniform plexus. Varicocele is mostly found in left sided where Spermatic vein empties in the left renal vein. In short varicocele causes insufficient drainage of the blood from the testes that causes excessive Pooling of the blood resulting into higher intra-scrotal temperature.
Very rarely retrograde ejaculations occur into the urinary bladder in case of…
1) Diabetes mellitus
2) Hodgkin’s disease (prior to retroperitoneal dissection)
4) Neurological dysfunction
HOW TO DIAGNOSE?
? Abstinence of 3 to 4 days is very essential
? Usually 2-3-4 ejaculates should be examined
? Semen should be obtained by Masturbation in a clean sterile glass jar from the lab
? Patient having difficulty in getting samples by masturbation should use SILASTIC CONDOMS – which is free of lubricant and chemical toxins
? Liquification should be at room temperature within 20-30 minutes
NB: The following parameters should be observed carefully:
? Volume (ejaculate) 2-6 ml
? Viscosity..within one hour, liquefaction should take place
? Appearance Gross and Microscopic
? Gross: Opaque or cream coloured
a) 1 to 3 WBC / HPF
b) pH .7to8 (alkaline)
c) Motility (at 1-3 hr) more then 50%
d) Sperm count…. More then 20 million / ml
e) Linear sperm velocity. Clinical correlation of velocity is Unclear.
Morphology Evaluation of sperm structure:
o Male Sperm Factors: 40%
o Ovulatory Dysfunction: 20%.
o Cervical Factors: 05%
o Abnormal Tubal Function: 30%.
o Un-Identified Factors: 05%
Be Careful in taking history.
(Relation of one or both of the testes in the abdominal cavity)
o CRYPATRCHID: A person with un-descended Testis.
o TESTICULAR INJURY
o Exposure to Industrial or Environment Toxins
o Excessive Heat Exposure.
o Acute illness
o Prolonged Fever
o Recreational drug use
o Alcohol intake
1) Anabolic Steroids
2) Exposure to Di-ethyl -
o Inadequate length of Abstinence Prior to analysis.
PHYSICAL EVALUATION IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT
- Decreased Testicular Volume
MALE – INFERTILITY FACTORS

Homeopathy is entirely different in approach from most medical care system based upon a Law of similars in a healthy person will cure the same set of symptoms.
