Infertility Homeopathic treatment

You've been trying for months, and still there's no baby on the way. Inability to conceive can accentuate stress on your marriage, have an impact on your self esteem, and even challenge your womanhood. Infertility is elucidated as failure in getting pregnant after a year of persistent trying or having repeated miscarriages or inability of a man in impregnating a woman. In order to have a baby an egg must be unconfined from a woman’s ovary and pass through a fallopian tube towards the uterus, a man’s sperm must unite with the egg along the way, and the fertilized egg must affix to the inside of the uterus. Problems that hinder any of these steps either in a man or woman can conclude in Infertility.

About 1 in 7 couples can have some problems conceiving a baby. However, over 8 in 10 couples having regular sex (every two to three days) will conceive within one year if the woman is aged under 40 years. In addition, of those couples who do not conceive in the first year, about half will do so in the second year.

There are various causes of infertility, both in men and in women. However, there will be no reason found for the infertility in about 3 in 10 cases. In around 4 out of 10 cases disorders are found in both the man and the woman.

Some reasons are easier to treat than others. This leaflet gives some general advice for couples trying to conceive and outlines the reasons why some couples have problems.

Male Infertility understanding

In the past, fertility specialists concentrated mainly on the woman when pregnancy failed to occur and was blamed wholly and solely on woman. May be this was because the male psyche equated fertility with virility and considered, failure to father a child with shame. Studies today however show that male infertility is increasing in frequency and 40 % of infertility emanates directly from man. Infect the number of sperm that men are producing has dropped by almost half during the last 40 years, according to several studies. The implications in the sperm decline can have far reaching effects for further generations. The vast majority of men have simply no way of judging their fertility before getting married.


Some man may know that they have a fertility problem: for example- they may suffer from sexual problem of impotence, which prevents consummation of the marriage. The most important test is a simple & inexpensive “Semen Analysis” and for a semen analysis a fresh semen sample not more than half an hour old is needed, after sexual abstinence for at least 2 to 4 days. If this test is done badly by poorly trained technicians in ill-equipped laboratories, its results can be very misleading. If the sample has less than 20 million sperm per ml, this is viewed to be a low sperm count, and less than 10 million is considered very low and this deficiency is called’ ‘oligospermia’. Some men have no sperm at all and this deficiency is identified as ‘azoospermia’. Semen in these patients looks absolutely normal it is only on microscopic examination that the problems is detected. Then it is find out whether the sperm is moving well or not- i.e. sperm motility. Normal shape of the sperm is also taken into account. During ejaculation the semen spurts out asaliguid which gels promptly. This gel liquefies again in some 30 minutes so as to allow free motility to the sperm. If the gel is in thick consistency or fails to liquefy this indicated a problem normally one of infections of the seminal vesicles and the prostate.

The presence of sugar called fructose is also considered. This sugar provides energy for sperm motility, and its absence points to a block in the male reproductive tract.

There are a variety of factors that may affect sperm production and male infertility. These include:

  • Current or past infection of the testes (eg, mumps).
  • Tumours of the testes.
  • Testes that haven't dropped (descended) properly.
  • Side-effects of some medicines and street drugs. These include: sulfasalazine, nitrofurantoin, tetracyclines, cimetidine, colchicine, allopurinol, some chemotherapy drugs, cannabis, cocaine and anabolic steroids.
  • Although there is an association between an increased scrotal temperature and reduced semen quality, it is still uncertain whether wearing loose-fitting underwear actually improves fertility.
  • A varicocele may possibly affect male fertility. A varicocele is common and is like a varicose vein in the scrotum (the skin that covers the testes). Varicoceles are found in just over 1 in 10 men with normal sperm and 1 in 4 men with abnormal sperm. See separate leaflet called Varicocele for more detail.
  • Certain hormone problems (eg, problems with the pituitary gland in the brain leading to Cushing's disease or hyperprolactinaemia.


Male infertilty causes & natural homeopthic way to increase sperm

Researchers opinion that toxic chemicals in our environment are one the causes for declining sperm counts. And occupation hazards are also causes low sperm count. People become contaminated with the toxic chemical via food chain. Due to the increasing use of synthetic pesticides & chemical fertilizers. And those who are working in places, where is much exposure to heat or chemical oriented industries are much prone to declining sperm count. However there are more than environmental and occupational hazards that threaten male infertility. Some common medications prescribed by doctors in modern medicine have shown the same disastrous effects as toxic chemicals in declining sperm counts, besides this to much of coffee, cigarette, marijuana drugs & alcohol also the culprits for male infertility. Beyond semen analysis, there is anti sperm anti bodies test, semen culture test, post coital test & bovine cervical mucus test thus it go on endlessly. Some men posses antibodies against the sperm, which immobilizes or kill them and prevent them from swimming up towards the eggs.

Homeopathic system of medicine successfully treats all time inabilities by activating the body mechanism to increase the sperm count & sizes motility of semen etc.

Besides this venereal diseases those communicable through intercourse are also affects male infertility. Impotency is the main culprit of infertility. These all can be treated and cured successfully. In modern medicine medical treatment for male infertility does not have a high success rate and has unpleasant side effects. This simply reflects the modern doctors' ignorance about what causes it, and their knowledge about how to treat it is even more pitiable. Thus the main cause for male infertility are low sperm count, blockage & other impairments due to diseases & injury and sexual dysfunction such as impotency.

Female infertility


 Normally, one of the ovaries releases a single mature egg every month. Women may experience pain or abdominal discomfort at the time of ovulation and occasionally have some slight vaginal bleeding. The presence or regular periods, premenstrual tension and period pains usually indicate that the menstrual cycles are ovualtory. Eggs are stored in the ovaries in a very immature form. In this state they are not capable of being fertilized by a sperm until they undergo a maturing process which culminated in their release from the ovary at the time of ovulation. Egg maturation & ovulation are stimulated by two hormones and luteinzing hormone. These two hormones must be produced in appropriate amounts through out the monthly cycle for normal ovulation to occur.

After ovulation has occurred, the follicle from which the egg has been released forms a cystic structure called the corpus luetum. This structure is responsible for producing progesterone in the second half of the cycle. Most women who fail to ovate or whose ovulation is abnormal usually have a disturbance in their menstrual pattern. This disturbance may take the form of complete lack of periods (amentorrhoea), irregular or delayed periods (oligomenorrhoea) or occasionally a shortened cycle due to a defect in the second part (luteal phase) of the cycle.

Female infertility Reasons

Abnormal ovulation: -

Abnormalities of ovulation may appear in several forms. Menstrual cycles shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days are often associated with the absence of ovulation. In addition, patients may skip menstrual periods for time intervals of three months or more and this called oligomenorrhoea or infrequent periods. If the periods stop entirely, such a condition is called a menorrhoea. Many hormonal system work together to produce regular menstrual periods, and the blood levels of the hormones that make up these system need to be tested in order to determine the reason for the ovulatory disorder.

  • There are various causes of ovulation problems including:
  • Early (premature) menopause.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This can also cause excessive hair growth, acne, and period (menstrual) problems, and is associated with being overweight (obesity). See separate leaflet called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome for more detail.
  • Hormone problems - for example, too much prolactin hormone. This hormone is produced by the pituitary gland that lies just beneath the brain and helps with milk production. Too little or too much thyroxine hormone (produced by the thyroid gland in the neck) also affects fertility.
  • Being very underweight or overweight. This can affect your hormone balance which can affect ovulation. In particular, women with anorexia nervosa often do not ovulate.
  • Excessive exercise (such as regular long-distance running) can affect your hormone balance which can affect ovulation.
  • Long-term (chronic) illnesses. Some women with severe chronic illnesses, such as uncontrolled diabetes, cancers and kidney failure, may not ovulate.
  • A side-effect from some medicines is a rare cause. Medicines that sometimes cause this include chemotherapy medicines. Some street drugs such as cannabis and cocaine can also affect your ability to ovulate.
  • Various other problems with the ovary such as certain genetic problems. Genetic means that you are born with it and it is passed on through families through special codes inside cells called genes.


Fallopian tube, neck of the womb (cervix) or womb (uterine) problems

These are the cause in about 2 in 10 couples with infertility. Problems include: 

  • Endometriosis, which causes about 1 in 20 cases of infertility. See separate leaflet called Endometriosis for more detail. Tissue that normally lines the womb (uterus) - called the endometrium - is found outside the uterus. It is trapped in the pelvic area and can affect the ovaries, uterus, and nearby structures. It often causes lower tummy (abdominal) pain and/or painful periods.
  • Previous infection of the uterus and Fallopian tubes (pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)) is another common cause. Chlamydial infection can be a cause of PID. PID can cause scarring and damage which can affect fertility. For example, scar tissue may block the egg (ovum) from travelling down the Fallopian tubes. See separate leaflet called Pelvic Inflammatory Disease for more detail.
  • Previous surgery to the Fallopian tubes, cervix or uterus.
  • Large fibroids, which may also cause problems, although this is debated by some experts. A fibroid is a benign (non-cancerous) growth of the uterus. See separate leaflet called Fibroids for more detail.

Secondary Infertility:

Secondary infertility is generally defined as the inability of a couple to conceive after a year of unprotected and appropriately timed intercourse when one or both partners have previously conceived children. Both male and female factors may be involved and in about one-quarter of the cases the cause is multi-factorial.

The most prevalent cause of secondary infertility may be age. Much has been written about aging and women’s fertility. Women are born with all of the oocytes they will ever have and female fertility peaks in the mid-twenties to mid-thirties. Menopause, of course, occurs when there are no more oocytes. The decrease in fertility by 35 years of age is marked. By age 40 the spontaneous pregnancy rate is significantly lowered and at age 45 the chances of natural conception with unprotected and well timed intercourse are, at best, approximately 6% per cycle. Older oocytes (eggs) have been around longer and have been exposed to more environmental factors which may contribute to a decrease in egg quality. Single gene mutations may be responsible for spontaneous interruption of early pregnancies therefore it is not surprising that along with the decrease in natural pregnancy rate comes an age related increase in spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) rate. When one also considers that many spontaneous abortions occur before a woman even knows that she is pregnant it is easy to see why female age is a significant factor in the etiology of secondary infertility. Less has been written about male age and fertility. Men, after all, normally go on producing new sperm throughout their adult life. Newer studies, however, have shown a decrease in both the quality and quantity of sperm produced by older men. Thus paternal age is no longer an insignificant factor to consider.

One factor that occasionally contributes to the creation of a secondarily infertile couple is the introduction of a “new partner”. A female or male who has previously successfully conceived may become secondarily infertile with a new partner. Successful conception relies upon the production of healthy sperm and oocytes that meet and fuse in a supportive environment. Interruption of any step along this complex pathway may result in infertility. In women, tubal blockage and abdominal adhesions are responsible about one third of the time for the diagnosis of infertility, ovulatory issues (anovulation, premature ovarian failure, ovulation irregularities) are responsible about 25% of the time though this, as previously mentioned, increases significantly with age and uterine factors (including endometriosis, a condition where uterine tissues are located outside of the uterus) are thought to be a contributing factor in approximately 30% of. Once again, it is important to remember that there may be multiple etiologies in the same couple and that many of these etiologies may develop after the first successful conception. In men, acquired defects in spermatogenesis, blockage in the semen delivery system and impotence are the primary contributing factors to infertility. Some of the causes of these problems are relatively reversible and easy to correct others less so.

Proper weight and good nutrition are important. Obesity interferes with ovulation as does excessively low body fat percentages. Tobacco use leads to decreased fertility via several different mechanisms. The use of alcohol and recreational drugs can not only decrease the quality of gametes (oocytes and sperm) but also impair judgement leading one into situations where other fertility challenging issues may arise.

Multiple sexual partners increase the risk for sexually transmitted infections (STI’s). STI’s may cause decreases in fertility due to inflammation and scarring in the reproductive tract (pelvic inflammatory disease in women, epidydimitis in men). Some STI’s have a relatively silent presentation. All suspicious signs or symptoms (pelvic pain, abnormal discharge, pain or burning on urination) should be promptly evaluated by the appropriate health care professional. Stress has definitely been shown to increase infertility rates; conversely faith, hope, prayer and support groups have all been shown to increase fertility rates.

Causes of Infertility:

Infertility causes male & female

Several essential causes that affect male and female fertility:

• Women beyond the age of 30 become less fertile.

• Hormonal imbalance.

• Absence or irregular menstruation.

• Wrongly timed intercourse.

• Alcohol and smoking.

• Anxiety.

• Excessive exercising.

• Being overweight or underweight.

• Extensive use of contraceptive pills.

• Exposure of the genitals to high temperatures from persistent use of hot tubs or saunas.

• Exposure to environmental and metal toxins like certain pesticides and lead.

• Certain drugs like steroids, antifungal medications, radiation, chemotherapy treatments and heavy use of cocaine or marijuana.

• Blocked Fallopian tubes, Uterine Fibroids or Endometriosis.

• Inherited abnormalities in the structure of the Uterus or Ovaries.

• Diseases like Diabetes, Thyroid problems, Hypertension, Genital infections, Sexually transmitted diseases, Prostrate inflammation, Mumps after puberty.

• Undescended testicles or testicular injury in male.

• Premature ejaculation in males.

• Low sperm count or abnormally shaped sperms in men.

Self Care Measures:

  •              Men should not wear tight under wears or pants as this lessens the number of healthy sperm.
  •              Avoid using hot tubs or saunas.
  •              Avoid excessive exercise, smoking, alcohol, caffeine.
  •              Eat a balanced diet and follow weight management.
  •              Practice safe sex to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.
  •              Cold sitz bath can lower your body temperature and encourage the production of healthy sperm.
  •              Estimate your fertile period by tracking your ovulation at home. The date of ovulation varies in every woman but normally ovulation is 14 days before the next menstrual period starts, and five days before ovulation is the most fertile period in a woman. Have sexual intercourse each day of your fertile period, including ovulation day.
  •              Avoid straddling your male partner while making love. Positions where sperm is not likely to leak out are the best. Placing a pillow under your hips during or after making love allows your cervix to rest in the semen allowing sperm some time to travel to the cervix.


Hence, to enjoy a healthy family life and to increase your chances of a natural pregnancy by cleansing, strengthening, balancing the organs of reproduction and bringing the body back into balance consider Homeopathy.
