Cell therapy for male infertility
The method of treatment of male and female infertility with the help of own stem cells is directed first of all to the elimination of the reasons which cause the given pathology. When the causes of male or female infertility are related to inflammatory or infectious diseases, immune disorders or permanent stress, the results are excellent.
Infertility is differentiated as a medical diagnosis only when a fertile couple who is not using any method of contraception and has been sexually active for at least one year does not become pregnant. Infertility may be caused by various reproductive system disorders in both women and men, therefore both family members should be examined if there is a suspicion of infertility.
Causes of male infertility
Diagnose male infertility is much easier and faster than female infertility. To do this, there is such a research technique as a spermogram. This is the study of the seminal fluid of the man under a microscope, which determines the activity and motility of sperm. Disorders in the ability of seminal fluid to fertilize are the cause of male infertility. Statistics give an accurate picture that the male factor accounts for 40-60% of infertile marriages.
The most frequent causes of infertility in the male half of the population are:
- Various infectious diseases that are directly sexually transmitted, as well as a variety of inflammatory diseases of the organs of the reproductive system, in particular chronic prostatitis.
- Anomalies and defects in the development of the genitourinary system, various vascular diseases such as varicocele, atherosclerosis.
- Severe infectious diseases that may affect reproductive function - pneumonia, tuberculosis, malaria, typhoid fever.
- a variety of genital trauma and negative environmental effects - radioactive radiation, manganese, phosphorus, mercury, lead and other harmful chemical compounds of organic and inorganic nature.
- Alcohol and smoking, as well as other bad habits, may also be a cause of male infertility.
- A variety of diseases of the endocrine system, constant overheating of the body, especially the pelvic area, prolonged use of various medications, especially cytostatics, antibiotics, anabolics, sulfonamides and hormones.
- Immune disorders, unbalanced, improper diet, excessive constant physical activity and systematic stress.
Most often, infertility is not caused by a single pathological factor, but a combination of several.
A man who eats right, leads a healthy and active lifestyle and has no congenital anatomical or acquired by trauma anomalies of the reproductive system, does not suffer from prostate diseases and urogenital infections, has a fairly high chance of becoming a father.
In Russia, approximately 25% of women suffer from female infertility. In fact, this is a monstrous figure, because it indicates that almost a quarter of the female population of the country, will not be able to have a child.
The main factor of infertility in women, to date, remain various infectious sexually transmitted diseases, unprofessionally performed abortions, surgical intervention in the abdomen and pelvic organs. Most women have a combination of negative factors that cause infertility. Other causes of infertility in women are various violations of the process of oocyte maturation, polycystic ovarian syndrome, adhesions of the tubes and as a consequence of tubal infertility, changes in the cervix and uterus itself, endometriosis, various defects and malformations of the tubes, ovaries or uterus. As well as some genetic reasons and immune system disorders.
Immunological incompatibility of a married couple
Sometimes there are no abnormalities in the health of the man and woman, but pregnancy still does not occur. Then we are talking about immunological incompatibility of the couple.
No matter how strange it may sound, but in 30% of infertile marriages, it is this kind of allergy to the seminal fluid of any particular man. And this allergy can be both a woman and a man develops to his own semen. The cause of this factor is anti-sperm antibodies, a high number of which simply inhibits the function of fertilization, and can be formed in the body, both men and women. Anti-sperm antibodies not only can interfere with the process of conception, but also have a negative impact on the course of pregnancy and provoke spontaneous abortions, fetal retardation, toxemia during pregnancy.
Recent medical breakthroughs have reached unprecedented heights, and the diagnosis of infertility, which until recently was simply a verdict, can now be overcome. Reproductive medicine procedures and technologies make fertility treatment quite varied. A specific technique is developed based on the diagnosis of the patient and the method he chooses for himself the most comfortable.
All modern methods of infertility treatment can be confidently divided into two groups, which can equally be called effective.
The first group of methods is used to make pregnancy possible in a natural way, and the second group focuses on the use of reproductive assistive technology, such as IVF, intrauterine insemination, ICSI, FIVT/HIFT, artificial insemination, hatchling, surrogate motherhood.
Cellular, regenerative therapy
Today the most effective method of infertility treatment for both men and women is cellular, regenerative therapy. The application of stem cells in the treatment of male infertility associated with chronic inflammation of the prostate, leads to a pronounced resorption of various adhesions. This phenomenon lies in the unique ability of stem cells to recreate in the prostate gland a new, healthy network of vessels. This allows to fully restore the function of the receptors, which are located in the vascular walls and prostate ducts, and thereby to stop the prostate tissue stagnation. The result of the treatment with own stem cells in male infertility is a significant improvement of sperm parameters and restoration of all functions of the endocrine system.
Thanks to the cell therapy, the result of the treatment of female infertility is a significant improvement of the nervous and endocrine systems. As well as elimination of adhesions in reproductive organs and restoration of fertility. The function of the ovaries is greatly activated, and the mucous membrane of the uterus is completely normalized and restores its function. Also, the use of cell therapy is quite important in preparing a woman for IVF procedure, significantly reducing the percentage of any complications
