Baby's health: Rh factor typically does not affect fertility, but it can affect a woman's secondary and beyond pregnancies if she is rh negative and her partner is rh positive. The baby inherits the positive trait and those rh+ proteins can get in the mother's blood. Her body then makes antibodies against this protein. The next time she gets pregnant, the antibodies can attack the fetus. Rhogam shots can prevent. ...Read more
Does short term use of mefenmaic acid 250mg cause infertility in females or when you stop taking does your fertility get back to normal?
Cause of Infertility: I recommend you consult with your gynecologist. There is a strong corelation between endometriosis and infertility due to the scar tissues. A thorough gyno history interview and exam will enable your doctor to advise you of your probability of infertility and perhaps recommend the window of opportunity to succesfully conceive and have a healthy baby or babies. ...Read more

I want to ask about sperm fertility my sperm colour is some transparent and some white so is this a problem about sperm infertility or not?
If I want to go to a fertility clinic, do I need to bring my partner with me? Or can I just go in by myself just to see if I am not infertile.
Neither: We can't judge fertility based on vaginal discharge or cervical mucus; the vagina normally is lubricated by glands and discharge is normal, unless it's not. Many vaginal infections can cause discharge, so if you're concerned about infection see your Gyn. The character of cervical discharge does not indicate fertility or infertility ...Read more
Is there a difference between a fertile sperm and infertile sperm? I mean the shape and the viscosity
Here are some...: The significance of sperm shape and semen viscosity has evolved & changed over the decades especially over the past 10-15 yrs. Currently, normal sperm shape appears in only about 4%, and semen is expected to liquefy in 30 minutes; if not, high viscosity is considered but its significance remains unknown. For infertility, make sure both parties need to be simultaneously evaluated and counseled. ...Read more
My husband has secondary infertility azoospermia. Sco on biopsy. Does he have better odds with tese with prior fertility?
Perhaps: It is unusual but not unheard of to get sperm from men with sertoli cell only syndrome. The fact that he has fathered pregnancies suggests the possibility that there may be small areas of sperm production. A urologist who specializes in male fertility an has expertise in microsurgical tese may have some chance for success. ...Read more

Does clear semen mean I'm not fertile? I have had sex with my fiance and all times my semen has been clear, im 18 and we would like to have children in the future but i'd like to know if clear semen means im infertile
A couple of friends (both under 35, non-smokers, and in reasonably good health) have failed to conceive after 2 years of trying. A fertility clinic found no physical infertility issues. What are potential reasons for their failure to conceive?
Several: Basic tests evaluate the fallopian tubes, the uterus, the eggs and the sperm. Often an actual physical exam is not as helpful. Often subtle problems with the uterus are overlooked. If those basic tests are normal, then usually the problem is the actual fertilization of the egg and sperm. Sometimes the problem may be genetically abnormal eggs or embryos preventing implantation. ...Read more
Not enough data: While it's sometime helpful to look at discharge to time your ovulation (discharge is thinner during ovulation), it's not the only information a woman should use to determine ovulation. The easiest is to use an ovulation predictor kit. That will tell you if you're ovulating. Some women rely on taking temperature every day and checking discharge. When there's a spike in temp --> ovulation. ...Read more
Can infertile sperm affect fertile sperm from reaching an egg? My bf is infertile but my fwb is fertile and I have unprotected sex with both.
Probably not: If you have been having unprotected sex for 6 months or more, and you are trying to get pregnant, then an evaluation of both partners is appropriate. If you are sure about the male fertility status with an adequate semen analysis, then you should be evaluated as well. Also, if you are to the point of wanting to start a family, my personal advice is to pick one partner. ...Read more
Why would adults take growth hormone supplements and do they add height in adults? Are they found in fertility meds, Chinese herbs for infertility?
Adult GH use: Hi. I treat adults with pituitary deficiency with growth hormone (GH); they generally feel better on it and restoration of normal levels has physiologic benefits. GH is used off label in non-deficient adults as a "fountain of youth" medicine; shown to be neither safe nor effective in this setting. Too much GH has well established risks. GH is a protein and must be injected (like insulin); no oral ...Read more
Dr. Khurram rehman said I have secondary infertility, so why won't my doctor help me, IV been declined to see a fertility specialist! What do I do now?
Infertility: Dr. Rehman is likely right, secondary infertility is a clinical diagnosis. You need to ask your doctor why he won't help, others cannot tell you this. Often the problem is not the doctor, but the insurance who may have rules or restrictions on coverage. Ask your doctor: if it's an insurance issue, he might help you work it out. If the doctor is the problem, get a new one. ...Read more
Does radiation affect fertility? I heard that patients who go through radiation therapy will have a higher change to become infertile, is this true
Exposure of gonads (testes and ovaries) to radiation can make you sterile. People who undergo radiation often have cancer and receive a lot of chemotherapy which can affect their fertility also. So cancer patients have a higher risk of infertility even if the gonads are not exposed to radiation.
Radiation can also be a hazard if you are a radiological worker but safeguards are in the workplace. ...Read more
What are the symptoms of being infertile from pelvic inflammatory disease? Will being infertile show up on a home fertility test?
No symptoms: You are correct that pid can result in infertiliy. The mechansim by which pid causes infertility is that it can cause tubal obstruction from scarring as the infection heals. It won't show up on any home fertility test. The best way to assess this is an x-ray to see if the tubes are open or not. It can also be evaluated during minor surgery called laparoscopy. ...Read more
Can testosterone replacement therapy cause irreversible infertility? Or will fertility return to normal once you get off trt? Any research articles?
Yes: Yes it can. The longer you use testosterone and the higher the dose, the more likely it will be permanent. That's why you should never use recreational testosterone. If you need testosterone for medical reasons, you can put some sperm into a sperm bank if you think you may need it for conception later in life. ...Read more
My wife is currently getting care from her ob for infertility. We've been trying for 1.5 years and the docs have found nothing wrong yet. Are we making the right decision by sticking with her ob before getting a referral to a fertility clinic? Or shoul
See a specialist: As you've tried for 18 months, I recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist. We used to say that 15-20% of couples had 'unexplained infertility' with regular cycles and normal tests. With modern fertility testing and checking for low egg supply, it's rare that we find zero issues. Rei docs offer more treatment options, and will return your wife to her OB when pregnant. ...Read more

Can using candid B cream on vagina or labia cause infertility? My skin started peeling off a bit. Does this cream affect fertility?
Not likely: Topical anti-fungal cream like miconazole will not affect fertility. There may be small risk for toxicity to embryo and fetus if used during the first trimester because imidazoles are absorbed in small amounts from the vagina. Oral medication of this type should be avoided unless your welfare is at risk from the infection, and the medication is prescribed and closely monitored by your obstetrician ...Read more
Does Anti Tb treatment affect fertility? Can tuberculosis treatment make me infertile? Taking TB treatment for TB neck cervical lymph node.
Fertility specialists, how likely is a 1 cent polyp in uterus to cause 1. Infertility 2. Miscarriage. Please take size of p into consideration w answe?
Fertility for Men: Yes. It depends on the cause of the infertility. If it is due to an infection or venous congestion, these have no proven value. However, certain drugs such as clomid, (clomiphene) can increase free testosterone and thereby increase sperm production. Nutrition centers sell numerous "blends" that purport to do the same thing - I would be very cautious about trying any of these without a doctor's consultation. ...Read more
