Does long term methadone maintenance cause male infertility? My boyfriend has been on MMT for 8 years and we want kids in the future.
Many causes: Male infertility has many causes and accounts for 40-50% of infertility. If you have infertility then male factors require early diagnosis. The semen analysis is only a small part of the evaluation. See a specialist soon to avoid unnecessary delays. Men benefit from an examination too. Infertility is a couples problem so always consider the partner in the context of treatment. I hope this helps. ...Read more
Many things...: Sperm is produced new in the testicles about every 10 weeks. Over time, things can change. Age can affect sperm over time, as can something called a varicocele. Reproductive toxins in our food, water, air, and workplace can also cause sperm to deteriorate over time. I hope this helps! ...Read more
Maybe.: There are many theories why varicocele may cause reduction in count, motility and normal shaped sperm. Although surgical repair of varcocele may improve sperm parameters there is no evidence that it increase the chance of pregnancy in female partners. The decision to repair varicocele to enhance fertility in men is not supported by strong scientific evidence. ...Read more
I am a 30-year-old man. I have been taking on Lexapro (escitalopram) 10mg for 22 days. Could I use it forever? Does it cause male infertility? Low sperm?
Your doctor to guide:
Anytime you receive a medication from your doctor, you are expected to ask questions about the medication. Did you not have any such conversation?
Anyway Lexapro (escitalopram) is a fairly safe medicine, it will not affect your sperms or fertility. So it can be taken for the long term if needed although most doctors try to stop your antidepressant after the depression has resolved, but some patients need it for ...Read more
Yes: It is estimated that of all couples who experience infertility, 40% are male factor problems, and in another 20% there are problems with both partners. It's not as dire as it may sound though: male 'infertility' doesn't usually mean the couple can't have a child, just that they may need some help. ...Read more
Semen analysis: All male fertility evaluation starts with a semen analysis, and usually ends there. Men needing further evaluation may include consultation with a urologist, scrotal ultrasound, testicular biopsy, and the list goes on. For costs you need to inquire locally because they vary; in our area semen analysis is usually in the $100-$200 range. ...Read more
Reframe question: Only a small number of men benefit from medication to improve fertility. If the man does not have reproductive hormones, then replacement (injections) can allow him to produce sperm. Some men who take steroids have few or no sperm - stop hormones and sperm return. Usually poor quality sperm do not benefit from tablets. See a specialist for more details. Best wishes. ...Read more
1 year, sperm: Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after one year. Male infertility is when the infertility is determined to be caused by problems with the male partner. ...Read more
Semen analysis: Infertility means that you have been trying for a year without success, and male infertility is when that is due to the male partner. Most infertility is not permanent and can be treated. The first step is to have your semen tested to see if there is any issue. Not everyone on dialysis has infertility. ...Read more
Not always: The connection of varicocele and male sub-fertility is not entirely consistent: some men with sub-fertility are helped by varicocele repair, a large majority of men with varicocele never have fertility problems. Expert urologists and res often disagree on specifics, so I recommend in-person evaluation with an expert you trust. ...Read more
Menopausal Bleeding: Vaginal bleeding out of schedule should be evaluated by your physician. Hormonal replacement is safe. The uterine lining may be visualized by fiberoptic (as in the picture) with tissue sampling to rule out polyps and other causes for the bleeding., . ...Read more
Yes. Not a good idea: We can't make your husband do a test he doesn't want to but it's a bad idea to 'skip' testing for him. In couples who aren't getting pregnant after trying for a year or longer, almost half the time there is a sperm issue (40-50%). It could be the only problem or occur along with problems on the woman's side. A semen analysis is a good test to do early on. Most clinics can let him collect at home. ...Read more
It's complicated.: There is significant evidence that sublingual or IM injections of hCG effectively enhance *testicular descent* into scrotum in *children <6yo.* It is not first line treatment, when compared to surgical intervention. Cryptorchidism, or undescended testes, reduces fertility in men, both because of temperature & associated hormonal abnormalities. There is little to no data on hCG usage in adult males ...Read more
