Can Mono Cause Infertility In Men Or Women
Yes to both: Thyroid dysfunction --- either too much thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism) --- can disrupt the male or female reproductive system by causing changes in sex hormones as well as prolactin. Alterations in sex hormones (testosterone in men, and estrogen in women) and prolactin, can in turn, lead to sexual dysfunction, including abnormal periods, and sexual dysfunction. ...Read more

The first step is to do a semen analysis and if abnormal x 2 to see a fertility specialist or a urologist for further evaluation and possible treatment. Good luck.. ...Read more
Unlikely: Varicella infection can cause a decrease in sperm production in male because of fever but it is temporary. The testicles can be involved directly by the virus and cause testiculitis and possible infertility. In female, it is possible that the ovaries are involved in the course of the disease but uncommon and very unlikely to cause infertility. ...Read more
About equal: In a reproductive clinic it is most common to find contributory factors on both the male and female side of the subfertility problem. Testing is more exhaustive for women and most initial therapy includes treating the woman in some way. Ivf/icsi, for example is used to treat severe male factor, even if the woman is "normal", and that therapy involves extensive manipulation of the woman's system. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: I'm sorry somebody told you this. It's a claim made by people who want to frighten you for their own dark purposes. If a man ejaculates frequently, his sperm count will be lower because there's less absorption of fluid between events. Enjoying your body keeps you comfortable, lets you focus on other things, and teaches you about your mind & body in preparation for adult life. Think for yourself. ...Read more

Maybe,other concerns: While there is some evidence that HIV may affect fertility, it is far from clear that it does. People who get HIV are also more likely to have stis such as gonorrhea and chlamydia that definately do, and HIV drugs can be an issue. The real concern is the risk of transmitting HIV to ones partner and there are assisted reproductive technologies that may reduce that risk. ...Read more
No: Most cases of hypopitiuitarism do not involve the cells that produce puberty signals. Only by measuring puberty hormone levels during the first 3 months of life or around puberty that fertility state can be assessed. A genetic test can also help if it is feasible. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
"immune system" ??: People with compromised immune systems can develop several complications of the virus. The virus itself leads to generalized weakness / fatigue which can be prolonged and may be mislabeled as a weakened "immune system" but generally does't further impair response to other infections. Poor nutrition, stress , lack of sleep and even loneliness are factors that can adversely effect our immune syst ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely: Haven't seen an actual research study in which semen samples from EBV-carrying guys were tested for infectious EBV viruses. Generally, people catch EBV (the mono virus) via saliva. Since kissing generally precedes swallowing semen, in a typical relationship, the virus is likely already transmitted via saliva, long before any semen is swallowed. Thus, no worries about catching mono via semen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lowish neuts, maybe?: Percentages don't give much useful information, and absolute white cells counts are of importance if and only if they're considerably away from the reference range, which is set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. Many folks simply run low-neutrophils for a lifetime without a problem. How do you FEEL? ...Read more
21 female. I've been taking gericomplex for mono, its not making me energised but i grew 3cms taller since i started it. Why?
Diurnal variation?: A 21yo female should have already reached her full growth. The gericomplex is a non factor. A normal individual can vary in their height between 0.8-2.8cm during the course of the day. You are tallest when you arise and thereafter gravity pulls you down. Accuracy between measurements is often less than perfectly reproducible. ...Read more
I had mono at one point in my life will it cause any future problems or should i not worry at all?
Missing info: Mono is a real condition that follows infection by a virus. It is often experienced in childhood where it is mild or young adulthood where it can be more intense & last a few weeks. There is no "chronic mono" that lasts indefinitely. Since you did not provide any description of when this started, how long it has lasted, or other symptoms, it is hard to label it mono. ...Read more
