Is it bad or dangerous to have dead sperms inside the testes for a long period of time & not having sex or masturbating until u find a girl to marry?

Is it bad or dangerous to have dead sperms inside the testes for a long period of time & not having sex or masturbating until u find a girl to marry?

No Danger in Buildup: Sperm has a natural life cycle, which means they are born, live for awhile and then die. From there the body breaks them down and they are absorbed. More are made continuously. Dead sperm are cleared quickly. There are no established findings suggesting that infrequent ejaculation leads to any significant disease; some data suggest a lower risk for prostate cancer with more frequent ejaculation. ...Read more

Older, single and I want to have a baby, would artificial insemination or donor egg be the solution?

Older, single and I want to have a baby, would artificial insemination or donor egg be the solution?

It depends.: It depends on what you mean by "older". If you're over 40, and especially over 42, a donor egg may be a best solution. Be sure to see a board certified reproductive endocrinologist who can individualize your care to you, according to your particular age and situation. At our center, we have amazing ivf success rates in women around age 40 using their own eggs! ...Read more

Is it ok to do a at home insemination with a 3cc syringe or would it be to small or short to get the job done?

Is it ok to do a at home insemination with a 3cc syringe or would it be to small or short to get the job done?

Sure: It's not the size of the syringe that matters. Are you just skipping sex and putting sperm in vagina? If so then 3cc is fine. When doctors perform IUI they use an angio catheter to put sperm in uterus, which i will assume you aren't doing at home. But 3cc is fine. ...Read more

How unsafe is it for an HIV positive person to be in contact with a pregnant woman or a baby?

How unsafe is it for an HIV positive person to be in contact with a pregnant woman or a baby?

Depends on "contact": It depends on what you mean by "contact". Regular contact--talking, shaking hands, etc--is not dangerous. Sexual contact however would run the risk that the uninfected person would contract hiv. Hiv is only transmitted through body fluids, so just regular "hanging out" is fine, but anything that involves possible transfer of body fluids (blood semen) would be dangerous. ...Read more

I have a  friend who wants to give me his sperm in a cup to help me conceive is it possible to use sperm in a cup to get pregnant I'm trying to conci?

Here are some...: Apparently, you are attempting a self-directed artificial insemination, which has not well studied and not recommended because of its concerned safety.

Who would you assume to be more possible to father a child? A man with a vasectomy for 10+ years or a man with no vasectomy that used the withdrawal method?

Who would you assume to be more possible to father a child? A man with a vasectomy for 10+ years or a man with no vasectomy that used the withdrawal method?

Unusual question: Vasectomy, if successful (((% are) means that no sperm escape with ejaculate. Sperm aspiration by needle or vasectomy reversal would be required for insemination. Withdrawal method is totally unreliable as sperm can enter vagina in pre-cum which occurs before ejaculation (climax) ; without sensation. Thus withdrawal method frequently results in pregnancy. Post vasectomy pregnancy occurs rarely. ...Read more

Can a person have fallopian tues replaced after both are removed? Is it a successful way to become pregnant or is IVF a better choice?

Can a person have fallopian tues replaced after both are removed?
Is it a successful way to become pregnant or is IVF a better choice?

Sorry, only IVF: If you had your tubes removed and not cut then you can only do ivf. I think you should make sure you know exactly what the surgery was because sometimes, your memory or the way the surgery was described may not match the operation report. However, ivf is very successful and i believe you are 33. We also often can offer refunds for a portion of the cost of ivf if you are not successful. Best wishes. ...Read more

My partner and I have decided we don't want any more children. Is it easier for the man to have a vasectomy or for the woman to get sterilised?

My partner and I have decided we don't want any more children. Is it easier for the man to have a vasectomy or for the woman to get sterilised?

Vasectomy: Vasectomy is a 10-15-minute office procedure. It is much easier, safer, and less expensive than tubal ligation or essure. Essure also is quite expensive, requires a painful confirmatory test, and leaves foreign bodies in the female reproductive tract. I made this video to show the vasectomy procedure and explain my technique in detail: http://youtu.Be/0ni3vxnai58. ...Read more
