Poor chance: Although men who have CF can enjoy a normal sex life, they are almost always (in about 98% of cases) infertile due to failure of the vas deferens, the tube which carries sperm from the testis to the penis, to develop properly (Kaplan et al, 1968).

PCOS and PID: If you had pid, you may have damaged your fallopian tubes and getting pregnant naturally may be a problem. Therefore, you need to get them checked out before doing anything else. If the tubes are blocked, it may not matter about the other issues as there is a lower chance for getting pregnant. If they are open, then you may need to take medications to get you to ovulate consistently. ...Read more

Infertile? I just recently got my IUD out so me and my fiance could conceive I have been pregnant before and i got an abortion and i also have had chlamydia a few times could those factors cause me to be infertile?
Hello. : Hello. These issues can impact fertility. However, if the iud was just removed, this means that you have not been working very long to become pregnant (and the iud can have an impact as well). It is too early to say you are not fertile. Infertility is defined as not achieving pregnancy after 12 months of having fairly frequent, unprotected sex (or after at least 6 months if over age 35). Suggest that you talk with your doctor about how these issues could impact your desire to become pregnant. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are some natural ways of treating pcos? #nqlu I am a healthy 40 yo female who was diagnosed with pcos by my ob/gyn last november. My husband and i are trying to conceive, and i wasn't getting pregnant. I believe she diagnosed it from my pelvic ultras
PCOS : Pcos is a challenging syndrome to manage. It sounds like your doctor tried all the proven methods to help aid in achieving pregnancy (metformin and clomid). Metformin can be hard on the GI tract, however if the dose is gradually increased this will lead to less GI side effects. You may want to consider this for the future. Clomid also can cause quite a few side effects, mainly hormonal in nature (hot flashes, mood swings, etc.) therefore i can imagine how challenging this is for you, and understand why you took a break. You need to understand that you can't treat pcos, but merely manage your symptoms and try alternative methods to get pregnant. As far as natural things you can do for pcos, the main consensus is a healthy diet and weight loss. The diet should be low in fat, high in fruits and vegetables, avoiding processed foods and maintaining adequate hydration. I can understand why you want to try natural ways of treating pcos but prepare yourself for the possibility that you may need medical treatment in order to get pregnant. The fact that you are 40 combined with the pcos will make getting pregnant a challenge. I suggest you schedule a consult with an infertility specialist to go over all your options. It is always wise to be informed and know what you could potentially be dealing with in the future. I wish you the very best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
