Thin Uterine Lining As A Cause Of Infertility

Uterine Lining In Women Over 40 May Cause Problems Getting Pregnancy


Infertility can be caused by many factors other than egg quality.

http://www.getpregnantover40.com
 If the lining of the uterus is too thin, it cannot support a pregnancy. Interestingly, taking some fertility drugs like Clomid can actually cause the uterine lining to be thinner than usual.  An interesting note...when I was going through fertility treatment, they told me that taking baby aspirin can actually help the uterine lining (but that is something to check with your doctor since aspirin can cause other problems.

Sunless Tanning Bad For Fertility

Yes, a little sunlight can help your fertility.  Not only will you be getting some much needed vitamin D, but if you let the sunlight hit your eyes, you may also be regulating your circadium rhythms which can actually help regulate your system, sleep cycles and so on.

However, with all of the talk of skin cancer secondary to sun exposure, many women have opted for sunless tanning lotions.  But wait...these may protect you from skin cancer, but they have chemicals which can negatively affect your fertility.  Read more:

http://www.fertilityauthority.com/blogger/dr-laurence-jacobs/2012/8/01/your-fertility-avoid-sunless-tanning

From the article:

Recently, European health officials issued a warning about these fake tanning products. The warning is for lotions and sprays that have dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient. DHA is a colorless sugar that interacts with the dead cells located in the upper layer of the epidermis, and this causes a color change.
These products are sometimes billed as “safe” alternative for tanning, considering the dangers of sun exposure in increasing the risk of melanoma and other skin cancers. However, sunless tanning products are filled with chemicals. When they are sprayed on the skin, they are often inhaled and may also be absorbed into the bloodstream, resulting in possible DNA damage.
In June, medical experts reviewed 10 of the most current scientific studies on DHA for ABC News and said DHA has the potential to cause genetic alterations and DNA damage. The studies were not on humans, but some found DHA altered genes of multiple types of cells and organisms when tested in different labs by different scientists.
The worrisome chemicals in sunless tanning products include endocrine disruptors such as benzophene-3, carcinogens such as formaldehyde and skin irritants such as diethanolamine. One can surmise that some of the chemicals in fake tan may be toxic to reproduction and may be harmful to a developing fetus, causing birth defects. In addition, the products may have an effect on allergies, diabetes and obesity.

Don't Try This At Home....Well, Maybe

Get Pregnant Naturally With Self Insemination At Home

I keep hearing stories about how couples achieve a successful pregnancy by using home insemination.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
 Although I've never tried it, here is an article that explains the "turkey baster" method (more instructions on the link below):

Babymed.com

 The Turkey Baster Method is the most common way of artificial insemination to get pregnant and have an artificial insemination at home. More often than not you do NOT actually use a turkey baster but a disposable syringe.
You need the following supplies for an artificial insemination at home with a turkey baster:
  1. Needleless syringe or oral medicine syringe (instead of the turkey baster)
  2. Collection cup, baggy or condom
  3. (Optional) Saline without additives or preservatives
  4. (Optional) Tube to attach to syringe
  5. (Optional) Mild germicidal soap

Natural Conception After Removal Of Endometriosis

Getting Pregnant Over 40, Endometriosis May Be In The Way

I have known a number of people who underwent a hysterectomy due to severe endometriosis.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
The condition seems to get worse as time goes on and it is one of the leading causes of infertility and pelvic pain. I also had some endometriosis removed as part of a laparoscopy. This article is about a procedure that can remove the condition surgically but leave the pelvic organs in tact possibly restoring fertility. Read more:

news.bbc.co.uk

From the article:

She had been given less than a 5-10% chance of conceiving naturally due to the severity of her endometriosis, had been in pain for 20 years and had five procedures to try to alleviate the condition.

"She had been told a hysterectomy was the answer," said Mr Trehan.

But Mr Trehan, who also carries out the surgery for the NHS in Dewsbury, was determined to help preserve Clair's future fertility.

"Surgery for endometriosis is the most difficult and complex gynaecological operation to perform as it can adversely affect the bowel, bladder, ureters [tubes that carry urine from kidneys] and large pelvic vessels," he said.

Surgical answer

He added that in his own practice he advocated a radical approach to avoid the endometriosis recurring and leading to a hysterectomy.

"While pelvic peritoneal excision surgery is an effective surgical option for treating endometriosis, it has up to a 40% recurrence rate and often results in removal of the ovaries and womb [hysterectomy].

"Total pelvic peritoneal excision, which I advocate, is an extension of the above excision technique where the entire skin of the pelvis is removed.

PID: PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE AND INFERTILITY

STD's, Infections and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

I've frequently heard the term PID or pelvic inflammatory disease. Basically, PID is an umbrella term for pelvic infections and the associated scarring and damage to the pelvic structures. Many of these infections can cause infertility by causing blockages which prevent pregnancy.  Many infections are related to sexually transmitted diseases (STD's).   Here is an article that explains more:
_____________
SEE ALSO: INFERTILITY MISCARRIAGE AND ENDOMETRISOSIS (getpregnantover40.com)
___________

"Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is infection of a woman's reproductive organs. Infection spreads upward from the cervix to the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and surrounding structures.

Bacteria can infect the fallopian tubes and cause inflammation. When this happens, normal tissue can become scarred and block the normal passage of an egg. You may become infertile (unable to become pregnant). But if your tubes are partially blocked, an egg may implant outside the uterus and cause a dangerous condition called an ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy can cause internal bleeding and even death. Scar tissue may also develop elsewhere in your abdomen and cause pelvic pain that can last for months or years.

The 2 most commonly involved bacteria that cause PID are those of the sexually transmitted diseases gonorrhea and chlamydia.
PID can cause a wide variety of symptoms. Some women can be very ill and have severe pain and fever. Others can have no obvious symptoms or even appear ill. Thus, PID is not always easy to diagnose. But it is important for you to seek medical attention if you have any risk factors for PID or symptoms of PID.

HSG HYSTEROSALPINGOGRAM MAY ACTUALLY HELP FERTILITY

 HSG: Can It Clear Fallopian Tubes?

If you've been struggling with infertility and have seen a doctor, you've probably heard of an HSG. This is a procedure where dye is injected through your cervix and uterus and viewed radiologically to see if your fallopian tubes are open or blocked.
One interesting aspect of this procedure which is primarily diagnostic in nature is that sometimes the dye itself as it's going through the fallopian tube can clear out blockages. It is thought that some women get pregnant as a result of the procedure (although I've read this is somewhat controversial): Read more:

For more on getting pregnant naturally, visit: www.getpregnantover40.com

The Hysterosalpingogram Procedure
The HSG procedure is typically performed in the radiology department of you local hospital. It is an outpatient procedure, which means that you will be able to go home immediately following the test. The procedure itself is relatively quick - it only takes about five minutes to actually perform - however, you may be asked to answer some questions before the HSG test begins. The HSG procedure is performed as follows:

You lie on an examination table and bring your knees up to your chest. You allow your knees to fall outwards, towards the table.A speculum is placed in your vagina, in order to expose your cervix.
A thin catheter is inserted through your cervix and into your uterus.
Dye is slowly released through the catheter into your uterine cavity.
X-rays are taken as the dye flows into the fallopian tubes and spills out into the abdominal cavity.
You will be asked to turn on to your side, so that further x-rays can be taken

FERTILITY AFFECTED BY TIGHT CLOTHES

Help Yourself Get Pregnant Over 40 With The Right Clothing

Tight clothes may get you noticed, but they do absolutely nothing for your health.
 My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
 Tight clothes can lead to endometriosis (or there seems to be a connection between the two) since women who live in cultures with loose fitting garments hardly ever get the condition.

What Is Hostile Cervical Mucus - How Does It Affect Fertility?

Trying To Get Pregnant Over 40, Causes Of Hostile Cervical Mucus

I frequently came across the term "hostile cervical mucus" while I was trying to conceive.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com

 This is when sperm either don't survive in adequate numbers or can't swim adequately through your cervical mucus so they can swim up to fertilize the egg. When I was trying to concieve, and going through fertility treatments, I had something called a "post coital test". This is where you have intercourse the night before and the next morning they check to see how many sperm have survived. Mine was abnormal which is why my fertility treatments started with inseminations (to bypass the hostile environment). I guess I must have corrected the situation through natural means since I conceived on my own. The following article talks about how some simple changes in your diet can help with this condition:

LENGTHEN SHORT CYCLES AND REGULATE YOUR PERIOD NATURALLY

 Lengthening Your Menstrual Cycles and Making Your Period Regular

Probably one big reason some women can't get pregnant is that their menstrual cycles are irregular or they suffer from luteal phase defect when their cycles are too short in the second half.
After I changed my lifestyle and implemented my getting pregnant protocol, I had regulated even more importantly lengthened my menstrual cycles.  I changed my diet signficantly and used natural progesterone cream

SHORT MENSTRUAL CYCLES, LENGTHEN LUTEAL PHASE DEFECT

Luteal Phase Defect:  Fertility Over 40 - Pregnancy Over 40 and Short Menstrual Cycles

The Time Between Menstrual Periods

I hear from many women who have questions about short menstrual cycles. According to my gynecologist, there is a lot of variability in cycle length, however a cycle is considered too short if is less than 3 weeks between the time between when one period starts and when the next one starts.

If you're over 40, your cycle length may get shorter

 As women get older, typically, cycle length gets shorter, probably due to weaker hormone production.
See Also: (www.getpregnantover40.com) for my video on lengthening and strengthening your menstrual cycle and more ways to balance hormones naturally 
If you are trying to conceive this can be problematic because you may not be able to sustain a pregnancy since your hormones are falling too fast.   When I first started trying to get pregnant, my progesterone was referred to as a "ski jump"  It rose fast, but then fell too quickly.   Also, according to my gynecologist, extremely short cycles could be an indication of another underlying problem.  When I was trying to concieve, I did have some variability in the length of my cycles. As I got older, my cycles got shorter and lighter (sometimes as short as 21 days).

Lengthening Your Menstrual Cycles

I was able to lengthen my cycles after implementing what I call my "pregnancy protocol".   This involved hormone regulating foods and natural progesterone cream...Click here to read full article (getpregnantover40.com)

How Some Couples achieved their Pregnancies

 Have A Baby Over 40, Different Paths To The Same Outcome

Fertility treatments are so emotionally and financially draining.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com

  Some couples need to find different ways to achieve their goal.  The following article talks about the steps some couples took to get pregnant - some involve assisted reproduction and others involve natural means:

From the article:

The crippling cost of IVF treatment can be a devastating blow to couples who are still often reeling from the news that they are infertile.
With private clinics charging up to £7,000 for just one attempt, those desperate to start a family may be torn between the stress of getting in huge debt and abandoning their dreams of becoming parents.
More than 45,200 women in the UK had IVF in 2010. But there are thousands more wanting the treatment who are ineligible to have it on the NHS and yet cannot afford the fees, which were branded “exploitative” by fertility pioneer Lord Robert Winston.
Here we speak to three women who had to find ways around costly IVF.
