CHLAMYDIA AS A CAUSE OF INFERTILITY

A Silent Epidemic

Guest Post By Eric Daiter, MD

Billboards, television ads, and 7th grade health teachers all proclaim the message of safer sex, yet the U. S. Department of Health and Services estimates that 13 million people become infected with a sexually transmitted disease every year.  According to the Center for Disease Control, Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States with 3 million new cases occurring each year.  This article will talk about signs and symptoms of Chlamydia, how to treat it, and how to avoid it.
Chlamydia is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis and is transmitted through vaginal, anal, or oral sex.  It can also be transmitted to a new born baby as it passes through the birth canal of the infected mother.  50-75% of women infected with Chlamydia show no signs or symptoms and have no idea they are infected, which is why it is sometimes referred to as "the silent epidemic".  Chlamydia, when untreated, can cause pelvic inflammatory disease.  This puts the woman at risk for infertility, endometriosis, and damage to the reproductive system.   Endometriosis symptoms can be extremely painful, and if considering conception, may require infertility treatment.  Common symptoms of Chlamydia include unusual vaginal bleeding or discharge, pain in the abdomen, fever, and painful urination.   In order to diagnose Chlamydia a culture swab must be obtained
Once detected, Chlamydia can be cured with antibiotics.  The most commonly used antibiotics in treatment of Chlamydia are Azithromycin, Doxycycline, Tetracycline, and Erythromycin.  Antibiotics must be prescribed by a physician and are administered orally according to the doctor's specifications.  It is also important to complete your course of medication completely in order to recover from the infection. It may be a good idea to return to your doctor for Chlamydia testing every year, as it is possible to be re-infected with the disease even after treatment.  Abstain from sex while being treated for the disease even if you no longer have symptoms.  You can resume sexual activity once your course of antibiotics is finished.
The risk for transmission is dramatically reduced with the use of condoms with a water based lubricant, such as K Y Jelly.  Petroleum based lubricants, such as Vaseline, should not be used because they break down latex (the material the condom is made of).  The only sure way to avoid becoming infected with Chlamydia is abstinence (not having sex) or monogamy with an uninfected partner.
It is important for partners to discuss their sexual history before having sex and have STD tests done.  Essential to prevention for sexually active individuals is an understanding of sexually transmitted diseases and how they are spread.
Eric Daiter has been sponsored by The NJ Center for Reproductive Medicine, a leading provider of infertility treatment, to write information about endometriosis symptoms.  For more information, please visit www.infertilitytutorials.com

CELIAC AND INFERTILITY: SCREEN AT HOME

Celiac and Infertility

I've written before about how celiac disease can be a cause of infertility and may contribute to miscarriage. Celiac disease occurs when an individual is gluten intolerant resulting in digestive problems, malabsorption and the list goes on. Now you may be able to screen for the often missed disease at home. Read more:

Infertility affects as many as one in six couples in their reproductive years in America. Of those, about 15 per cent are from no apparent cause. At the same time, the symptoms of celiac disease are not always obvious. It may be years before symptoms worsen and the disease is diagnosed, and by then child-bearing years may be over. The Biocard™ Celiac Test Kit, first developed in Finland, gives these couples an easy way to find out if celiac disease is a possible cause for their infertility.

  Celiac disease affects people differently and not all symptoms are obvious. Classic celiac symptoms include diarrhea, stomach pain, weight loss and, in children, delayed growth. For others, the symptoms are subtler, such as such as bloating, or excess gas. Fatigue, weakness, joint pain and migraines -- symptoms typically not associated with the gut -- are also reported, and the diagnosis is often anemia, stress, irritable bowel syndrome or chronic fatigue syndrome. Without treatment, celiac disease increases the risk of malnutrition, osteoporosis (because of poor absorption of calcium and vitamin D), certain digestive tract cancers and other disorders such as Type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease.

COUPLE HIRES SURROGATE, NOW PREGNANT WITH TWINS

Surrogate and Couple Pregnant At Same Time

I usually write about women who get pregnant naturally after IVF or failed IVF, but this story is about a women who hired a surrogate, but also went through IVF at the same time...and it worked in both of them. Why? Maybe it was just luck, or maybe she relaxed enough to make it happen because there was a surrogate as a "back-up". Read more:

Amber is a gestational surrogate. She was implanted last October with embryos created by Misty and Brian.

Indianapolis Dr. William Gentry selected the two healthiest embryos for Amber and four lesser quality embryos for Misty, the hopeful mom.

"Why not both of you try? I mean, who knows?" Gentry said. "I think her thought was, 'Sure, why not? But it's not going to work with me. It never works.'"

Misty was hardly expecting success after failed in vitro treatments and a miscarriage, but she got it with a set of twins from Amber and a set of twins that she is carrying.

"'You were our ace in the hole,' (Gentry) said, and he said, 'Misty was our wild card,'" Amber said.

"The whole idea for people to say, 'Just relax,' I mean, if you could have a relax switch on the wall and turn it off, you would love to be able to do it, but you can't," Misty said.

Amber knew the same emptiness, having miscarried before.

OVERWEIGHT: 35% LOWER CHANCE OF PREGNANCY

Overweight Women And Pregnancy

I'm all for finding natural solutions to fertility problems which is why women should look at all the factors under their control before they jump into the high tech route. Although it's hard for many people to lose weight, it can be done and it may raise your odds of conceiving by 35%. Being overweight can also sabotage your efforts of conceiving if you undergo fertility treatments.   However, weight loss should occur before trying to conceive as the body is also less likely to conceive as weight is declining. Read more:

Obese women were up to 35 per cent less likely to become pregnant and twice as likely to have a stillbirth than thinner patients having fertility treatment, researchers found.

The fatter the women were the less chance they had of having a healthy baby.

Experts warned that overweight women should try to lose weight before undergoing treatment.

More than one in four Britons is now obese and the nation’s weight problem is predicted to continue to increase in coming decades.

Being heavily overweight is known to reduce the chances of conceiving naturally, but the new research is the largest study to detail its effect on patients receiving fertility treatment.

PROCREATION VACATION: GETTING PREGNANT ON HOLIDAY

What is a procreation vacation?

In honor of the Labor Day holiday, I thought I would write about vacations and getting pregnant. I've read and written a number of articles over the years about "procreation vacations" .  It seems like a number of people tend to get pregnant while they are away from all of the stressors in their life.  If you are a couple that has been trying to conceive for one or more years, it almost becomes a job.  You have everything very scientifically planned out and your bodily cycles are monitored like a mission control center.
The  idea behind procreation vacations is that you put your mind and body to rest.  Yes, you still might be trying to conceive, but it is done in a very relaxed way.  There are a number of resorts that actually cater to couples who want to take a vacation for the purpose of getting pregnant

Here is a story of a couple who succeeded in getting pregnant on vacation:

Hughes and her husband, Kemry, went to the Westin at Our Lucaya Grand Bahama Island, where the three-night Procreation Vacation starts at $1,893. They lounged on the beach, swam in the pool, sipped pumpkin soup and enjoyed couple's massages. Hughes and her husband also were also served an age-old Caribbean fertility concoction three times a day: sea moss, the Caribbean's version of Viagra, mixed with evaporated milk, sugar and spices. (She said it tasted like an almond smoothie.)
The chain also offers the package at their resorts on St. John and Puerto Rico.
"My husband and I thought that we would go on the vacation and learn all these nice fertility secrets and we'd be practicing them for a number of months for them to work," said Hughes, 35, who conceived the day she got back from the trip. "We were stunned. There's definitely some truths to the foods and the elixirs." from USA today
