One perfectly-looking guy looks amazingly handsome, adored and popular; with his gifts and talents he just stands out from the rest of the humanity. Should that guy find out eventually that he is not capable of being a father, should that be enough for him to lose the respect and stature he used to enjoy? People of the modern times are cognizant of the fact that personal circumstances like these cannot be used to judge or gauge another person, but that still happens; such circumstance still seem to hound the man till his last days unless he could change these through some remedies.Wonderful developments have been achieved by andrological research which can hopefully address men’s concerns on infertility and many issues on male infertility treatment.
Modern days open up hopes and new chances for struggling men. The male infertility treatment can be invariably managed and approached depending on the findings. In order to treat temporary infertility, lifestyle adjustments are often required. There are three common ways by which treatment are presently done: medical, surgical, and assisted reproduction.
* Medical means treatment of infection, hormonal imbalance and improvement of semen quality using pharmacological interventions. Antibiotics are used to address infection that may cause more permanent damage. Medications to improve seminal quality in terms of number and morphology include: mesterolone, tamoxifen and clomiphene citrate. Moreover, gonadotrophins are used to treat hormonal imbalances.
* In order to clear the obstruction in the male reproductive tubules caused by congenital blockages, infection scars and varicocoeles,surgical removal is usually done. To correct physical abnormalities or to restore fertility after vasectomy, an invasive surgery can be opted for.
* ART or Assisted Reproductive Technology is man’s modern answer to infertility but which requires high-level skill. In cases where the spermatozoa could not reach the egg for fertilization due to structural aberrations like a blockage in the vas deferens or retrograde ejaculation, ART provides the method to retrieve the sperm from where they are abnormally stored to the egg by direct injection to facilitate fertilization. Another popular ART method is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IVF is accomplished by surgically taking an egg from a female ovary, have it fertilized in the laboratory, and then replant it on the female’s womb for normal development.
For one reason or another, treatments may succeed or fail. When every effort fails, it is time to consider: donor insemination or adoption?
