Life style and causes of male infertility

By Dr. A.H. Serdar
One of the realities that some married couples have to face is their inability to have children. While infertility may be blamed on women, the dilemma can also be due to the sperm problem of men. Fifty percent of fertility troubles that couples experience are cause by a difficulty with male fertility.  Sperm production can be affected by different causes, such as testicular factors, sperm morphology, sperm motility, genetic defects, trauma, different kind of infections, and emotional stress. Various infertile men are worried about their small number of sperm count, and this seems to turn into the major anxiety in their life. According to the World Health Organization[1], “if a man’s sperm count is less than 20 million per milliliter, he is considered at risk of being infertile.” People’s life styles play extremely significant roles in their marital time and in successful pregnancies.

Untreated Gonorrhea

By Dr. A.H. Serdar

 There is a large reservoir of asymptomatic and untreated gonorrhea infection in the world, which sets up question about their clinical signification and possibly their complication. This disease is caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhea and spread through sexual contact. In first step the bacteria can infect the soft integument covering the openings of the body like the urethra, anus, vagina, throat, cervix, and also can pass from mother to infant during delivery. Males infected with gonorrhea will have burning and sometimes searing while urinating, besides will appear a yellowish white discharge from the penis. Women who have gonorrhea may have no symptoms or their symptoms possibly so mild. In some cases, women will perceive a burning sensation when they urinate, or they will observe a yellow-green vaginal discharge. In men symptoms usually emerge two days to one week after contamination, otherwise it can take as long as one month for signs to commence .Often, there are no symptoms for individuals infected with gonorrhea. Diseased with no symptoms are at possibility for progressing complications to illness of gonorrhea. Past infection does not make a individual resistant and immune to Neisseria gonorrhea. Gonorrhea can be cured with a single dose of antibiotics. If the infection has extended, patients will have to take medication for a longer period or hospitalized on condition that the infection is critical. The entire species of gonorrhea are treatable. However, some strains are evolving into more resistant to some antibiotics. This paper will discuss untreated gonorrhea and it will explain some complication of this disease. Continue reading
