Management of infertility will put attention on correcting the underlying complications that the experts will discover in assessing an infertile couple. At the moment, couples will benefit from some important information from the experts on how to increase their chances of attaining conception on their own. Some counseling will also be useful to boost up the couple’s morale under such conditions.
The overall management of infertility involves treating such underlying reasons as chronic diseases, insufficient manufacturing of the hormones, endometriosis, or infection. If correcting these complications does not produce success, infertility management would shift its attention on attaining conception through assisted reproductive methods such as in-vitro fertilization or sperm donation.
Increasing Sperm Motility Count is one of these methods. If sperm cannot be as motile as it should be because the vas deferens is altered, the alteration is, in such cases usually extensive and hard or probably impossible to relive by surgery.
If spermatozoa are visible but the total count is below the ideal number, a man can be advised to abstain from coitus of 7 to 10 days to increase the count. Ligation of a varicocele (if present) and advising changes in lifestyle, such as wearing looser clothing, avoiding long periods of sitting, and avoiding prolonged hot baths, can contribute to the reduce of scrotal heat and increase sperm count.
Hormone therapy is another common method. If the problem seems to be that of a disturbance or ovulation, hormone therapy with clomiphene citrate (Clomid, Serophene) is the treatment of choice to stimulate ovulation. In other women, ovarian follicular growth can be enhanced by administering human menopausal gonadotropins (Pergonal) in conjugation with administration of human chronic gonadotropin (HCG) to produce ovulation. Human menopausal gonadotropins (derived from postmenopausal urine) are combinations of FSH and LH.
Reducing the presence of Infection is another way. If vaginal infection is found, the infection will be treated according to the causative organism based on med-tech reports. Vaginal infections such as trichomoniasis and moniliasis tend to recur, requiring close supervision and floow-up. The possibility that the sexual partner is reinfecting the woman needs to be considered. Women can be prescribed with anti-infection drugs along the way until the infection is completely treated.
