Getting Pregnant – Smoking & Infertility – How Smoking Hurts Male & Female Fertility – Is Your Smoking habit responsible for your fertility struggles?? How Smoking Hurts Fertility and adversely effects reproduction.

 

It’s no secret that smoking is detrimental to your health, so it should be no surprise that smoking can affect your fertility. If you are a smoker and planning to have a baby, the best thing you can do is stop before trying to get pregnant.

How Smoking Hurts Fertility

How Smoking Hurts Fertility

Effects of smoking on pregnancy– Not only decreasing fertility, smoking increases the risk of miscarriage and may even increase the risk of a tubal pregnancy. Smoking results in placental insufficiency, which may cause inadequate growth of the developing infant. Smoking is also associated with premature birth.

 

Do you know Smoking May Shorten Your Biological Clock:?

Some studies have shown that smoking can cause not only problems with fertility while you’re smoking, but lead to lowered fertility in the future.

 

Men produce new sperm throughout their lives, but women are born with all the eggs they will ever have. Once those eggs are damaged, there’s no going back. Smoking may decrease the total number of eggs a woman has in her ovaries and cause the ovaries to age prematurely.

 

Toxins in cigarettes may also lead to DNA damage to the ovarian follicles, where the eggs normally develop to maturity.

 

This premature aging of the ovaries and decrease in eggs may lead to earlier menopause, as much as four years earlier than normal.

 

Smoking can increase many fertility problems for women, including:

Affecting your eggs and causing ovulation problems, damaging your cervix and fallopian tubes Increasing risks for miscarriageand other problems during pregnancy and at birth

Is Your Smoking habit responsible for your fertility struggles??

Is Your Smoking habit responsible for your fertility struggles??

How Smoking Hurts Male Fertility:

Smoking damages sperm, making them less likely to fertilise eggs — and making the embryos they do manage to create less likely to survive. Smoking Degrades Sperm Protein Needed for Fertility, Embryo Survival.

 

Why Smokers’ Sperm Are Less Fertile: Male Fertility

Human sperm cells carry two tiny, highly charged proteins called protamine 1 and protamine 2. Nature keeps them in a perfectly balanced one-to-one relationship. But in smokers, sperm cells carry too little protamine 2. This imbalance makes them highly vulnerable to DNA damage.

 

The DNA alphabet of these sperm has one or two letters missing. And this cannot be repaired. When we inject these damaged sperm into an egg cell, the sperm is not capable of fertilising the cell. And even if it does, the [miscarriage] rate is very high.

 

We recommend couples seeking treatment for fertility to stop smoking at least three months before they attempt pregnancy or in vitro fertilisation. It’s a good idea to quit smoking before you even consider pregnancy.

 

Smoking also affects both male & female fertility. And even if only one member of a couple smokes, second-hand smoke tends to affect the fertility of his or her partner.

Quitting smoking before you even start trying to get pregnant may:

improve your chances of conceiving

be easier on your body

healthier for your baby

lower the risk of miscarrying the pregnancy

lower the risk of birth defects for your baby

 

Couple trying to become pregnant – Men and women hoping to become parents must make serious efforts to stop smoking in order to get pregnant and have healthy babies.

 

If you are a smoker and want to get pregnant… NOW IS THE TIME TO QUIT!!!

 

‘Having one miscarriage can be very much disturbing for the couple, but having one after another is often a very traumatic experience. Women with repeated miscarriages can be reassured that their chance of having a healthy baby is the same as women who have never miscarried.’

Says Eminent Gynaecologist and Fertility Expert from 

Blossom Fertility and IVF Centre Dr. Rupal Nirav Shah.

Investigations to find out a possible reason for recurrent miscarriage is advisable after the third recurrent miscarriage, but in women of more than 30 years, investigations are advised even after 2 abortions. In more than 50% cases, it’s impossible for doctors to identify the cause for recurrent miscarriage.

If your miscarriages are unexplained, then you have a good chance of having a successful pregnancy in the future. Only close tender loving care(TLC) by your obstetrician and closed relatives can increase your chances of a successful pregnancy. Many hormonal and immunological conditions are treatable. Your gynecologist is the best person, whom you can discuss your chances of success.

When there is no reason found and you don’t want to take any chance Pre-implantation genetic screening is a good option in which, selected cytogenetically normal embryos are transferred in the uterus to avoid bad news again with help of IVF treatment.

Ectopic pregnancy is when a pregnancy grows outside of your uterus, usually in your fallopian tube. Ectopic pregnancies are rare but serious, and they need to be treated.

What’s an ectopic pregnancy? An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilised egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus. Pregnancy begins with a fertilised egg. Normally, the fertilised egg attaches to the lining of the uterus.

Ectopic Pregnancy: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments

Ectopic Pregnancy: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments

Normal pregnancies develop inside your uterus, after a fertilised egg travels through your fallopian tube and attaches to your uterine lining. Ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilised egg attaches somewhere else in your body, usually in your fallopian tube — that’s why it’s sometimes called “tubal pregnancy.”

Ectopic pregnancies are rare — it happens in about 2 out of every 100 pregnancies. But they’re very dangerous if not treated. Fallopian tubes can break if stretched too much by the growing pregnancy — this is sometimes called a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. This can cause internal bleeding, infection, and in some cases lead to death.

Ectopic Pregnancy Symptoms

You may not notice anything at first. However, some women with an ectopic pregnancy have the usual early signs or symptoms of pregnancy — a missed period, breast tenderness and nausea.

If you take a pregnancy test, the result will be positive. Still, an ectopic pregnancy can’t continue as normal.

Signs and symptoms increase as the fertilised egg grows in the improper place.

Early warning of ectopic pregnancy

Often, the first warning sign of an ectopic pregnancy is pelvic pain. Light vaginal bleeding may also occur.

If blood leaks from the fallopian tube, you may feel increasing abdominal pain, an urge to have a bowel movement or pelvic discomfort. If heavy bleeding (hemorrhaging) occurs, you may feel shoulder pain as blood fills your pelvis and abdomen. Your specific symptoms depend on where the blood collects and which nerves are irritated.

Emergency symptoms during ectopic pregnancy

If the fertilised egg continues to grow in the fallopian tube, it can cause the tube to rupture. Heavy bleeding inside the abdomen is likely. Symptoms of this life-threatening event include extreme lightheadedness, fainting, severe abdominal pain and shock.

It is important to contact your doctor immediately if you are experiencing sharp pain that lasts more than a few minutes or if you have bleeding.

Ectopic pregnancies are diagnosed by your physician, who will probably first perform a pelvic exam to locate pain, tenderness, or a mass in the abdomen. Your physician will also use an ultrasound to determine whether the uterus contains a developing fetus.

Can I get pregnant again after an ectopic pregnancy?

Most people who have an ectopic pregnancy can have healthy pregnancies in the future, depending on the treatment you had and the condition of your fallopian tubes. If one of your fallopian tubes was removed or your tubes are scarred, it may be more difficult to get pregnant. If you have an ectopic pregnancy, you’re more likely to get another one in the future.

About 20 percent of females coming to our Blossom IVF Centre are found to have problems in fallopian tubes. Few of reasons of blocked fallopian tubes are Pelvic infections (PID) leading to salpingitis and hydrosalpinx, Ectopic pregnancy, Tubal Ligation(family planning) surgery, Adhesions following abdominal surgery and Genital Tuberculosis.

Sometimes with help of our good intentions and help of latest technology , we can bring abundance joy in life of couples who have lost their children untimely because of illnesses or accidents.

Today, let me share a fruitful story of a patient with blocked fallopian tubes. A poor couple from Kolkata, who had lost 2nd son 7 years before at the age of 5 years due to severe infection in brain(meningitis) and the unfortunate wife had undergone family planning surgery at the time of delivery as they did not want a third child in future.


But after losing her beloved son ,she was under tremendous depression and she could not forget her lost young one. So she was brought to me for counselling and to discuss future treatment options to make their dreams of parenthood real again .

Getting Pregnant After Tubal Blockage

Getting Pregnant After Tubal Blockage

Here I offered them two options, discussing pros and cons of both treatments.

First option was to undergo family planning reversal surgery, though it is cheaper option than Test-tube baby treatment, It is painful as it is major surgery, success rates are less than 25%, chances of ectopic pregnancy(which if remains undiagnosed ,can prove life-threatening) and here as patient was already 35 ,her eggs reserve was also declining rapidly, much lowering the success of the procedure.

So as a second option ,they were offered IVF ,In which after few days of hormonal treatment to prepare her eggs, her eggs were removed from  ovaries with a minor procedure, and fertilisation of her eggs and husband’s sperms were done in laboratory by IVF ICSI procedure.(In normal circumstances, this fertilisation occurs in fallopian tubes ,which was not possible in her case due to family planning surgery) and then embryos made by this procedure were transferred to patient’s uterus after 5 days and after 14 days her pregnancy test was positive and after 9 month ,she delivered a baby boy again. The couple was overwhelmed by having this bundle of joy again in their lives as according to them ,their lost son took re-birth again to make their lives meaningful.

Much more attention should be paid to the impact of obesity on fertility in both women and men. This appears to be particularly important for women before assisted reproductive technologies are used. It is important to note that reducing BMI through weight loss has been demonstrated to significantly improve fertility treatment outcomes and to lower both treatment and pregnancy complications. IVF remains more complicated for Obese Women and they require different medication doses than normal weight women. In other words, not only does obesity make it much more difficult to conceive, but it also exposes both the mother and the infant to all manner of risks before and after birth.

When couples strive to increase their chances of fertility, a multitude of factors may be considered. They may be more conscious of the foods they eat, alcohol or caffeine consumed, or exercise regimen maintained. Although these day-to-day habits are certainly good to keep in mind, it is also important to remember that one’s weight plays a part in his or her overall health, and when it comes to fertility, weight is yet another factor that may influence success rates.

Obesity and Infertility Treatment - Being Obese and Fertile

Obesity and Infertility Treatment – Being Obese and Fertile

To become pregnant, a healthy weight matters. Being overweight or obese can impact your fertility. Obesity is a rising epidemic affecting millions worldwide. Obesity also significantly affects a woman’s capacity to carry on a pregnancy to term. Obesity is defined by an extraordinarily high Body Mass Index (BMI) in which the index is a reflection of body fat content. Around 1 in 4 women are at least overweight as per surveys and studies. The rates are higher among women facing problems of conception. Obese women are three times more likely to suffer infertility than women with a normal body mass index. Overweight or obese women experience longer times to pregnancy and reduced probabilities of conception relative to their normal-weight counterparts. Moreover, they are at an increased risk of early and recurrent miscarriage. These women generally have reduced oocyte quality, lower developmental potential, and poor clinical outcomes when they undergo assisted reproduction treatment.

“Healthy women have healthy eggs and are more likely to have healthy children,”

Obesity has a number of different effects on fertility of men and women as follows:

1. Obesity affects hormones

When body mass index goes past the overweight category (BMI of 25–29.9) into the obese category (BMI of 30 and above), hormonal changes may occur in the female body. When the levels of natural hormones change, the chances of conception decrease.

2. Obesity leads to insulin resistance

The hormonal imbalance that comes with obesity often leads to insulin resistance. That is a major risk factor on the road to diabetes — but it also affects fertility and can create abnormal menstrual cycles. Insulin resistance can lead to anovulation, in which body does not produce eggs properly.

3. Obesity affects natural and assisted pregnancies

Obesity makes it more challenging to become pregnant, no matter whether a couple is using natural means or reproductive technologies such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF). It also increases the risk for a miscarriage. This issue may be caused by the hormonal issues or because of poor quality eggs.

4. Obesity decreases Men’s fertility, too

Although much of the focus on obesity and infertility is on women, it absolutely affects men, too. For men, obesity leads to a drop in testosterone, which can lead to infertility. On top of that, erectile dysfunction occurs at a higher rate among obese men.

5. Losing weight can improve all of the above

In recent years, the connection between lifestyle, weight, nutrition and fertility is gaining more public exposure. A multidisciplinary approach to weight management is more likely to be a successful treatment option. The emphasis should be on lifestyle change, education about proper diet, exercise, and behavior modification. A more holistic approach to obesity and reproductive health can help increase the chances of conception in obese women. In doing so, it would also have a positive impact on the general health. As a result of weight loss, the hormonal imbalances and other effects of obesity begin to decrease.

More specifically, the greater a woman’s body-mass index (BMI) is, the less likely she is to have a successful IVF experience. A Recent study has shown that to a large extent, today’s generation is what their moms and dads ate prior to and around their conception. “This is a huge issue that really does carry through to certainly the next — and probably the next two — generations.”

Obesity has negative effects on reproductive health. It has been established that obesity is associated with decreased natural fecundity, a decreased ovulation rate, increased time until conception, and increased rates of miscarriage. Additionally, an increased rate of pregnancy complications, including gestational hypertension, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, postpartum hemorrhage, and fetal macrosomia, are all associated with obesity. Since the incidence of obesity is continually rising, an increasing number of overweight and obese women are seeking fertility treatments through assisted reproduction technology (ART).

There is nothing in medical science that says that IVF can’t be done on fat or obese women. IVF remains more complicated for Obese Women and they require different medication doses than normal weight women. Consequently, there is a need to understand the full impact of obesity on in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments. In vitro fertilization is used to help women become pregnant by mixing the sperm and egg outside the body, then implanting the embryo into the woman’s uterus. Following are the effects of obesity on in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates.

1. Obese women need higher doses of drugs

Obesity is associated with higher doses of medications to stimulate the ovaries. Obese women also take longer to respond, have increased cycle cancellation rates, and fewer eggs retrieved.

2. Obese Women are less likely to get Pregnant

IVF pregnancy rates are lower in obese women.  The age-adjusted odds of live birth are reduced due to high BMI. In other words, the chances of having a baby decrease as the woman’s weight increases.

3. Obesity Affects Eggs and Embryos

Egg quality, fertilization rate and embryo quality all decrease in obese women. This means that eggs retrieved may result in a failed IVF cycle. Obese women are less likely to have successful IVF from their own eggs (and not donor eggs), due to poorer egg quality. When it comes to IVF with donor eggs, obese women apparently have normal success rates. It is apparent that women with a BMI of >25 and especially those with a BMI of >30 exhibit a poorer ovarian response to fertility drugs (impaired follicle and embryo development with fewer blastocysts becoming available for transfer). These women also tend to have a reduced ability to implant transferred embryos into their uterine linings because of its thickness, perhaps due to reduced endometrial receptivity. 

4. Obesity Affects the Uterine Lining

An obese woman is at a greater risk of developing abnormal thickening of the uterus lining. This is because estrogen is secreted in excess in an obese woman. The uterine lining becomes thick and is less receptive in obese women. It is apparent that women with a BMI of >25 and especially those with a BMI of >30 exhibit a poorer ovarian response to fertility drugs (impaired follicle and embryo development with fewer blastocysts becoming available for transfer). These women also tend to have a reduced ability to implant transferred embryos into their uterine linings because of its thickness, perhaps due to reduced endometrial receptivity.

Women who are planning to get pregnant or to enter IVF programs should be advised to lose weight before starting so, as very strict diets are not allowed during pregnancy or while on IVF. The clinical significance of a growing population of overweight women is enormous because not only can this compromise their overall reproductive performance, but it also compounds the risk of chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, and coronary/cerebral/peripheral vascular disease, and thus compromises life expectancy as well as the quality of life. As such, being overweight represents an overall life hazard that should be addressed by the medical profession as well as by society as a whole. The answer is surely not a simple one, but the solution does not lie in dieting alone. Instead, it requires an overall modification in lifestyle.

It is important to note that reducing BMI through weight loss has been demonstrated to significantly improve fertility treatment outcomes and to lower both treatment and pregnancy complications.

All options related to pregnancy for obese women are explained in detail. Finally, it is important to emphasize that overweight women are at far greater risk during pregnancy than are women of normal body weight. Women who are planning to get pregnant or to enter IVF programs are advised to lose weight before starting, as weight loss “improves ovulatory function” as well as pregnancy outcomes. It is important to note that reducing BMI through weight loss has been demonstrated to significantly improve fertility treatment outcomes and to lower both treatment and pregnancy complications. In other words, not only does obesity make it much more difficult to conceive, but it also exposes both the mother and the infant to all manner of risks before and after birth. “Because of the complex nature of obesity and of reproduction, when an obese woman with subfertility presents for fertility treatment, an individualized yet systematic approach is needed.
