CAUSES OF INFERTILITY REVISITED FOR SUCCESSFUL PREGNANCY
Hi My Friend,
I will start this article by first making out a heart felt APOLOGY to you my friend that has been trying to see me personally at the clinic.
Especially for you that I booked an appointment to meet this last Saturday.
I am really very sorry that I could not make it.
I did all I could to be there, but somehow a few hours to that time I had a very important emergency issue that I must attend to.
So I had no other choice but to disappoint you.
I hope I can make it up to you some other time.
I can understand the stress of your coming all over the state to see me at Ikotun, especially going through all those wicked but wonderful traffic caused by the endless and yearless road constructions that seem to be ongoing for life, never having a time it will end.
I believe one day, they will eventually do the right thing and really construct the roads in Lagos, like they are doing successfully in Calabar [ where I recently visited].
I really appreciate you my friend that take out of your tight schedule to come to the clinic to see me, especially those of you coming from very far and out of the state.
I remember my friend and client from Kaduna, you too that came all the way from Ibafon and you also that came from Abeokuta. It was good that I was able to see all of you, may be it was because you came during the week. I believe that our discussion was very fruitful, and we should be seeing the end of infertility in your life soonest.
I know that weekends are especially busy and crazy times for me, but I will still make out time one or two Saturdays in a month to try and meet with you that is busy during the week.
Unfortunately this coming Saturday I will also not be at the clinic. A very close friend and brother of mine who is a medical doctor and also a solder travelled all the way from Darfur Sudan [Peace keeping force] to get married to his heart throb, and I must be there, since it is my wedding.
So there is no way I will be at the clinic this coming Saturday.
However I am not a holiday person , so those of you who will not be travelling out of Lagos, or those who will be coming into Lagos from outside the state during this Xmas season, and will like to see me personally, can easily see me at the clinic during this time, because I will be working full time on Xmas, boxing and newyear days.
But the greatest way to contact me and ask any question in your mind is to send me a simple email, I will surely reply you.
Do not also think I do not find time to relax, I do, I will surely be taking the kids out to either the beach or the Apapa Amusement park, one of the week days during the festival time.
You can also suggest some great fun places for me at Ikeja where I can take the kids to for fun.
I only know the Apapa Amusement park and also the many beaches in Lagos, I wish I can find a near by place at Ikeja to enjoy myself with the family.
Talking about the kids. My first daughter [my ADA] was 9 years old this Sunday. She had a low keyed birthday celebration, but it was still fun.
Wao, she is really growing into a beautiful and lovely lady. Seeing her grow make me imagine how much I will be collecting for her bride price. Maybe I will not take naira, I need some hard currency, so I will either take Dollars, Pounds, or Euros.
Infertility is really looking broad, and becoming a major issue worldwide. I have tried in my articles to you to make it as simple and user friendly as possible.
The reason is this, so that you will be so well informed that you can easily understand it and through that find solution to it.
Infertility is just the inability to get pregnant after one year of regular sexual intercourse. If you are 30years and above, then it will be after six months.
In this article we want to remind ourselves some of the causes of infertility, because as the saying goes, once you know the cause of a problem, you have gotten 60% of the problem solved.
The major cause of infertility remains ovulation disorder. This is very important, because if you have problems with your ovulation , you will not be able to produce eggs for your partner sperm to fertilise. Ovulation problem can be so serious, because it can after a lady at anytime, since it is heavily dependent on her hormone status. That is why you can see a lady that has kids and is now seeking another one , but finding it difficult.
Another cause of infertility that is affecting many ladies in Nigeria is Blocked Fallopian Tubes. Yes this is serious, a lady can produce eggs, and her husband’s sperms can be superb, but if there is any blockage in her fallopian tubes , there is no way the sperms can get to the eggs, so no pregnancy can occur.
Tubal blockage can be caused by a very minor reason like a thickened Mucous plug, this is the simplest form of partial or total blockage that can delay any lady at any age and anytime from getting pregnant. However the beauty of Mucous Plug tubal blockage is that it is easily treated by just a diagnostic test like HSG or Sonohydrotubation.
Some more serious causes of tubal blockage are PID. Endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy leading to the tube been surgically removed, other surgeries from ruptured appendicitis, even complications from C&S and abortions.
The next is uterine scarring from previous abortions, this is serious, and can really be long standing.
Do not forget about Age, infertility is very related to age, as a lady advances in age her ovarian reserves reduces.
We also have uterine malformations , that is the womb was created abnormal from birth, and also the womb can also be made abnormal by fibroids and endometriosis.
Other causes of infertility are thyroid and other hormonal imbalance.
Then men can also be a cause of infertility due to low sperm count, poor libido or erectile dysfunction.
The list can be endless, but I want to quickly go to some ways of preventing infertility.
However the truth remains that most types of infertility cannot be prevented.
Those you can prevent are
 Smoking , which is linked to low sperm count and poor quality egg production.
 Alcohol affects the fertility of both men and ladies
 Excercise is good, but too much stressful excercise can lead to menstrual disorder in ladies and affect sperm production in men.
 Been too fat or even too thin is another terrible state, that can seriously affect ovulation in ladies and sperm production in men.
 Eating healthy and natural food and drinks can really improve fertility
Some compulsory tests that must be done and repeated yearly or six monthly, are HSG, Folliculometry [repeated 3 monthly], Hormonal Profile, HVS and Full Blood Count, Sperm tests, Scrotal and testes scan.
