Sperm quality may impact offspring

Men who wait longer to have children run an increased risk of passing on potential health conditions to their offspring due to sperm health, a new study from University of Otago has found.

The study analyzed the results of 90 existing studies on male fertility and found consistent findings—the quality of a man’s semen declined as he aged. It’s already recognized that a woman’s age can lead to increased likelihood of health problems in children but it has been less clear whether a man’s age had similar effects.

“While female age is well known to have negative effects on fertility, reproductive success and the health of offspring, the influence of male age on a couple’s fertility has been largely neglected,” said the study’s lead author Dr Sheri Johnson.

Not only did older sperm increase the risk of miscarriage and other complications during pregnancy, they increased the likelihood of a range of conditions such as Autism, Down syndrome, epilepsy and schizophrenia. It could also be a big factor in infertility.The study was not designed to identify the rate of decline, but Johnson said existing studies showed that consistent downward trend could begin as early as 35.

The specific problem with older semen was lower volume, poor sperm performance, and increases in malformed and DNA-damaged sperm. Semen quality is used to show how fertile a man is. However instead of relying on semen volume, sperm concentration and total sperm count, which are common clinically measured traits, Johnson said a greater focus on the ratio of DNA-fragmented sperm cells and their ability to swim, could be more important aspects of sperm quality: these are likely more accurate and consistent predictors of a man’s fertility status.The findings were significant because many couples were waiting longer to have children, Johnson said.

Conceive Plus® is the ideal fertility lubricant for all couples trying for a baby naturally. Clinically proven to support sperm health and viability, Conceive Plus® is FDA cleared for use by trying to conceive couples and is safe for sperm and does not cause DNA fragmentation.

Being in a developed country will not develop your sperm

Being in a developed country will not develop your sperm.

In recent years, scientists mention more and more about the effects caused by chemical substances (natural or anthropogenic origin) disrupting the reproductive functions in wildlife.

This finding is illustrating the growing concern of the society, that exposure to toxic substances in the environment could have negative effects on human fertility with more and more people are having issues to conceive.

As the famous journalist Michael Pollan Said “We are what we eat”.

Daily we absorb toxins. We are exposed to contaminate air and consume contaminate food, without being aware of it. We believe that the doses are too small to affect us since we do not realised direct effects on our bodies. But studies are now clearly showing the impact on our biological welfare.

 Many studies since the 80’s are showing that the quality of sperm has fallen and keeps on falling. For example, the sperm count of the average Frenchman, say the researchers, fell by 32.2% between 1989 and 2005.

Even worse, studies from 1992 showed that the proportion of deformed sperm has increased by 8%.

 The result of chemical pollution as clearly affecting our fertility. Not only the quantity but also the quality of the sperm is dropping.

Lab Grown Sperm Could Cure Male Infertility

Sperm has been successfully grown in a test tube for the first time, a breakthrough technology that could eventually help cure male infertility, Japanese scientists said Thursday.

In the experiment, researchers at Yokohama City University were able to produce healthy, fertile offspring using the laboratory created sperm. Their findings can be found in the journal Nature.

“Until now, none of the attempts have been wholly successful, and when the sperm have been used, the pups born have not been healthy and have soon died,” said Dr. Allan Pacey, senior lecturer in andrology at the University of Sheffield, in northern England.

The next step is to reproduce the technique in humans as the technology will give new hope to men with low sperm counts or abnormal sperm.

“Until now, none of the attempts have been wholly successful, and when the sperm have been used, the pups born have not been healthy and have soon died,” said Dr. Allan Pacey, senior lecturer in andrology at the University of Sheffield, in northern England.

The findings could also be a boon for young male cancer patients. Because the technique also works when the tissue samples were frozen and thawed again, fertility in young boys could be preserved before they underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy by freezing their sperm

Frozen sperm as good as fresh for IVF treatment

A recent study published in PLOS ONE finds that frozen sperm retrieved via testicular biopsy is as good as fresh sperm in leading to a successful pregnancy through IVF. The finding should make it easier to organize IVF procedures and increase options for infertile couples.

IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a technique that helps couples with fertility problems to have a baby. During the procedure, an egg is removed from the woman’s ovaries, fertilized in a lab dish with sperm from the man, and the fertilized egg or embryo is then placed in the woman’s womb to grow and develop.

If the man has a low sperm count or no sperm in his semen at all – for example because of an inherited disorder or as a result of cancer – then viable sperm has to be retrieved directly from the testicle with a biopsy. This is then either used straight away as fresh sperm, or frozen for future use.

The procedure is called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and involves injecting a single sperm into the egg, instead of adding the sperm to the egg in a lab dish.

If fresh sperm is used in the ICSI procedure, then events concerning both partners have to be synchronized precisely to maximize the chances of a successful pregnancy.

But if frozen sperm can be used, then this simplifies the overall IVF process considerably, from a number of angles. For instance, from the timing angle, the man can give his sperm in advance, and from the location angle, the biopsy may not have to take place at the same clinic or surgery as the one the woman must attend.

Kenan Omurtag, first study author and assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, told the press: “The convenience and ease of being able to use frozen sperm taken by biopsy in ICSI offers many advantages over fresh sperm.”

When the procedure uses fresh sperm, the man has to undergo the testicle biopsy either the same day or the day before the egg is retrieved from the woman, and this may not be convenient for them.

If frozen sperm is used, then the man can have the biopsy, and if sperm is found, it can be frozen for later use. Then, at a time convenient for the couple, the woman has her eggs harvested, and the rest of the ICSI, where the sperm is injected into the egg, can take place.

The issue of convenience is important because it is not just a matter of the woman dropping into the clinic when she happens to feel like it. Before her eggs can be harvested, she has to have hormone injections every day for 7 to 10 days to stimulate her ovaries. And when the eggs are ready to be harvested, the doctor finds them with an ultrasound scanner, and removes them with a very thin, hollow needle.

For their study, Omurtag and colleagues analyzed 15 years of data from the Washington University Infertility and Reproductive Medicine Center.

Of 136 men who underwent ICSI, 84% of the procedures used frozen sperm and the rest used fresh sperm.

The researchers found that frozen sperm performed as well as fresh sperm in ICSI in terms of pregnancy success rate, despite there being a statistically significant difference in fertilization rate (frozen sperm 62%, fresh sperm 47%).

They also found that the type of center or clinic where the sperm was taken and its distance to the IVF lab also made no difference to pregnancy success rates.

The participants in this study underwent their testicular biopsies either in an operating room next to the IVF lab, an operating room in another building a mile from the IVF lab, or an ambulatory center 15 mile from the IVF lab.

Co-author and professor of obstetrics and gynecology Randall Odem says: “This study demonstrates that using frozen sperm taken by biopsy works as well for most patients in what matters most – pregnancy rates.”

Researchers in Belgium recently showed it is also possible to develop a low-cost IVF procedure that could perform one treatment cycle for just over $250, making it accessible to many people around the world who cannot afford the conventional method, which in the US costs around $12,400 per cycle.
