Mobile phones and fertility

In a time when the mobile phone has become inevitable, even for children, several studies have already attempted to determine the actual risks in their use. What about the combination of mobile phones and fertility.

Male fertility is one of the main vital functions jeopardized by mobile devices and as you may know, it is already in decline in Europe.

Between 1940 and 1990, the amount of sperm per milliliter of semen has decreased by almost half (from 113 million per milliliter in 1940 to 66 million in 1990). According to researchers, this decrease on a relatively short period can be attributed to environmental rather than genetic factors.

Another team, that re-analyzed the data published in 1992, has confirmed the decline in male fertility. This concerns mostly, the United States, Europe and Australia.

Being in a developed country will not develop your sperm

Women are not spared. According to the Medical Research Foundation, which has spent more than € 500,000 in fertility in 2004: “14% of women, of childbearing age, consult for infertility!”  At European level, 15% of couples are already sterile.

What causes this phenomenon? Researchers accused the chemical molecules that are in products such as plasticizers, solvents and detergent.

A Hungarian research, made on 221 men followed for thirteen months, showed significant correlations, between the lengths of calls made ​​with a cell phone, and the decreased of sperm motility. The result showed their ability to move 51.3% of motile sperm in non-users, as opposed to 36.3% among users.

More annoying: based on the results of this study, simply keeping the phone on standby has the effect of reducing the concentration in sperm.

Phones emits continuously, even when you do not use it. The official report on the health effects of mobile phones released in 2001, contained recommendations concerning “prudent avoidance measures to reduce unnecessary exposure,” including: “to not wear mobiles close to potentially sensitive tissue, such as contact with the belly for pregnant women or near gonads for a teenager.”

If mobile phones have such harmful effects on spermatogenesis, this means that many users are already “affected”, without even knowing.

If you are experiencing such difficulties, keep in mind that Conceive Plus was created exactly for these types of issues.

Used for just one month, and got pregnant – due this month!

Just remembered I hadn’t written a review when I recommended this to a friend trying to get pregnant. Admittedly had also had a HSG within last 3 months, and we were on holidays at the time, so those are other factors. I really believe that conceive plus was a factor. Read the science on the conceive plus website.[…] Best of luck to all.

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.

Is Stress Affecting Your Fertility?

In an era where women often choose to fully sort career and finances before considering having children. It’s no wonder some of us will be in our late 30s or 40s before we even begin to think about diapers and daycare. The scary fact of the matter is, some science says fertility begins to decline once women turn 30. Yikes if that isn’t enough reason for stress.

A new study points to another factor challenging women’s chances of reproducing — stress. (Like we weren’t stressed about the odds already). Previous research has connected stress in both men and women with lowered chances of getting pregnant. This study, however, is the first of its kind to connect the stress biomarker alpha-amylase with infertility. Of the 401 who participated in the yearlong study, those with the highest levels of the biomarker had a 29% reduction in fecundity (the ability to reproduce). Though lots of studies have pointed to high levels of the hormone cortisol as a clear indicator of stress, this study didn’t find an association between the hormone and lowered chances of getting pregnant.

But, what about how these women actually felt? Lead researcher, Courtney Lynch, says the study wasn’t just about the biomarker. The men and women wrote down their daily stress levels (separately) and completed the Cohen’s perceived stress questionnaire, which includes questions about coping, handling daily tasks, and personal control.

But in line with the researchers’ previous study (which focused on self-reported stress levels), Lynch says, “We found no association between salivary alpha-amylase and the Cohen’s perceived stress scale.” So, while we may think we’ve had a rough day or a peachy one, our bodies might think otherwise. Despite medical advances to help women get pregnant, researchers say there are still many unanswered questions about infertility and overcoming reproductive roadblocks — including stress.

Stress Can Damage Fertility in Men, Not Just Women

Just because a woman cannot conceive does not always mean that it is her fault since stress can damage men’s fertility, as well. Infertility among men can be a very — ahem — touchy subject because most men are less likely to seek a physician’s help if they are stressed or ill. This is not just speculation or some bar talk.

According to WebMD, a survey of 1,100 men for the American Academy of Family Physicians showed that about 85 percent of the men who surveyed said that they would seek medical treatment if they are ill. Most of the sample — 92 percent — said that they would wait a few days to see if the illness goes away before seeing a doctor. Men with infertility problems may also have a fear of having their masculinity judged, which decreases their likelihood of seeking help.

In men, stress can interfere with hormones that affect sperm production and development, which reduces the odds of sperm to reach and fertilize the ovum. The American Fertility Association (AFA) states that infertility can also cause stress, which leads to a never-ending cycle of emotional drama, including depression, low self-esteem and relationship problems with their significant other.

There is strong evidence that shows the correlation between sperm quality and quantity and the amount of stress men have. A 2008 study among 744 men that was conducted at the University of Massachusetts showed that men who had more than two stressful events in their lives had a significantly lower sperm count than men who had fewer than two stressful events in their lives.

While current research provides much evidence in supporting the causes of women’s infertility, there is little spotlight on how stress can damage fertility in men. However, recent research from Nicolaus Copernicus University in Bydgoszcz, Poland, may shed some light. Researcher Jolanta Guz and her colleagues found that oxidative stress is a major factor in determining the amount and quality of sperm and accounts for half of all male infertility cases. Oxidative stress weakens the body’s ability to offset or neutralize the imbalance of free radical production, such as DNA and cell membrane damage. Therefore, it can decrease sperm motility, concentration and shape, which lead to a weaker chance of fertilizing the egg cell. In their report published July 12, 2013 in PLOS One, Guz and her colleagues wrote that abnormal sperm show high levels of oxidative stress, such as “excessive level of reactive oxygen species” and lower antioxidant content.

There is no single best way to deal with the damage from stress and fertility issues for men, although physicians have recommended regular exercise, a healthy diet and more open communication with their women. Some men may find that eating more dietary fiber, fruits and vegetables lift their mood. Some may find physical activity, such as jogging, yoga or salsa dancing, to calm the mind. Whatever the method may be, every man should find a way to deal with the cause of stress. Knowing is half the battle.

Sperm finding could improve fertility, contraceptives

(Medical Xpress)—A new study headed up by Cornell scientists has found that a component of the sperm membrane tightly controls a crucial step in fertilization, making it a prime target for efforts to either assist fertilization or prevent it.

That’s good news for both fertility efforts and contraceptive development, according to lead author Dr. Alexander Travis, associate professor of reproductive biology at Cornell’s Baker Institute for Animal Health and the College of Veterinary Medicine.

He and his colleagues report in the journalDevelopmental Cell that as a sperm approaches an egg, GM1 in the sperm membrane controls the opening and closing of a specific calcium channel on the surface of the sperm head, allowing a small amount of calcium into the sperm. The researchers report that this tiny movement of calcium must be completed in order for the sperm to release the enzymes that help it pass through the egg’s thick outer coating. The release process, called acrosome exocytosis, is an irreversible step toward fertilization.

“By defining how GM1 regulates this calcium channel, we can now look for compounds that block or mimic that interaction,” said Travis, who also is faculty director for the environment at Cornell’s Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future. “It potentially gives you a new approach for a spermicide,” he added.

The only spermicide that’s commercially available is detergent-based, a formulation that makes certain users more susceptible to sexually transmitted diseases. A new approach could work without detergents, he says, mimicking GM1’s effect on sperm and triggering them to burst open and die long before they reach an egg.

On the other hand, he said, the information might help guide the development of new cryopreservatives for use in fertility treatments in humans, livestock or endangered species. Some current cryopreservative formulations contain mixtures of lipids, including GM1, an ingredient that may trigger premature acrosome exocytosis and actually reduce the length of time sperm can survive after thawing, Travis said.

Meanwhile, an immediate application for GM1 is male fertility testing. Since the presence and location of GM1 in the sperm membrane must be finely tuned to accomplish fertilization, defects in these aspects can adversely affect sperm function, making GM1 a potentially useful biomarker for male fertility, said Travis. A company that Travis co-founded, Androvia Inc., has developed an assay of male fertility that’s currently in clinical trials.

The findings may also provide answers to other health-related questions, Travis added. The particular calcium channels that are active in sperm and regulated by GM1 are also found in other parts of the body, and Travis says his lab will now explore whether the GM1-calcium channel interaction they’ve identified in sperm also holds true in those organs.

The secret of fertile sperm

To better understand the causes of male infertility, a team of Bay Area researchers has been exploring the factors, both physiological and biochemical, that differentiate fertile sperm from infertile sperm. At the 58th Annual Biophysical Society Meeting, which took place Feb. 15-19, 2014, in San Francisco, Calif., the team presented its work to identify and characterize proteins known as ion channels, which are crucial for sperm fertility and expressed within a sperm cell’s plasma membrane.

“Any knowledge gained in this area may help create much-needed diagnostic testing and treatments for male infertility, which is in essence an idiopathic disease, because at this time 80 percent of male infertility cases can’t be diagnosed or treated,” said Melissa Miller, a postdoctoral fellow who will present the team’s findings at the meeting. Miller works in the labs of both of her co-authors, Polina Lishko of the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), and Yuriy Kirichok at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

To study ion channels, the researchers are recording the electrical activity of sperm ion channels under strictly controlled conditions.

“Our labs have characterized three ion channels responsible for regulating calcium (CatSper), potassium (Slo1), and protons (Hv1) within sperm cells,” Miller said. “So far, the most well-studied is the sperm cation channel CatSper, which is exclusively expressed within sperm cells and represents an ideal target for development of a unisex contraceptive; no other cell in the body is known to express this protein.”

“We recently reported that the female hormone progesterone activates CatSper via a non-genomic pathway. In normal fertile spermatozoa, CatSper activity was greatly increased by the addition of progesterone. However, patch clamp recording from patient-derived sperm cells with CatSper deletion showed no response to progesterone nor did they produced basal CatSper current,” Miller said. “This shows direct regulation of the CatSper channel in human sperm by steroid hormones.”

Steroid hormones control the fundamental physiological functions via both traditional genomic and unconventional, nongenomic pathways. Previous research established that nongenomic signaling plays a vital role in both human sperm cell activation and pain perception modulation within neurons of the spinal cord. Because the molecular determinants of this pathway are poorly understood, Miller’s team is working to uncover the precise molecular signaling cascade that occurs in sperm cells and neurons upon progesterone treatment.

“The lack of CatSper activity is strongly correlated with male infertility, so identification of this endogenous signaling molecule would give us a novel biomarker for male fertility that could be immediately used in the clinic as a way to quickly assess sperm fertilization potential,” Miller said.

Overall, the knowledge gained from the team’s studies may be used in the future development of new pain management therapies, as well as diagnostic tests and treatments for male infertility.
