Mycoplasma is not an unacquainted factor that cause male infertility. It widely spreads in nature, among those which can threaten human beings can be concluded as ureaplasma urealyticum, mycoplasma hominis and mycoplasma pneumoniae. In fact, ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma hominis mainly infect genitourinary system through sex. While mycoplasma pneumoniae infects respiratory system. So, what's the relationship between mycoplasma and male infertility? And how is male fertility affected by mycoplasma infection?
Mycoplasma mainly invades epithelial cells of the genital tract but not enter blood. However, mycoplasma can be transmitted from the mother to her baby in the process of giving birth. Therefore alot of people are born with mycoplasma in genital tract. As people grow older, mycoplasma in genital tract rapidly reduced. It is reported that mycoplasma (in genital tract) isolation rate is close to zero during their puberty. However, after intercourse, this rate can gradually ascend higher and higher.
That is to say, men are possible to carry mycoplasma, the key factor is intercourse. Mycoplasma is almost impossible to cause infection if intercourse doesn't happen, in this case, mycoplasma can not hurt men, not to mention the male infertility. Only when mycoplasma causes infection that is severe and is able to threaten genital tissue function can male infertility .
Incidence of mycoplasma will highly increased after a men start to have sex life. Urinary tract infection occurs when mycoplasma infects urethra. While when it infect prostate, some enzymes in prostate secretion can be destroyed. Actually, this enzymes can facilitate semen liquefaction, which benefits to motility of sperm. When this enzymes increases, liquefying time prolongs and leads to poor sperm motility. Consequently, male infertility comes into being.
What's more, uncured mycoplasma infection can extend to testicle, which is a premonitor of testitis orchitis and male infertility. As we know that testicle is the place where sperm come from, when testicle is infected, spermatogenic cell is accordingly damaged, rate of teratosperm becomes higher. Thus, eggs are difficult to be fertilized. Clinical observation shows that in infertile men who are caused by orchitis, the rate of teratosperm can reach 80 percent. Besides, mycoplasma can bring about male infertility through directly disturbing sperm motility. Particularly, mycoplasma is able to adhere on the head and tail of sperm, which obstructs sperm motility.
In sum, pathological changes of reproductive system and decreased sperm motility are main causes of male infertility which caused by mycoplasma infection. Positive attitude of receiving mycoplasma infection treatment is propitious to prevent male infertility. Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is an effective medicine to treat mycoplasma, which is characterized by its effective in treatment, without any side effect and recovery within three months.View Thread
Semen, also known as seminal fluid, is an organic fluid that may contain spermatozoa. It is secreted by the gonads (sexual glands) and other sexual organs of male or hermaphroditic animals and can fertilize female ova. During the process of ejaculation, sperm passes through the ejaculatory ducts and mixes with fluids from the seminal vesicles, the prostate, and the bulbourethral glands to form the semen.
65 percent of the fluid is produced by the seminal vesicles; 30 to 35 percent by the prostate, 5 percent from the testicles and epididymis. However, all these parts are fragile and can be impacted by infection easy. Once men have diseases like epididymitis, hydrocele, orchitis, testicular torsion, varicocele or testicular cancer, they can experience a lower quality of semen. Amazed by the surprising effect of diuretics, therefore, does diuretic decrease semen?
According to its definition, we can know that the diuretics are medicines that cause an increase in the flow of the urine. Therefore, it is easy to know that the major function of diuretics are causing increased passing of urine. Moreover, based on the data released by hospitals, diuretics commonly are prescribed to patients who have urine problems, like urgent urination, frequent urination, weak urine flow, and dribbling. Diuretics are generally safe, but do have some side effects. One of the most common side effects of diuretics is lower sperm count. Antihypertensives potassium-sparing diuretics can impact male fertility by diminishing the sperm's ability to fertilize an egg. Diuretics can cause dehydration and lead to low semen volume.
If the decreased sperm is not so serious, the patients can take diet therapy instead of taking diuretic. By avoiding eating food of heat, keeping good habits and taking exercise, the condition can be relieved. If the disease is irritated by inflammation, taking a medicine care is important. Since the existence of the side-effect of diuretic, herbal medicines would be better. The diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill does not have the side-effects that antibiotics have.
What's more, this herbal pill has strong ability to clear away heat and toxic materials, such as virus, bacteria, chlamydia or mycoplasma, which could improve the quality of semen at the same time. This herbal pill also has many other amazing functions like promoting Qi, activating blood circulation, dissolving lumps, dissipating stasis and improving immunity and self- healing ability, so the cure rate is high and the relapse rate is low.
From we have mentioned above, diuretic could decrease semen. Once the patients are suffering a disease, we can take a diet therapy first if the condition is not serious. However, if the disease is caused by inflammation, the diuretic and anti-inflammatory pills can be taken into consideration.View Thread
