Oligo-S Capsules for Infertility
What is infertility?
Infertility means not being able to get pregnant after one year of trying. Or, six months, if a woman is 35 years of age or older. Women who can get pregnant but are unable to stay pregnant may also be infertile.
Pregnancy is the result of a process that has many steps. To get pregnant—
A woman’s body must release an egg from one of her ovariesExternal Web Site Icon (ovulation).
The egg must go through a fallopian tubeExternal Web Site Icon toward the uterusExternal Web Site Icon (womb).
A man’s sperm must join with (fertilize) the egg along the way.
The fertilized egg must attach to the inside of the uterus (implantation).
Infertility can happen if there are problems with any of these steps.
Is infertility a common problem?
Yes. About 10 % of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15–44 years have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant.

Is infertility just a woman’s problem?
No, infertility is not always a woman’s problem. Both women and men can have problems that cause infertility. About one-third of infertility cases are caused by women’s problems. Another one third of fertility problems are due to the man. The other cases are caused by a mixture of male and female problems or by unknown problems.
What causes infertility in men?
Infertility in men is most often caused by—
A problem called varicocele (VAIR-ih-koh-seel). This happens when the veins on a man’s testicle(s) are too large. This heats the testicles. The heat can affect the number or shape of the sperm.
Other factors that cause a man to make too few sperm or none at all.
Movement of the sperm. This may be caused by the shape of the sperm. Sometimes injuries or other damage to the reproductive system block the sperm.
Sometimes a man is born with the problems that affect his sperm. Other times problems start later in life due to illness or injury. For example, cystic fibrosis often causes infertility in men.
What increases a man’s risk of infertility?
A man’s sperm can be changed by his overall health and lifestyle. Some things that may reduce the health or number of sperm include—
Heavy alcohol use
Environmental toxins, including pesticides and lead
Health problems such as mumps, serious conditions like kidney disease, or hormone problems
Radiation treatment and chemotherapy for cancer
What causes infertility in women?
Most cases of female infertility are caused by problems with ovulation. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. Some signs that a woman is not ovulating normally include irregular or absent menstrual periods.
Many couples struggle with infertility and seek help to become pregnant; however, it is often thought of as only a women’s condition. But a CDC study analyzed data from the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth, and found that 7.5% of all sexually experienced men reported a visit for help with having a child at some time during their lifetime—this equates to 3.3–4.7 million men. Of men who sought help, 18.1% were diagnosed with a male-related infertility problem, including sperm or semen problems (13.7%) and varicocele (5.9%).

Ovulation problems are often caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a hormone imbalance problem which can interfere with normal ovulation. PCOS is the most common cause of female infertility. Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) is another cause of ovulation problems. POI occurs when a woman’s ovaries stop working normally before she is 40. POI is not the same as early menopause.
Less common causes of fertility problems in women include—
Blocked fallopian tubes due to pelvic inflammatory diseaseExternal Web Site Icon, endometriosisExternal Web Site Icon, or surgery for an ectopic pregnancyExternal Web Site Icon
Physical problems with the uterus
Uterine fibroidsExternal Web Site Icon, which are non-cancerous clumps of tissue and muscle on the walls of the uterus

What things increase a woman’s risk of infertility?

Excess alcohol use
Being overweight or underweight
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

How does age affect a woman’s ability to have children?Women with timer
Many women are waiting until their 30s and 40s to have children. In fact, about 20% of women in the United States now have their first child after age 35. So age is a growing cause of fertility problems. About one-third of couples in which the woman is older than 35 years have fertility problems.
Aging decreases a woman’s chances of having a baby in the following ways—
Her ovaries become less able to release eggs
She has a smaller number of eggs left
Her eggs are not as healthy
She is more likely to have health conditions that can cause fertility problems
She is more likely to have a miscarriage
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Oligospermia is the presence of fewer than the normal number of sperm in the semen. In normal circumstances, each ejaculation releases three milliliters (ml) of sperm. The normal range of sperm count in each ejaculate is between 20 million/ml and 250 million /ml. At least 60 percent of those sperm should have a normal shape and structure (morphology) and show normal forward movement (motility). Men with fewer than 20 million sperm/ml are usually defined as having oligospermia, or a low sperm count.
Recent survey has shown trend in decline in sperm count and sperm quality in recent time. It may be due to a range of factors, possibly related to life-style and environment in developed countries, which can disrupt production of the male hormone testosterone. Oligo-S contains ingredients that help in spermatogenesis (production of sperm). Fulfils the hopes of childless couples by increasing the secretion of semen and sperm count thereby removing sexual debility and improving motility and morphology of sperms. Also useful in general debility and increases the general heat of the body.

DIETARY ADVICE : Nutritional and lifestyle changes increase chances for conception. Smoking, caffeine, drug and alcohol consumption, and stress are related to infertility. Reproductive organs are highly susceptible to free radical or oxidative damage from environmental toxicants (pesticides, insecticides, lead, radiation, and heavy metals) and natural aging. Red meat and dairy products contain amino acids which helps in increasing sperm mortality and increasing the number of motile sperms. Oysters, sardines, onions, and cardamom are also helpful. Avoid tight clothing, hot baths and saunas, as overheating the testicles can slow sperm production.
