Anxiety and depression increased the risk of sexual dysfunction in the studied population.Resumo Objetivo Avaliar a fun ção sexual, ansiedade e depressão de mulheres inférteis em relação a um grupo controle. Métodos Mulheres inférteis (grupo infértil, GI) em idade reprodutiva foram convidadas a participar deste estudo. Um grupo controle (GC) de mulheres foi recrutado da população geral da mesma cidade. A função sexual foi avaliada pelo Índice de Função Sexual Feminina (FSFI, na sigla eminglês), e ansiedade e depressão foram medidas pela Escala Hospitalar de Ansiedade e Depressão (HADS, na sigla em inglês). Resultados Um total de 280 mulheres participaram deste estudo, sendo 140 no GI e 1 40 no GC. A análise dos escores do FSFI mostrou que 47 mulheres (33,57%) no GI e 49 mulheres (35%) no GC apresentaram disfunção sexual (FSFI ≤ 26,55; p = 0,90). Mulheres com ansiedade ou depress ão tiveram um risco maior de disfunção sexual e a disfunção sexual aumentava o risco de ansiedade e depressão. Asmulheres casadas tiveram um risco menor de depressão do que as mulheres amasiadas. Conclusão As mulheres inférteis não apresentaram risco aumentado de disfunção s...

Ureaplasma urealyticum (uu) is one of the most common agents of urogenital infections and is associated with complications such as infertility, spontaneous abortion and other sexually transmitted diseases. Here, a DNA sensor based on oligonucleotide target-specific gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) was developed, in which the dispersed and aggregated states of oligonucleotide-functionalised AuNPs were optimised for the colorimetric detection of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplicon of U. urealyticum DNA. A non-cross-linking approach utilising a single Au-nanoprobe specific of the urease gene was utilised and the effect of a ...

In this cross-sectional study, we investigated 255 couples with infertility undergoing examination at a university hospital between January and December 2017. The assessment tools included the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale-21, Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), Premature Ejaculation Diagnostic Tool (PEDT), and International Index of Erectile Function-15 (IIEF-15). The rates and mean scores of depression, anxiety, and stress among ...

Abstract One treatment option for couples with infertility that enables the highest success rate is in vitro fertilization (IVF). With this technique, various causes of infertility can be overcome, whether they are caused by anatomical abnormalities in women or abnormalities of sexual dysfunction in men. Acupuncture, a nonpharmacologic therapy with minimal side-effects, according to various studies is be beneficial for increasing the success of IVF. There are several mechanisms of acupuncture related to this, such as: (1) modulating neuroendocrine factors; (2) increasing blood flow to the uterus and ovaries; (3) m...

Abstract There has been increasing interest in the psycho-socio-relational and sexual disorders of infertility, as the risk of psychological burden among infertile men with sexual dysfunctions is significant. The purpose of this study was to develop and to validate a predictive model to estimate individual psychological burden among infertile men with sexual dysfunction and study the association between them. Comprehensive data were collected for infertile men (n = 480) who sought treatment for infertility in a reproductive medicine center between June 2012 and December 2013. Using independent predictors of psycho...

CONCLUSIONS: PCOS patients markedly suffer from sexual dysfunction and therefore it seems appropriate to be screened for intervention. Poor mental health conditions that may be the result of infertility or other complications of PCOS should also be considered as curable causes of sexual dysfunction in these patients.

Abstract Prolactin (PRL) has been long deemed as a hormone involved only in female reproduction. However, PRL is a surprising hormone and, since its identification in the 1970s, its attributed functions have greatly increased. However, its specific role in male health is still widely unknown. Recently, low PRL has been associated with reduced ejaculate and seminal vesicle volume in infertile subjects. In addition, in men consulting for sexual dysfunction, hypoprolactinemia has been associated with erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, findings further confirmed in the general European population and infe...
