Medical News Today: What causes watery semen, and does it affect fertility?

Ejaculating multiple times per day, living with certain medical conditions, and having nutritional deficiencies can all cause watery semen. Watery semen may indicate a low sperm count, but it does not necessarily mean that a person is infertile. Learn more about the causes of watery semen here.

Is There a Need to Alter the Timing of Anti-Müllerian Hormone Measurement During the Menstrual Cycle? Geburtshilfe Frauenheilkd. 2019 Jul;79(7):731-737 Authors: Gorkem U, Togrul C Abstract Introduction There are numerous conflicting studies which have addressed the question whether the measurement of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentrations should be done at a certain time during the menstrual cycle. We aimed to investigate AMH fluctuations during the follicular and luteal phases of the menstrual cycle and to determine whether AMH variations, if present, might influence the clinical utilit...

Authors: Arslan E, Gorkem U, Togrul C Abstract Introduction It is still unclear in the literature whether low vitamin D levels play a role in the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), especially with respect to the regulation of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH). Therefore, we aimed to investigate whether there could be a relationship between vitamin D deficiency status and PCOS. Materials and Methods A total of 146 infertile women were divided into two groups according to their ovarian reserve patterns: (i) normal (NOR), and (ii) high (PCOS). The participants were also categorized into two groups accor...

Authors: Shahrokhi SA, Naeini AA Abstract In this case-control study, 60 patients with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) referred to the Nursing and Midwifery Center of Khorramabad, were selected as the case group and 90 non-PCOS patients as the control group. Demographic information and anthropometric indices of each person were collected. The Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) and International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) were completed. After at least 12 h of fasting, 7 mL of blood samples were taken from the patients. There was no statistically significant difference observed in the mean...

(Natural News) In the past eighty years, sperm quality has fallen by 50 percent, beckoning an infertility epidemic among men. Sperm can only be created when there is a healthy balance of hormones, dominated by testosterone. There are chemicals in the household environment that mimic the effects of oestrogen once they are inside the human...

Authors: Simon L, Emery B, Carrell DT Abstract DNA fragmentation, or the accumulation of single- and double-strand DNA breaks, is a common property of sperm, and an increase in the level of sperm DNA fragmentation is known to influence natural reproduction. The effect of sperm DNA fragmentation on male infertility and assisted reproductive treatment (ART) outcomes remains controversial and is one of the most frequently debated topics of reproductive medicine. For the past 30 years, a number of assays have been developed to quantify the level of sperm DNA fragmentation. In this chapter, we review the causes of ...

Authors: Muratori M, Marchiani S, Tamburrino L, Baldi E Abstract Spermatozoa have the task to deliver an intact paternal genome to the oocyte and to support a successful embryo development. The high levels of sperm DNA fragmentation (sDF) found in sub-/infertile men threat human reproduction and health of the offspring. Strategies to prevent the onset of this type of sperm damage are extensively sought.sDF can be induced by factors like lifestyle-related habits, diseases, drugs, aging, infections and exposure to pollutants. At the cell level, all these factors induce sperm DNA breaks by three main mechanisms: apopt...
