Infertility and sexual dysfunctions: a systematic literature review.

This study aimed to investigate whether infertility and its treatment affect couple sexuality. A systematic literature review was performed, focusing on female and male sexual dysfunctions due to infertility. The method was descriptive, using a meta-synthesis of scientific research published between 2012 and 2017 in the English language. The search for suitable studies was carried out with the research databases Medline, CINAHL, PubMed and ScienceDirect using the following keywords: infertility, sexual dysfunctions, couple. It can be concluded that infertility negatively affects the sexuality of an infertile couple, which is further proven by a high percentage of sexual dysfunctions (43%-90% among women and 48%-58% among men). Couples report less satisfaction with sexuality. Since lower satisfaction and dysfunctions are closely connected with infertility and its treatment, couples might benefit from sexual therapy and support during the process of infertility treatment. Further research should focus on the evaluation of different psychological interventions that would address sexuality in couples when diagnosed and treated for infertility.

Discussion and conclusion.TheFSHB c. ‐211G >  T polymorphism does not affect SC numbers or SCWL, thereby in principle maintaining the spermatogenic potential. The previously observed clinical phenotype for theFSHB genotype might therefore be caused by a hypo ‐stimulated spermatogenesis and not due to a decreased SC number.

Infertile couples are often very confused when they go to IVF doctors , because they get widely varying different opinions , and they're not sure whom they can trust.There are many reasons why IVF doctors don ’t agree with each other.For one thing, our IVF technology is still not perfect, which means we still cannot even make an accurate diagnosis, and have to label many couples as having “unexplained infertility” because we cannot clearly and accurately identify the underlying problem.Because no one really knows what the truth is, everyone interprets tests the way they want, based on their experience and...

is C, Takenaka A Abstract The therapeutic range of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors (PDE5) inhibitors is getting wider in the last years. This review study focuses on the potential employment of PDE5 inhibitors as an adjunct tool for the therapeutic management of male infertility. The literature tends to suggest a beneficial effect of PDE5 inhibitors on Leydig and Sertoli cells secretory function. It also appears that PDE5 inhibitors play a role in the regulation of the contractility of the testicular tunica albuginea and the epididymis. Moreover scientific data suggest that PDE5 inhibitors enhance...
