Patient Comments: Infertility - Cause

What is the cause of your infertility?

Comment from: KIMBERLY DIANE, 3-6 Female (Caregiver) Published: July 19

Having issues is one of the most common problems in marriages today. My husband and I are married for 5 years now. I was unable to conceive as I was diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease and I had an infection of the uterus and fallopian tube due to chlamydia. I sought all medical personnel's opinion but couldn't get a solution to it. Unfortunately for us the doctor confirmed my husband to have watery sperm as a result of the high level of sugar in his blood.

Approximately 10 years ago I had corrective surgery for a prolapsed uterus. Since then I have suffered severe incontinence. Doctors keep insisting that it is due to childbirth but my children were all in their late 30s to early 40s (now all in mid-40s) when the problem first occurred and it seems a large coincidence that the incontinence didn't start until after the prolapse surgery. I have been prescribed two different kinds of medication to reduce the incontinence, both of which caused side effects so they had to be discontinued. I have been doing pelvic floor exercises for years and they haven't helped. I have no other health problems but consultants will not offer surgery. I know a woman who had the same problem as myself, she had surgery 5 years ago and has had no problems since. She is approximately the same age as myself and now has her life back but I am still having to live with this problem.

My being unable to conceive is related to my partner's low sperm count. After doing a lot of tests he is taking infertility pills to assist in improving his sperm count. Never give up in life, everything happens for a reason.

I was told by NHS (National Health Service) doctors that my infertility was unexplained. I had all the tests taken and everything was fine, so we put it down to stress. This lasted over a period of 3 years between blood tests, Hyspan angiogram, internal scans and Clomid trial for 6 months. There was nothing wrong found. I had laparoscopy done privately at a hospital as was suggested and they found nothing wrong. Then they had some expensive blood tests done in a private clinic to check for "natural killer cells" and I came up positive! This is when your white blood cells or your immune system is overactive and rejects anything in your body that is foreign. A fetus has your partner's DNA as well, so does not recognize it and expels it from the body! I am now having treatment to calm down my immunity.

I can't confirm it was what is known as norovirus but a neighbor said that there seemed to be bouts all over. I live in Turkey in an expat environment and she said that this seems to be in UK Scotland as well. My grandchildren (visiting) experienced the same symptoms as my own, age range from 3 to 15, which were diarrhea, violent vomiting, and exhaustion. It lasted about 12 hours and then I needed loads of sleep. It happened Friday evening and it is now Monday. I felt much better Sunday but still feel effects of tiredness. My husband vomited less I believe but also had severe headaches. Not sure if this is any help because it was not medically diagnosed.

I was just told I have osteoporosis. I am feeling sad. Wish I had taken better care of my body. Less soda and less wine. Probably should have tried to drink milk too. My grandmother had terrible osteoporosis, she broke her hip three times. I walk about two miles a day and have done other weight bearing exercises for years, but now, we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
