Fertility experts have explained that alcohol consumption, smoking, obesity and body-sizing drugs cause unexplainable infertility in men.
Meanwhile, blockage of tubes as a result of infections at teen age causes infertility in women.
Addressing newsman, clinical operating officer, Dr. Charles Kola noted that even though a man’s test shows he is fertile. Further tests can show, the sperms are not viable enough for reproduction.
Dr. Kola said: “For men, theft that the sperm count is normal doesn’t mean the genetics of the sperm is normal. So there are further tests that show if the sperm are working properly.”
“What causes thee things could be obesity, drugs, alcohol, genetics, and body-sizing drugs. All these things lead to infertility. So that’s part of the things we do here to dig deep on cue of infertility.”
Kola further explained that mere taking drugs when infections are observed doesn’t totally take away the infection.
“Some drugs taken for infection when a lady feels like it, but that’s not the case. One may feel better but the infection continue doing it work unaware, and it won’t occur until 15 – 20 years. and that’s why some people exclaim they got a lady pregnant sometimes ago but that was when the infection was growing and harmless.” He adds
He also, further explained, that there was nothing called toilet infection, sayin that it remains only as slang.
The clinical Director, Dr. Adeleke Daramola said there were two common causes of infertility; blockage of the tubes in women and low sperm count in men. Which is on the increase.
Daramola said “if the young ladies can take care of such things early enough, infertility will be prevented but majority are not aware.”
To ensure the reduction of infertility, Daramola urges young ladies to observe personal hygiene and ensure they treat any form of infection while young before it escalate.
