Homeopathic medicines exert different mechanisms of action on infertility treatment as indicated in our list below. Crucially it achieves a general well being of the patient by establishing mind-body entity and has a positive effect on implantation as proved in our infertility case study.
Infertility & Homeopathy
Infertility affects 15% of couples who are trying to conceive and have a baby and many turn to homeopathy as a last resort. This after trying many scientific methods like IVF (where embryos fail to develop due to low quality eggs or weak sperm count) and by exhausting conventional medicines to cure infertility. They have ended up spending their hard earned earnings into futile medicines, and sadly have passed through a stage of severe depression that arises from social expectations (a sense of shame in the family and the peer groups). Yet homeopathic infertility treatment success rate is high and provides a ray of hope for couples planning to conceive a baby boy or girl.
Homeopathy experts advise that if the couple does not conceive within a year or two of marriage, they should seek immediate consultation rather than taking homeopathy as the last resort after a decade or so of married life. It is equally more important that girls of marriageable age keep a check on their menstrual cycle to be normal, if not to consult at that period only, so as to rectify any major problems that could arise after marriage. Sterility in females is usually due to disease of the uterus like irregular menses, leucorrhoea, abnormalities of the ovaries, fallopian tubes etc. Correction of such defects leads to conception
Social Importance: The importance of motherhood is underlined by the fact that it meets a whole gamut of emotional and psychological needs of a female. It is the harbinger of social and family security to a woman, it gives her mental peace and happiness, and it provides a sense of social security (in developing countries) that children will look after them in their old age.
Age related risk factors in Infertility
- It has been observed that the reproductive organs do not fully mature fully before the age of 19 years. If such people start their sex life earlier than this, 60% of such adolescent girls develop a scar on the immature cervix which blocks the movement f eggs from ovaries to the uterus through the fallopian tubes. Such women either do not conceive or the pregnancies are ectopic
- As women age so do eggs making conception harder with age as eggs deteriorate in quality and quantity. At the age of 35 years, decline becomes significant and it picks up pace with every passing year
Homeopathic Treatment of Infertility
As Homeopathy concentrates on every individual in his holistic sense and not the disease, there is no specific methodology where the disease can be named and a specific treatment offered. The only approach is to study each case individually. Good Homeopaths study each case using science, human values, philosophy, medicine, and homeopathy in a holistic manner. Each patient is treated differently by prescribing different medicines, and this has worked enormously well in treating thousands of cases. Even in cases where there is no pathological problem (10% of infertility cases) i.e, no identifiable physical problem and yet they are infertile, Homeopathy has found a cure through holistic treatment and counseling of couples by profiling and identifying psychological & emotional problems of patients.
Homeopathic line of treatment involves both men and women suffering infertility and the majority cases involves
- Men – having Oligospermia (less number of sperm count, poor semen quality) and Azoospermia (no sperm count) among other symptoms
- Women – having problems that ranges from Polycystic ovarian diseases (P.C.O.D.), Bulky uterus disease, poor egg quality, uterine fibroids, tubal blocks to repeated abortions among other symptoms. If the woman is not ovulating (having irregular periods is a sign), has pituitary or thyroid problems or have had a history of chlamydia, have a history of fallopian tube surgery, pelvic inflammatory disease, or an ectopic pregnancy then the risk for infertility increases.
