Written and edited by leading, internationally recognized clinicians and scientists in reproductive medicine and related fields, this unique text is a practical and comprehensive review of the clinical and scientific significance of unexplained male and female infertility and its management. The book is divided into thematic sections to ensure the most useful presentation of topics, opening with definitions and epidemiology of unexplained infertility, including discussion of the WHO’s cutoff values for human semen characteristics and its ramifications. Sections covering male and female reproductive pathophysiology follow respectively, covering biological, genetic and environmental causative factors, with a subsequent section on evaluative techniques for male and female patients. Expectant, medical and surgical treatment strategies comprise the fifth section of the book, where active interventions and outcomes of each treatment modality are carefully considered. The final section discusses assisted reproductive techniques to manage unexplained infertility, such as intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization, as well as future perspectives. Thoughtful and enlightening, Unexplained Infertility: Pathophysiology, Evaluation and Treatment will be an invaluable resource for all clinicians and scientists working in the fields of reproductive medicine and infertility.
In the first half of this book the discovery of sperm and the man's role in reproduction is considered together with a review of how the past affects the present medical management of male infertility and the problems that bedevil it.

Publisher: Psychology Press
How do men react to diagnosis of male infertility and how, if at all, are all their lives affected by it? Male infertility is commonplace yet the male experience of it has been woefully neglected. Male Infertility - Men Talking explores these issues by gathering together men's stories and seeing what common strands, if any, exist between them. Mary-Claire Mason explores the past and present medical management of male infertility as this forms an essential backdrop to the men's stories but the main emphasis is on how men's lives are affected. In the first half of this book the discovery of sperm and the man's role in reproduction is considered together with a review of how the past affects the present medical management of male infertility and the problems that bedevil it. The male voice predominates in the second painful events and relationships with families and friends, their feeling of isolation, their medical experiences, the importance of biological fatherhood, and their hopes for the future.
This book is concerned primarily with male infertility and it will be evident that this is now a substantial subject in its own right.
Author: T.B. Hargreave
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Twenty five years ago the subject of male infertility scarcely existed in urological practice. At that time semen analysis was a rather cursory microscopic test, the scope of endocrine and hormone tests was limited and debate about the relevance of a varicocele was only just beginning. Since then, progress has owed about as much to sociological change as medical progress. Acceptance that problems of fertility should be shared between partners is now no longer questioned and the willingness of both husband and wife to recognise this and to seek help has been an important change in clinical practice. This book is concerned primarily with male infertility and it will be evident that this is now a substantial subject in its own right. However a need for a broad prospective in this subject is emphasised by a chapter on female assessment as well as reference to female aspects of infertility wherever relevant so that the reader remains properly aware that this subject is a problem for the couple. Because our knowledge of this subject is changing so rapidly, Mr Hargreave has separated the contents into two parts. The first is concerned with basic biological problems and investigations with a full evaluation of current knowledge and methods. Also, details of new techniques that offer the prospect of real progress are a special attraction in this section.

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject Biology - Developmental Biology, grade: c, , course: Pharmacy, language: English, abstract: The aim of this work is to perform a systematic review of literature to determine the causes and treatment aspects of infertility. This work also aimes to interpret the findings in the context of recent clinical practices and suggest optimal treatment and management aspects regarding infertility. This review focuses on different factors including the ovulatory factor, utero-tubal peritoneal factor, semen migration factor and the male factor. Some of these infertile conditions are treated as unexplained infertility problems to some extent. This review process deploys a new strategy to translate the recent research findings and evidence-based causes into a simplified focused cause of male and female infertility. The development of molecular biology and biotechnology as well as genetics has profound influence on infertility study on causes, assessment and treatment process. Infertility is a qualification of a situation where couple has tried to achieve pregnancy for more than one year without success. The basic work-up doesn’t find a reason for the failure in more than 30 percent cases. Many of the defects related to infertility is still unknown.

This volume provides a comprehensive account of the evaluation and treatment of the infertile male. It is suitable for all physicians who encounter this common medical problem. Despite the prevalance of male infertility as a common underlying cause of infertility, its evaluation and treatment remains a difficult and misunderstood area for many doctors - a problem this volume aims to overcome. It includes chapters which review the full range of modern techniques now available for analysing semen and identifying the underlying cause of infertility, and then goes on to consider the various treatment options. The volume also discusses endocrine assessment and treatment, psychological aspects of male infertility, and includes a chapter on female infertility. This will be a valuable source of reference for general practitioners and physicians, urologists and gynaecologists.

This is followed by a review of modern developments in the genetics of male fertility and proceeds to a further chapter on the role of surgical procedures used in the treatment.
Author: T. D. Glover
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This contemporary account of male fertility provides a much needed bridge between those seeking to understand the subject from an evolutionary and biological perspective and those with clinical responsibility for the investigation and treatment of infertility. Accordingly, the first half of the book deals with the evolutionary aspects of male reproduction and sperm competition, sperm production and delivery in man and other animals, spermatogenesis and epididymal function, sperm transport in the female tract and the apparent decline in human sperm count. The second part of the book puts greater emphasis on clinical problems and opens with a discussion of intracytoplasmic sperm injection, its value and limitations. This is followed by a review of modern developments in the genetics of male fertility and proceeds to a further chapter on the role of surgical procedures used in the treatment. Semen analysis is critically reviewed and the molecular techniques now being used in preimplantation diagnosis and in the study of mitochondrial inheritance are fully described. Taken together these chapters, written by an international team of authors, illustrate the breadth of vision needed to tackle the problem of male fertility.

Uncontrolled population growth, a significant problem for many countries, depresses real living standards in all developing areas. As a corollary, un controlled population growth also stresses the ability to deliver adequate reproductive health care on both national and individual levels. To focus on this and related problems an International Congress to examine many aspects of male and female Reproductive Health Center Care was held on 10-15 October 1982 in Maui, Hawaii, USA. This volume is a result of the proceedings from the 'Symposium on Male Fertility and its Regulation' which was a part of the Reproductive Health Care Congress. The organizers of this symposium recognized the need to focus male reproductive understanding on contraceptive development. The ultimate objective was and still is to produce a variety of safe and effective male contraceptives similar to that accomplished in the female. Speakers were invited to review the state of the art in several areas related to male contra ception, reproductive toxicity and reproductive biology. The abstracts of these sessions were published as a special issue of Archives of Andrology (Vol. 9, No.1, August, 1982). Subsequently, this volume was assembled from key papers presented at the Symposium. Additionally, invited man uscripts from leaders in specific areas were solicited to provide additional range to the topics covered.
