Male Infertility

Thousands of couples each year will experience infertility. Estimates suggest that more than 15% of couples are infertile, meaning, that even with frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse, they are still not able to conceive a child. While many may assume that infertility lies with the woman, almost half of infertility cases involve the man.  Male infertility means that the man is not able to conceive a child. This may be because there is a low sperm production, a blockage, or the man has sperm that are essentially immobile. Illness, trauma, injury, acute and chronic health problems are often the blame and cause for male infertility. While the only primary symptom is not being able to produce a child, there are some other symptoms that might suggest infertility as well including a swelling of the testicles, delayed ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and signs of a chromosomal or hormonal abnormality.  If a man has a low sex drive, has been unable to conceive a child after a year of regular, unprotected sex, has ejaculation problems or sexual dysfunction and has a history of prostate, testicle, groin or other pelvic disorders, it becomes important to get a full physical to rule out any problems.

Kidney Stone Disease

A kidney stone is a solid mass of hard crystals and granules that have separated from the urine within the urinary tract. If these collections of hard-developed crystals remain small enough, they can pass through the ureters to the urine stream. If they are large enough, they will block the flow of urine and cause a considerable amount of pain as they try and pass. Kidney stones can range in size as small as grains of sand or as large as golf balls. They can either stay in your kidneys or travel out of your body through the urinary tract. Kidney stones can reside in the kidney for a while without any pain whatsoever. However, a sudden, severe pain is associated with the travel of the kidney stone from the kidney to the bladder.  Kidney stones are probably the most painful urological disorder known. Each year, more than a half million people head towards their local emergency rooms to receive treatment for kidney stones.  Some people are more susceptible to get a kidney stone(s). Diet, nutrition and a family history do a play a part, but the most common cause of kidney stones is not drinking enough water. It's important to drink enough water to keep your urine clear (about 8 to 10 glasses of water a day). Other causes for kidney stones include: inflammatory bowel disease, gout, Atkins diet, urinary tract infection, vitamin C (over 2 grams per day), or calcium supplements if taken without food or if used excessively.  Kidney stone symptoms include severe or extreme pain in your side, back, or groin that does not go away, urine that looks pink or red due to blood in urine, cloudy urine, burning sensation while urinating, fever and chills, nausea or feeling sick to your stomach, and/or vomiting. Kidney stone symptoms will range from person to person.
