Infertility is defined by the failure to conceive, after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. It is a rather common condition in recent years in Greece, as according to research 1 in 6 couples experience this difficulty. The common causes of infertility seem to be a) ovulation disorders, b) sperm disorders, c) lesions of the fallopian tubes and d) unexplained cause (20%). One in five couples shows inability to conceive, without an identifiable disorder. Homeopathy can effectively help with infertility no matter what the cause is. It affects the neuro-hormonal operation axis of a woman, balancing so the irregular menstrual cycle and restoring normal ovulation in women who have such disorders. Thus it can help in many kinds of cycle disorders, such as hypomenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, metrorrhagia and the appearance of anovulation cycles.
Regarding sperm disorders, it may help in the treatment of chronic infections of the male genital tract, such as chronic prostatitis or epididymitis, resulting in oligospermia or decreased sperm mobility, leading to improvement in the functionality of sperm.
In the case of disorder of the fallopian tubes function due to chronic infection, homeopathy can halt the progression of the chronicity and help restore normal function. All cases, of course, require simultaneous monitoring of women by a gynaecologist and the relevant examinations, haematological and radiological, in order to confirm the normalisation of the functioning of the genital system.
In the case of unexplained infertility, homeopathy can help a lot, because of the holistic action in the human body. In combination with psychotherapy, it can solve the unconscious blockages in the operation of neuro-pituitary-gonadal axis and brings not only the much desired conception but also the possibility of a smooth continuation of the pregnancy until childbirth.
Even in the case of IVF, we have noticed from our own experience, it becomes possible to directly reach the implantation and maintenance of pregnancy after homeopathic treatment in women, who despite repeated previous attempts, had not managed to maintain their pregnancy and to carry out.
