Immunity Based Infertility
12

Read

Infertility, the inability of a couple to conceive after a period of 12 months of intercourse without the use of contraception, is a worldwide problem. Pathologic immune response is one of its aetiologies even if beyond doubt proofs have not been so far established.

Immune disease is a condition resulting from a conflict between antigens and antibodies. An autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system attacks selfmolecules as a result of a breakdown of immunologic tolerance to autoreactive immune cells . It is admitted today that unexplained infertility is often associated to immunologic factors . This condition may be a result of autoimmunity (in man and woman) or of isoimmunity (in woman).
 

Immunological Fertility Testing
 

People with the following indications may want to consider getting tested by a Reproductive Immunologist. A Reproductive Immunologist differs from a Reproductive Endocrinologist, which most couples are referred to when fertility issues are not determined by an OB&GYN, or other doctor. Reproductive Immunologists have the training and skills to determine if there is in fact an immunological response gone awry that is causing difficulty in getting pregnant or carrying to full term.
