Disadvantages of LH

LH hormone is prescribed in assisted reproduction treatments to achieve a pregnancy.

It may have disadvantages if the dose is not correctly adjusted:

Although the luteinising hormone stimulates the synthesis of steroids, a too high LH level may also inhibit the synthesis of steroids. Therefore, too high LH levels may have negative effects on follicle development. Follicles suffer an atresia or an early luteinization.

Too low LH levels show worse results in ovarian stimulation. Therefore, an adequate and more or less constant LH level is needed during ovulation induction.

LH disadvantages

The suitable amount of LH is administered to the patients indicated for using LH as a medicine, this is why the prescription of LH does not have disadvantages.

With regard to the rest of patients, administering LH entails the risk that follicles suffer an early luteinization or an atresia.

In addition, they do not have the advantages that are noticed in the patients indicated for the LH prescription.

    High heat on the scrotum area can cause a reduction of sperm count. The real problem is not heat, but the American Diet. In 1940, the average male had a sperm count of 166 million/ml. In 1990, the count was 66 million. There is a linear downward straight line curve that shows that by 2013, the count will be around 5 million/ml. Since it takes 5 million sperm to fertilize one egg on the average, we will be in a crisis at that time. At present, around 17% of adult males are impotent due to the sperm count. This percentage is growing at an alarming rate. By 2050, the curve shows ZERO sperm in the Average American male. This should be a huge wake-up call, but instead, we are told that spraying foods, chemically treating soils, and genetic engineering is not hurting us. Really? Then why is nature trying to eliminate us? I don’t hear any of the politicians talking about this issue! I also don’t hear them telling Americans that 53% are chronically ill and that our food industry, drug industry, and medical people are getting us into a worse and worse predicament. Can you only imagine how a candidate would get money if he told the truth and raised real issues facing Americans today, instead of trying to create a HUGE fiasco of a health care system that is going to cause major financial disaster when trying to treat over 50% obese people by 2013 as predicted, and over 50% of all Americans having diabetes by 2015! Yes, you need to worry about your sperm count, but more importantly, you need to worry about any babies you may possibly be fortunate enough to have before you loose all your sperm count. Good luck to us all!
