Chromosomes in the nucleus of every cell in the body contain the human genetic material that is passed on to the child. If there are anomalies in the genetic material, then there is an increased risk of another miscarriage. Let‘s consider this point in more detail by dealing with DNA breaks and “lost” genetic information.
When cell division occurs, the DNA with the individual genetic information is passed on to each individual new cell. However, if there are DNA breaks in the sperm cells, then the new cell will be incomplete and thus not functional. This can ultimately cause the embryo to stop developing.
The intake of PROFORTIL® can reduce the risk of ”damaged” sperm DNA for the man:
In order to understand this problem, it is important to know that the function of a sperm is to safely transport the genetic information (DNA) to the egg cell. When DNA breaks are increased, the sperm can no longer fulfil its function. Men over the age of 35 with the desire to have children should consider the increased risk of sperm DNA breaks, particularly if they want to fulfil the desire to have children with their partner. PROFORTIL® is therefore particularly recommended for men over the age of 35 because the probability of DNA breaks increases from this age onwards.
DNA breaks in the sperm cells can reduce the chances of successful natural or artificial insemination and thus increase the risk of another miscarriage. There are various test procedures for investigating fragmented DNA in sperm cells. In any case, multiple clinical studies have demonstrated the positive effect of PROFORTIL® on sperm DNA.
Sperm analyses in an andrology laboratory are among the diagnostic steps that are important when trying to fulfil the desire to have children. The programme includes the preparation of substantiated spermiograms as well as the effective processing and evaluation of sperm in connection with fertility treatments. This also applies to the freezing of sperm or testicular tissue in liquid nitrogen (cryopreservation).
