Infertility is a reproductive problem that defined as the inability to carry a pregnancy after a certain period of time.

Causes

  • Vaginal factors: such as vaginal atresia, vaginal inflammation, etc
  • Cervical factors: cervical stenosis, polyps, tumors, etc
  • Uterus factors: uterine fibroids, endometrium inflammation, disformation of urerus, etc
  • Fallopian tube factors: the stenosis, inflammation of fallopian tube, etc
  • Ovary factors: premature ovarian failure, ovarian tumors, ovarian cyst, etc
  • Endocrine factors
  • Congenital factors
  • General conditions
  • Psychiatric – neurological factors
  • Others

Symptoms

For female patients, the symptoms of infertility may present as dysmenorrheal, abnormal leucorrhea, abdominal pain, irregular menstruation, amenorrhea, galactorrhea and endocrine dyscrasia symptoms, etc. For male patients, the  symptoms of infertility may present as less seminal fluid than normal people, sexual impotence and premature ejaculation, retained testicle (or Cryptorchidism), hemospermia syndrome, varicocele, abnormality of genital organ and azoospermia.

Treatment for Infertility in ReLife

Treatment for infertility differs from the causes. Fertility medication, medical device, surgery are commonly applied for treating infertility. In vitro fertilization (IVF) and other techniques like ICSI, GIFT and ZIFT may be suggested if the conservative treatments failed, which are called assisted reproductive technology.

In ReLife, we offer comprehensive and effective treatment options for our patients, including cell-based gene therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Cell-based Gene Therapy for Infertility

Utilizing the molecular biology method, cell-based gene therapy is an innovative treatment method that implants the hepatocyte growth factor – HGF via autologous cells into patient’s body. With targeting lesion organs, it can continuously and stably repair the lesion tissue, so as to eliminate the inner factors that caused the disease and treat the infertility.

Adipose tissue is an active endocrine and paracrine organ, which secretes various cytokines and biological factors. The regular secretion of adipose tissue regulates and controls the balance of energy in body, and also plays a role in the inflammation procedure. Adipose tissue is full of adipose stem cells, which have the ability to be easily cultivated in vitro and multiple differentiation capacity. It can effectively participate in the regenerative and repair procedures of both tissue and organs.

By taking advantage of adipose stem cell tropism, HGF will be carried to the lesion reproductive region by adipose stem cells, enabling HGF continuously and stably effect and improve the blood circulation, as well as improve the survival rate and efficiency of adipose stem cells, which makes the treatment effect much better than single application of stem cell therapy. It plays a key role in treating reproductive disorder, repairing the reproductive function, and promoting the balance of endocrinology system.

Traditional Chinese MedicineTraditional

Chinese Medicine is a green, safe and effective treatment method for infertility. According to the theory “adjust menstruation prior to pregnancy” in the Yellow Emperor or Huangdi Neijing, perform acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion and natural therapy to regulate the Chong and Ren channels, adjust five main organs, improve the Qi and Blood, promote ovulation and improve the fallopian tube condition, which has evident treatment effects on infertility caused by endocrinology reason with less side effect. The babies born after the therapy are also proved to be healthy.
