High cholesterol in medical language is called hypercholesterolemia. Hypercholesterolemia is a type of disorder that is included in dyslipidemia / disorders due to abnormal blood lipid levels. This condition often causes no symptoms, but the presence of these conditions will increase a person to experience heart disease.
You need to know that cholesterol has an important role in forming male and female hormonal substances and the formation of vitamin D in the body. Female reproductive hormones (estrogen and progesterone) and male (testosterone), are produced through cholesterol metabolism in the body. Therefore, it can be said that cholesterol levels indirectly affect male and female fertility. Several studies have agreed that in addition to increasing the risk of heart disease, hypercholesterolemia and dyslipidemia (blood lipid level disorders) also increase the risk of fertility problems in both men and women. This disturbance occurs at the hormonal level. Reproductive hormones have an important role in human fertility function, namely stimulating the process of formation and maturation of sperm in male testes, as well as the formation and release of eggs from female ovaries as well as regulating the menstrual cycle each month.
Meanwhile, hyperuricemia (high uric acid) is not certain about its impact on male reproductive health. However, based on current medical research sources, hyperuricemia in women is often associated with menstrual cycle disorders and anovulatory conditions (not producing eggs during the fertile period even though the menstrual cycle is normal).
Both of these conditions, both hypercholesterolemia and hyperuricemia, can affect male and female fertility in a hormonal level, not in the context of fertilization between sperm and egg.
Pregnancy can be realized when the sperm that is ejaculated from a man meets an egg in a woman's fallopian tube and the fetus then travels to the uterus. Therefore, in your pregnancy program, it is important to evaluate whether the sperm produced is good enough both in terms of quantity and quality. In addition, make sure an egg is produced every time the fertile period arrives. It should be noted that the female egg (ovum) is produced during the fertile period and can only last for 24 hours after being released from the ovary, while the sperm can last 3-5 days in the uterus.
There are several examinations that should be done for couples who are running a pregnant program, including:
Uterine ultrasound Analysis of sperm. Examination of female hormone levels. X-ray HSG examination. Regarding your condition, try to normalize cholesterol and uric acid levels with the help of drugs and changes in daily lifestyle. Eating nutritious and healthy foods, avoiding high-fat foods, multiplying vegetables and fruit, consuming foods or supplements that contain folic acid and vitamin E are highly recommended. Don't forget to exercise regularly every day. That is the information that I can convey, hope it helps
