Cause For Infertility – The Dental Connection to Infertility

Cause For Infertility – Thinking about getting pregnant? Some couples seem to get pregnant simply by talking about it. For others, it takes plenty of patience and a bit of luck. You’ve only been trying for a few months, but you’re already starting to get annoyed rather than excited when you see a pregnant woman.

Cause For Infertility – If you have been trying to conceive for any length of time you have probably been given advice from friends or family. You have likely heard the suggestion that you need to relax and stop trying so hard. Maybe you were told something like this “I knew this couple that tried for years to get pregnant and as soon as they stopped trying, they got pregnant”. Or another common statement you might here is a story about someone who finally decided to adopt and then they turned up pregnant.

Cause For Infertility – Having a baby can be the one of the most exciting times in a couple’s life. From conception to birth, pregnancy is usually a happy and joyful journey. But if you are having difficulties conceiving, the pregnancy journey can become fraught with complications and worries. On top of all this, medications and fertility treatments can be extremely off-putting and expensive. If you and your partner are struggling with fertility issues, you may want to look into ways that you can help to improve your fertility naturally. Before you got depress with the situation, you might consider to visit your dentist. It might surprise you to know that your dentist might be able to help.

It turns out, your silver amalgam fillings might be contributing to the problem. Dental amalgam fillings are made of 50% Mercury which is mixed with Silver, Tin, Zinc and Copper. Mercury contained in Amalgam can affect fertility in both men and women.

Mercury is one of the most toxic metals humans are exposed to, being even more toxic than arsenic or lead. Dental authorities long-maintained that the mercury was “locked” into the filing and, therefore, presented no danger to human health. Research has subsequently shown that this statement was patently false, as mercury vapor is released for silver/mercury dental fillings 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and will continue to release mercury vapors as long as the filling remains in the tooth. “The average absorbed daily dose for an individual with 8 amalgam fillings is estimated to be 10 mcg/day, with a range that may exceed 100 mcg/day” (Toxic Teeth: The Chronic Mercury Poisoning of Modern Man. Vimy Chemistry & Industry 2 January 1995 17)Mercury is very toxic and is stored mainly in the Brain, Kidney and Liver.

Research has also shown, that 80 to 100% of the mercury vapor inhaled into the lungs enters the blood and is subsequently transferred to the brain and all organs and tissues of the body. Over 75% of the population are believed to have mercury dental fillings. In the U.S., this amount to over 145 million individuals who are constantly exposed to a poison that has been implanted in their body, and in most instances, without their knowledge.

At this point you are probably wondering what the aforementioned facts have to do with “fertility.” Great many studies have been published confirming in many cases of infertility, the woman or the man or both have become infertile because of exposure to amounts of mercury from their dental fillings, their food and the environment, at levels their bodies were not able to accommodate. In the woman, this is usually manifested in the form of some type of hormonal disorder preventing conception, while in the man it is usually related to causing a defect either in sperm motility or vitality.

Men, Mercury and Reproduction

Mercury has an affinity for sperm. Mercury and other heavy metals are found in male ejaculate and seminal fluid, with the heaviest amount in the sperm. For instance, zinc, manganese, and selenium are contributing factors to a sperm’s motility or ability to move. If it can’t move, it can’t travel the immense distance to the egg. Mercury adversely affects zinc, manganese, and selenium which can cause a man’s fertility to be diminished.

Besides the fact that mercury disrupts all living systems via many different pathways, there are two ways mercury in male reproductive fluids may be a problem with respect to infertility. 1) A women may be hypersensitive or allergic to mercury and thus have antibodies to mercury which will then react with the sperm and kill them. 2) Zinc, manganese, and selenium are contributing factors to a sperm’s motility or ability to move. If it can’t move, it can’t travel the immense distance to the egg. Mercury adversely inhibits zinc, manganese, and selenium which can cause a man’s fertility to be diminished. Thus there can be an indirect effect of mercury on sperm. Selenium is also involved in sperm motility as well as in normal development of sperm. Selenium has a very high affinity for mercury and is one of the body’s natural protectors against mercury. If the selenium is tied up with mercury it is not available for other important functions like healthy sperm.

Another side effect of mercury in humans is loss of libido. We can all appreciate how this can have an effect on fertility! Guess what was always used in contraceptive gels because it kills sperm? Right … mercury. Mercury also inhibits the synthesis of DNA in sperm forming cells. DNA is what carries our genetic information.

So much for the men, what about the other half?

Women are not as simple as men (but all you women know that). There is a lot more going on and therefore a lot more areas mercury can have an impact. Remember mercury from fillings comes off in the vapor form. It has no electrical charge-it is elemental mercury. It goes to the blood and in one minute circulates to the whole body. Having no charge it easily passes to various tissues and organs and then becomes charged. It then binds to proteins and is thus called inorganic mercury. Mercury can destroy the biological function of any protein it binds to.

According to the Center for Disease Control one in twelve women of child-bearing age already have unsafe blood levels of mercury. This is scary because blood is not even a good indicator of mercury-it is when it leaves the blood and binds to proteins that it becomes a problem.

Cause For Infertility – Remember a woman’s body is very complex. With all the rising and falling of various hormones, mercury accumulates in the hypothalamus and pituitary. Both of these hormone producing glands are responsible for the proper functioning of the female hormones. Fertility is based on the functional integration of the hypothalamus, pituitary, ovaries and uterus. The hypothalamus produces Gonatatrophin Releasing Hormone which tells the pituitary to release the Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH). Studies on women who work around mercury show menstrual cycle disturbances, hypomenorrhea, or hypermenorrhea. Very often they report tremendous improvement when the mercury is removed and chelated out of their bodies.

Cause For Infertility – Suffice it to say, I believe that any couple having trouble conceiving should be checked for heavy metal toxicity. Your dentist can evaluate your mouth and determine the number of amalgam fillings you have. Then you can discuss your options with respect to replacing these fillings with other materials and treatments. So if you are having difficulty conceiving, it might be time to investigate dental infertility treatment.
