It has been almost half a year since the “three -child” policy has been liberalized, but the research and development of the workshop found that many people are not so active about the “three babies”. Even young people said: I don’t even want to give birth to one child.Second child, third child?
One family does not have children, there are two kinds of reasons: one is that they do not want to give birth, for example, they feel that the economic pressure of raising children is too high to affect the quality of life; the other is that they cannot be born, such as suffering from certain diseases that affect fertility.
BMJ Sub -journal: inflammatory arthritis affects male fertility
In August of this year, a study published by the BMJ sub-published “Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases” shows that the peak of male education (31-40 years old) is diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis before or during or or during fertility and fertility and fertility.The decline in fertility is related.

Researchers from the Ilasms Medical Center from the Netherlands recruited 628 male volunteers with inflammatory arthritis in 8 local hospitals to participate in the investigation.
Researchers divide the volunteers into three groups according to the age of diagnosis of inflammatory arthritis: before the peak of childbearing age (≤ 30 years), peak period of childbearing age (31-40 years), after the peak of childbearing age (≥ 41), through comparisonVolunteers expect the number of children, actual children, the number of partners’ pregnancy, fertility problem consultation rate, longing for pregnancy, etc. to evaluate the relationship between inflammatory arthritis and male fertility and fertility.
It was found that the willingness of the three groups of people was not very strong, and the number of children expected was 1.75, 1.86, and 2.03, but the confirmed team of ≤30 and 31-40 years old had the number of children (1.32 and 1.56, respectively).The actual number of children (1.88), which is significantly lower than ≥41 years old, is also lower than the average fertility level of men in the Netherlands (1.79).
In addition, two groups of volunteers who diagnosed inflammatory arthritis before the age of 40 were not willing to fertility (12.03%, 10.34%) and the proportion of medical evaluation (20.61%, 20.69%) for fertility problems were significantly higher than ≥41.The confirmation of the age (3.98%, 11.36%).
How does inflammatory arthritis affect male fertility?
1. Don’t want to give birth
The survey found that many people choose not to have children because they are worried about “inheritance of arthritis to children” or “drugs for treating arthritis.”Some people are even troubled by arthritis for a long time, and their anxiety and depression occur, “even more dare to ask for children.”
2. Can’t give birth
Researchers have found that their sperm abnormal rates have reached 6.77%, and their sperm abnormal rates of fertility peak groups (31-40 years old) are as high as 8.22%, which is much higher than the general level (2%2%(2%To.
Why does this impact?
Researchers have raised some conjectures: First, the inflammatory arthritis itself is related to excessive immune response, various immune factors interacting, causing “misunderstanding” to the reproductive system; second, the side effects of immunosuppressive drugs for the treatment of inflammatory arthritis, Leading to decreased gonad function and decreased sperm quality.
In summary: inflammatory arthritis may affect male fertility, and patients must treat them in time.
