Doctors and scientists globally have indicated hyperbaric oxygenation as a concurrent treatment when dealing with human and bloodstock fertility issues due to the expected benefits one can achieve from sessions in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and as hyperbaric oxygenation treats hypoxic injuries at a cellular level it is extremely relevant for fertility issues.
The reproductive system works best when there is no inflammation present. Blood sample analysis proves how hyperbaric oxygenation reduces inflammation throughout the body and also increases the production of new blood vessels ensuring increased blood flow to the reproductive system.
With approximately 15% of infertility linked to conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease and endometriosis these benefits are significant as they specifically target some of the symptoms one experiences with these conditions.
Studies show that hyperbaric oxygenation significantly improves the quality of the endometrium, augments the endometrial receptivity as the thickness of the uterine lining is increased. Adequate thickness of the uterine lining is vital for successful implantation. The increased oxygen supply also increases ovarian volume and egg quality.
Reducing the risk of male fertility issues is addressed using hyperbaric oxygenation. Erectile dysfunction is helped due to the increased blood flow following sessions of hyperbaric oxygen but what many don’t know is that it also enhances the quality, motility and integrity of sperm by balancing the PH level, healing tissue damage caused by treatments such as radiation therapy and lowering inflammation throughout the male reproductive system.
Studies have also shown a significant decrease in DNA fragmentation following consecutive/daily sessions of hyperbaric oxygenation. DNA fragmentation can be a major cause of ‘unexplained infertility’, recurrent miscarriage and failed IUI or IVF cycles.
