Coconut Water Improves Reproductive Functions in Offspring of High Fat Diet Fed Rats

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.474
Synopsis: 
Assessed in this study, were the hypolipidemic actions of coconut water in the prevention of maternal high fat diet-induced reproductive dysfunction in rats' offspring. The results suggest that coconut water can effectively alleviate the reduction in fertility indices of such offspring.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Maternal high fat diet adversely affects fertility of offspring. Coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) water has hypolipidemic actions in the presence of high fat diets. This study was carried out to determine if coconut water (CW) can protect the reproductive functions of offspring against the effects of maternal high fat diet (HFD).

Hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian Axis in Thyroid Dysfunction

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.038
Synopsis: 
Findings from this study suggest that impairment of reproductive function associated with thyroid dysfunction is in attendant with derangement of hormonal milieu and alteration in reproductive organs cytoarchitecture. Luteinizing hormone and oestradiol are implicated.

ABSTRACT

Background: It has been established that thyroid dysfunction causes impairment of reproductive function. However, laboratory and human studies that associated this with female reproductive hormones are conflicting and data reporting the effects of thyroid dysfunction on reproductive organs are insufficient.

Impaired Fertility in Jamaica Evidence from Fertility Surveys

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.125

Objective: It has been a long held belief that increased contraceptive use is primarily responsible for lowered fertility in Jamaican since the 1970s. However, historically, subfecundity has played a major role in suppressing fertility rates. In order to reveal the prevalence and trend in fertility impairment, a study was conducted using data from the 1989, 1993, 1997 and 2002 reproductive health surveys.
