Did one know that deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause infertility in both men and women?

If one has been trying to urge pregnancy for an extended time, but with no success, then one among the explanations might be lack of vitamin B12 in your body.

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin and plays a vital role in producing the genetic components, DNA and RNA of the egg and the sperm. Deficiency of Vitamin B12 results in  infertility in both men and women.

In men:

Vitamin B12 is helpful in the generation and maturation of the sperms. A deficiency of this vitamin may negatively affect the sperm count or cause subsequent issues:

• Low sperm count

• DNA damage in sperm cells

• Low motility of sperms

• Loss of libido

• Premature Ejaculation.

In women:

Conception is not easy for a woman with Vitamin B12 deficiency. The chances of foetal loss are higher even if one gets pregnant. The lack of B12 possibly interferes with the reproduction process that leads to the following problems:

• Abnormal ovulation

• Disruption in normal cell division

• Impaired development of the egg

• Difficulty implanting the zygote within the uttering lining.

Vitamin B12 enhances the processes involved in reproduction; prepare one's body for conception and assists in carrying the baby to term. Couples facing infertility should consult a fertility doctor about the vitamin B12 levels in the body, and if found deficient, should immediately start supplementing with B12 enriched foods or supplements. The Infertility specialist will do an array of investigations prior to zeroing down on the exact cause of infertility to start the treatment regimen.
