The reason for repeated failed coneption might be increased prolactin production

Prolactin is a hormone that control many chemical processes in body. The most important and key process is the lactation initiation. Another not less important is during the strong mother – child bond creation which failure can cause possible mother absence for a little child. 
In normal life prolactin doesn’t play such an important role. It production is major during night time mainly in REM sleep stage. During daytime it is mainly used during the psychical balance disturbance and coming stress situation. It means that its main purpose is to get the organism ready to cope with an upcoming stress situation. The place of its origin is the hypophysis in brain.
Hyperprolactemy – it is an increased prolactin level contained in blood. This increased production mostly causes menstrual cycle disturbances where usually goes completely away. This is caused by the prolactin’s effect that blocks eggs grow process (This is a main cause in the 10% of the cases).
Precautions in hyperprolactemy
If the woman fails to conceive it is necessary to perform some examinations before the treatment process itself. These examinations include blood tests. Blood test for the prolactin level should be performed during morning time approximately 2 hours after the wake up when the physiological prolactin level is still low and does not distort results. If the high prolactin level is confirmed the treatment follows. The treatment is usually in form of pills that lower the prolactin level.
For some women it is possible to determine clear cause of the trouble. This cause is usually non-benign cancer of the hypophysis in brain. If the tumor is smaller than 10cm (3.9inch) it is the microprolactinom. Tumor bigger than 10mm (3.9inch) is called macroprolactinom. In this case the pharmacological treatment is used as well. This treatment not only leads to lowering the level of created prolactin but also the total amount of prolactin in the body. In more rare cases, where the pharmacological treatment is not successful is possible to use radiotherapy using Laksell´s gamma knife.
How to recognize higher production of prolactin? (Hyperprolactemy)
·         Menstrual disorders (total disappearance of menstrual cycle)
·         Problems in conceiving
·         Sensitivity and pain in the breast area
·         Secretion from one or both breast
How to recognize lower production of prolactin? (Hypoprolactemy)
·         Usually not even recognized
·         Troubles with the beginning of lactation (or no lactation at all)

Because prolactin is a stress hormone, it is true that the more woman is stressed out the more prolactin level increases and with longer periods of these episodes the issue can become chronic. That’s why the best prevention for the infertility caused by any reason is the calm and well balanced environment.
Another reason for infertility might be endometriosis
Endometriosis is the common reason for the women infertility. It is a chronic disease characteristic for its endometrium outside of the vaginal area. It is quite a common disease that affects approximately 5-10% of women population in reproductive age. Up to 70% is recidivist.
Endometriosis symptoms:
·         Irregular painful menstruation
·         Pain during sexual intercourse (can lead to its refusal)
·         Chronic pain of stomach
·         Fertility issues
Endometriosis and infertility
One of the complications of endometriosis is the lowered throughput of fallopian tubes and lower production of ovulocytes in ovaries that can lead to the total infertility. Endometriosis occurs in 7-10% of women in their reproductive age.  Incidence for women that are already treated for infertility is 6-8 times higher.
Endometriosis treatment
Endometriosis is hormonally dependent illness and so the primary treatment should always be hormonal. If needed the solution is always to undergo a surgical treatment or use analgesics treatment that should be just a supplementary treatment for hormonal treatment.  
Main target for the hormonal treatment is to temporarily cancel menstruation and thanks to that suppress the endometrium growth outside of the vaginal area. This will lower and eventually kill the core cells of the endometrium outside of the vaginal area. If this procedure is successful the woman health state will rapidly improve.
At present day there is no way to completely cure endometriosis. According to recent statement of American Society for Reproductive Medicine endometriosis should be assessed as chronic illness, requiring all life therapeutical plans having in mind maximum use of pharmacological means and limited repetition of surgical procedures.
The most common reasons for infertility:
·         Disturbances in menstrual cycles, with amenorrhea – when woman will stop menstruating in the time of her menstrual cycle
·         Syndrome of polycystic ovaries – excessed number of little follicles is produces in ovaries, that are not able to fully grow thanks to the hormonal misbalance
·         Hyperandrogenal syndrome – increased level of man hormone
·         Post pill amenorrhea – long time use of hormonal protection that can lead to the loss of menstruation
·         Women that are extremely thin or with excessive overweight or physical load (professional sportswomen)
Ovarian function failure
Ovarian failure is an ovarian function failure for women before their forties.
The lowered function of the ovaries tissue can be caused by the repeated ovarian operation (when removing cysts from ovaries endometriosis)
Morphologically conditioned infertility
This type of infertility is usually connected with the lowered throughput of the fallopian tubes. These are usually caused by gynecological inflammations (adnextidis), after repeated stomach operations and also for other than gynecological reasons (for example Crohn disease). Morphologically conditioned infertility can start from endometriosis.
Congenital infertility
Is usually caused by Turner´ syndrome, where the woman is missing one genital chromosome X, which causes that ovaries are not fully evolved and can´t fulfill their natural function.
Immunological infertility
Immune system of some women creates antibodies against the man´s sperm or against own ovaries. These antibodies are the main reason for infertility.
Drugs effect
Problems with conception can be also caused by some drugs. For example “The syndrome of uncracked follicle” where the egg is not released from the mature follicle. This might be caused by some painkillers (inhibitors of prostaglandin synthesis).

Name influence

Names were created for the reason to name call and individualize and distinct from the others. It used to be common that the individual was given a name once he was able to show his abilities and skills and his name was very close and related to him and his abilities.
These days the attitude is different the name is given usually right after birth and is decided some time before the birth. This name thus carries the wishes and presumptions to strengthen and support something with this name. It thus carries parent’s wishes and does not specify the one’s skills and abilities.
Name itself caries certain energy and potential. With the constant repetition of the same vowels and same sounds with the same vibrations when speaking out our name we get used to these sounds and we embrace it as our own. Repeated sound when saying our name or signing ourselves has a great influence on us. Selected name has also an influence on baby’s psychological and health state and so it is very important to select it carefully and patiently. It expresses its personal characteristics and uniqueness that accompanies him every day. It is also important to carefully combine the first name with the surname either our maiden name our new name after our partner. So with this decision we are partly creating ours children future and it very good to realize it, before we make a final call.
It is definitely not a great decision to pick the name by some movie star, politician or band player. As well as it is not recommended to keep the name between generations, of course there is an exception for this rule if we love the name and we are sure it is the one for our child.
It is usual that parents tend to give the name that is kept in the family for generations and later are sad that they weren’t strong enough and didn’t pick up differently because the baby is as angry and aggressive as it’s grandpa used to be and it doesn’t make sense that such a young baby is so aggressive.
Because we didn’t thought the name selection through and the child’s satisfaction with this selection we could cause all of this anger ourselves. Let’s wish to have happy and healthy children, to look forward to them. We want to give them the best. We begin with the effort to give him the right name, the call that it will carry for the rest of the life.
Mother that carries the child under its heart can intuitively feel what name would be appropriate or what name the child had picked up already.
Since the third month of pregnancy it is not just an embryo but it is a living creature with own destiny and universe past that demands to have the right name for its future related to its personality. Unique vibrations imprint’s child’s name into mother’s mind and it is important she will listen to the child and not to grandparents, friends or other outside influences in that matter.
The best is when the mother has a feeling that the baby picked up on its own and is satisfied with it. It is best to give the baby three names because person as a human being consists from three parts – body, soul and intellect. The first name connected to the body part should become commonly used main name.
It is very appropriate to look at each name complexity because every name has its colour, its resonance, characteristics and it is not recommended to give to a nervous and impatient child the name that would only support such personality.
And the baby will not like this name as it would support something it has already in a strong form and then will attach to its surname that would pass on him the ancestral issues.

Nomenology doesn’t distinct good or bad names but distincts “strong” and “weak” names where the strong name does not need to be appropriate and beneficial for its owner. Strong names are the names that have strong nomenological potential and energy. Weak names are names that doesn’t give or require much, they don’t carry any message but defines a certain fact. Strong name offers a lot but also requires from its owner quite a lot. It is a great task for him to carry such name and it is not everybody would keep up with such a task.  If the name doesn’t naturally resonates with its owner and the owner doesn’t have enough of the inside potential the balance is disturbed and the energy turns against it owner.
Sometimes the dissatisfaction with the name leads to the replacement with another one which is quite dangerous because the change of the name carries the beginning of another life. The previuous name stays in the past. Sometimes the decision to such step brings many benefits and makes a hope for a better life.
