ENDOMETRIOSIS, INFERTILITY, MISCARRIAGES, even prematurity and fetal malformations are pathologies that can be induced by the presence of nano-sized, non-biocompatible, non-biodegradable foreign bodies.

The diseases that affect the male and female genital tract are growing more and more common.

In several cases we came across male subjects who had their seminal fluid polluted by inorganic micro- and nanoparticles. Their presence causes the death of spermatozoa to a great extent and, when they survive, hinders their mobility. The condition results in a noticeable decrease in male fertility. It should be clarified that, by analyzing the seminal fluid and detecting the presence of particulate matter that hinders fertility in an unsurpassable way, it is possible to resort to assisted fertilization (IVF) after purifying the seminal fluid.

Females can also be affected by those undue presences. Unprotected sexual intercourses can, in fact, induce the so-called burning semen disease, a pathological condition that consists in the formation in the vaginal canal of very painful bleeding sores that can’t be cured either pharmacologically or by surgery. A further growing female disease is endometriosis, a condition in which the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus (endometrium) grows in parts of the body such as, among others, the intestine, the lungs and the thyroid. One of the side effects is the involvement of those tissues grown out of place at the time of menstruation.
