Fertility challenges for Women
Gynecological disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), endometriosis, and uterine fibroids Problems with anatomy of the reproductive organs
Causes of female infertility are grouped into.
Problems with fertility may arise if a woman’s fallopian tubes have been damaged by pelvic infection, previous tubal pregnancy, or ruptured appendix. Most women with tubal problems benefit from in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Most women ovulate every 21 to 35 days. Women with cycles greater than 35 days are considered to have oligo-ovulation. Those who do not ovulate at all have anovulation. Medical therapy is often successful in these cases.
Advanced age is now the leading cause of infertility in the United States. For women, age-related infertility results from a decrease in the number and quality of her eggs over time.
Endometriosis is a condition where normal uterine tissue grows outside the uterus. Laparoscopy, a minor outpatient surgical procedure, is the most common treatment for endometriosis.
Abnormalities of the cervix affect fertility. One of the most common causes is prior surgery on the cervix, such as a cone biopsy, or laser therapy to treat cervical cancer. Treatment includes intrauterine insemination and IVF.
Abnormalities to the shape of the uterus can also impact fertility. Some of these include scar tissue, polyps, or fibroids. Hysteroscopy or a laparoscopy can be used to treat many uterine abnormalities.
The Hormone imbalance that affects the ovulation. Insulin resistance, obesity, abnormal hair growth on the face or body.
You may not be getting pregnant because your body isn’t going through the natural hormonal changes that lead to the release of an egg from the ovary and the thickening of the lining of the uterus.
Stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. These two hormones produced by the pituitary gland and also responsible for stimulating ovulation each month. Excess physical or emotional stress, a very high or very low body weight, or a recent substantial weight gain or loss can disrupt production of these hormones and affect ovulation.
That means the doctors cannot find a reason why pregnancy is not occurring.
