Infertility is the inability to conceive even after trying for a year. This also includes women who get pregnant but fail to stay pregnant.
Pregnancy includes several steps; and to get pregnant, a woman should successfully complete ovulation, fertilization, and implantation stages. Infertility may happen due to the rise of problems in any of these stages.
No, infertility doesn’t necessarily mean to be a woman’s problem. Around 30% of infertility cases are associated with malefactors. Another 30% of cases are for women. Again, 30% of cases happen due to problems in both partners. However, the reasons for the remaining cases are unexplainable.
The advanced age can appear to be a growing cause of infertility as the quality and quantity of the eggs decreases.
- The ovaries may become less capable of releasing eggs
- Low egg count
- Poor quality of eggs
- Suffers from other health conditions
Hence, around one-third of the couples where women are above 35 years old may have fertility complications.
The quality and quantity of sperm are equally important as women’s eggs to have a child. However, some factors that may lower the health or quantity of the sperm include:
- Heavy alcohol consumption
- Drugs use
- Cigarette smoking
- Environmental toxins
- Health conditions such as hormonal imbalance, mumps, kidney disease
- Exposure to radiation and chemotherapy
- Prior surgeries like vasectomy, prostate surgery, or testicular surgery
Symptoms of women infertility may depend on the change in the menstruation cycle and the stage of ovulation, such as:
- Abnormal periods
- Painful periods
- Reduced sexual desire
- Growth of dark hair on chest, chin, and lips
- Weight gain
- Hair thinning or hair loss
- Pain during sexual intercourse
If the complication is curable with medication, the doctor prescribes medicines and checks the health of the female patient. However, if the problem is severe, the doctor takes the help of special techniques to treat female infertility.
There are multiple techniques available to treat female infertility. This includes laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, intrauterine insemination, In vitro fertilization (IVF). Otherwise, the doctor treats female infertility with surrogacy if other techniques are unable to do the job.
Several women have blocked fallopian tubes, while men have low sperm counts. In vitro fertilization is a treatment to increase the chance of becoming pregnant. When you have lost the hope of having a biologically related child, IVF is the solution.
Like other medical treatments, IVF needs the assistance of highly trained professionals, well-equipped laboratories, and tools. You may need to repeat the IVF cycle. We have different packages for you.
