Female Infertility

Female infertility can be described as a condition in which a woman is trying for pregnancy from last year but fails to achieve the same. This period can be six months in the case of females who are 35 years of age and above. Infertility in females occurs due to a range of factors such as age, environmental and lifestyle factors, hormonal problems along with other physical difficulties. Moreover, several other causes result in the occurrence of infertility in females.

In most of the cases, our infertility experts have found that infertility in females arise when there is a significant problem in the production of eggs. In addition to this, the potential damages to the fallopian tubes along with improper functioning of the uterus and cervix can also contribute towards infertility. The ovulation disorders primarily arise due to the multiple causes such as:

  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Being overweight
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Stress, drug, and alcohol use
  • Presence of a tumor or cyst in the ovaries

Furthermore, the functioning of the fallopian tubes can be affected due to the following reasons:

  • Inflammatory disease related to the pelvic region
  • Endometriosis
  • Long term illness
  • Any major infection in the fallopian tubes that have not been diagnosed
  • Problems in the uterus may lead to the problem of infertility. For ex.
    • Presence of polyps in the uterus
    • Fibroids and scar tissue

The infertility specialists emphasize on timely diagnosis of female infertility so that the best treatment can be provided to avoid the problem. A thorough physical examination along with the analysis of medical history can help in revealing the potential factors contributing to infertility. Moreover, minimally invasive surgery methods like laparoscopic surgery are preferred to have a complete examination of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Thus, it can help in the identification of major problems like damaged fallopian tubes, endometriosis, etc. Further, in extreme circumstances, infertility treatments like IVF can be recommended for better outcomes.
