INFERTILITY

Infertility is defined as inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse infertile.

Causes of infertility -There are male , female and unknown factors of infertility.  

 

Female Factors  

Ovulation Disorders - there are certain conditions in which the hormones which regulate ovulation get disturbed, leading to anovulation, irregular ovulation (no or irregular egg formation respectively), hence leading to infertility.

PCOS- the most common condition nowadays, in which the females can present with clinical features like disturbed periods  (generally delayed periods), facial hair known as hirsutism, acne (pimples) on the face. In PCOS, the male and female hormones present inside the female body go out of proportion due to which ovulation gets affected many a time, thus resulting in infertility or subfertility.  

 

Tubal Factors - Fallopian tubes can undergo blockage due to numerous reasons like Chronic infection (bacterial/genital tuberculosis) Known as chronic PID.  By previous surgeries of the abdomen might have resulted in adhesions around the tubes. Endometriosis

 

Endometriosis - This is a condition in which there are endometrial tissue deposits outside the uterus, which may result in inappropriate functioning of ovaries and fallopian tubes and improper hormonal milieu inside the uterine cavity deterring conception.  

 

Uterine Problems - malformations or abnormalities in the uterus such as fibroids, polyps, septate uterus, genital TB are some of the known causes of infertility.  

 

Hormonal Factors- these include thyroid hormone, prolactin hormone, pituitary gland, and hypothalamic hormones, all of which are important to regulate ovulation and uterine function.
