What the causes of female infertility?
- Female Infertility caused by Endometriosis
Endometriosis is the problem in which cells from the uterus lining travel to other parts of the pelvis. This can affect the ovaries and Fallopian tubes which can alter the egg movement and sperm. Even if it does not cause damage to these two it can affect the sperm movement, egg fertilization, growth of the embryo, and implantation.
- Female Infertility caused by Ovulation
The functioning of the menstrual cycle is dependent of several glands and because of hormones.
The ovulation occurs when part of the brain known as hypothalamus gives a signal to the pituitary gland to secrete hormones which help in triggering the ovaries to ripen the eggs. But, if the menstrual cycle is irregular or completely absent then it does indicate that ovulation is irregular.
Make sure you seek help if you feel something is not normal so that at the right time the doctor can give you the best infertility treatment.
- Female Infertility caused by PCOS
During ovulation, the ovaries produce small cysts which are known as follicles. One follicle is ripened and then the egg is released. But with Polycystic ovary syndrome, the follicles do not get riped and form little cysts at the lining of the ovaries as well as male sex hormone is released.
- Female infertility caused by cervix issue
Cervix is located around the vagina top or you can say at the uterus entrance. The sperm which is ejaculated which travel through the cervix so that it can reach the uterus and Fallopian tube.
During ovulation, the cervical mucus is thin and watery. This helps the sperm to swim through it very easily. But, if the cervical mucus is thick or quality is poor then sperm cannot travel.
- Female infertility caused by Fallopian tube
The egg gets fertilized by the sperm in the Fallopian tube. But if the Fallopian tube is blocked then it can affect the entire process as sperm cannot meet the egg.
