Top 10 Causes of Infertility in Women

There are lots of causes of infertility in women. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, blocked or damaged fallopian tube are some of the causes of infertility in women. These female infertility problems can be treated with right intervention and management. Read on to know about the top 10 causes of infertility in women.


Infertility in women is due to many reasons. Though there are many causes of infertility in women, age factor is one of the most important one and matters a lot when considering her ability to conceive.

Infertility is a term used to describe a couple who has not been able to conceive a pregnancy and the period should be at least one year in which the couple has not made use of any kind of contraceptive. In some cases the term infertility is also used when a couple has been able to conceive at least once but after that they are unable.


Top 10 Causes of Infertility in Women (Female Infertility)

Causes behind infertility in women include both physical and emotional factors.

1.    Endometriosis

Endometriosis happens when tissues from the membrane that forms the lining of the uterus comes out of it. Since these tissues are out of the membrane they do not have way to shed the accumulated blood at the end of the menstrual cycle. This gets accumulated and causes inflammation and many associated problems.


Symptoms of Endometriosis


Here are some common symptoms of endometriosis.

  • Pain and cramps before and after periods

  • Fatigue

  • Diarrhea

  • Pain during intercourse

  • Nausea

  • Constipation


Diagnosis and Treatment

Endometriosis is diagnosed with the help of a laparoscope which is used to look into the pelvic cavity. The cysts are treated with the help of medication and in severe cases surgery is done. However, women who are near to menopause or do not want children anymore can also get their uterus removed.


2. Pituitary Tumors

Pituitary tumors are normally considered harmless and benign. This sometimes leads to destruction of hormone secreting cells present in the pituitary glands. This results in cessation in menstrual cycle in women and reduction in sperm counts in men. These tumors can also cause visual defects.

By measuring hormone levels in blood and urine, by visual field tests and from MRI or CT scans of brain pituitary tumors can be diagnosed. The treatment is done by either removing the tumor or by radiation or hormonal replacement therapy.


3. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Pelvic inflammatory disease occurs in the female reproductive organs and happens after miscarriage, abortion, childbirth or after sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea or Chlamydia infection.


Symptoms

  • Abdominal pain and tenderness

  • Vaginal discharge with unpleasant smell

  • Fever


Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosis is done during pelvic examination. Samples of discharge are also analyzed in some cases. The treatment is done by giving antibiotics. If infertility is due to this problem, in vitro fertilization popularly known as IVF is used. In some cases surgery is also done.


4.    Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

In polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), the egg is not released in uterus. Ovulation is either absent or inconsistent in this case. Many women have multiple cysts that are otherwise harmless.


Symptoms

  • Irregular ovulation

  • Insulin resistance

  • Excessive hair growth

  • Obesity
Blood tests and ultrasounds are done and treatment includes medication and in some cases cysts are either removed by surgery or laser rays.


5.    Stress - Stress is also responsible for infertility in women. Right diet, proper rest and exercise can help conceive.

6.    Obesity - Increased weight is a big problem today among both men and women and infertility has deep relations with obesity.


7.    Sexually Transmitted Diseases - Either during or after the treatment of any sexually transmitted disease, women find it difficult to conceive.


8.    Long Term Chronic Disease - Chronic diseases like diabetes can be one of the causes of infertility in women.


9.    Poor Egg Quality - In this case eggs get damaged or cannot sustain pregnancy. Poor egg quality is also one of the likely causes of infertility in women.


10.    Blocked or Damaged Fallopian Tube - Blocked or damaged fallopian tube can be one of the prime causes of infertility in women. Block or damaged fallopian tube does not allow easy congregate of ovum and sperm thereby causing infertility in women.

With early intervention, right treatment and management it is possible to overcome the problem of infertility in women. It is also necessary to have positive attitude to fight infertility problem in women.

Infertility in women can be due to various factors.Sometimes it can be altered by changing food habits or changing lifestyle habits like smoking, drinking etc. Stress is also one of the main factors which hampers fertility. If problems persists even after making changes in your lifestyle, better visit IVF clinics. I suggest visit Southend Fertility and IVF for world-class fertility treatment.
