For many couples, the decision to have children is one that requires a lot of planning. While 86% couples are able to conceive in the very first year itself, for many people, infertility comes in the way of a successful conception.
A few of the problems that cause infertility include:
A women’s regular cycle occurs every 21 to 35 days. This constant occurrence of menstruation means that she is ovulating regularly. The ovulation of the egg occurs around 2 weeks before the beginning of the next period. The ovulation of the egg is extremely important for a pregnancy to happen. When a women doesn’t get her menstrual cycle after 35 days, it means that the egg is not being ovulated efficiently. This is why, if you feel you have irregular menstruation cycles, you must visit a maternity specialist.
For a few women who may have suffered from a particular infection or STD, pelvic inflammation or a few other diseases, their fallopian tubes have a chance of being blocked. When the fallopian tubes are blocked, an ovulated egg isn’t able to get properly fertilized by the sperm. At such times In Vitro Fertilization, commonly known as IVF is required. For some others, the fallopian tube may be filled with a liquid called hydrosalpinx, which can also cause problems in conception.
The uterine cavity is lined by various cells. Sometimes, cells very similar to the ones inside are found on the outside of the uterine cavity. Such an occurrence is called Endometriosis. Some symptoms of this condition include pain during intercourse or menstruation. This can also cause major complications during delivery and conception. In order to confirm if a woman has Endometriosis, a laproscopy procedure needs to be carried out. Through surgery, the unwanted cells can be removed and this can help a long way in conception.
Apart from this, there are many other problems that women face during conception such as Endometrial Polyps, Uterine Fibroids etc. In order to know the exact nature of a problem and the perfect therapeutic or surgical intervention it needs, visit our specialists at Jijai Hospital.
