WHAT’S THE LEADING CAUSE OF INFERTILITY
Blocked Fallopian tubes
Blocked Fallopian tubes are one possible cause of female infertility. There are usually no symptoms.
The Fallopian tubes are muscular tubes that are lined with delicate hair-like structures.
These structures, for a better description let’s call them hairs.
They work in two directions helping the egg of the female to go from the ovaries down to the uterus, and also helping the sperm of the male to travel up from the uterus.
The Fallopian tubes play an important role in conception because they are where most eggs are fertilized.
If any part of these Fallopian tubes is damaged, for example an infection, they can become blocked by scar tissue.
Blockage of a Fallopian tube doesn’t always present any type of symptom.
A blocked Fallopian tube may cause some women to experience symptoms such as pain in the pelvis or belly.
Fallopian tubes my become blocked due to a history of Pelvic infection, or having a sexually transmitted disease,
PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE
Pelvic inflammatory disease, is an infection of the organs of a women’s reproductive system.
You might not notice any symptoms of PID early on. But as the infection gets worse.
Some symptoms might be pain in your lower belly and pelvis, a heavy, unpleasant discharge from the vagina, severe pain during sexual intercourse and pain when you urinate.
Endometriosis is a medical condition that occurs when the lining of the uterus, grows in other places such as the Fallopian tubes or ovaries.
The cause of endometriosis is unknown. It’s may also be possible that problems with the immune system contribute to the development of endometriosis, but it is only a theory.
The most common symptom of endometriosis is cramping during menstruation.
Although a lot of women experience a certain level of pain during their monthly cycle, women with endometriosis may have pain that registers much more severe than during their cycle.
Some women with endometriosis experience pain just before the start of their period.
This painful experience continues throughout the course of their monthly cycle and even lasts after their period has ended.
Women with Endometriosis may also experience pain while having sex, fatigue, painful urination or bowel movements.
Some women don’t experience any symptoms at all, but realize they have the condition.
About a third to a half of women with endometriosis have difficulties getting pregnant. However, that doesn’t mean all women with endometriosis can’t get pregnant.
PROBLEMS WITH OVULATION
Ovulation problems are one of the most common causes of infertility.
If you do not have regular periods each month, you may be a candidate for problems with ovulation. Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovaries.
Ovulation problems can be caused by drug or alcohol abuse, bulimia or obesity.
WHAT IS A CERVIX The cervix is the lower part of your womb which extends into the top of the vagina.
The cervix allows blood to flow from the uterus during a woman s period and the males’ sperm to travel inside during sexual intercourse.
Infections are caused by germs such as bacteria and viruses and lead to inflammation of the cervix.
Infections of your cervix are usually caught through having sex.
The most common sexually transmitted infections which affect the cervix are, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and tampons.
HELP WITH INFERTILITY
There are medications that can absolutely help with infertility.
We’re not talking about sterility of which there is no treatment or cure.
Practicing safe sex is one of the things that can be done to increase becoming pregnant.
Sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea decreases the chances of a woman conceiving a child greatly.
We also must take into account the age of a woman that desires to be pregnant.
The older you are the less likely you are of becoming pregnant.
The older you are the number of eggs that a woman has decreases, health issues can cause issues.
