What Is Female Infertility?
Around one-third of infertility cases are due to female infertility, and almost all of them respond well to fertility treatments.
Various factors can cause female infertility, which can be difficult to diagnose at times. In addition, the treatments available are specific. Therefore, it is essential to consult a fertility specialist in time and get yourself tested before starting treatment of any sort.
Causes of female infertility
- Age factor:
One of the most common causes of infertility in females is ageing. With increasing age, the quantity and quality of eggs start declining, increasing the risk of chromosomal abnormalities in embryos and miscarriages.
- Ovulation-related disorders:
Irregular menstrual cycles are often caused by an ovulation problem in a female. It is necessary to have normal ovulation to get pregnant. Imbalance in hormone levels and ovary problems can cause various ovulation disorders such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Premature Ovarian Failure, Hypothalamic Dysfunction, etc.
- Fallopian tubes problems:
Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes can also prevent pregnancy by stopping male sperm from reaching the egg or the fertilized zygote to reach the uterus for implantation.
Endometriosis is a disorder caused by abnormal tissue growth outside the internal lining of the uterus (endometrium). This lining or its surgical treatment can obstruct the fallopian tubes.
- Cervical problems:
Problems in the cervix interfere with the implantation process and increase the chances of miscarriage. These cervical problems are usually caused by tumors, inflammation, and congenital abnormalities.
- Unhealthy lifestyle:
Substance abuse such as alcohol, tobacco, or drug intake, along with unsafe sex, can also affect fertility. Obesity due to unhealthy eating practises can hamper ovulation and result in infertility.
Female infertility treatment in Mumbai depends on specific factors such as the age of the female, cause of infertility, and personal preference of the person. In a few cases, a combination of various treatments might be necessary. Some of the options are as follows-
- Ovarian stimulation:
Certain medicines and hormone therapy can help stimulate ovulation. Ovarian stimulation is one of the most effective fertility treatments in Mumbai for ovulation disorders and is commonly used as a part of assisted reproductive procedures.
- Surgical treatment:
Certain surgical processes like laparoscopy and hysteroscopy can treat various uterine and fallopian tube problems.
- Assisted Reproductive Technology:
ART processes treat a wide range of infertilities. IUI and IVF are the most prevalent ART methods.
*In IUI sperm is inserted directly inside the patient’s uterus, which helps healthy sperm get closer to the egg.
*During In-Vetro fertilization (IVF), mature eggs are extracted from ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a laboratory procedure. Then the embryo is transferred to the same uterus.
