Reasons Behind Infertility in Women!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Agra
Reasons Behind Infertility in Women!

The inability to conceive after indulging in unprotected sex is known as infertility. It can also be referred to the biological incapability of a male to cause the conception or a woman being unable to carry the pregnancy for full-term. Research has shown that female problems contribute to over half of all the infertility cases while a majority of the other causes include sperm disorders.

Treatment of infertility depends on:

  1. Cause of Infertility
  2. Duration of Infertility
  3. Age of both partners
  4. Personal preferences

Causes:
Causes of infertility in women include:
1. Ovulation disorders: This is regarded as the most common cause of infertility in women. The disorders can be caused due to the following

2. Problems in fallopian tubes or uterus: Abnormalities in the uterus or fallopian tubes render the woman incapable of conceiving naturally. This might be due to:

3. Medications: There is a possibility that treatment will cure infertility. Examples include NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy. Treatment of infertility might involve a significant amount of psychological, physical, temporal and financial commitments. In men, treatment is done to treat lack of healthy sperm or general sexual problems. The treatments include:

  1. Medications
  2. Surgery
  3. Change in lifestyle
  4. Sperm retrieval

Even though it is possible to restore fertility in women using only one or two therapies, a number of treatments might be required before conception is possible. Some of these treatments include:

  1. Intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  2. Stimulation of ovulation with fertility drugs
  3. Surgery to restore fertility

In situations where pregnancy does not happen spontaneously, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) can be used by couples to achieve pregnancy. It is a form of fertility treatment which involves the handling of sperm and egg. The entire ART team consists of psychologists, physicians, embryologists, nurses and lab technicians.

One common ART technique is In vitro fertilization (IVF). It is a process where an egg and sperms are manually combined in a laboratory dish, followed by transfer of embryo to the uterus. Some aspects involved in an IVF cycle are:

  1. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
  2. Assisted hatching
  3. Donor eggs or sperm
  4. Gestational carrier

Some complications that may occur during the treatment of infertility are:

  1. Multiple pregnancy
  2. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

It can complicate the pregnancy to some extent. But not much if it kept under control. Please consult a proper homeopathic doctor for this. I would suggest you to go for at least one consultation. Either with me or some other doctor whom you trust. That will be better for you. Still if you have any queries, please feel free to ask me. Take care :)

With TSH 10 you are having Hypothyoidism, means your thyroid gland is secreting less hormone than required causing metabolism of body to slowdown causing few symptoms which you may tolerate. Other things as you have asked are unpredictable.

Press your finger on the shin of your leg on the swelling for about 15 seconds. If there is a pit formation after you lift your finger, it is pitting oedema due to fluid collection. As you have already got your kft, lft done and these are normal, your salt intake may be more which may need restriction. Further if your serum proteins and hemoglobin levels are not checked, do it as hypopriteinaemia and anaemia are also a cause of body swelling. You may also need to check your cortisol levelif needed.

Hi Your weight seems to be more. You will have to lose atleast 8 to 10 percent of your weight to control your thyroid problems. Also your HbA1C report says your a non diabetic (if your not a diabetic and not on medicines) but a Fasting blood sugar of 111 says you have impaired glucose tolerance and you have a risk of becoming a diabetic in the future. Follow a low calorie diet and lose weight. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is well controlled then efforts to reduce weight will be successful. For adequate control of hypothyroidism tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 mili units/l. So please check the levels and inform. Only workout is not going to help, there has to be a properly planned diet, that provides calories based on your ideal body weight and workouts. Should avoid high fatty foods, junk foods, sweetened aerated drinks and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Workout has to be intense, preferably under guidance. Taks for the question.

I am a diabetic since last 2 years. I am too fat. I tried ayurvedic medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
You are not clear in your question whether you want help for diabetes or obesity. For diabetes, you may get your fasting blood glucose and hba1c checked and consult a physician nearby. There are many anti-diabetic medications available in the market and choice of drug varies from person to person. For obesity, yo need to make lifestyle changes first. Quit alchohol and smoking, eat lots of fibers, avoid eating fatty food, exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, you may also go for bariatric suregry to help reduce weight. Visit your nearest bariatric surgeon for more details of the procedure.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to keep diabetes in check first and foremost is to take appropriate drugs as prescribed by your doctor. Secondly regular daily exercise of more than 1 hour is essential. Plus restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Avoid eating sweets, direct sugar or gur, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Refrain from alcohol and smoking.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have diabetes t2 and probably hemrrhoids (piles). If piles are trouble some, then surgical treatment is the only option. More importantly your diabetes needs to be treated with appropriate medication either oral anti diabetes drugs or insulin injection. With a pp level of 200 mg it not good to leave it untreated. This my sicere advise to you.
