Common Cause of Infertility in Females

Common Cause of Infertility in Females

Common Cause of Infertility in Females

For pregnancy to occur, every part of the complex human reproduction process has to take place just right. The steps in this process are as follows:

  • One of the two ovaries releases a mature egg.
  • The egg is picked up by the fallopian tube.
  • Sperm swim up the cervix, through the uterus and into the fallopian tube to reach the egg for fertilization.
  • The fertilized egg travels down the fallopian tube to the uterus.
  • The fertilized egg implants and grows in the uterus.

In women, a number of factors can disrupt this process at any step. Female infertility is caused by one or more of these factors.

Ovulation disorders

Ovulation disorders, meaning you ovulate infrequently or not at all, account for infertility in about 25 percent of infertile couples. These can be caused by flaws in the regulation of reproductive hormones by the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland, or by problems in the ovary itself.

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).In PCOS, complex changes occur in the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and ovaries, resulting in a hormone imbalance, which affects ovulation. PCOS is associated with insulin resistance and obesity, abnormal hair growth on the face or body, and acne. It’s the most common cause of female infertility.
  • Hypothalamic dysfunction.The two hormones responsible for stimulating ovulation each month — follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) — are produced by the pituitary gland in a specific pattern during the menstrual cycle. Excess physical or emotional stress, a very high or very low body weight, or a recent substantial weight gain or loss can disrupt this pattern and affect ovulation. The main sign of this problem is irregular or absent periods.
  • Premature ovarian insufficiency.This disorder is usually caused by an autoimmune response where your body mistakenly attacks ovarian tissues or by premature loss of eggs from your ovary due to genetic problems or environmental insults such as chemotherapy. It results in the loss of the ability to produce eggs by the ovary, as well as a decreased estrogen production under the age of 40.
  • Too much prolactin.Less commonly, the pituitary gland can cause excess production of prolactin (hyperprolactinemia), which reduces estrogen production and may cause infertility. Most commonly this is due to a problem in the pituitary gland, but it can also be related to medications you’re taking for another disease.

          If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.

Lybrate-use, Thanks for the query. Madam I need to know what is the problem related to thyroid gland. Whether it is hypothyroidism (Under active gland) or hyperthyroidism (over active gland). Also values of T3, T4 and TSH, plus if you have tested Anti TPO antibodies. After looking all those details only I will be able to give an opinion. Please also inform your correct height and weight plus the dosage of medication being taken. Thanks.

Nothing shoud and shouldn't be done excessive in sugar because balance is law of nature. Reason for high sugar are many like junk food and fried food, fruit juices intake and lack of exercise. There are many environmental factors which influnce diabetes like too hot or too cold,acute stress mental or physical like boil,fracture or any accident,heart attack. Even travelling and change of place or country affects the levels too much.

A common treatment is to replace thyroxine with a specific synthetic thyroid hormone (levothyroxine). This hormone is safe and affordable, but determining the right dosage often takes time. Your metabolic rate has to be returned to normal. Raising it too quickly can cause palpitations and make some medical problems like coronary artery disease and atrial fibrillation worse. Symptoms of thyroid hormone excess are: shakiness or tremors palpitations insomnia increased appetite diets rich in soy and high fiber can interfere with levothyroxine absorption. Medications and supplements also can reduce absorption. These include: calcium supplements iron supplements cholestyramine aluminum hydroxide (present in some antacids)

Your blood sugar levels r normal. No need to worry but sgpt is increased means that yr liver is not properly functioning. So 1. Avoid overeating 2. Avoid excessive milk products like cheese, butter and ghee 3. Avoid fast food, spicy and fried food 4. Avoid alcohol if you you're taking 5. Avoid non veg 6. Take nutritious homemade diet.

Hello, thanks for the query. To find out if one has diabetes or problems in blood glucose, best is to Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). Next is to do a fasting and PP glucose test. Random is not of much advantage. Thanks.

It totally depends first on your biochemical values of thyroid function and secondly on your complaints which are present then, have they cured or not. You should ideally consult your clinician who advised you those medications.

Aloe Vera juice is very effective to stop hair loss. Pure aloe gel can be applied directly to the scalp. This is helpful for preventing hair loss due to irritated, dry or infected scalp. Aloe Vera balances the pH level of scalp. After massaging the head with aloe gel, wait for few hours and then wash the hair with lukewarm water. You should do this twice a week for best results.
