What Can Cause Infertility in Women

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
What Can Cause Infertility in Women

Female infertility affects nearly 40 million women world over, as per medical studies. If the female patient is not able to conceive after trying for a period of over six months without the use of any protection or contraception, there are chances that she may be suffering from infertility. This condition must be checked and treated at the earliest. Read on to know more about the various causes behind female infertility.

  1. Fallopian Tubes: When the fallopian tubes undergo any kind of damage, it may lead to infertility for the woman in question. These tubes are used by the eggs as they travel from the ovaries to the uterus. The eggs meet the sperm in order for the baby to be conceived and to develop. Pelvic infections and pelvic surgery can cause scarring and bleeding which can stop the sperm and the egg from meeting. This scarring may also come about as a result of endometriosis.
  2. Hormonal Issues: There are a variety of hormones at play within one's body at any given point of time, and a balance of these hormones is absolutely essential for the various functions of the body to be carried out in a normal manner. When the body does not go through proper hormonal changes that are required for the release of the egg, this can prevent the pregnancy from happening. This can also lead to a thickening of the uterine lining which can stop the egg from travelling from the ovaries.
  3. Cervical Problems: The cervix is one of the most important parts of the female reproductive system. It is a passage that can be found at the lower end of the womb. When there is a condition that may affect the cervix of the female patient, it can also prevent the sperm from travelling through the cervical canal in order to reach the egg. This comes about as a symptom of a cervical problem.
  4. Uterine Problem: One may develop polyps or fibroids within the uterus, thus giving rise to difficulties when it comes to getting pregnant. These growths can usually be found when there are too many cells thriving in the endometrium, which is basically the lining of the uterus.
  5. Unexplained Reasons: There are a number of 'unexplained' reasons that can prevent pregnancy. These reasons plague almost 20% of the couples who are suffering from infertility or the inability to conceive a baby.
  6. Tests: While the diagnosis of the condition can be done with the help of an HSG test using an ultrasound, the doctor can also use this method to check for fallopian tube blockages. A laparoscopy may also be used for diagnosis.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Hi, it depends as to how well controlled it is. If on insulin and fluctuating sugar levels then it requires frequent monitoring otherwise once a month should be okay if controlled.

It takes around 6 to 8 weeks to reflect change in value of TSH. You can repeat test after 2 months of starting treatment. I think its already more than 2 months so you can go for test now.

How to control sugar, and how manage to the health condition I am already eat tablet daily GM.

How to control sugar, and how manage to the health condition I am already eat tablet daily GM.
Living with diabetes is a challenge that more people in the United States are facing every day. Over 8 percent of Americans now have diabetes — that’s about 26 million people in all, although about 7 million aren’t even aware that they have it. Beyond managing the condition itself, it’s crucial to get diabetes under control because of the risk for serious complications — from kidney failure and nerve damage to heart disease and stroke. On the positive side, you can manage diabetes by following just a few simple healthy-living strategies: Monitoring your blood sugar, taking any prescribed medications, eating a smart diabetes diet, and exercising regularly — every day. Monitoring Your Blood Sugar To effectively manage diabetes, it’s crucial to monitor your blood sugar. “It’s like a light in a dark tunnel: You need to see where you’re going,” says Betul Hatipoglu, MD, an endocrinologist at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. “If you take insulin, it’s important to check your blood sugar before each injection to be safe, or once a day if you don’t take insulin.” If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and use insulin, it’s also important to check your blood sugar before exercising or bedtime, and before driving a car to make sure you don’t have low blood sugar. If you're on medication and checking your blood sugar once a day, it might be best to vary what time you check it, sampling at different times of the day, such as before meals or two hours after meals, Dr. Hatipoglu advises. Research has shown that when you monitor your blood sugar closely, it improves your ability to manage diabetes. In a study of almost 300 people published in the journal Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, people with diabetes who regularly monitored their blood sugar had a significantly better quality of life than those with low blood sugar. Handling the Diabetes Diet When people are told they need to change their diet to manage diabetes, they may become overwhelmed by the challenge and revert to old habits. But a diabetes diet isn’t all that different from how everybody should be eat on a daily basis, says Elizabeth Snyder, RD, LD, a registered dietitian with the Ohio State University Diabetes Research Center in Columbus. Snyder suggests people with diabetes start with a good breakfast each day to avoid crashes and overeating later on. She also recommends getting plenty of fiber from whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and choosing lean protein sources and low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Steer clear of sugary, sweetened beverages in favor of unsweetened tea and water, and have a few small, healthy snacks throughout the day to avoid the drops and spikes in blood sugar that can occur between meals. Sticking to Your Medication Plan If your doctor prescribes medication, sticking to the scheduling is vital. The routine will be different depending on whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and if you need to take insulin or other drugs, too. Regardless of what type of medication you take, Hatipoglu has a few suggestions to make it easier. “Use a daily pill box if you tend to forget to take your medication, and place it in the kitchen or in the bathroom near your toothbrush to help prevent missing a dose,” she says. “If you take insulin, a journal with food intake and blood sugar information can be priceless when it comes to treatment-plan troubleshooting in your doctor’s office.” Managing Diabetes With Exercise Regular exercise is a key component when it comes to your overall health and living well with diabetes. However, getting started with an exercise program can call for a little more effort if you need to monitor blood sugar before and after exercise. For this reason, Hatipoglu suggests starting with a simple, easily achievable exercise routine. “Walking is usually the best as it’s fun, can be done indoors or outdoors, and only requires a good pair of shoes, she says. Swimming, cycling, dancing, and running are other good aerobic op.

My husband is suffering from hypothyroid. I want a diet menu chart with timings to follow.
There is no special diet required for hypothyroidism patient. What is needed is following: 1) avoid soy beans, soy containing products, 2) avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee, 3) should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits, 4) use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. 5) avoid high fat cheese and can consume low fat milk products. Over caloric intake should match the need based on ideal body weight and daily physical exercise. For exact food to be consumed in terms various items and at different times it would be better if you come in a private conversation.

We have specialized tablets to control hair fall. These tablets clear blocks at the root of hair follicles thereby giving them proper protein and nutrition and hence hair becomes thick and strong and follicles that are devoid of hair acquire nutrition and grow hairs in them. At the same time, medicine retards destruction of estrogen, thereby reducing hair fall. Above all else, medicine strengthen liver so that absorption of calcium and phosphorus from food increases. This is how it is complete hair care system. Regards

I had recently tested my thyroid profile. The results for TSH 3RD GENERATION was found to be 4.640 nIU/ml which is outside the safe range of 0.27-4.20. The T3 and T4 results are within the range. How risky is it for me?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Tsh outside the range indicates hypothyroidism. But its not very advanced hypothyroidism because the tsh is still within 10 and since t3/t4 are within normal range - your hypothyroidism is subclinical - which means that you are still safe. However to decide whether you should be started or not - on thyroid medications- it is recommended that you undergo anti tpo antibody test - if it comes out to be high then you have to definitely take medicine.

Dear lybrate-user, diabetes has affected nerves of legs of your mother. It is called diabetic neuropathy. We need to control sugar very tightly and give her medicines to treat neuropathy. Balanced and healthy diet will help control sugar but can't treat neuropathy.

Keeping your diabetic condition, fatty liver grade 3, you need to follow a 1700kcal moderate carbohydrate, moderate protein, high fibre, high antioxidant, high omega 3 fatty acid rich diet plan, you can schedule your meal timings from your wake up time, but make sure you are maintaining 2-3 hour intervals and consuming the mentioned foods and portions at the appropriate meals. Do follow it to the maximum for best results. Make flaxseed, drumstick leaves, curry leaves powder and sprinkle 30 gm daily on all the foods you consume throughout the day. Consume lot of leeks and lettuce smoothie which is high in fibre content. Also you can consume raw lady's finger water soaked overnight for your diabetes condition. Substitute multigrains in the place single cereal or millet like rice or wheat or ragi to increase the fibre content in your diet for your fatty liver.
