Female infertility is the inability to get pregnant after a year of unprotected intercourse. Women are born with a finite number of eggs. Thus, as the reproductive years progress, the number and quality of the eggs diminish. The chances of having a baby decrease by 3% to 5% per year after the age of 30. This reduction in fertility. Female infertility can be also be caused by a number of factors, including the following: Damage to the fallopian tubes, Some women have problems with ovulation, a small group of women may have a cervical condition in which the sperm cannot pass through the cervical canal.
The main symptom of infertility is the inability of a couple to get pregnant. There may be no other outward signs or symptoms.
Fertility tests may include:Ovulation testing, hysterosalpingography where X-ray contrast is injected into your uterus and an X-ray is taken to determine if the uterine cavity is normal and whether the fluid passes out of the uterus and spills out of your fallopian tubes. If abnormalities are found, one needs further evaluation,Ovarian reserve testing etc. Because infertility is a complex disorder, treatment involves significant financial, physical, psychological and time commitments. Although some women need just one or two therapies to restore fertility, it's possible that several different types of treatment may be needed before you're able to conceive. Treatments can either attempt to restore fertility by means of medication or surgery or assist in reproduction with sophisticated techniques.
