Having a second baby is not as easy as you think it is,specially for those couple who faces infertility.There can be lots of reason and due to that it times time to get the right treatment.
What are the causes of infertility?
Contrary to what is commonly believed, infertility is not principally a woman’s problem, and the causes of infertility in both men and women are highly complex. There are just as many cases of male infertility as there are of female infertility. However, due to the complexity of the reproductive process, there are many more causes of female infertility than there are causes of male infertility.
Women are responsible for:
- The production of the egg
- The migration of the egg in the Fallopian tubes
- The production of cervical mucus
- The proper implantation of the egg in the womb
- The development of the embryo (baby)
- Whether the egg is able to be penetrated by the sperm
Men are responsible for:
- The production of semen
- The deposition of the sperm
Couples require different types of treatment depending on the cause of infertility: for some couples, the treatment may be as simple as carefully monitoring their ovulation, while other couples might need to undergo infertility treatments such as clomid or procedures such as ovulation induction, IVF, ICSI, or IUI. You may have to take a number of fertility tests to determine the cause of infertility.
Causes of Infertility
Many factors can affect your fertility such as age, hormonal imbalance, stress and medical conditions.
Several causes can lead to irregular cycles, but most commonly it is due to hormonal imbalance. It is generally accepted that ovulation tests are not suitable for women with this condition as the tests are unreliable.
PCOS, or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Women with PCOS can have a wide range of symptoms attached to this condition, some will be able to conceive naturally without medical intervention whilst others will require medical intervention to help them conceive.
By definition, this refers to couples for which the medical community has not been able to identify the cause of infertility. This makes it particularly frustrating for the couples as they do not feel that there is much that they can do.
