Common Health Issues Which Causes Infertility in Women

Common Health Issues Which Causes Infertility in Women

Many infertile couples want to conceive a baby but don’t know how to complete this dream because they are not aware of common health issues that cause infertility. Infertility can be caused due to common health issues in you or your partner. Let’s understand what are the 7 common health issues that cause infertility in women. 

  1. Uterine Fibroids 

Uterine fibroids form within the wall or inside the uterus. These fibroids are noncancerous but interfere with the implantation of the embryo. There are different types of uterine fibroids and they are divided based on their location within the uterus wall. Subserosal fibroids, Submucosal fibroids, and Intramural fibroids are the types of uterine fibroids. These fibroids not only impact the implantation of the embryo but also decrease the chances of successful pregnancy. 

  1. Fallopian Tube Blockages 

The most common issue faced by women swelling in the fallopian tube or a blocked fallopian tube can create issues while you are trying to conceive. During this condition, sperm cannot fertilize the egg that is present in the fallopian tube due to blockage or damage. It is necessary to consider the right infertility specialist to increase your chances of a successful pregnancy.  You can consult highly experienced infertility specialists at the Infertility Female Center in Lucknow for a personalized treatment plan. 

  1. Ovulation Issues 

Ovulation disorders can also be a reason behind your infertility. If you are facing irregular periods, overweight, thyroid disorder, or heavy periods then you might be facing ovulatory issues. Ovulatory disorders can also be related to polycystic ovary syndrome or polycystic ovary disease. These issues are considered the major cause of infertility in women. The symptoms of this issue can be decreased with the right lifestyle, medications, and consulting your doctor. 

  1. Endometriosis 

During endometriosis, tissues that are similar to the inner lining of the uterus grow outside the uterus and it could be the pelvis. It also causes inflammation, pain, and discomfort. This endometrial tissue bleeds the same way as menstruation. This also increases the chances of complexities during your pregnancy. Endometriosis may lead to infertility but infertile couples can also conceive a healthy baby with IVF technique. With the help of successful IVF treatment in Lucknow, you can increase your chances of a healthier pregnancy. 

  1. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease 

PID(Pelvic Inflammatory disease) is an infection that can cause scarring in the fallopian tubes and it reduces the chances of fertilization. This infection can affect your reproductive organs such as the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Symptoms of this disease are severe pain in your abdomen,  fever, vomiting, pain during sex, unusual bleeding from the vagina, frequent urination, or others.  Some women might not face any of these symptoms but may face this issue.

  1. Autoimmune Disorders 

Autoimmune disorders lead to infertility because they can make the immune system attack and damage your body organs and that could be your embryo. Common autoimmune diseases are rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, and others. 

Autoimmune disorders lead to difficulty in getting pregnant and it is necessary to consult with your doctor to increase your chances of successful pregnancy. 

  1. Abnormalities in Your Uterus 

Another reason for infertility is abnormalities in the uterus. Uterine polyps, abnormal shape of the uterus, and tumors in the wall of the uterus can also cause infertility. Structural problems in the uterus can lead to implantation problems. Arcuate uterus, uterus didelphys, bicornuate uterus, unicornuate uterus, and absent uterus may also create complications in your pregnancy. Most women don’t know that they have an abnormally shaped uterus as there are very few symptoms of this condition. But through an ultrasound scan, this condition can be analyzed and according to it, treatment can be done.

Unexplained infertility is also a reason behind female infertility. Such causes are not identified through normal tests and procedures. Sometimes minor factors are also responsible for your infertility. For the right treatment, it is necessary to get an early diagnosis. Make sure that you take proper medications and consult with your infertility specialist for early treatment and successful pregnancy.
