Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS is a condition in which the ovaries produce androgens, a hormone, more than the normal limit. The high levels of this hormone mess with the ovaries' functioning and the release of eggs during the ovulation period.
Menopause usually begins in a woman who is 40+, however when the signs begin to show before 40 it is known as premature menopause. In such a case, periods stop completely and no eggs are produced, leading to the incapability of getting pregnant.
Benign tumors inside or outside the uterus can result in abnormal bleeding and infertility. Surgical removal of the fibroids depends on the size and placement of the fibroid. The successful removal of the fibroids could lead to a healthy pregnancy.
Damaged Fallopian Tube
A damaged fallopian tube is that which is partially blocked and or completely scarred. A hysterosalpingogram takes an X-ray of the uterus and tubes to find out if there is anything wrong with them, and then possible treatments are sought.
Primary Ovary Insufficiency (POI)
The body of a woman suffering from POI stops producing hormones and producing eggs at a relatively young age. POI patients do not ovulate regularly or sometimes they don't ovulate at all, and their hormone levels may also be unstable due to the same.
Sometimes, the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus enters other body organs like the abdomen, etc. When this happens, the woman experiences internal bleeding, pains and also infertility. Women who are suffering from the same are advised to visit an endocrinologist at the earliest.
Low Ovarian Reserve
Women suffering from this symptom have a reduced number of eggs than those that are usually produced, resulting in a fewer number of embryos. Also, there is the possibility that these eggs may also be of lower quality making it difficult to conceive.
Not every time there is something amiss with the woman. About half of the times it is the result of the male's infertility that hinders pregnancy. So when getting tests done to find out what is going wrong in your attempts at pregnancy, make sure the male in the couple gets appropriate tests done as well.
If you feel or even have the slightest doubt that you are suffering from any of these conditions that prevent pregnancy, get yourself and your partner tested at the earliest and seek appropriate treatments.
