Female Infertility

Author: Olivia Andrews

Female infertility is a growing problem. Infertility means the inability to conceive or produce offspring. The main cause of infertility is a reproductive system that impairs the ability of the body to perform necessary functions of reproduction.

Infertility affects nearly 5.3 million people in the United States. It is frequently treated with therapies such as medication or surgery which may or may not help depending on the couple being treated. There are two types of infertility:

1. Hypo fertile couples that are having difficulty conceiving. They may be having problems with timing and often they can conceive with the help of special treatment. Examples are men with low sperm counts and woman with endometriosis.

2. Sterile couples are unable to conceive without the help of medical or surgical treatment. For example, a man without enough sperm to fertilize the ova or a woman has blocked fallopian tubes.

Causes of female infertility

Factors that contribute to infertility are malfunctioning of the reproductive system or inability to release a healthy ovum in the fallopian tube. Other reasons such as endometriosis, infection or blocked tubes also lead to infertility. Another important factor is the inability of the sperm to enter the mucus that lines cervical canal leading to the uterus. Aging among woman also leads to infertility because they are more likely to conceive in their early twenties thereafter fertility
declines after the age of 35.

How can you improve your chances of conceiving?

There are some basic facts which could help you in increasing your chances of conception.

1. The best time for fertilization is ovulation that occurs in mid to late morning usually 12 to 16 days before the start of next menstrual cycles.

2. The best time to have intercourse is a day or evening before the ovulation takes place as such the sperm will be readily waiting in the fallopian tube when the ova or egg arrives.

3. The missionary position that is woman on her back and man on top usually is the best position for the uterus to receive sperm. But this case may vary in some situations so it
is better that you consult your personal doctor.

4. If you lie still for about 10 minutes after the intercourse so that the sperm that has entered the vagina has time enough to reach through the cervix.

5. Because of the fact that sperm can live in the fallopian tubes for 2 or 3 days it could be possible to have intercourse one day, ovulate next day and conceive on the third

6. To have intercourse thrice during a week of ovulation shall raise the odd that the sperm is present in the fallopian tubes when ovulation takes place.

7. Fertility could be effected once you stop taking oral contraceptive pills or injectable hormones but the effect shall wear off by time.
