Female infertility refers to the inability of a woman to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term. There are many possible causes of female infertility, including:
Ovulation disorders: Problems with ovulation are one of the most common causes of female infertility. Ovulation disorders can be caused by hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), premature ovarian failure, or other underlying medical conditions.
Fallopian tube damage or blockage: Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes can prevent the sperm from reaching the egg, or prevent the fertilized egg from reaching the uterus for implantation. Fallopian tube damage can be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), endometriosis, or previous surgeries.
Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus, causing pain, scarring, and infertility.
Uterine or cervical abnormalities: Abnormalities in the uterus or cervix can make it difficult for a fertilized egg to implant or for sperm to reach the egg. These abnormalities can be caused by uterine fibroids, polyps, or structural defects.
Age: As women age, their fertility naturally declines. This is due to a decrease in the number and quality of eggs in the ovaries.
Lifestyle factors: Lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and stress can also contribute to female infertility.
Reproductive tract infections: Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause scarring or damage to the fallopian tubes, leading to infertility.
Diagnosis of female infertility may involve a medical history review, physical exam, blood tests, ultrasound, or other diagnostic procedures. Treatment options for female infertility may include medications to stimulate ovulation, surgery to correct structural abnormalities, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), or other assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs).
Aashakiran IVF is a type of assisted reproductive technology that uses a combination of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI). It can be used to treat various causes of infertility in women, including ovulation disorders, endometriosis, and unexplained infertility. Aashakiran IVF involves collecting eggs from the ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the uterus in a procedure similar to IUI. This type of treatment can significantly increase the chances of pregnancy for couples struggling with infertility.
