The number of cases of confirmed infertility in USA is increasing every year. The statistics are relentless: more than 75% are accounted for by female reproductive problems. Even young couples planning a pregnancy have difficulties – fertilization does not occur for several cycles, the embryo does not attach to the uterus, or an ectopic pregnancy occurs.
To understand the causes of infertility, read this article. And remember, the diagnosis of infertility should be clinically confirmed! Maybe you just do not have enough knowledge and recommendations from specialists for the successful conception and bearing of a baby.
The fast pace of life, many stressful situations and not the best ecology in Ukraine are the main reasons for changes in the body and the sperm activity decrease. Of course, it is difficult to protect yourself from unfavourable factors. And sometimes, they become the reason that the male reproductive cells do not reach or cannot fertilize the egg.
The diagnosis is confirmed by a complex of clinical studies. The list of diagnostic procedures includes various blood and semen tests. They are as follows:
Reproductive medicine specialists may also order other tests on an individual basis. Their results should be assessed in the general clinical picture – this is the only way to confirm the diagnosis of infertility.
Among the main reasons are hormonal disorders and sperm problems. You should also pay attention to possible anatomical changes, genetic predisposition and age.
So, the ability to fertilize depends on the number, motility and even the shape of the sperm. If there are less than 15 million active germ cells in 1 ml of sperm, the amount is considered insufficient.
Low-active sperm cells reduce the chances of pregnancy. For successful fertilization, they must constantly move forward. But the movement and the possibility of penetration into the egg depends on the shape and size. Any deviations can cause a couple to fail to conceive a child.
In addition, sometimes, the cause of male infertility is an abnormality in the sperm DNA chain. Genetic information is not transmitted correctly – hence the problems with conception and even the health of the child.
With age, reproductive function decreases. Injuries, infections and surgeries can cause malfunctioning of the genitals. And hereditary factors affect the production of sperm – its quantity and quality.
For many women, motherhood is the highest destiny and the most desirable gift. But not every organism, alas, is ready to conceive and bear a child.
Such women can enjoy motherhood by applying for the services of a surrogate mother. In Kyiv, you can become a member of the KINDERLY program, which guarantees security and confidentiality at all stages of cooperation!
The diagnosis of infertility is made only if during the year a woman has a regular sex life and does not use any means of protection – but pregnancy does not occur.
Problematic skin, discomfort and pain in the pelvic area, irregular menstruation may indicate “female” diseases. If it is impossible to get pregnant for a long time, they turn to geneticists to undergo genetic tests. Conception is influenced by the psychological state, history of illness and lifestyle.
The most common causes of infertility in women are:
To determine the causes and confirm the diagnosis, you should contact reproductive specialists. Only a complex of laboratory, ultrasound and computer tests will show the truthful picture of a woman’s health.
Polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS occurs in 10% of modern women. In Kyiv, gynaecologists successfully treat this disorder and restore ovulation.
The symptoms of PCOS is irregular menstruation, excessive male body hair growth, increased levels of male hormones, and insulin resistance. Weight gain and other lipid disorders can sometimes be its symptoms.
The easiest way to normalize fertility is to tune the body to healthy work. If the cause of infertility is a lifestyle, it is enough to remove negative factors: alcohol, smoking, stress. And the long-awaited pregnancy will come.
You should also pay attention to climate and ecology. If necessary, adjust the weight – if it is significantly higher or lower than the standard.
In other cases, treatment depends on the causes of infertility and is prescribed individually.
Sometimes infertility treatment does not give positive dynamics. In this case, the best solution would be to find germ cell donors.
In Kyiv, the KINDERLY program is being carried out – it combines the services of a reproductive medicine clinic and related support at all stages. Only those women who, according to the results of consultations and research, meet the requirements, can become egg donors.
