What is Infertility?
Infertility affects many couples around the world. It is the inability to conceive after one year of trying for couples under the age of 35 or after six months for couples over the age of 35. Several factors can cause infertility, including hormonal imbalances, anatomical abnormalities, and lifestyle factors. We will examine some infertility causes, its emotional impact, and assisted reproduction treatment options available.
Causes of Infertility
– Hormonal imbalances: Disorders that affect the hormones that regulate reproduction can cause infertility. These disorders include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and thyroid disorders.
– Anatomical abnormalities: Structural problems with the reproductive system can cause infertility. These problems include blocked fallopian tubes, uterine fibroids, and endometriosis.
– Lifestyle factors: Habits such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and being overweight or underweight affect fertility.
– Age: Women’s fertility decreases as they age because the number and quality of eggs in the ovaries decline.
Emotional effect of Infertility
Infertility can be an emotionally charged experience for couples causing feelings of sadness, frustration, even depression. Many couples also feel a sense of shame or embarrassment about their infertility, which can make it challenging to seek help. The first step to overcoming infertility is understanding the issues, which can be a mix of factors as this post has explained.
