Female Infertility

Female Infertility

Female infertility refers to the inability of a woman to conceive after one year of regular, unprotected intercourse. It can be influenced by various factors, including hormonal imbalances, structural issues, or age-related decline in fertility.

PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder affecting women of reproductive age. Characterized by irregular menstrual cycles, elevated levels of male hormones (androgens), and polycystic ovaries, PCOS can lead to various health complications if left untreated.

Low AMH Level

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is a hormone that plays a critical role in assessing a woman’s ovarian reserve, which is a measure of the number of eggs available in the ovaries. A low AMH level, also known as a low ovarian reserve, can indicate that the ovaries are producing fewer eggs than normal. This can affect a woman’s ability to conceive naturally.

Uterine Fibroids & Infertility

Uterine fibroids can affect fertility in several ways. Submucosal fibroids, which distort the shape and size of the uterine cavity, can hinder embryo implantation. Additionally, fibroids can produce hormones that disrupt the ovarian cycle and hormone levels, affecting egg production and ovulation. Large fibroids may interfere with sperm transport within the reproductive tract, making conception more challenging.

Endometriosis & Infertility

Endometriosis can significantly impact fertility in various ways. The inflammation and scarring caused by the condition can obstruct the fallopian tubes, preventing the egg and sperm from fertilization. It can also affect the function of the ovaries and alter the quality of the eggs. Furthermore, the inflammation can interfere with implantation of the embryo.

Primary Ovarian Insufficiency

Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI), also known as Premature Ovarian Failure (POF), is a condition where a woman’s ovaries stop functioning properly before the age of 40. Unlike menopause, which is a natural decline in ovarian function typically occurring around age 50, POI leads to reduced estrogen production and irregular or absent menstrual cycles at a much younger age. This condition significantly affects fertility and can lead to various physical and emotional challenges.

Geriatric Counselling

Geriatric counselling is a therapeutic approach designed to address the mental and emotional needs of older adults. It focuses on providing support for the unique challenges that come with aging, such as dealing with chronic illnesses, cognitive decline, relationship changes, and the emotional aspects of transitioning into later life stages. Through individualized therapy plans, our experienced professionals work to help older adults maintain a high quality of life and emotional well-being.

Evaluation of Female Infertility

Evaluation of female infertility is a comprehensive diagnostic process designed to identify the underlying causes that may be preventing conception. This process involves various medical tests and assessments, including hormonal profiles, imaging, and specialized procedures to understand the reproductive system’s functioning.

Endometrium & Infertility

A healthy endometrium is crucial for successful embryo implantation, as it provides a suitable environment for the embryo to attach and develop. When the endometrium is not at its optimal thickness or quality, it can hinder implantation and affect fertility.

TB & Infertility

TB can affect the female reproductive system in several ways, often damaging the fallopian tubes, uterus, or ovaries. The infection can cause scarring and blockages in the reproductive tract, affecting the movement of the egg and sperm and making conception more difficult. Additionally, TB can impact the hormonal balance, further contributing to infertility.

Thyroid & Infertility

Thyroid health significantly impacts fertility. Hypothyroidism, with symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, and irregular cycles, can affect ovulation and increase the risk of miscarriage or luteal phase defect. Hyperthyroidism, with symptoms like weight loss and irregular cycles, can reduce ovarian reserve and raise the risk of premature birth and low birth weight. Autoimmune thyroid disorders can also impact fertility.

Obesity & Female Infertility

Obesity can significantly impact female fertility by disrupting hormonal balance and metabolic processes. Excess body fat can lead to insulin resistance, which can affect the menstrual cycle and the regularity of ovulation. Additionally, high levels of estrogen and leptin, hormones often found in higher concentrations in obese individuals, can interfere with reproductive function.
