What Is Infertility?
Infertility in women refers to the inability to become or stay pregnant. The general recommendation of when to seek medical assistance is if a woman is unable to become pregnant after a year of trying, or a woman over the age of 35 unable to become pregnant after six months of trying. While it commonly refers to not being able to conceive, infertility can happen at any stage of a pregnancy.
Infertility impacts many women every year, but it can affect men as well. Seeking medical assistance can help diagnose if the inability to successfully conceive is because of the man, the woman, or both partners, so an infertility treatment can be put into action.
What Can Cause Infertility in Women?
Most infertility issues for women are linked to complications with ovulation. Irregular or lack of periods affects the number of eggs a woman has available to fertilize.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, is a condition that causes a hormone imbalance and is one of the major causes of infertility. Similarly, primary ovarian insufficiency, or POI, causes a woman’s ovaries to work insufficiently before they turn 40.
Other common causes that can affect fertility in women include:
- Blocked fallopian tubes
- Non-cancerous clumps of muscles or tissues on the uterine walls
- Physical problems with the uterus
There are a variety of medication or treatment options available to help with these complications that prevent successful pregnancies.
What Can Impact a Woman’s Ability to Conceive?
Age can have a negative effect on a woman becoming pregnant. While many women are waiting until they are older to become pregnant, this is actually causing issues as the chance of a woman getting pregnant decreases after they turn 30.
In addition to age, other things that can alter a woman’s ability to become pregnant include:
- Athletic training
- Being overweight or underweight
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Hormonal changes or health concerns (such as PCOS or POI)
- Sexually transmitted diseases or infections
