A woman is diagnosed with infertility if she has failed to get pregnant after a year of unprotected intercourse. However, the inability to conceive may be caused by dysfunction of the man’s reproductive system. Generally, one-third of infertility issues are caused by a problem with the woman, one-third by that of the man, and a third is either a combination or unknown. Many couples face infertility issues and there are many effective remedies. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), about 6% of married women between the ages of 15–44 in this country are unable to get pregnant after 12 months of unprotected sex. In addition, about 12% of women in this same age have difficulty either getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy full term, says the CDC.
Conditions affecting a woman’s ovaries, fallopian tubes or uterus can contribute to infertility. The most common cause is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormone imbalance that affects the development and release of a woman’s eggs during ovulation. Other, issues include: blocked fallopian tubes (caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine fibroids and endometriosis.
Most common causes of infertility in men include:
• Varicocele. This is a condition in which the veins on the testicle(s) are enlarged, causing heat that negatively impact the number or sperm, and/or their shape.
Too few or no sperm produced.
Inefficient movement of sperm.
Infertility treatment includes medicine, surgery, artificial insemination and assisted reproductive technology. Drugs and surgery are the most commonly used approaches. Assisted reproductive technology refers to various methods that involve the removal of eggs from a woman, that are then mixed with sperm in a laboratory to produce embryos. The embryos are then implanted into the woman, or a surrogate. Recommended treatments depend on the cause of infertility, the age of the couple and their preferences. Often more than one method are used in combination.
