What causes female infertility?


Topic starter
Several things can lead to a woman not being able to have children, such as

Disorders of Ovulation: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid issues can make ovulation difficult.
Age: As you get older, especially after 35, your fertility goes down because your eggs aren't as good or as many.
Damage to the fallopian tubes: Sperm can't reach the egg if the tubes are blocked or broken. This can happen because of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or endometriosis.
Problems with the uterus: Fibroids, polyps, or birth defects can make fertilization difficult.
Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue that looks like the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus. It can affect the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other parts of the pelvis.
Hormonal Imbalances: Fertility can be affected by problems with the hormones that control periods.
Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, drinking too much alcohol, being overweight, and not eating well, can make it hard to get pregnant.

It is important to talk to a doctor about the reasons of infertility in order to diagnose and treat them.

Some of the things that can make it hard for a woman to get pregnant are issues with ovulation (like hormonal imbalances), problems with the reproductive organs' structure (like blocked fallopian tubes), conditions like endometriosis, a drop in egg quality with age, and some health problems (like polycystic ovary syndrome). Lifestyle choices like smoking, being overweight, or being under a lot of stress can also make it worse. The types of treatments available rely on what the medical exam shows as the cause.
