Infertility: Introduction

  • Female infertility is not being able to get pregnant after at least one year of trying to conceive.  If a woman keeps having miscarriages, then it is also known as female infertility.
  • Female infertility can result from hormone problems, age, physical problems, and environmental or lifestyle factors. In most of the cases, the infertility results from problems with production of eggs.
  • In the primary ovarian insufficiency (also known as premature ovarian failure), the ovaries stop functioning before normal menopause. In polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), women’s adrenal glands or ovaries produce more male hormones than normal.  In PCOS, the ovaries may not release a healthy egg or may not release an egg regularly.
  • Common causes of female infertility include hormonal problems, cervical issues, damage to fallopian tubes, and uterine trouble
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 10% of women in the U.S. i.e. 6.1 million women aged 15–44 are having difficulty in getting pregnant or staying pregnant
