Certain factors might put women at higher risk of infertility which includes

  1. AGE – The increase in age brings down the fertility levels of women due to the decrease in the ovarian reserve and quality
  2. WEIGHT – Being overweight or underweight may cause fluctuation in the ovulation cycle
  3. TOBACCO & ALCOHOL USE – They have a negative impact on fertility and drastically decreases the chances of pregnancy
  4.   SEXUAL HISTORY – Improper and less frequent sexual contact is one of the main reasons which most of the times go overlooked

The most common causes of female infertility are

  1. ANOVULATION – The inability of the ovaries to produce the eggs that affect the fertilization process
  2. PCOS – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a condition in which ovaries contain a large number of immature follicles. This condition leads to hormonal imbalance and infertility
  3. ENDOMETRIOSIS – It is a condition in which the tissues which grow inside the uterus grow outside of it which affects the uterus lining and egg implantation
  4. TUBAL INFERTILITY – Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes prevent the fertilization process by blocking the sperm from getting to the egg


The signs of infertility are vague and difficult to detect outright. Some signs that may point to infertility might include irregular periods, heavy periods, absence of periods, and symptoms of hormonal imbalance like weight gain.


Infertility is assessed through a comprehensive  physical examination and specific diagnostic tests like

  1. Ovulation testing
  2. Hormones testing
  3. Hysterosalpingography
  4. Ultrasound
  5. Laparoscopy


The treatment methods provided for infertility vary from person to person and depend on several diagnosed factors. The treatment options provided to patients include hormonal tablets, Intrauterine insemination, and Invitro Fertilization.
