Female Infertility What is it?, Causes, symptoms and treatments.
Female infertility is called the inability to conceive of pregnancy because of problems directly related to women.
Causes of infertility in women may be due to a number of factors such as:
- Problems in egg production (This is due to failures in the endocrine system which can lead to an absence of ovulation, as well as ovulation at unexpected times or deficiency in ovarian production).
- Abnormalities in the fallopian tubes (This is due to obstruction in both fallopian tubes, place of the reproductive apparatus where fertilization occurs) or alteration in the motility of the tubes.
- Cervical factor (This is due to blockages in the form of polyps or fibroids in the cervix, an area where sperm should pass in the search for the egg or some infection at the cervical level).
- Uterine disorders (e.g. uterine malformations, fibromatosis and endometritis).
