What causes infertility?

The Infertility is a complex and emotionally challenging condition that affects millions of individuals and the couples worldwide. It is defined as the inability to conceive a child after one year of regular, unprotected intercourse for couples under 35, or six months for couples over 35. There are several factors that can contribute to infertility, and the Care 24 Fertility Center is dedicated to diagnosing and addressing these issues to help individuals and couples achieve their dream of parenthood.

Reproductive Health Issues:

The Ovulatory Disorders: One of the most common causes of female infertility is ovulatory disorders. Conditions like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can disrupt the regular release of eggs from the ovaries.

Endometriosis: The Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. This can block the fallopian tubes and interfere with egg implantation.

Uterine Problems: Abnormalities in the structure of the uterus, such as fibroids or polyps, can hinder the implantation of a fertilized egg.

Male Factors:

Low Sperm Count: A low sperm count or poor sperm quality can significantly impact a couple’s ability to conceive. Factors like lifestyle, genetics, and medical conditions can contribute to this issue.

Erectile Dysfunction: Difficulty in achieving or maintaining an erection can hinder sexual intercourse, making it challenging to conceive.

Age and Lifestyle:

Advanced Age: Female fertility declines with age, especially after 35. The women age, the quality and quantity of their eggs decrease, making it more difficult to conceive.

Smoking and Alcohol: Both smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can harm reproductive health in both men and women.

Stress: High levels of stress can interfere with ovulation in women and reduce sperm count in men.

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI):

Some STIs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can cause scarring and blockage of the fallopian tubes, leading to infertility.
Medical Conditions:

Diabetes: Poorly managed diabetes can affect fertility in both men and women.

Thyroid Disorders: Thyroid imbalances can disrupt the menstrual cycle and affect ovulation.

Weight Issues:

Obesity: Being overweight or obese can interfere with hormone production and ovulation in women and reduce sperm quality in men.

Underweight: Low body weight and extreme exercise can disrupt the menstrual cycle in women, making it difficult to conceive.

Environmental Factors:

Exposure to environmental toxins, such as pesticides and pollutants, can harm reproductive health.

Unknown Causes:

In some cases, infertility may have no clear cause, which can be particularly frustrating for individuals and couples.
The Care 24 Fertility Center understands that each case of infertility is unique and requires a personalized approach to diagnosis and treatment. They offer a range of services, including comprehensive fertility evaluations, assisted reproductive technologies (ART) like in vitro fertilization (IVF), and fertility preservation options.

Diagnostic Procedures:

Care 24 Fertility Center utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic tools such as hormonal assessments, ultrasound imaging, and genetic testing to pinpoint the underlying causes of infertility.

Treatment Options:

For ovulatory disorders, medications like Clomiphene citrate or gonadotropins may be prescribed to stimulate ovulation.

In cases of male infertility, techniques like intrauterine insemination (IUI) can be employed to increase the chances of conception.

Advanced procedures like IVF are offered when more complex issues are at play, allowing for the fertilization of eggs outside the body before implantation.

Fertility preservation options, including egg freezing and sperm banking, are available for individuals who wish to postpone parenthood.

The Care 24 Fertility Center takes a holistic approach to fertility care, addressing not only the physical aspects but also the emotional and psychological challenges that infertility can bring. Support groups and counseling services are offered to help individuals and couples navigate this often difficult journey.
