About Infertility

The stress and struggles that come with infertility don't have to be with us forever.

A number of women suffer from infertility. Infertility is the term for when women try to get pregnant and within a year of trying fails or has miscarriages. This can happen for several reasons.

Women’s ovaries provide them with tons of eggs throughout their lifetime. Normally, during ovulation, eggs are released from the ovaries and they travel down the fallopian tube until they are fertilized. If these eggs are not used, they are shed during a woman’s menstrual cycle. For women who are infertile, they either re not producing the eggs at all, or they are producing eggs that cannot be fertilized. Premature Ovarian failure or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome may be the reason for these two problems.

The good news is that there are treatments for infertility that include medicine, reproductive technologies or surgery. Sometimes it is difficult to find out if one is infertile. The process takes time because everyone’s body is different. It also takes time to find the treatment that is best for each individual.

Infertility in women can come from her environment, a physical problem, lifestyle factors or hormones. Men can also be infertile. 1/3 of the time it is because of the man, 1/3 of them time it is because of the woman, and the other 1/3 of the time, no specific issue is found. More good news is that 2/3 of couples who cannot have children and are found infertile and treated for it, they are then able to have children.

The medical world is extremely advanced and will just keep advancing. When it comes to technology, it has really helped doctors save lives and create lives. Infertility no longer means you absolutely cannot have children, there is usually an answer.
