Infertility is always a difficult diagnosis for couples, but innumerable outlets of advice and treatment are available. Female infertility has many possible remedies, but these are rarely quick fixes. Instead, many courses of drugs or treatments can be necessary before a successful conception.
Ovulation failure and tubal damage
Many women suffer from erratic menstrual periods, known as oligomenorrhoea, where eggs come at widely spaced intervals, negatively influencing fertility. By the same token, women can stop having periods at all (amenorrhoea). These conditions are provoked by a number of different causes, and can be diagnosed by a doctor. Nearly all cases of ovulation failure are treatable. Fallopian tube damage can be caused by miscarriage, appendicitis, STI, or after abdominal damage. If the damage is severe, such as a bad infection, lining of the tubes can be permanently harmed. Surgery can be effective opening tubal blockages, which can help to restore functionality.
Treatments and IVF
Fertility drugs are often the first medical option considered, before the treatments mentioned above. Each course of drugs (lasting between 3 and 6 months) attempts to improve or restore fertility, though success is not ensured. When a woman’s problems are unresponsive to treatment, couples think about assisted conception. This takes many forms, with IVF the most well-known. You may anticipate pain during IVF, but this is quite rare, and any injections to help develop the eggs are not nearly as painful. Surrogacy and donors are both options as well.
