Infertility and Treatment

Ovulation Problems

Polycystic ovary or decreased number of oocyte due to the age of woman results in ovulation problem. While oocyte growth and scheduled intercourse may be sufficient in the case of polystic ovary, it would be more logical to switch to IVF as soon as possible in the female group of advanced maternal age.
Another group experiencing problems with ovulation is the women with hormonal disorder. It may be at various stages, ranging from the total absence of hormones to disorder. Pregnancy is achieved by replacing the missing hormone or by hormonal regulation.

Cervical Problems

Rarely, a secretion that kills or immobilizes sperm is released from the cervix. In such a case, sperm is delivered to the back side of the uterus mouth with inoculation technique and saved from the effects of harmful secretions.

Do Cervix Problems Lead to Infertility In Women?

Age Factor

Women have the highest chance of spontaneous pregnancy at the end of their twenties. From the age of thirty, this chance gradually decreases. The chance of pregnancy begins to decrease rapidly after the age of 35 years, and more rapidly after the age of 40 years. Therefore, it is recommended that each family should have the number of children they desire at their 30s.

Factors That Cause Infertility In Women

Causes Related to Tubes

The tubes serve as a channel for sperm to reach the oocyte. While the chance of pregnancy decreases by a quarter in the case of an obstruction in one of the tubes, the obstruction of the two tubes decreases the chance to zero. In these patients, IVF is considered as the first option. If the age of a woman is young, a tube correction operation with laparoscopic surgery can be tried. Tubes may be obstructed due to infection, endometriosis, previous ectopic pregnancy or mechanical reasons. The treatment plan remains the same.

Uterine Factor

Depending on the location and size, benign tumors such as myoma in the uterus may impair the baby’s implantation. Even if the baby can somehow achieve to implant, the risk of miscarriage, intra-uterine death or premature birth may occur. However not every myoma is expected to act like that. Operation decision is made according to the measurements to be made. Intrauterine myomas or polyps may prevent the implantation to a smaller extent. There, it is recommended to remove 10 mm or larger masses from the uterus.
