Problems with Getting Pregnant: What Went Wrong
All of your girlfriends don`t have the slightest problems with getting pregnant. Almost all of them will become mothers soon and you, you`ve been trying for years without any success. What went wrong to your reproductive health? You must be infertile if you`ve been trying for at least a year to conceive.
Don`t worry so much if you are because 95% of infertility can still be cured. First of all, you should determine first what could have caused your problems with getting pregnant.
Here are some possible problems with getting pregnant:
– Endometriosis. You have this condition if cells and tissues that should be growing on the uterine lining are instead growing outside the uterus. Sometimes, these excess cells and tissues are glued to the blood released during menstruation. This condition can be one of the problems with getting pregnant if it will damage the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Most women suffering endometriosis feel no symptom but some suffer pelvic pain, pain during sex, or painful periods.
– Hormonal Imbalance. Mature eggs will only be produced with the help of progesterone and estrogen. The egg cell production will be affected if one of these hormones is absent or when their production is insufficient.
– PCOS. Polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS causes problems with getting pregnant in many ways. Women with this syndrome may not be able to regularly release egg cells or won`t be able to release healthy and mature egg cells. Some women with PCOS may release eggs and be fertilized, but their uterus may not allow the fertilized eggs to be implanted, thus, pregnancy will not happen.
– Blocked Fallopian Tubes. Pelvic inflammation, sexually transmitted diseases, endometriosis, and surgery can block the fallopian tubes. This condition hinders sperm cells to successfully reach the egg cells and make fertilization possible.
– Uterine Fibroids. With this condition, you will have non-cancerous tumors growing outside or inside the uterus. These tumors don`t directly affect fertility but these can also cause problems with getting pregnant. Bigger tumors can affect the fallopian tubes and the implantation of fertilized eggs.
– Poor Egg Cell Quality. Unhealthy egg cells cause problems with getting pregnant. Women producing poor egg cell quality have more difficulty getting pregnant. Usually, this condition affects older women because egg cell quality commonly deteriorates as a woman ages.
– Anovulation. This is a condition wherein a woman does not release any egg cell. There are many reasons for anovulation like rigid exercises or hormonal imbalance. If you have this, your case can still be cured by targeting the cause of this problem.
– Thyroid Diseases. Goiter, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and other diseases related to the thyroid can cause problems with getting pregnant. This is because thyroid affects competitiveness of the hormones affecting woman fertility.
As you age, problems with getting pregnant will continue to increase. It`s best that you start curing any of your problems now than worry about that later. Remember, the clock is already ticking—sooner or later, you will not be able to bear a child anymore.
