” Be ye fruitful and multiply” Gen 9vs7, “Go forth and multiply” Gen 1vs28. No woman wishes to be infertile, it is so painful to know that as a woman you cannot reproduce and it is not my wish for any woman that’s why I have
outlined the possible symptoms and solutions after each case so just incase you’re observing any of theses symptoms you can get checked out in a hospital
The most common causes of female infertility include problems with ovulation, damage to fallopian tubes or uterus, or problems with the cervix. Age can contribute to infertility because as a woman ages, her fertility naturally tends to decrease.
1) Ovulation Problems: this is the most common factor of infertility in women. It is any condition (usually hormonal) that prevents a mature egg from developing in your ovaries.
Possible symptoms: Absent or infrequent periods and abnormally light or heavy bleeding.
Possible solutions: Fertility drugs and IVF, or adoption.
2) Poor egg quality: The quality and number of eggs your ovaries produce naturally often declines significantly with age. So this case is peculiar to women who are advanced in age.
Possible symptoms: None.
Possible solutions: IVF using donor eggs or embryos, or adoption
3) Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which small follicles in your ovaries don’t develop into the larger, mature follicles that release eggs. It is characterized by hormone imbalances and unpredictable ovulation
Possible symptoms: irregular periods, excessive hair growth, acne, and obesity.
Possible solutions: weight loss, fertility drugs and IVF, or adoption. A diabetes drug called metformin (Glucophage) can help restore regular ovulation in some women.
4) Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes: this will prevent your partner’s sperm from getting to your egg and also prevent the fertilized egg from getting to your uterus. It can be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, sexually transmitted infections and previous sterilization surgery.
Possible symptoms: None
Possible solutions: Surgery to open the tubes, IVF if surgery fails or the tubes are too badly damaged to repair, or adoption.
5) Unexplained fertility problems: Your doctor may diagnose an unexplained fertility problem if there’s no clear explanation for your infertility (meaning the results of all tests are normal). Some experts think weight problems (being significantly under- or overweight), excessive exercise, and even environmental toxins may be contributing factors.
Possible symptoms: None.
Possible solutions: Fertility drugs combined with artificial insemination or other ART procedures (such as IVF), adoption and most importantly prayers. Yeah this might sound like a cliche for a Nigerian but we all know it is the master key.
You will notice that most cases have of symptoms of irregular menstruation. So if you’re having an irregular menstral cycle, see your doctor.
