Infertility: Symptoms, Diagnosis and treatment
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive. A couple may be labelled infertile if the woman does not fall pregnant after two years of regular sexual intercourse without contraception.
Primary or secondary infertility can occur. Primary infertility occurs when a couple has never had a child. Secondary infertility is the inability to conceive after a prior pregnancy.
Common causes of infertility of females include:
- Ovulation problems
- Tubal blockage
- Pelvic infection
- Age-related factors
Male infertility is mostly caused by poor sperm quality.
Treatment is based on the underlying reason of infertility. Some couples may be able to control it with medications, while others may require corrective surgery, which is often performed laparoscopically and by Hysteroscopy. If these treatments fail, procedures such as IUI and IVF may be required. As a result, any couple experiencing infertility should seek the advice of an Infertility Specialist in Noida.
