Infertility: Causes, Diagnosis, Risks, Treatments

Lesson 1: CAUSES OF WOMEN INFERTILITY

There are numerous factors constituting to infertility in both men and women and that it is not possible to use a blanket term to cover everything. Instead, all steps needed to be taken are to take a close look at different factors that can constitute to your inability to conceive and consider a personalized diagnostic solution to the problem.

OVARIAN CYSTS

Ovarian cysts are sacs filled with small fluids which are formed in the ovaries. In most occasions, ovarian cysts are not harmful, their only downside is that they can rupture and lead to much pain. If after the ovarian cysts get ruptured and no step is taken to treat it, it can develop into sepsis which is toxic and potentially lethal. The truth is the presence of cysts can step in with normal conception.

Most of our medical specialist often recommend surgery as the solution to remove cysts, this solution is often painful and quite costly too. And to say it all, there are the higher possibility and a probability of reducing ovarian cyst in the natural and less painful way which your medical specialist will never tell you.

‘LAZY’ OVARIES

“Lazy ovaries” is a term used to describe a case whereby an egg failed to get released as at when it should. This is sometimes diagnosed by the specialist as a reason for infertility in women. The solution they proffer is by prescribing infertility drugs like Clomid, to help induce ovulation. Unfortunately, researchers made in Washington have shown that there are higher chances of up to three times for women who had taken Clomid to develop ovarian cancer than those who doesn’t.

Again, your medical specialists failed to inform you that there are natural ways to stimulate and induce ovulation. Of course, with the rate at which the infertility drug industry is booming with increasing sales, do you think they would want you to cure your infertility the best way yourself?

PCOS (POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME)

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is the term used to describe a situation whereby there are too much of small cysts present within the ovaries. PCOS is said to be described as one of the most common reasons for infertility in the female. In some occasions, PCOS can be sourced from acne, obesity, Lack of ovulation, increased insulin resistance and in some cases excessive masculinizing hormones.

Don’t get it wrong, this doesn’t mean that patient suffering from acne or obesity will have PCOS. Also patient with ovarian cysts doesn’t mean they have PCOS.

Similarly, the patient having many symptoms of excess masculinizing hormones may develop unwanted facial and body hair as well as acne, but the truth is they might not have PCOS. Making the right diagnosis can be a difficult one, but treatment can be much easy especially with the prescription dietary supplement known as DCI, which is a human metabolite occurring naturally and helps in the process of metabolism of insulin.

ENDOMETRIOSIS

Endometriosis is the medical term used to describe a situation whereby the uterine lining which is known to shed as a part of the normal process of menstrual cycle outside the uterus, in contrast with the normal process of growing inside. This is one main reason for infertility in women.

Endometriosis can lead to the severe pain accompanying the menstrual period coupled with cases of heavy bleeding. These can often lead to a situation of repeated miscarriages.

A medical specialist in infertility related issue has advised and recommend the laparoscopic surgery as a solution to remove the endometrial lining and any other abnormal tissue. Though there are still other alternatives such as natural therapies all available as a solution to endometriosis. There have been positive feedbacks and lots of success stories from the patient suffering from endometriosis after they had used the traditional medicine, as well as traditional herbalism and acupuncture.

BLOCKED FALLOPIAN TUBE

Up to 40% of cases of female infertility problems might be said to be due to the problem of Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes. Blocked tubes will not allow the egg to reach the uterus as well as sperms to reach the egg. Most times, women don’t seem to know when they have the issue of blocked tubes as there are no obvious symptoms attached to it.

Through the pelvic ultrasound, we can always diagnose the blocked fallopian tubes .we can as well use a hysterosalpingogram, in which we place a dye into the cervix and then x-ray the pelvic region. We have two types of blocked tubes namely partial blockage and Hydrosalpinx. The partial blockage may occur due to endometrial lining closing off a portion of the tube, which can lead a situation called the tubal pregnant or ectopic pregnancy.

While the hydrosalpinx occurs at a situation of a complete blockage of the tube making it get filled with fluid, and this would result in tube dilation and swell as it fills. The probability of conceiving is zero if the tube gets affected. The history backing up the reasons for blocked tube are that of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, ruptured appendix, Chlamydia, endometriosis or various types of uterine infection. It is common for the Infertility specialists to recommend laparoscopic surgery as a solution to unblock the affected tube. The fact is that this can even double up the problem. Also in the case of a hydrosalpinx, it is often common for the specialists to recommend   hydro salpingectomy (total removal of the dilated fallopian tube). This will affect or even destroy any future chances of the female getting pregnant in a natural way, thus making her dependent on IVF treatments if there is a need for more children.Whereas there are many series of options which are not surgical related available to help with unblocking damaged fallopian tubes such as manual physical therapy and they have yielded much positive outcome.
