Understanding Female Fertility Challenges



Having trouble getting pregnant? You're not alone. Many women experience fertility issues, but there are often reasons behind it and treatments available.


One common cause is ovulation problems. This means your ovaries aren't releasing an egg each month, which is needed for pregnancy. There are a few conditions that can cause this:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): This hormonal imbalance can lead to irregular periods and excess facial hair.

  • Thyroid problems: An overactive or underactive thyroid can disrupt ovulation.

  • Premature ovarian failure: When your ovaries stop working before age 40, it can be due to genetics, cancer treatment, or autoimmune conditions.

Another important factor is your fallopian tubes. These are the pathways where the egg and sperm meet for fertilisation. Blockages in the tubes can make it difficult to get pregnant or can lead to an ectopic pregnancy, which is when a fertilised egg implants outside the womb. Damage to the tubes can happen from:

  • Scarring from surgery

  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like chlamydia


The womb itself can also play a role in fertility. Fibroids, which are non-cancerous growths in the womb, and some birth defects can affect implantation of a fertilised egg. Endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the womb lining grows outside the womb, can also cause fertility problems.


If you're concerned about your fertility, don't hesitate to seek help. A doctor can diagnose the cause of your problems and recommend the right treatment options.
