Introduction

Infertility is a condition of the reproductive system that hinders the capacity of the body to conduct the fundamental function of reproduction.

There are a few issues that keep being asked again and over again. The following are some of the responses to the queries that are asked the most commonly about infertility.

What does Infertility mean?

Infertility and sterility are two different medical conditions. A patient is considered sterile if an in-depth medical examination has determined that they do not have a uterus, or ovaries, do not produce eggs and do not produce sperm.

Suppose a couple cannot produce a child despite having regular, unprotected sexual encounters for a year. In that case, they are said to have infertility, which is more appropriately referred to as subfertility. It does not imply you may never become pregnant.

 

How common is infertility?

These days, one couple out of every eight will have to deal with infertility because of changes in lifestyle and higher levels of stress brought on by work.

Is this a women’s problem?

Both men and women may be infertile, and the proportion of men and women affected by the condition is very close to being equal. It is estimated that around one-third of infertility cases are attributable to the female spouse, one-third are attributable to the male partner, and one-third are affected by a combination of issues in both partners.

How long should I try to conceive before going to the doctor?

If the woman is under the age of 35 and the couple has been trying to conceive for more than a year, couples are advised to speak with a fertility professional.

If the woman is above the age of 35 and has been attempting to conceive for more than six months, couples are advised to speak with a fertility doctor about their options.

What are the signs and symptoms of infertility?

Women may have the following symptoms:

  • Breast discharge with a milky appearance
  • An increase in acne and changes to your skin
  • Changes in sexual desire and arousal
  • Hair loss or hair thinning
  • Hot flashes
  • Intercourse that pains or the incapacity to have intercourse
  • Menstrual cycles that are abnormal, irregular, or painful
  • No menstruation
  • On the lips, chest, and chin, dark hair is growing
  • Weight gain that isn’t explained

Men may have the following symptoms:

  • Changes in hair growth
  • Changes in one’s sexual drive
  • Erection and ejaculation issues
  • In the testicles, there may be a pain, a lump, or swelling
  • Testicles that are small and firm

Does women’s age affect infertility?

The single most significant factor influencing a woman’s fertility is her age. A woman is born with her whole lifetime’s worth of eggs. The amount and quality of a woman’s eggs decrease as she gets older.

There are currently no procedures or therapies that can halt or reverse this process. A woman’s likelihood of conceiving each month at 30 is roughly 20%. It’s approximately 5% at the age of 40.

Does men’s age affect infertility?

After the age of 40, a man begins to experience a gradual decline in the quality of his sperm. On the other hand, the loss of fertility happens to males at a far more glacial pace than it does to women.

What is the best treatment for infertility?

Treatment for infertility is determined by the underlying reason for your reproductive problems, age, the time you’ve been trying to conceive, and personal preferences. There are a variety of treatments available, including:

  • Medication: Fertility medicines may help raise sperm count or trigger ovulation.
  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI)To provide sperm a head start beyond the cervix, sperm are placed into the uterus rather than in the vaginal canal.
