What is Infertility? Laguna Hills & Orange County

Generally, infertility is the inability to conceive despite having unprotected sex at the right time frame and conditions. Infertility may result from any of the steps for pregnancy to occur. The steps expected for pregnancy to occur range from a woman’s body releasing an egg from one of her ovaries to meet sperm released by a man for fertilization to occur. The fertilized egg will then go through a fallopian tube towards the uterus, and the embryo must be attached to the uterus for implantation. Any misstep to this process may lead to infertility.

What Can Cause Infertility?

Infertility may be from either gender. In men, it may be a result of disruption of testicular or ejaculatory function caused by trauma to the testes, unhealthy habits, using of certain medications or supplements, radiation, or certain medical conditions. A hormonal disorder or genetic disorder may also cause it. 

The ovaries, fallopian, and uterus must be functioning for a woman to conceive, and problems affecting any of these organs contribute to infertility. Such problems are disrupting the ovarian function, which PCOS may cause, diminished ovarian reserve, FHA, improper functions of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, premature ovarian insufficiency, or menopause. Other problems are fallopian tube obstruction and abnormal uterine contour.
