Causes of female infertility

Ovulation Failure
Failure of ovulation represents approx. 30% of infertility . In most cases the failure is related to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). It can be diagnosed via an ultrasound scan, showing enlarged that contain several small cysts. In other cases, the ovulation does not occur due to premature menopause. In this case, egg donation is the only effective treatment.
Blocked or Damaged Fallopian Tubes
Fallopian tubes can be damaged following disease, endometriosis or pelvic surgery. Laparoscopy can confirm the extent of the damage and possible treatment options.
Hostile Cervical Mucus
A clear and abundant mucus is normally produced at the time of ovulation by the cervix, allowing sperm to penetrate the endometrial cavity. This can only be confirmed by a post coital test. Infertility related to hostile mucus can only be treated by Intra-uterine Insemination (IUI).
Endometriosis is defined as the presence of parts of endometrium outside of its normal location. Endometriosis is commonly noted on the ovaries, fallopian tubes or in the abdominal cavity. Endometriosis bleeds at the time of the period and produces small blood-filled cysts, leading to painful periods.
Fibroids are defined as a fibrous growth within the uterine wall. They can cause infertility once they reach certain size and distort the uterine cavity. In these cases they will need to be removed either via open surgery, laparoscopy or hysteroscopy.
