Defects oftubules that transport sperm that are caused by trauma, abnormal developmentand injury. Other causes could be chromosomes defects, celiac disease,medications, and undescended testicles.   Inother cases, the female could be the cause of infertility. One of the mostcommon causes of infertility could be due to ovulation. If a woman is notovulating then that means she is not producing any eggs. This could happen towoman that are irregular with their menstrual cycle. When a female is havingdifficulty ovulating then this is often called (PCOS) Polycystic OvarianSyndrome or (POI) Primary Ovarian Insufficiency.  Other less cause that causes infertility inwomen could be blocked fallopian tubes due to pelvic inflammatory disease,endometriosis, or surgery.

Another cause could be physical problems with theuterus. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous clumps of tissue and muscle on thewalls of the uterus. For all these causes there is a treatment that could bedone.   Thereare many types of treatment that could be done to solve infertility problems.One of the treatment could be by taking medication which are Clomiphene andgonadotropins these medications regulate your reproductive hormones and helpsthe release of the eggs. Woman that are on these medication for at least 3-6months and then proceed to the next step. The Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)is a treatment which involves placing sperm inside a female’s uterus.

Anothertreatment is called In Vitro fertilization (IVF) which is when eggs are mixedwith sperm and if any of them are successfully fertilized then the embryos aretransferred to the uterus. Inractoplasmic sperm injection (ICIS) instead ofmixing the sperm with the eggs, a sperm is physically injected into an egg tomake it easier for fertilization. Once the egg and sperm are fertilized it’splaced into the uterus. There is also another option which is consideredgetting donor eggs and embryos which are considered to be healthy. The lastoption to consider is Gestational Surrogacy another female is carrying the parent’sbaby. Which means the mother and father embryos are placed into the uterus.

Oneof these many treatments has to work for a couple that is infertile.   Likein many other things there are consequences trying these treatments for thefirst time doesn’t guaranteed that they will be successful, it might not workthe first try but maybe the second or third time might be successful. Theremight be a physical and emotional exhaustion but at the end you will get theresult you want to obtain. But there are also many couples that don’t have theopportunity to start the treatments because they are very expensive and manycouple couples might not be financial stable to proceed with the treatment.Couples that have difficulty with fertility go through son many things but thefemale is the one that goes through more.

I think that this whole coupleinfertility is so unfair I think that every couple that is desiring to have ababy should have the opportunity to experience that and sacrifice whatever ittakes to become a parent. Infertility could also have a lot to do with thecertain age that the couple have mostly women because it effects female thatare age 35 and over, they are less likely to conceive.    For a couple to be infertile is a verydifficult thing to go through and it’s even more difficult when the couple isreally trying really bad to have a baby. Once they have through all theiroptions then the last option they could possibly have is to adopt a child.Family’s that are really trying to have a child don’t even care if it’s noteven their own blooded child.  I think acouple is nice and lucky to be able to get pregnant at the first chance thatthey try too even if they not expecting baby.

Infertility affects many couplesin the world. The way couple live their life also affects fertility and what inof habits they have. If you smoke or drink alcohol occasionally they willreduce the ability to be able to have a baby.

Obesity can also affect fertilityproblems and so can some diseases. Even some illegal drugs can also affectfertility issues. All of these causes affect the ability of being able toconceive.
