Women: Are You Having a Difficult Time Conceiving?
Infertility affects more couples than you think. Over 20% of couples in the U.S. report difficulties in conceiving a child.In a third of these cases, it is the man that faces fertility issues; in about another third, it is the woman; in another third, it is both the male and female who require fertility solutions.
Over the past twenty years, fertility problems have increased dramatically. There are many reasons today that affect the ability to conceive. To mention just two: the increase of stress in our daily lives and the fact that couples are trying to become pregnant at an older age than in past generations.
With 1 in 5 couples facing infertility issues, more and more couples are turning to all-natural fertility treatments to help them start a family. There's no better time for couples planning a baby to turn to herbal-nutritional innovations. Somalabhas been a leader in the arena of herbal enhancement, known for its performance-specific formulations for both men and women.
The following are just a few major reasons related to the fertility issues concerning woman:
- Tubal factors. Fallopian tubes may have been damaged by infection, such as pelvic inflammatory disease or sexually transmitted disease, birth defects or traumas, such as burst appendix, abdominal surgery, abortion or tubal pregnancy.
- Endometriosis. Endometrial cells from the uterus sometimes implant themselves in the abdominal cavity, its lining, the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder or bowel. Pelvic adhesions, distorted organs and damage to the ovaries or fallopian tubes because of endometriosis can cause infertility.
- Ovulatory disorders. The failure to ovulate, because of a hormonal imbalance, tumors or cysts on the ovaries or thyroid gland problems, will prevent conception. Polycystic ovary syndrome, characterized by large, smooth ovarian cysts, also can cause infertility. Ovulation can be influenced by excess weight, excessive weight loss, persistent stress and abuse of alcohol or drugs.
- Hormone levels. Once the egg is fertilized, if a woman’s hormones do not do what they need to, pregnancy is more challenging.
- Unexplained factors. These include abnormalities in the position, shape and size of the uterus, chromosomal abnormalities that make egg fertilization impossible and the absence of cervical mucus or thick mucus at the time of ovulation that can block sperm penetration.
The bottom line: Don't give up!
Women should see a doctor after 2 years of trying. A fertility specialist can start conducting a few simple tests which will tell if any of the above relate to you. Then there are a couple of procedures that can happen if all tests are clear.
However, before more extreme measures are taken, there are easy things women can do to increase their chances of conceiving.
