Common Fertility Problems

Infertility is defined as not being able to conceive (get pregnant) after one year or more of trying. In fact, 1 in 6 couples is infertile, yet this is often a silent struggle. 1/3 of the cases are from the female partner, 1/3 of the cases are from the male partner, and 1/3 is either both or unknown.

Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) occurs when a woman’s ovaries lose their reproductive potential, which refers to the quantity and quality of eggs

While AMH levels, an indicator of ovarian reserve, begin to decline in mid to late 30s, DOR can affect people of all ages.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder causing enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges.

One in ten women are affected by PCOS, half of which go undiagnosed. PCOS is the main contributor to anovulatory (no egg) infertility cases.

Tubal Blockage refers to a blocked fallopian tube, which is the passage for sperm to get to the eggs, as well as the path back to the uterus for the fertilized egg.

One in four women with infertility have a tubal blockage. However, if only one tube is blocked, an egg may still be fertilized through the other tube.

Endometriosis is a condition in which the endometrium grows outside of the uterus, generally near the pelvic lining, ovaries, or fallopian tubes.

More than 3 million people per year struggle with endometriosis. About one third to half of women with endometriosis have difficulty getting pregnant.

Sperm Quality begins to reduce around age 40-45. During spermatogenesis, the production of sperm, defects may occur, which can affect the morphology, count, and motility of the sperm.

Decreased sperm count will affect chances of conception. Discrepancies in sperm quality can be diagnosed through a semen analysis.
