Overcoming Infertility is possible

Overcoming Infertility is possible

Infertility is understood as the biological inability to conceive, contribute to conception, or carry a pregnancy to its full term. While it has no impact on one’s physical health, the concept of being infertile tends to affect people mentally and socially. This is primarily due to the social taboos, myths and judgments associated with it. It’s essential to remember that being infertile mightmake conception difficult, but it isn’t impossible. With the right awareness and professional help, you will definitely be able to bring a cute little bean into your family!

The WHO defines infertility as “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse,unexplained by other medical diagnoses.” Infertility can take form in two ways.

Primary infertility is what takes place with someone who has never had a pregnancy. Secondary infertility is a failure to conceive after being successful previously. It is important to bust the myth that infertility is only a waman’s problem. In many families across India, women tend to be blamed and judged for their problems with conceiving. In fact, men can equally influence the process of conceiving. Various reproductive issues in men cause infertility and can impact the process.

 Knowing the causes of infertility helps couples to understand their bodily processes better and know when to seek help. Some common causes of infertility in women are ovulation disorders, uterine or cervical abnormalities, tumors in uterine walls, damaged or infected fallopian tubes, endometriosis, thyroid problems, cancer/it’s treatments, and possible genetic abnormalities. Some common causes of infertility in men are abnormal sperm production/functioning, issues with proper delivery of the sperm, overexposure to toxic chemicals, drug abuse, pollution, and harmful radiations. Depending on a couple’s history, investigations and medical examinations, the further course of treatment is decided upon by doctors.
