Female Reproductive Issues
Female Reproductive Issues
Endometriosis is one of the most common conditions affecting women in their reproductive years. Endometriosis occurs when endometrial cells, usually found only in the womb, migrate to other areas of the pelvic cavity such as the fallopian tubes or the ovaries.
This endometrial tissue can appear as spots or patches called implants or as cysts on the ovaries and can affect surrounding tissue, causing adhesions or scar tissue. A woman’s
ability to conceive might be impacted by endometriosis causing a blockage in the Fallopian tubes. It could also interfere with the ovulation function or diminish optimal conditions for the travelling egg/oocyte.
The only real way to diagnose endometriosis is by surgery or laparoscopy. Laparoscopy allows direct visualization and ideally biopsy of areas suspected of having endometriosis.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) causes symptoms in up to 20% of women of reproductive age. In fact, it is the single biggest inhibitor of female fertility. PCOS can interfere with hormones that regulate reproduction and the ovulation process.
PCOS is easily recognized through clinical assessment, hormonal analysis and ovarian ultrasound.
PCOS does not necessarily mean difficulty in becoming pregnant, and is often treatable with a combination of medication and lifestyle changes. At Rotunda IVF, we can give you best guidance and advice in tackling the treatment of PCOS.
The process of Ovulation is complex. There are a number of barriers to conception that you can encounter along the way. Diagnosing an ovulation problem is straightforward. It requires blood tests and, in some cases, an ultrasound scan.
Many women respond to medication that boosts the ovulation process, meaning IVF is not always required.
Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Fallopian tubes must be free and clear for a successful pregnancy. Blockage of the Fallopian or reproductive tubes account for 20-25% of fertility problems experienced by women. The most common causes are chronic infection, endometriosis or swelling of the tubes by secretion (hydrosalpinx).
If there is a tubal blockage, you will either be referred to a Rotunda IVF consultant who specializes in tubal surgery or you will be referred for IVF treatment.
Sometimes, the root cause of infertility can be psychological rather than physiological. It is not uncommon for a person to lose interest in sex due to stress or lifestyle factors. Some women even experience pain during sexual intercourse.
