All About Infertility: What It Means Not to Have a Baby

A surprising large number of women all around the world deal with female infertility. There are numerous causes and potentially numerous treatments, though it is sometimes incurable. In those situations, it is important to discuss the possibility of talking with a therapist or getting some supportive help because it can be emotionally tolling to deal with the diagnosis. The definition of female infertility is the inability to get pregnant or have a child.

Egg Cells

There are multiple causes of female infertility, including ovulation cycle disorders, anatomical deformities, endometriosis, early menopause, and cancer among others. Ovulation is defined as the release of an egg from the ovary. There can be many underlying causes of ovulation disorders, but all of them involve the inability of an ovary to release an egg. Without the release of an egg, the sperm cannot fertilize the egg, and an embryo can never be formed. Anatomical deformities can include deformities of the uterus or the fallopian tubes. These deformities can be hostile to the implantation of a fertilized egg, so the embryo has no place to grow. Endometriosis is a condition in which there is endometrial tissue, which is normally found only on the inner lining of the uterus, found outside of the uterus. This is generally a painful condition and can lead to infertility because the endometrial tissue outside the uterus goes through menstrual cycles just as the endometrial tissue in the uterus does. Menopause is the process a women goes through when she runs out of eggs and the ovary no longer ovulates. This normally occurs in middle aged women, but can rarely occur in women in their twenties and thirties. In these situations, the women no longer ovulates and therefore cannot have a baby. Cancer of any tissue, including the uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries, can lead to female infertility. There are many causes that are not included in this list, but these are the most common among women.

 

The treatment of female infertility depends on the underlying cause, which should be determined by a physician. For some underlying causes, there is no known treatment and continuing trying to have a baby could even potentially be more dangerous than stopping. Among the most commonly prescribed initial treatments for female infertility include weight loss, cessation of smoking, healthy diet, and continued sexual intercourse during the period of the ovarian cycle that is determined to be ovulation.

 

In conclusion, there are many underlying causes of female infertility and it is a complex diagnosis. Discussing symptoms with a doctor and running through tests prescribed can help determine an underlying cause, which can lead to options for treatment. Though treatment is not always successful, there are other options such as adoption. In addition, women diagnosed with infertility should always be recommended to talk to someone about the feelings they are experiencing.

  1. We had been trying for months. We were convinced that he was the problem. But my health had been deteriorating in ways that I did not want to acknowledge. When we finally got our answer we realized that our outlook was tainted by our misgivings about adoption. Luckily we educated ourselves and got over our hangups.

  2. I can’t have kids. It’s really hard to be so young, knowing that I will not be able to have the family that I have always dreamed of having since I could walk and talk. I have a boyfriend but he does not know yet. I am scared to tell him. What if he does not want to be with me anymore because I cannot have kids. I know he wants a large family. Maybe he will be willing to adopt. But it is not the same. I want me kids to look like me, act like me, laugh like me…
    What should I do?

  3. I’ve always loved young children as I grew up being the older sibling in a big family. So when I found out I wouldn’t be able to have children of my own, I was heartbroken. It absolutely destroyed me. My husband and I cried together in bed for months. Then we began to consider other options on how to begin our family because in our hearts that is what we both still wanted despite my body’s limitations. We’re now looking into adopting a beautiful little girl. We’re already a few months into the process and I’ve already decked out her room in preparation for her new room in our home. We’re both so excited to welcome her into our family.

  4. I found out that my chance of having children was near impossible due to underlying conditions when I was 15. As a child who grew up in foster care, one of my dreams was to have a child who would be raised in a loving environment. I was crushed by the news. Years later, I have been unable to conceive and struggle with it immensely. My fiance, however, has tried bringing up adoption as an option instead, but it still feels like my body is a failure. I have agreed that adoption would be a wonderful way to fulfill my dream of having a child with a good childhood, in the end.

  5. My wife had a problem with infertility as she had Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome. Luckily we were able to have our beautiful daughter using IUI methods. It is fortunate that they was determined early so we could know about the challenges ahead with fertility.

  6. The most common causes of female infertility include problems with ovulation, damage to fallopian tubes or uterus, or problems with the cervix. Age can contribute to infertility because as a woman ages, her fertility naturally tends to decrease.
    Antibiotic treatment might cure an infection of the reproductive tract, but doesn’t always restore fertility. Treatments for sexual intercourse problems. Medication or counseling can help improve fertility in conditions such as erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. Hormone treatments and medications.
    The cause of infertility may be difficult to determine but may include inadequate levels of certain hormones in both men and women, and trouble with ovulation in women.
    The main symptom is an inability to get pregnant. In many cases, there are no additional symptoms.
    Many treatments significantly improve the chances of getting pregnant. They include hormone treatments, fertility drugs, and surgery. In addition, assisted reproduction uses various medical techniques to fertilize an egg.These may include: Abnormal sperm production or function due to undescended testicles, genetic defects, health problems such as diabetes, or infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, mumps or HIV. Enlarged veins in the testes (varicocele) also can affect the quality of sperm.For instance, there is no evidence that either lying flat or elevating your legs for an extended period of time after intercourse will improve your chances of getting pregnant. … If you are using lubricants during intercourse you need to make sure you are using one that doesn’t impair sperm motility.

  7. All I ever wanted was to have children. When my husband and I struggled to conceive, I felt incredibly anxious and inadequate. The doctors said I had uterine damage that made it difficult for me to get pregnant. However, thanks to the GIFT assisted reproductive procedure, I was able to conceive, and now have three children (including one set of twins). While the experience was difficult and painful, it really brought my husband and I together, and I am grateful for the family that we’ve created together.
