Female infertility: Understanding causes and finding hope

Female infertility is a challenging, yet all-too-common issue that affects about one out of every five women in the United States. At Conceive NJ, our New Jersey fertility specialist believes in empowering women with knowledge about the causes of female infertility, while providing hope through advanced fertility treatments. If you’re facing difficulties conceiving, know that you are not alone – there are options available to help you on your journey to becoming a parent.

Understanding female infertility

Female infertility is often defined as the inability to conceive after a year of regular, unprotected intercourse. However, because women’s fertility declines as they move closer to menopause, we recommend that women 35 or older seek help from a reproductive endocrinologist if they have been trying to conceive without success for six months.

Several factors can contribute to female infertility.

Ovulation disorders. Irregular or absent ovulation can significantly affect fertility. Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hormonal imbalances or thyroid disorders can all disrupt the ovulation process.

Fallopian tube blockage or damage. Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes can prevent the sperm from reaching the egg, or the fertilized egg from reaching the uterus for implantation. This type of damage can be caused by infections, previous surgeries or endometriosis.

Uterine abnormalities. Structural abnormalities of the uterus, such as uterine fibroids, polyps, or adhesions, can interfere with embryo implantation and pregnancy.

Age-related factors. As a woman ages, the quantity and quality of her eggs naturally decline, reducing the chances of successful conception.

Hope for women’s infertility

Advanced fertility treatments from our New Jersey fertility specialist provide hope for women facing infertility. Depending on the underlying causes of women’s infertility, we provide a full complement of advanced fertility treatments to help you achieve your family-building goals.

Ovulation induction. Medications can be used to stimulate ovulation and regulate hormonal imbalances, increasing the chances of successful natural conception.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI). This procedure involves placing prepared sperm directly into the uterus during ovulation, increasing the chances of fertilization.

In vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF is a highly effective fertility treatment that involves retrieving eggs directly from the ovaries, fertilizing them with sperm in our IVF laboratory, and transferring one resulting embryo into the uterus. It can address multiple causes of infertility and offers higher success rates.

Donor eggs or surrogacy. For women with diminished ovarian reserve or certain medical conditions, using donor eggs or a gestational carrier can be a fulfilling, alternative path to parenthood.

With advancements in fertility treatments, the dream of starting a family is within reach for many women facing infertility challenges. By consulting with our expert fertility specialist at Conceive NJ, you can receive a comprehensive evaluation, personalized guidance, and a tailored treatment plan to address your specific needs.
