– Female Infertility –
* FAILURE to OVULATE *
The common reason why women are unable to conceive is the Ovulation disorders and fortunately these cases can be treated successfully by Ayurveda Medicines along with Panchakarma therapy.
Cause of ovulation failure
It is the common cause of ovulation failure. Ovulation process completely depends upon the hormonal balance and their successful interactions. Any disruption in this process causes ovulation failure.
The main reasons for this disruption are
* FAILURE TO PRODUCE MATURE EGGS:
In about 50% of anovulation cases, abnormal follicles are produced by the ovaries inhibiting the egg maturation. With immature eggs the ovulation chances become less leading to non- fertilization. Polycystic ovary syndrome PCOS, is the common disorder responsible for this problem. The symptoms are hirsutism, amenorrhoea, anovulation and infertility and this syndrome is characterized by a reduced production of hormone like FSH, and normal or increased levels of LH, testosterone and oestrogen. As per recent hypothesis is; only partial development of ovarian follicles is associated with the suppression of FSH and ultrasound scanning can help detect the follicular cysts. The affected ovary becomes double its normal size due to smooth white capsule in its surrounding.
* SCARRED OVARIES
Any kind of physical damage to the ovaries may result in anovulation. Extensive or multiple surgeries for repeated ovarian cysts can cause scars or damage to ovary capsules. To such an extent that follicles can no longer mature properly thereby leading to anovulation. Infection may also impact ovulation.
* PREMATURE OVARIAN FAILURE
This is an unexplainable cause of ovulation failure. In some women menopause begins before expected age leading to depletion of natural egg supply. It is majorly found in extremely athletic women with low body weight and prone to extensive exercise. Genetic possibility for this condition cannot be ruled out.
* FOLLICLE PROBLEMS
The “unruptured follicle syndrome” occurs in women who produce a normal follicle, that carry an egg inside but they fail to rupture every month. This inhibits proper ovulation.
