According to statistics about 9-14% of women are asking themselves the question “Why can’t I get pregnant?”.
Consider obstacles you might encounter in pregnancy. The causes of infertility can be purely physiological, that is, due to the state of the body of a woman or a man. The psychological causes of infertility are also important, as well as infertility of unknown genesis (that is, infertility, the cause of which cannot be established in the course of diagnostic measures), combined forms of infertility. So, what are the reasons why you can’t get pregnant? We will look at both the causes from women and men.
Menstrual irregularities . In general, irregular menstrual cycles can lead to problems with ovulation and are not always dangerous, you need to figure out what exactly is causing the violation. For the treatment of irregular cycles – especially for women who cannot get pregnant, you need to undergo a complete examination, to prescribe the appropriate treatment, and drugs that will help solve the problem.
Fibrous neoplasms of the uterus. These are benign tumors located in the uterus or cervix. How much they can affect the possibility of pregnancy depends on their size and location. Surgery is usually not required. Not all gynecologists will tell for sure if fibroids can cause infertility. However, it is important to be aware of the damage they cause.
Hormonal background. In about 30% of cases, the reason for the inability to become pregnant in women is a violation of the endocrine system. The main symptom of this type of infertility is the persistent lack of ovulation or its irregularity. In other words, a woman, due to a hormonal imbalance, fails in the maturation of the egg and its exit from the follicle. The cause of this disorder can be pathology of the central nervous system, thyroid gland and adrenal glands.
Infertility caused by hormonal factors is treated with medication, and, according to the leading specialists of the Lada clinic, with a precisely defined cause of hormonal imbalance in the body and properly prescribed treatment, it has a good prognosis.
The reason lies in psychology. Often the reason why it is impossible to get pregnant is the psychological state of the woman. The longer a woman cannot get pregnant, the more psychological stress her body is exposed to. It turns out to be a vicious circle. In such cases, with the question “Why can’t I get pregnant?” you need to contact not only a reproductive specialist, but also a psychologist who will help a woman identify the most powerful sources of chronic stress and get rid of them. Most likely, you will also need the help of an endocrinologist who will help balance the hormones in the body.
Male factor. The male factor may also be the reason why it is impossible to get pregnant. Male infertility is easier to diagnose than female infertility: it is enough to make a semen analysis (spermogram) to give a correct assessment of the fertilizing ability of sperm.
The results of laboratory studies will show not only a man’s ability to conceive a child, but the presence of infectious, endocrinological, immune diseases, genetic and oncological pathologies in his body.
