Dr. Meeta Nakhare - Infertility Treatment Specialist in Pune
infertility is when you have difficulty becoming pregnant or staying pregnant. Fertility difficulties can occur in women and men and can have many causes.
Infertility is the failure of a couple to become pregnant after 1 year of unsafe sexual intercourse.
- Infertility affects men and women.
- Most infertility problems are treated with medicine or surgery.
- Changes infertility treatment have made it possible for many women whose male partner is infertile to become pregnant. These new and advanced technologies include in IVF, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and other related systems.
The normal reproduction method requires interaction between the female and male reproductive tracts. The woman ovulates and delivers an egg from her ovaries to travel through the Fallopian tube to her uterus (womb). The male provides sperm. Both egg and sperm usually meet in the woman’s Fallopian tube, where fertilization occurs. The embryo then inserts in the uterus for further growth.
Infertility happens when something in this pattern does not occur. The difficulty could be with the woman, with the man, or with both. Unknown factors cause infertility 10% of the time. For infertility with an unknown cause, all findings from regular tests may be normal. The actual problem of infertility may not be identified because the difficulty maybe with the egg or sperm itself or with the embryo and its failure to implant.
