Fertility Problems: Common Challenges in Men and Women

In the quest to start a family, one in six couples encounter fertility-related obstacles. Both men and women can face difficulties that prevent them from conceiving naturally. This article seeks to delve into the most common causes of infertility in both sexes, offering a clear vision of possible solutions and how Ingenes can support this vital process.

Fertility in Women: Causes and Solutions

Among women, fertility problems can be caused by multiple factors. Some of the most common include:

Ovulatory Problems: Lack of regular ovulation is a main cause of infertility in women. Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and premature ovarian failure can affect the release of eggs.

  • Solution: The specialist will provide medications to stimulate ovulation and recommend assisted reproduction treatments such as IVF may be effective.

Endometriosis: This condition, where tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus, can cause infertility.

  • Solution: Surgery to remove abnormal endometrial tissue and IVF are viable options.

Tubal Factor: Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes prevent eggs and sperm from meeting.

  • Solution: Reconstructive surgery or IVF can help.

Uterus Problems: Fibroids, polyps or uterine abnormalities can affect embryo implantation.

  • Solution: Surgical treatments and IVF procedures.

Fertility in Men: Causes and Solutions

Fertility problems in men are commonly due to:

Alterations in Sperm Quality: This includes low sperm concentration, poor motility (asthenozoospermia) or abnormal shape (teratozoospermia).

  • Solution: Changes in lifestyle, medications, and techniques such as ICSI within the framework of IVF treatment.

Varicocele: Dilation of the veins in the scrotum can affect sperm quality.

  • Solution: Surgery to repair varicocele can improve fertility.

Obstructions in the Seminal Ducts: These obstructions can prevent the release of sperm.

  • Solution: Surgery to remove the obstruction or direct extraction of sperm for use in assisted reproduction treatments.

Hormonal Problems: Hormonal imbalances can affect sperm production.

  • Solution: Medications to correct hormonal imbalances.
