What are ovulatory conditions and how do they impact fertility?

A healthy sperm must travel through the woman's healthy uterus to reach the fallopian tubes, which in turn must be healthy to allow free passage of the sperm. The sperm must then find an egg suitable for fertilization from a healthy ovary.

Ovulatory conditions, what should I know to be prepared?

Fertilization is a very complex natural process involving several factors.

A healthy sperm must travel through the woman's healthy uterus to reach the fallopian tubes, which in turn must be healthy to allow free passage of the sperm. The sperm must then find an egg suitable for fertilization from a healthy ovary.

Once all these factors converge, fertilization takes place.

When fertilization has occurred, the resulting embryo must implant correctly in the uterus for normal growth to produce a new baby.

If any of these steps fail, the result is infertility.

Today, we will focus on the conditions that affect the ovaries and how they impact a woman's fertility.

Most common ovulatory conditions.

When we refer to ovulatory conditions, we are talking about all the factors that affect the successful production of healthy eggs.

It can manifest through various conditions, such as:

  • Amenorrhea (absence of menstruation)
  • Anovulation (absence of ovulation)
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Hyperprolactinemia (increased prolactin hormone)
  • Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
  • Poor oocyte quality
  • Obesity
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Ovarian reserve
  • Insulin resistance
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (most common cause of female infertility)
  • Hormonal procedures

Hormones play a very important role when it comes to the ovaries. Any imbalance in hormone production directly affects the function of the ovaries.

The menstrual period is only the apex of a 28-day process during which the brain consistently secretes the hormones necessary for the ovaries to mature the eggs so that they can be fertilized by a healthy sperm.

As mentioned above, any imbalance in hormone production can trigger infertility.

Even the overproduction of certain hormones directly affects the function of the ovaries.

The correct production of hormones is a very delicate procedure involving many factors, so it’s important to see a specialist to detect any relevant abnormalities.
