5 Reasons Why A Woman Can't Get Pregnant

Carrying your own baby is an unexplainable joy of a mother. But when you are not able to conceive, so many thoughts run through the head and depression comes in slowly. 

Infertility is the main culprit for not getting pregnant. The truth is that most cases of infertility are silent. 

Male infertility rarely has symptoms. 

Here are the reasons for not getting pregnant: 

1. Not Ovulating: For pregnancy to occur there must be an ovulation. If you are not ovulating, you won't be able to get pregnant. Anovulation is the medical word for not ovulating. It can be triggered by some conditions:

a. PCOS(Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome): this is the main cause of not ovulating. 

b. Excessive exercise.

c. thyroid dysfunction.

d. Underweight. 

2. Blocked Fallopian Tubes: This is another major reason for infertility in women. 

The fallopian tubes are the pathway between the ovaries and the uterus. Sp*erms must swim up from the cervix through the uterus and into the fallopian tubes. 

When the egg is released from the ovaries, it is drawn into the fallopian tubes and then conception takes place. 

There are many causes of blocked fallopian tubes. Some women experience pelvic pain while others do not have any symptoms. 

Only fertility tests can determine if your fallopian tubes are open or not. 

3. Endometriosis: Endometriosis is when the tissue that lines the uterus grows in places outside and of the uterus. 

Almost 50% of women with endometriosis have difficulties getting pregnant. 

The common symptoms of endometriosis include: 

a. Painful periods.

b. Pelvic pains.

Endometriosis is sometimes misdiagnosed. It can't be diagnosed with a bloods test or ultrasound scan. It requires a diagnostic laparoscopy.

4. Male infertility: It takes two to tango. 30% of infertility is discovered from the man's side. 

Male infertility rarely has symptoms that are noticeable. Seeing a doctor is very important for couples having infertility issues so the doctor can run a semen analysis on the man which measures the health of the semen and sp*rm. 

5. Underlying Medical Problems: Some underlying medical problems can lead to infertility in both men and women. For example, thyroid imbalance, diabetes etc. 

Some autoimmune diseases like lupus, STDs can cause infertility.
