Investigation and Infertility Treatment

Infertility in couples is a complex issue that requires careful examination, as there are numerous factors that can contribute to it.

Female infertility is often caused by anatomical or functional disorders of the reproductive organs.

Some common causes of female infertility include:

  • ◉   Ovulation disorders
  • ◉   Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • ◉   Endometriosis and adenomyosis
  • ◉   Pelvic adhesions
  • ◉   Fallopian tube damage or blockage
  • ◉   Hormonal disorders

On the other hand, male infertility is typically attributed to sperm abnormalities, including issues with motility and morphology. It’s also important to consider potential diseases that can impact reproductive function in males.

When evaluating couples experiencing infertility, it is essential to gather relevant information about their sexual habits, lifestyle factors such as work activity, diet, alcohol and tobacco consumption, as well as their reproductive history, including any sexual problems, reproductive system diseases
or infections, and past surgeries.

Following a comprehensive evaluation, diagnostic tests are scheduled to determine the underlying causes of infertility. Treatment options may include planned intercourse, medication therapy, insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF) or reproductive surgery.

Each couple’s case is unique and is approached individually, with personalised treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.
