Ovulatory Disorders

Ovulatory problems account for 20 to 30% of infertility cases. A normal adult women ovulates every 25 to 32 days. Ovulation is actually a process of maturing eggs that have been "resting" in the ovaries since birth. Each day throughout a woman's life until she reaches menopause, a few eggs move from the "resting" state into an "active" state.

Fallopian tube obstruction is a major cause of female infertility. Blocked fallopian tubes are unable to let the ovum and the sperm converge, thus making fertilization impossible. Fallopian tubes are also known as oviducts, uterine tubes and salpinges.

Uterine Disorders

The uterus or womb is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. The disorders can be fibroids, adenomyosis, polyps, cancer, and infection causing a defective implantation.
