In this day and age, women are more concerned with their careers as a result of their increasing contribution to the economy. Besides, people need to work longer periods of time to acquire the basic necessities for marriage. Nutritional habits have changed and manmade food products and supplements have replaced natural foods. Environmental pollution is continually increasing parallel to the developments in the industry. Contrary to men, the ideal reproductive period for women still remains between the ages of 20-30 and women getting married at a later age are facing serious risk for reproductive problems.
It is no secret that the same conditions also affect men, yet, we can see that they are somewhat luckier in this regard. Please find more information about male infertility under the subsection titled sperm donation under treatments. Adding to the fact that women are getting married and having children at later stages in their lives, there might also be some congenital features which may be noteworthy. Some genetic, metabolic, endocrinological and immunological diseases may be directly linked with reproduction.
For instance, genetic diseases, as in Turner’s syndrome or this syndrome’s mosaic forms, some damages on the X chromosome may be inherited. Another important point for women is the frequency of occurrence of female infertility in the family. If this number is high, it would be advisable to have one’s ovarian reserves checked by an in vitro fertilisation certified doctor even if one has no health issues or symptoms of anything wrong. Metabolic diseases such as diabetes is the most frequently occurring disease in this group. Furthermore, endocrinological causes such as goiter and high levels of prolactin (lactation hormone) may result in infertility. Therefore, it is very important for women with goiter to have their ovarian reserves checked. Immunological diseases, as in the case of autoimmune whereby one’s body attacks own tissues and affects one’s endocrine organs, may attack the ovarian tissues after some time. For this reason, it is recommended that women with this kind of diseases aim to get pregnant at earlier stages of their lives.
