Home > Most Common Causes of Female Infertility

What are the causes of female infertility, In many societies, female infertility is thought of as a taboo and hence most discussed matter? Hence, as male infertility is given less importance similarly there is a latent need to increase awareness about male infertility.

There are several issues which are accountable for female infertility. Here Dr. Anuja Singh (Centre Head-Indira infertility clinic and test tube baby center in Patna) lists some of the most common direct and indirect causes of female infertility. These are to be examined to uncover the actual cause of infertility.

Indirect causes of Female Infertility


One of the principal causes of female infertility is obesity. Highlighting this most prevalent cause Dr.Anuja Singh (Center Head-Indira IVF center in Patna) says that obesity structurally impairs the female body and affects the female hormones which are liable for infertility. Alternatively, staying underweight could also influence fertility.


Being one of the best IVF hospitals in Patna, Indira IVF clinic in Patna is strictly a no smoking zone as consumption of cigarette and marijuana do have an effect on the female hormones. Hence, all IVF patients at the Indira IVF clinic in Patna are strictly advised to stay away from such substances.

Lifestyle diseases:

Ailments, for example, all forms of diabetes and diseases which affect the liver, kidney, and Thrombophilia, could all have a harmful effect on female fertility.

Advanced Age:

Note : An abnormal tendency to develop blood clots.
Stressing on the importance of age Dr.Anuja Singh (Centre head- Indira IVF clinic in Patna) says that it’s an accepted fact across the world that age and aging significantly reduce the female fertility.

Under conventional conditions, a woman is at its prime of fertility at around 26 years of age and the best fertile period of her life is between the age group of twenty-two to thirty-two years.

And by the age of fifty, once she stops to get her menstrual cycle, her eggs are just about nil. Her fertility has declined considerably. Conceiving a baby gets challenging because the woman’s aging. Hence, being one of the best  IVF centers in Patna, all the IVF patients are advised to go for infertility cure as soon as possible.


Exposure to radiation and chemotherapy for treating sickness in other places of her body or for treatment of diseases that refers to her reproductive system.

Genetic disorders:

Hereditary issues might also cause female infertility. These kinds of hereditary issues comprise of Mayer-Rokitansky- Küstner-Hauser Disorder and Turner’s.

Direct causes of Female Infertility

The direct causes of women reproductive dysfunction could be associated with each and every organ within the reproductive mechanism (the ovary, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, and the vagina). Sometimes, the problem might rest at the human brain (Hypothalamus-pituitary) that manages the female reproductive hormones.

Here the IVF specialists in Patna at Indira IVF diagnose all the factors leading to female infertility of an IVF patient:
Note : This condition causes the vagina and uterus to be underdeveloped or absent. Affected women usually do not have menstrual periods due to the absent uterus. A genetic defect in which affected women have only one X chromosome, causing developmental abnormalities and infertility.


A woman suffering from Hyperprolactinemia (high level of prolactin hormone) leading to no ovulation and hence no pregnancy.

Ovarian factors :

Premature ovarian syndrome

Whenever ovary tends to make an effort to grow eggs and also creates many without actually losing or ovulating by the end, a condition referred to as Polycystic Ovary builds up and pregnancy might not occur simply because there is absolutely no ovulation.

In a few unlucky ladies, their ovary might fail before its time to do this at a later period. It is referred to as a premature ovarian syndrome. Effective diagnosis by infertility specialists in Patna may lead to an early detection and cure of this syndrome at Indira IVF.

Blockage of Fallopian tube:

Fallopian tubes are needed for the transmitting of eggs and sperms. The tube is usually wherein a woman’s egg and man’s sperm meet up to get fertilization. When there is a Blocked Fallopian Tube in one area or perhaps each side, natural pregnancy is not possible. This blockage might be because of sexually transmitted infections (STI) for example Chlamydia and gonorrhea or any other bacteria.

It may suggest that all the time STI has to be intensely followed and cured when a person is to protect one’s fertility. STI might also result in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) which often results in tubal occlusion with or without pelvic abscess.

Regardless, tubal occlusion is probably not due to an infection since a consistent reverse movement of menstrual period blood (Endometriosis) may additionally result in a fallopian tube blockage. Therefore all the vital fertility checks are carried out by the infertility specialists in Patna to find out the real reason for fallopian tube blockage before starting any infertility treatment.

Uterus issues:

Note : Hyperprolactinaemia is the presence of abnormally high levels of prolactin in the blood.

The uterus or the organ commonly referred to as the womb might by itself be the reason for infertility.

From their source, it might be missing from developing or it could appear like dual wombs in the same person. In general a fully grown uterine fibroids might distort the womb. As a result, the fibroid might stop implantation of a recently fertilized egg.

Yet, in a few individuals, Asherman’s disorder which frequently results from tuberculosis contamination or following a poorly performed ‘D&C’ could decline entry to the sperms from getting to the eggs since Asherman’s disorder results in adhering of the womb linings together.

Issues related to the Cervix:

Additionally, the neck of the womb referred to as Cervix could become so hurt all through ‘D&C’ or by some other surgical procedure. So as to make cervical incompetence or stenosis (constricting) of the cervix. However, the normal secretions of mucus are probably not pleasurable or take nicely to the occurrence of sperms in some people (Anti-Sperm Antibodies). Hostile cervical mucus also may become a barrier in conceiving.

Vaginal issues:

Lastly, the woman’s vagina might be too narrow to allow access to the man’s penis or perhaps panic could hold her in the course of sexual intercourse that normal intercourse is unachievable.
