Anovulation - Causes of Female Infertility

This is a menstrual disorder which can affect female fertility. It is a condition in which no egg is released during the normal monthly cycle so ovulation cannot take place. This makes it extremely difficult to conceive.

It can be caused by a reproductive system disorder such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (POS), a hormonal imbalance, severe weight loss or a thyroid problem.

Other causes include excessive exercise, stress, frequent travel, eating disorders and drug use.

A failure to ovulate can cause irregular or no periods, an irregular basal temperature and decreased Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS).

Treatment options include surgical (removal of parts of the ovaries), medication and lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and reducing stress levels.
