Fertility Issues
 
The number one cause of Infertility in women is thought to be a result of failure to ovulate. However, there are a number of things that can lead to ovulation problems. The most common of these causes is hormonal imbalance. Since hormones are responsible for the occurance of ovulation, any disruption that affects these hormone will in turn affect ovulation.
  •  Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is one of the major disruptors of hormonal balance and thus disrupts ovulation.
  • Another reason for hormonal imbalance is a malfunction of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is responsible for stimulating the pituitary gland to send hormonal signals to the ovaries to initiate egg maturation. If this process is disrupted, then immature eggs will be the end result.
  • Another reason for anovulation (failure to ovulate) is a malfunction of the pituitary gland. If this occurs then the hormonal signals will not be sent to induce ovulation.
 
Any physical damage to the ovaries can lead to anovulation. Damage could have resulted from surgeries, multiple cysts on the ovary, and also infections of the ovary.
