Degrees of infertility
Female infertility is classified into primary and secondary.
Primary female infertility (infertility 1) means a disease of women who were not pregnant before provided they have led a regular sexual life with a healthy man without use of contraceptives for one year.
Secondary female infertility (infertility 2) means female impossibility to become pregnant though they have been pregnant earlier irrespective of the outcome of such pregnancy.
Female infertility is due to congenital anomaly (malposition or underdeveloped internal genital system) or results from diseases of genitals (tumour, inflammation, etc.).
Causes of female infertility:
Endocrine infertility (30-40%). Endocrine infertility symptoms are: disorder of the ovum maturation process and absence of ovulation. The causes may e: damage of the reproductive system at various levels (hypothalamus-hypophysis-ovaries) and dysfunction of the other endocrine glands (adrenals, thyroid) that result in hormonal changes in the genital sphere.
Tubal obstruction frequently occurs with women who had inflammation illnesses (gonorrhea, chlamidiosis, salpingitis, endometritis, etc.), operations on the pelvic organs, abortions, etc. Adhesive processes that caused tubal infertility do not allow an ovum to reach the uterine and get normally fertilized there, which inevitably lead to female infertility.
Infertility related to gynecological pathology: endometriothis, uterine fibroid and endometrium pathology. Inflammatory diseases of genital organs are the main causes of female infertility. Sexually transmitted infectious diseases, particularly if they develop asymptomatically and pass into a chronic phase, lead to female infertility. Female infertility can also be caused by such infections as chlamidiosis, gonorrhea, etc.
Immunologic infertility is linked to the formation of anti-spermal antibodies in the female organism that destroy spermatozoids.
Idiopathic infertility or infertility of unclear genesis. In about 5% of couples we fail to find anatomic and functional defects of the reproductive system with the use of accessible diagnostic methods.
Absolute sterility. Female sterility may be absolute when due to various reasons a female either has no genitals at all (uterine, ovaries) or has gross congenital abnormalities. Practically one half of sterile women have a combination of several factors that lead to infertility.
