When it comes to pregnancy, it should be said that it is one of the most amazing moments in a woman's life (and her partner's), but it is also a period that requires a lot of caution and care; not to mention the fact that many women are having trouble getting pregnant in the first place.
Pregnancy lasts for about 9 months and it starts with fertilization, which includes merging of a spermatozoid and woman's egg cell. This is a process that requires certain conditions to be met. For example, all organs involved have to function properly. Ovaries produce egg cells once a month and those cells leave ovary and enter the tube uterine 14 days after the last period. So, if there is any problem with ovaries, this will not happen, or the produced egg will not be functional. A common problem that affects ovaries is cysts that might induce serious complications if not treated in time. Next problem that might stop the pregnancy is infection. Typically, bacterial infections can create certain problems with nothing more than its presence. If accumulated in high amounts, it can easily block the passage within the tube uterine and prevent egg cell or spermatozoid from traveling normally. When it comes to uterine, there are certain malformations that might prevent spermatozoid from entering the tube uterine or if fertilization happens, it might prevent the implant from settling in the proper location in uterus. Also, implant might enter the wrong location and in that moment, the woman's body reacts as if it is a foreign object.
When it comes to men, there can be several problems regarded the quality and the number of spermatozoids. Sometimes, spermatozoids are simply not fast enough and do not reach tube uterine in time, or do not reach it at all. And when they reach the egg cell, they have to be strong enough to burst through the egg's membrane.
Having trouble getting pregnant? It is obvious there are so many things that can affect the fertility of man and woman so a detailed medical examination must be done. Only with lab test results (blood work, analysis of spermatozoids, ultrasound, etc.) the picture will become much clearer and a possible problematic factor might be revealed. Artificial fertilization is one of the options that should be considered if there is no way for a woman to become pregnant or sustain pregnancy naturally.
