How is female infertility treated?
Approach to treatment
The approach at our female infertility treatment centre is
strictly based upon the merit of the diagnostic reports. Our
experts are highly qualified and know how to resist the
temptation of jumping on to any conclusion. They focus on
the medical evidences and start the treatment procedure
basis the diagnosed condition that causes infertility in
women. Below are some major conditions that relate to
infertility in women and the approach to treatment for the
In normal circumstances, fallopian tubes pick up the
released egg and help to move it towards uterus. Damage to
the tubes may impede transport of egg. Tubal blockage can
result from any infection which travels up to the tube from
neck of womb, or uterus or from peritoneal cavity. If fluid
collects in the fallopian tube it may be toxic to embryo.
Hence if fluid seen in the tube, tube is clipped or removed.
Such problems can occur as result of hormonal imbalance. The
imbalance may arise either within the brain, pituitary gland
or in the ovaries. Other associated causes are excessive
weight loss, premature ovarian failure, excessive prolactin
and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Occasionally fibroids found within the cavity of womb and
muscle of womb may cause difficulty in embryo growth. Thus
fibroids are removed before starting the treatment.
Age and Fertility:
In any women, advancing age mars the prospect of getting
pregnant. Further the chances of conceiving and seeing
through the pregnancy period successfully also decrease
rapidly between 35 and 40 years of age. In addition, the
chances of miscarriage double as the age advances.
Miscarriage can also be due to abnormal chromosomes in the
fertilized egg and the same is attributed to the advancing
age of the patient.
Unexplained Infertility refers to cases in which the
standard infertility testing has not found a cause for the
failure to conceive. Unexplained infertility affects 15% of
infertile couples. It tends to be a diagnosis based on
exclusion. You may be said to have unexplained fertility if
you cannot conceive in spite of the following:
Open and healthy fallopian tubes
No signs of pelvic adhesions
No presence of endometriosis
The partner is healthy and fertile
What is the normal anatomy involved with male fertility
The sperms have to travel a long route before emission. The
Vas Deferens, which carries the semen containing the sperms
after production in the testes, traverses from the bottom of
the scrotum to the top. The Vas Deferens then curves towards
the penis from either side. In a common passage in the
penis, semen is ejaculated from the tip.
How much a male is responsible for infertility of the
It is found 40% of the infertility cases are due to male
factor defects. Diagnosis and treatment of the problems
related to male factor is one of the true success stories in
the field of reproductive medicine and male infertility
treatment. Male fertility screening is done through semen
analysis at our clinic.
What is Sperm Disorder?
Sperm disorders make up for one of the main causes of male
infertility. Men who are facing infertility related problems
are most of the time diagnosed with sperm disorders. The
type of disorder can vary from their low count to their
agility. Further, the problems related to morphology of the
sperms are also been known to be one of the other main
reasons for infertility in men.

For conditions related to shape of the sperm cells/
morphology of the sperm cells,
techniques are used to
concentrate sperms that are normal and further the same
are used for intrauterine insemination.
For cases where sperm cell count is low as per the set
standards and the motility of the
cells and their morphology
is also in question; for such cases, IVF with ICSI
are used in tandem
However for cases where the low sperm count is due to
temporary causes and could be
easily treated, our experts at
Ridge IVF focus on inducing treatment for male infertility
along with advising some of the following lifestyle changes.
1. Keep away from smoking
