Types of Infertility
Infertility types are categorized based on the presence or absence of the elements listed above.
Tubal Factor: The woman’s Fallopian tubes are either blocked or adhered to tissue around it. This makes it impossible for the sperm to fertilize the egg or for the fertilized egg to migrate to the uterus. Pregnancy rarely occurs and if does, chances of having an ectopic pregnancy are high.
Male factor: The sperm quality may be low. The sperm may be unable to fertilize the egg or have a short lifespan in the female reproductive tract.
Endometriosis: A condition where the tissue that should be found only in the uterus , is found in other areas such as in the abdomen, surface of the ovaries, sometimes even adhered to the intestines. By causing severe adhesions in the Fallopian tubes, the ovaries or the uterus, or in some cases immunological problems, endometriosis might lead to infertility.
