Answer from: James Nicopoullos, MD
In about 20% of cases, there’s some issue with ovulation that is impacting fertility. Commonest of which is polycystic ovaries but a number of other factors that come in there. In about 15 % of cases there’s a tubal factor – block tubes causing the problem and then perhaps 5 to 10% of other cases, there’s some other gynaecological problem like endometriosis that may be impacted on the outcome.
What are general, main causes of female infertility and what percentage of women it may impact on?
Some conditions or medical history can lead to the conclusion that without any doubt, women are infertilie. The other factors like obesity, age, hormonal imbalance, endometriosis, fibroids ato name the most common ones, can increase a risk of infertility. Some of them need medical intervention like surgery and medication, others require from patients to change lifestyle.
