The Struggles of Infertility: 10 Reasons Why You May Be Diagnosed with Infertility
Becoming pregnant is far more difficult than people realize. In a population of couples, around 10-18% of them will have difficulties in either becoming pregnant or having a birth without complications. For these couples, there is always a chance to have a surrogate mother carry your baby for you. Not only does this increase the chances of having a healthy pregnancy, but for intended parents who have been diagnosed with infertility, then it could be the only means of having a child of their own.
Here are 10 different reasons as to why you might be diagnosed with infertility.
#1 – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
For women who suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS, becoming pregnant can be difficult if not impossible. PCOS disrupts the ovulation process. This makes it impossible for an egg to fall through the fallopian tube, so it can be fertilized by sperm. Some women choose to undergo IVF in order to have a baby, however, this could possibly be unwise. Women with PCOS can overstimulate their ovaries which can have poor consequences for her body as well as the resulting baby.
Women who suffer from PCOS can find relief by using a surrogate agency. A surrogate can carry the baby for them and ensure that it remains safe throughout its development.
#2 – Hypothalamic Dysfunction
Another reason behind infertility is hypothalamic dysfunction. This condition is when the hypothalamus no longer functions as well as it used to. Because the hypothalamus controls the pituitary gland, this can have a direct result on whether or not a woman or man can have a baby. The pituitary gland controls both the ovaries and the testes. Without the pituitary gland able to work–thanks to the malfunctioning hypothalamus–the body can’t produce the required eggs in the ovaries and sperm for reproduction.
However, men and women who suffer from hypothalamic dysfunction can find a solution with a surrogate agency. Together with a surrogate, they can have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
#3 – Premature Ovarian Failure
Some intended parents might also be suffering from premature ovarian failure. After puberty and before menopause, women are typically quite fertile. However, premature ovarian failure describes a situation in which menopause has occurred early. The ovaries are no longer able to fall from the fallopian tube or they have all died already. This condition occurs before a woman turns 40.
Like the other conditions, intended parents can find relief with a surrogacy agency. Each of their surrogates is screened to ensure that their bodies are healthy enough for pregnancy.
#4 – Hyperprolactinemia
Another reason for infertility could be due to hyperprolactinemia. This condition occurs when an individual has too much prolactin in the blood. It’s primarily produced after the birth of a child to help a woman produce breast milk. However, it can be overproduced and affect the amounts of estrogen and testosterone in the blood. Too much of the hormone can cause other hormone levels to decrease and make fertility difficult. This occurs because of a problem with the pituitary gland.
Surrogacy can help. Whether the condition just started or you’ve been struggling with it for some time, our California surrogate agency can help you. We can match you with a surrogate who can provide a healthy pregnancy for your baby.
#5 – Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
Sometimes women may not be aware that they have PID. The symptoms may be so mild that they just attribute it with indigestion or menstruation. However, serious damage could be happening to their reproductive organs. PID, or pelvic inflammatory disease, is caused by having sexual intercourse with someone who suffers from Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. While the disease, itself, can be cured, many women may suffer from scar tissue that can make becoming pregnant impossible.
Because the process of surrogacy utilizes IVF, you’re able to use a surrogacy agency to have your baby. If you suffer from PID, being a parent is still a possibility through a surrogate.
#6 – Surgery
Sometimes certain surgeries can also infertility. Whether it’s cosmetic or for a health problem, certain surgeries that are performed on your reproductive organs can cause them to scar. When you have scar tissue, it can be extremely difficult for the ovaries to move eggs past the tissue. That’s if the scar tissue even allows the production of eggs, depending on where the scarring occurred.
Yet the process of surrogacy can also help you. Using a surrogate can completely bypass the problems that the surgery made. Our surrogates are healthy enough to carry a baby to full term.
#7 – Pelvic Tuberculosis
While this condition is primarily prevalent in developing countries, it’s starting to increase in the United States. One of the biggest problems with the condition is that it can be silent for 10 to 20 years. You may not even notice the symptoms. PT can cause ovarian dysfunction and tubal inflammation which can make pregnancy impossible.
#8 – Endometriosis
One of the biggest causes of infertility is endometriosis. This condition comes with various symptoms and may be mild or severe. It occurs when endometrial tissue forms outside of the uterus. This tissue can cause scarring or can actually block the fallopian tube. This prevents eggs from being able to drop down and fertilize with sperm.
Because endometriosis can also sometimes make pregnancy difficult, it’s best to use surrogacy to carry your baby. If you have endometriosis, our California surrogate agency can help ensure that you give your baby the best chance at growing strong and healthy.
#9 – Tumors
Some tumors can also cause infertility. Tumors that grow in the pituitary gland, for example, can cause it to malfunction. This might then disrupt the hormones that make fertility possible. Other tumors may actually block the fallopian tube. This might make dropping an egg impossible. Or the tumors might block sperm from accessing the egg.
Whether you have cancer, a tumor, or believe that you may have either, then you should use a surrogate. Not only is it safer for you, but it’s also safer for your baby.
#10 – Cancer Treatments
Some cancer treatments might also be responsible for infertility. When you undergo surgery, the surgeon might need to remove critical parts that play a role in reproduction and pregnancy. Surgery might also cause scarring that can further make conceiving difficult.
Treatments like radiation or chemotherapy can also have a negative impact on pregnancy. Radiation, even if not directly given to ovaries, can still be absorbed by them. This can damage them to the point that they can’t be fertilized by sperm cells. The same goes for chemotherapy. Except chemotherapy focuses on killings cells that are growing too rapidly. For pregnant women, this treatment can kill the baby.
