Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common female hormone imbalance that causes cysts to grow on the ovaries and ovulatory disorders meaning that ovulation may occur irregularly or not at all, making it difficult to get pregnant naturally.

Irregular Menstrual Cycle: Some women have hormonal imbalances that cause them to skip or have irregular periods, affecting their fertility.

Diminished Ovarian Reserve: The ovarian reserve refers to the capacity of ovaries to produce eggs that are capable of becoming fertilized. The ovarian reserve naturally begins to decline at the age of 35 but may decline earlier due to a number of factors.

Recurrent Miscarriage: Miscarriages may occur because of a range of factors, many that are combatable. Most can be attributed to chromosomal abnormalities, hormonal, anatomic or immunological factors.

Endometriosis is the growth of endometrial tissues in places other than the lining of uterus. Endometriosis affects a females’ fertility by changing the shape and interrupting the function of the ovaries, fallopian tubes or uterus.

Secondary Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive another (not necessarily second) child successfully and naturally.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes: The fallopian tube is where fertilization of the egg occurs. If both or one of the tubes are blocked, fertilization is prevented.

Fibroids, Polyps and Adenomyosis are different types of growths that may grow on the reproductive organs of a woman and negatively effect fertility.
