    What is ovulation, Sign of ovulation

    When everything else fails like natural conceiving, trying conceiving on most fertile days and still you think that the in IVF or in-vitro fertilization may be the only hope an option for you to opt, you should know some of these most common causes of infertility first which can help you make a choice and look in the right direction.

    1. Decline in the number of healthy eggs:

    The most important thing you should know that you are born with a fixed number of eggs that are needed to get pregnant. But the number of eggs declines and with that the health of those eggs also declines as your age decrease. At times some women don't know what is ovulation and how to track the signs of ovulation? This is the vital step in planning for the pregnancy to track your ovulation successfully. Even a fertile and healthy 30-year-old woman’s chances of conceiving reduce by 20% with each passing month. The bitter truth is that consumption of fertility drugs or medications, without any consultation with the doctor more decrease the number of eggs and fertility. (2)

    What you can do:Boost the health of your eggs and boost your fertility too. Help yourself stay healthy, maintain a good optimal weight and give up smoking and drinking before three months of conceiving. Quit smoking as soon as possible and limit your alcohol intake while planning for a baby.

    2. Your partner’s Health status:

    Most importantly your partner’s health plays a very important role in conception after yours is done. Both paternal and maternal health is responsible for the health eggs to the fertilized egg and eventually that of the fetus. At times some women don't know what is ovulation and how to track the signs of ovulation? This is the vital step in planning for the pregnancy to track your ovulation successfully. Male infertility is responsible for up to 1/3 of infertility cases. If your partner is overweight or obese, an alcoholic or a chain smoker, it could be directly affecting your chances of getting pregnant and may give rise to infertility. (3)

    What you can do: Talk to your partner and let him know all this in a gentle and firm manner. Convince him for a check-up or consultation, a medical physical examination, and semen analysis before planning for the baby might be necessary to check on your partner’s health status. Medications or IVF and intrauterine insemination IUI might be suggested depending on the problem.

    3. Reduced ovulation:

    Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which cause irregular menstrual cycles affects about 5 to 10 percent of women and PCOS one of the most common lifestyle reasons for women not to ovulate and get pregnant. At times some women don't know what is ovulation and how to track the signs of ovulation? This is the vital step in planning for the pregnancy to track your ovulation successfully. If you have irregular menstrual periods, unusual and increased growth of hair on the face, chin, chest, and stomach, these can be the symptoms of PCOS. (4)

    What you can do: Strictly maintain healthy body weight and go organic, this is one of the best ways to boost your fertility.

    4. Blocked fallopian tubes:

    Fallopian tubes play a vital role in pregnancy planning. When fallopian tubes are damaged or blocked, tubal factor, which is the reason for about 35 percent of infertility problems. Sexually transmitted diseases like Chlamydia; years later may contribute to tubal factor infertility. (5)

    Infertility, Ovulation

    What you can do:

    Make sure that the fallopian tubes are open, otherwise, there’s no way for sperm and eggs for fusion. The doctor can screen tubal factor with an x-ray called HSG and if the fallopian tubes are blocked, IVF is the best treatment to go with.

    You will be astonished to know that even an improper sleep pattern can impact male fertility in a negative way. Get charge of your fertility by adopting effective home remedies and natural ways to improve male fertility and hence sperm count.

    We must eat lot of iron rich foods like green leafy vegetables, rajma, beans, grams to regulate ovulation. We can also try clean meat, fish, eggs, black beans, lentils, broccoli, cherries, red grapes and raspberries. Infertility in women can be caused by poor diet also.

    I don't experience ovulation symptoms at all. I think I will get myself diagnosed for PCOS. My periods are regular but I am not getting pregnant. I have also started to use Ela app for tracking my cycles. Hope diagnostic tests and tracking will help me a lot.
