Reasons why it's hard for women to get pregnant

Most of us think that pregnancy is something that happens naturally and easily. However, there are many unexpected reasons that will hinder this process, making it harder for women to get pregnant. Here are the most common causes of pregnancy difficulties.

1. You are suffering from a medical condition

Difficulty in pregnancy is a symptom of an underlying pathology, not a diagnosis. Therefore, in order to treat infertility and maximize the chances of getting pregnant, you need a general examination, excluding the possibility of gynecologic diseases or diseases in other agencies that affect fertility.

Among them, the highlights are the following diseases:

1.1. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome occurs in 10% of women. Disorders on this reproduction system cause the body instead of producing follicle-stimulating hormones that over-produce androgens, which disrupt ovulation, hindering ovulation and impairing egg quality. This indirectly makes conception unsuccessful.

Moreover, women with polycystic ovary syndrome also have irregular menstruation, prone to overweight, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

1.2. Disorders of the immune system

Auto immunity disorders will cause the body to attack its own cells such as rheumatoid arthritis diseases, systemic lupus erythematitis… At this time, disorders of the immune system cause an excessive inflammatory response, which destroys sperm as well as newly fertilized embryos. As a result, the woman can not get pregnant naturally.

1.3. Uterine fibroids and uterine polyps

Uterine fibroids and uterine polyps are benign growths of tissues in the uterus. Symptoms that the person may experience are menstruation, prolonged periods and menstruation. In it, if the neo neolyclithic mass is too abnormal on the mucosa will interfere with the ability to adhesion and nest of newly fertilized eggs.

Not only that, even if the embryo has nested and developed to a certain extent, these diseases can still increase the risk of miscarriage, premature birth or recurrent still life. This makes the woman never successfully pregnant.

1.4. Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common condition that causes the glandular tissue of the uterus to grow outside the uterus, as on the ovaries or ovulation tubes or into the mesenteritis layer. Typical manifestations suggesting this pathology are severe menstruation, irregular menstruation in terms of cycles and the amount of menstrual blood.

Endometriosis is a common condition that causes the glandular tissue of the uterus to grow outside the uterus

Because endometriosis has different symptoms in terms of degree and location of stray tissue, which is not eligible for nesting eggs, some women do not even know they are sick until they go to the doctor because it is difficult to get pregnant. On the other hand, in severe cases, it is the stray tissue that dysfunctions the ovaries or ovulation ducts, preventing the egg from meeting the sperm.

1.5. Disorders of the end noisy system

The end hormone system with hormones helps control the function of the bodies in the body. In particular, difficulty conceiving can also be caused by the body not producing enough hormones related to the process of pregnancy, impairing the quality of eggs, stagnating ovulation as well as weakening the ability of the embryo to implant in the endo will. Some common diseases that cause disorders of the endhythmic system of reproduction are thyroiddysfunction , apothyroidglands , diabetes mellitus.

1.6. Sexually transmitted diseases

Some sexually transmitted diseases can cause damage to the uterus, ovulation ducts, limiting fertility. Infection also prevents the ability of the embryo to implant in the uterus, causing an early miscarriage.

1.7. Cancer

Cancer diseases in general can affect almost any activity inside the body, including fertility.

Moreover, when conducting treatment, radiotherapy or chemotherapy will make the woman more susceptible to continuous miscarriages, even female infertility, as well as difficulty ensuring that it does not affect the fetus. Accordingly, the risk of giving birth to a child with birth defects is very high.

2. You are too anxious about having to get pregnant

Stress is always a huge barrier during pregnancy. When you have to worry, frequent stress, elevated levels of cortisol in the blood, negatively impact ovulation and fertility.

Precisely because pregnancy is really an "event" that cannot be planned, so be slow, calm, relax as much as possible, do not rush. Pregnancy will be a miracle that happens unexpectedly. Even a normal, healthy couple still takes about a year to become pregnant. And if at least six months have passed without regular menstruation or you are not sure if you have ovulated, you should seek help from your obstetrician and gynecologist early.

3. You have chosen the wrong time of intersym

Some women think that the more sex, the easier it is to get pregnant but the truth is not so. If you do, you may accidentally deplete your partner's sperm population.

Besides, not understanding the moment of ovulation is a common mistake. For most women, ovulation occurs mid-cycle but that is true if the menstrual cycle is between 28 and 32 days.

It is precisely the female who ovulates at the time of 14 days before the start of the cycle. For example, if you have a cycle of 24 days, ovulation will be on the 10th day. This rule can be confusing if you have irregular cycles or can not remember when you have menstruation for the last time.

Another common mistake is not to calculate the actual first day of the cycle. It's the first day you see the blood going out, not the next day or the day before.

Once the exact moment of ovulation is determined, you only need to have intersed every day during the most conceivable period, i.e. around the time of ovulation. The rest of the day, the cycle should stretch out and mostly relax together.

4. You clean the enclosure too rough

Although vaginal dosing is a fairly common way of hygiene for women, it is not at all a good idea when you are looking to get pregnant. This is because products used for dosing can act as a spermicide. Moreover, these chemicals alter the vaginal pH, disrupting the natural environment of the vagina and also your uterus, making adhesion of the embryo also difficult.

5. You do the wrong position

Although not proven, the fact is that after inter intersing, if you lie straight in bed, advanced hips, in about 20 to 30 minutes can increase fertility by up to 80%. In other words, after completing the "love", do not be too hasty to sit up, run into the bathroom or do a wash or even want to perform a dance. Instead, refrain, at least a little.

6. You lead an unhealthy lifestyle

Difficulty in pregnancy

Tobacco, beer, alcohol,.. can negatively affect your fertility

Why do you keep your drinking, smoking or taking stimulant habits while you want to get pregnant? It is these causes that negatively affect your fertility. Not only that, they also affect the development of the fetus, especially in the first trimead, prone to causing birth defects.

Accordingly, it is necessary to give up all bad habits and act as if you are already pregnant. Having a healthy lifestyle, eating enough nutrients and getting enough sleep, practicing sports not only helps you have good health, but is also ready for childbirth, motherhood.

Pregnancy is a magical journey that every woman always looks forward to. Mastering the above will make the pregnancy process of women smoother.

You will be examined for fertility, sexuality, screening for sexually transmitted diseases, screening for genetic diseases.
