Some couples may be unable to conceive despite regular unprotected sexual activity for over a year. This condition is called subfertility or infertility. The causes may be related to either the male or female partners. The causes in the female include hormonal disturbances and anovulation like in PCOS, endometriosis, tubal disease, uterine problems and problems related to sex. In the male, the causes include reduced or absent sperm count, motility, increase in abnormal forms of the sperm as well as problems relating to erection and ejaculation.
The condition needs a thorough evaluation to understand the cause. Sometimes, there may not be any apparent cause found.
Dr. Aruna Muralidhar regularly treats couples with sexual health problems and infertility. Thorough evaluation with blood tests, semen analysis and other relevant tests will be done. The treatment starts with simple natural options and then further advanced methods may be used such as OI (ovulation induction) and IUI (intrauterine insemination).
