Can you explain more about conception and the factors affecting the same?

on the production of healthy sperm by the man and healthy eggs by the woman Normal unblocked fallopian tubes that allow the sperm to reach the egg around ovulation (when the egg is released) the sperm's ability to fertilize the egg when they meet the ability of the fertilized egg (embryo) to implant in the woman's uterus; and optimum embryo quality finally, for the pregnancy to continue to full term (9 months), the embryo and fetus must be healthy and the woman's health and hormonal environment adequate for its development When just one of these factors is impaired, infertility can result.

What are Primary Infertility and Secondary Infertility?

Primary infertility is the condition observed in a couple who have never had a child. On the other hand, Secondary infertility implies the failure to conceive following a previous pregnancy.

Who is to be blamed for infertility - Male or Female?

It's an idiocy to consider that infertility is just a female disease. In rough terms, about one-third of infertility cases can be attributed to male factors, and about one-third to factors that affect women. For the remaining one-third of infertile couples, infertility is caused by a combination of problems in both partners or, in about 10 - 15 percent of cases, is unexplained.

What are the most common male infertility factors?

The most common male infertility factors include azoospermia (no sperm cells are produced) and oligozoospermia (few sperm cells are produced). In some men the outflow tract for sperm passage may be blocked due to congenital absence or secondary to surgery / trauma and this may cause azoospermia. Sometimes, sperm cells are malformed or they die before they can reach the egg. In rare cases, infertility in men is caused by a genetic disease such as cystic fibrosis or a chromosomal abnormality.

What are the most common female infertility factors?

The most common female infertility factor is an ovulation disorder (problems with egg release). Other causes of female infertility include blocked fallopian tubes, which can occur when a woman has had pelvic inflammatory disease, surgery on her abdomen or pelvis and endometriosis (a condition causing adhesions, scarring and cysts). Congenital abnormalities (birth defects) involving the structure of the uterus and uterine fibroids are associated with repeated miscarriages.

Do Insurance Plans Cover Infertility Treatment?

No. Fertility treatments such as IVF, ICSI etc are not covered by insurance companies. However, certain baseline pre-treatment surgeries for associated co-morbidities might be covered, e.g. surgery for pelvic pain, adhesions associated with endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease which also subsequently result in infertility.
