What Irregularities In Menstrual Cycle Could Mean For FertilityWhat Irregularities In Menstrual Cycle Could Mean For Fertility

A woman going through an irregular menstrual cycle is nothing new. It is in fact quite common and with changing lifestyles, more women are faced with an irregular menstrual cycle on a regular basis. However, when it comes to fertility and having the ability to conceive a child, this same irregularity can take the shape of a more serious health condition and come in the way of conception. Some of the dangers or sources of irregular menstrual cycle that can also cause infertility are as follows:

1) PCOS – Also known as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, PCOS is a condition where a woman develops a number of cysts in their ovaries. As a result of these cysts, there is hormonal imbalance in the woman’s body leading to problems in the menstrual cycle. While having Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is not much of a worry for women not trying to conceive a child, PCOS does become a problem for pregnancy. The very fact that it makes your menstrual cycle irregular means that you will have difficulties for conception. The reproductive system is not able to achieve an optimum ovulation that is required during intercourse for pregnancy. It is recommended that women trying to get pregnant get a test done to check if they are affected by Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and then get appropriate treatment done as soon as possible.

2) Uterine Fibroids – Sometimes, instead of facing irregularities in terms of the dates of the month for menstrual cycles, some women end up facing other kind of abnormalities such as extremely heavy bleeding or having a longer than usual periods. If your periods end up lasting for a week or more, then there are possibilities of uterine fibroids in your body. Basically sometimes there are growths in fibroids in the uterus that can create problems for the reproductive system and irregular menstrual cycle is one of the symptoms of this condition. Again just like PCOS, this condition can be common and not harmful for most women. However, if the fibroids present in the uterus start to grow, then they end up altering the shape of the organs around them leading to infertility. Uterine fibroids that have grown bigger than their usual size need to be shrunk as soon as possible. In very rare occasions, these fibroids start growing so large that they become the size of a ball or even larger. Needless to say when this happens, you are not only faced with infertility but other serious health conditions as well.

3) Blocked fallopian tubes – It is possible for a woman to have blocked fallopian tubes but not experience any irregularities in their menstrual cycle. It is only in some rare forms of this health condition that women may face irregular periods. However, of all the conditions mentioned so far, blocked fallopian tubes are the most concerning for women trying to get pregnant. Fallopian tubes are very thin tubes on either end of the uterus and have the important function of carrying eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. The same tubes are also required for sperm to travel during intercourse for mating with the egg. Any kind of blockage or damage to this tube will directly affect a woman’s ability to conceive a child. Blocked fallopian tubes should be treated with a lot of care and must be taken care of as soon as possible to enable conception.
