Women with irregular menstrual are in fact associated with their erratic ovulation cycle or with no ovulation. However, there are among women who experience menstruation problem but can be pregnant spontaneously without any medical help.
Usually, the presumptions of infertility problem to some women happen when she have married and have done ordinary sexual relationship (i.e. at least four or four times a week without any protection – condom etc) for a year but still have not become pregnant.
Fertility treatment should be done after the couple have done several medical investigations which are:
- HSA (husband seminal analysis) – to view the quality and quantity of the husband microscopically.
- Woman Hormonal Test – FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), LH (luthenising hormone) and prolactin test. The balance of FSH:LH hormone indicates whether there were stimulation or no ovulation for ovary. High prolactin’s level indicates stimulation from pituitary which could cause disorganized/irregular menstrual cycle.
- Progesterone hormone, this hormone will be secreted on day 21 which indicate either the woman had produced an ovum.
- Sometime thyroid hormone test & MGTT (mode glucose tolerance test) were also done to ensure no thyroid or diabetes problem.
Fertility drug should not be given to the patient without follow-up treatment since during the 10th to 12th day of the menstrual cycle, the ovary should be view for any stimulation. The usage of ‘clomiphene’ drug type could cause hyper-stimulation that could cause complications to the patient.
The improper usage of clomiphene for long durations also would heighten the ovary cancer risk. Therefore, it is advised to women who have just been married that to firstly try to conceive normally. If there were early pregnancy signs such as nausea, vomiting, breast pain, see your doctor to take the UPT – urine pregnancy test and have an ultrasound scan.Sponsored links:
