Ovulation Problems

Ovulatory Disorders and Fertility Issues

The inability or failure to ovulate is the most common infertility issue among women who are trying to conceive. Typically, the cause of ovulatory-related fertility issues are hormonally-related, but they may also be impacted by health issues. In many cases, there are successful treatments for ovulatory disorders and there are both fertility supplements that are designed to promote hormonal balance, as well as prescription fertility drugs like clomid that are designed to induce ovulation. With recent treatments and innovations, there is a strong chance that you will be able to overcome many fertility obstacles, including anovulation (or the failure to ovulate).

Hormonal balance is one key variable in a healthy menstrual cycle and regular ovulation. The dramatic interplay of reproductive hormones is quite complicated. Hormones relay and transmit messages - in effect they "communicate" with each other to maintain balance as you move through your monthly cycle, from the follicular phase (which is dominated by estrogen), to ovulation, through the luteal phase (which is dominated by progesterone), and to menstruation.

Many reproductive hormones come into play during your menstrual cycle - including FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (Luteinizing hormone). The production of these hormones is triggered by GnRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone), as well as by ambient levels of estrogen and progesterone circulating in your system at any given time.

Ovulatory dysfunction, anovulation is typically caused by imbalances among these dominant hormones, but other physiological (for example, issues with the ovaries) and basic lifestyle and health variables may contribute as well. Diet is key to a healthy menstrual cycle, and simply being overweight or underweight can cause ovulatory disorders.

For minor imbalances or cycle irregularity, fertility supplements like FertilAid or Fertility Blend may prove beneficial. For more serious issues (including the failure to ovulate at all) may require fertility drugs like clomid, which are designed to induce ovulation. The type of fertility drug or treatment you may need will depend on the specific cause of a disorder.
