permission to ask, r nAuntie experienced primary amenorrhea when checking that her uterus did not develop but really wanted to have children. Can IVF program succeed in this condition? Or are there other options to be able to get offspring? Thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Primary amenorrhea is a disorder in which a woman does not experience menstruation at the age of 15 years or more, despite having experienced secondary sexual development that is normal. This condition can arise due to several reasons, namely:
Ovarian failure (ovary)
Disorders of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord)
Disorders of the pituitary gland (pituitary gland, which is responsible for producing hormones to regulate menstruation)
Disorders of the reproductive organs, for example due to not developing the uterus, cervix, or vagina, vaginal obstrusion (for example due to hymen imperforata)
Idiopathic (it is not clear why), and so on
In patients with primary amenorrhea caused by an undeveloped uterus, pregnancy is certainly impossible, even with the IVF program. Because, to be able to develop, the fetus must be in the womb.
So, how can women whose uterus do not develop have offspring? There are several alternatives that can be done, including:
That is a way in which sperm and egg cells are brought together outside the uterus - then, after fertilization, the results of fertilization are transferred to the womb of another woman to be developed for quite a month - after birth, the baby is returned to the partner who has the sperm cell and the egg cell
It can only be done if the woman, even though her uterus is not developing, has no problems with ovarian function and egg production
In Indonesia, this method is still not generally done, because it is considered to violate the elements of ethics and norms that apply in society
This method is far wiser, besides being able to reduce the number of abandoned children, it also does not have to violate the ethics and norms prevailing in society
Family relationships do not have to be based solely on blood flow, but love and responsibility are paramount
