The process of egg maturation in the ovary (ovary) takes place continuously under the influence of various reproductive hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH, and GnRH. Normally, when they are ripe and ready to be fertilized, these eggs will be 18 to 25 mm in size. However, there are some women who are interrupted by the process of maturation of their eggs, causing eggs to form very much, but are small in size so that it is difficult to ovulate (rupture of an egg which has matured from the ovaries), let alone fertilized by sperm cells. This condition often makes pregnancy difficult.
Not always, small egg cells occur in women who are overweight and have menstrual bleeding. Various factors can affect this, including: genetic (hereditary), resistance to the hormone insulin, hormonal balance disorders. Frequently, this small egg size occurs in people with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), thyroid gland disorders, or experiencing premature ovarian failure.
In addition to the poor quality of the egg, various other conditions can also cause a woman to have difficulty having a baby, for example damage to the fallopian tubes (ovarian tract), post-operative scar tissue formation, cervical mucus disorders, myomas, endometriosis, side effects medicine, unhealthy lifestyles, and so on. To detect other possible causes, the doctor recommends that you undergo a HSG (hysterosalfingography) examination, which is commonly done to explore the condition of the fallopian tubes and uterus in more detail.
It's best if you consult directly with an obstetrician about the steps that you both have to take to overcome your condition. In order to improve the quality of your eggs, your doctor may direct you to change your lifestyle to be healthier (including by eating patterns, regular exercise, good stress control, and adequate rest), undergoing hormonal therapy, or other medical procedures . Also invite your husband to check himself so that it can be known the possibility of fertility obstacles he experienced. Furthermore, with regard to planning a pregnancy that you and your partner are living with, your doctor may also recommend you an appropriate pregnancy program.
Hope this helps ...
