Factors That Can Inhibit Pregnancy?
Hello! I have been married for 13 months. Having a routine. Menstruation regularly. Transvaginal ultrasound is normal. Already checked HSG results of both patent tuba. But have not managed to get pregnant either. Is it possible that sperm can not enter the cervix? Is the structure of the vagina and cervix can obstruct the path of sperm? Thank you
Hello Yunuta, thank you for asking.
Pregnancy is one thing that is expected by newly married couples. A person or partner can be considered experiencing infertility if, for a period of more than a year, by having sex actively and routinely, but fertilization has not yet succeeded. The cause is certainly diverse. The results of your reproductive tract examination show good results, but it must be remembered that in order for a pregnancy to occur, both the wife and husband must have good reproductive system conditions.
It's good for your husband to also undergo a thorough examination. Requirements for fertilization are the presence of mature ovum cells and healthy sperm cells and of sufficient quantity. There is nothing wrong with your husband doing a test to assess the condition of sperm, based on the shape, number, activity, and maturity of sperm. The position of the vagina that turns back or called retrovagina can indeed be difficult for fertilization. But that does not mean fertilization is not possible. Sperm cells must also be active enough to reach the cervix and fallopian tubes. Inactive sperm cells will have difficulty reaching ovum cells.
There are a number of possible things that can prevent pregnancy, including:
Hormonal imbalance, both reproductive hormones or other hormones that regulate the body's metabolic functions. Body weight that is not ideal, for example, too fat or too thin. Nutrition is not optimal. Psychic stress. Accompanying diseases. TORCH infection. You can discuss this further with the treating doctor. The doctor may need additional tests such as sperm examination, blood tests to look for hormonal abnormalities, examination of TORCH infections, and so on. You and your husband can do a number of things that might increase your chances of getting pregnant, including:
Perform routine sexual intercourse 2-3 times a week Consumption of optimal nutrition such as vegetables and fruit, seeds, nuts, lean meat and fish Avoid smoking and alcohol Manage psychic stress Moderate exercise routine, such as brisk walking or jogging 3- 5 times a week Maintain body weight so that it is within the range of normal body mass index. Only consume drugs as directed by your doctor. Thus our brief information, hopefully can help find your solution. Regards.
