Cervical Mucous

Some women have cervical mucus hostility with antibodies within the mucus which immobilise the sperm and stop their forward progression into the uterus.

This is a relatively rare cause of infertility.

This can be addressed by Artificial Insemination with the husband’s sperm (AIH) bypassing the cervix or In Vitro Fertilisation and Embryo Transfer (IVF & ET).

In our society 5-10% of couples have varying degrees of infertility.

Common Causes of Infertility

When do I seek advice about our fertility?

If any of these apply to you then please make an appointment to see us at Coastal IVF as soon as possible.

  1. Have you been trying to conceive for more than 6 months?
  2. Have you been diagnosed with endometriosis?
  3. Has your partner had a vasectomy?
  4. Are you over the age of 35?
  5. Is your menstrual cycle more than 30 days or less than 26 days?

Women:

  • over the age of 35 should not put off investigation of their fertility more than 6 months
  • over the age of 38 should seek help immediately
  • who do not menstruate regularly are often not ovulating and should seek advice early

Did you know? Failure to conceive is often the only symptom of endometriosis.

Early investigation means early diagnosis and more effective treatments.
