Ovulation may be disrupted due to various issues in the hormonal regulatory system or biological issues. Below are some important disorders related to ovulation:
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): This is a common ovulation disorder often associated with an increase in androgen hormones, such as testosterone. In PCOS, eggs do not mature normally and accumulate as small cysts in the ovaries. This can lead to irregular ovulation or lack of ovulation.
- Deficiency in Mature Eggs: In some cases, eggs do not mature properly and fail to be released from the ovaries. This issue may be caused by various factors, including hormonal imbalances or biological causes.
- Hormonal Imbalances: Improper regulation of hormones can affect ovulation. For example, an increase in prolactin hormone levels can lead to irregular ovulation.
- Causes of Self-Destructive Ovulation: In certain situations, ovulation occurs intermittently and unstably, and eggs do not get released from the ovaries. This problem may be due to inappropriate use of hormonal contraceptive drugs or changes in body weight.
- Unsuccessful Ovulation: In some cases, eggs and sperm reach maturity, but insufficient or unsuccessful fertilization occurs. This issue may be attributed to various factors such as structural abnormalities in the uterus, inadequate sperm quality, or immune system issues observed during sperm examination.
Ovulatory disorders can impact women’s fertility and may have various causes. In some cases, individuals may seek medical treatments or assisted reproductive techniques to enhance their fertility.
