Female Infertility

In the United States, the average age of menarche is around 12.5 years. In post menarchal girls, in about 80% of the cycles ovulation does not actually take place in the first year, 50% in the third and 10% in the sixth year. Menopause occurs between ages 48 and 55. This is the end of the fertile phase in a woman's life. Age is the single most important factor which affects women’s fertility and chances of conceiving and having a child. With women, the most common reasons for infertility are endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), tubal blockage and advanced maternal age that affects egg quantity/quality. Infertility affects approximately 10% of American couples of childbearing age which is about 6.1 million. Obesity in reproductive health also leads to infertility and heavy menstrual bleeding.
