Ovary problems and trying to conceive

 


The ovaries, which produce eggs, can be affected by the following: 

- Hormonal imbalance
Many hormones with scary-sounding names (LH, FSH, progesterone and estrogen) can affect a woman's ovaries. If one or more of these hormones is out of balance, this can affect ovulation. Hormone levels in your body are tested through blood tests and, in most cases, imbalances can be treated with medication.

- Ovarian cysts
Often detected by a routine pelvic exam or ultrasound scan, ovarian cysts don't necessarily hinder fertility. Their growth and evolution (in terms of size and position) will be monitored and they may be removed surgically.
