Ovulation Disorder Testing in Delhi

Ovulation Disorders

Ovulation disorders are one of the most common reasons for female fertility problems. Almost 1 out of 4 women experience ovulatory problems and women with irregular ovulation face difficulty getting pregnant.

Understanding ovulation

A female reproductive system has two ovaries that house thousands of oocytes (egg-producing cells). These oocytes are nested in fluid-filled structures called follicles. During each menstrual cycle, 1-2 follicles develop mature eggs that are released by the mid of the menstrual cycle (on day 14 of a typical 28-day cycle). This process where the egg is released from the follicle into the fallopian tubes is known as ovulation.

The pituitary glands release hormones such as gonadotropin hormone (GnRH), Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH) that are essential for the growth and development of the follicle. Luteinizing hormone specifically helps release the mature egg and the ovaries produce estrogen that triggers the ovulation process.

Maintaining a hormonal balance is essential for the process of ovulation to take place.

Signs of Ovulation disorders

Women with ovulation problems have symptoms like:

  • Prolonged or delayed menstrual cycles for more than 35 days.
  • Irregular/absence of menstrual periods.
  • Pelvic pain and discomfort at the time of ovulation (ovulation pain).
  • Difficulty conceiving.

What causes ovulation disorder?

Causes of ovulation disorders may be because of the following reasons:

Hormone problems:Hormones produced by the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and ovary work together to regulate ovulation. Ovulation disorder may be attributed to :

  • GnRH is not released from the pituitary gland leading to absence of ovulation.
  • The pituitary gland does not release FSH to stimulate follicular growth.
  • Reduced production of estrogen that restricts the ovaries from releasing the egg.
  • Excess of prolactin hormone or hyperprolactinemia, reduces the production of FSH and estrogen, preventing ovulation.

Ovary problems: Ovarian problems can be an premature ovarian failure, absence of ovaries, or resistant ovary syndrome (where the active egg-producing cells are resistant to grow/mature)

Other factors: Diseases of the glands, diabetes, sugar intolerance, tumor of the pituitary gland/ adrenal gland, endometriosis, ovarian cysts can prevent the egg development process and ovulation.

Excessive exercise, increased stress, medications, and dietary changes can hamper the FSH production affecting ovulation.
