Functional infertility: the reasons
The topic of infertility is complex, multifaceted and ambiguous. For example, a woman can consciously want a baby (strive for pregnancy, do everything necessary to become pregnant, get upset when it does not work out), but subconsciously – build up protection to avoid motherhood.
About the problems of conception, based on organic factors
When confronted with the problem of conception, inevitably follows a series of diagnostics that examine the health status of partners in order to identify possible physiological causes:
- in the endocrine system
- in the genitourinary system, etc.
Identification of organic disorders allows you to undergo appropriate medical treatment, and thus solve the couple’s problem. However, there are cases when treatment does not bring the desired result.
In practice, there are also cases where the partners’ organisms lack at least some serious organic diseases or pathologies (genital organs, hormonal levels, etc.) that can lead to conception problems, but there is no pregnancy, it does not occur, or is accompanied by difficulties. And then we can talk about FUNCTIONAL infertility – a failure of reproductive functions, despite the fact that morphological disorders in organs and systems are not detected.
About the problems of conception, based on psychogenic factors
The psychological causes of infertility are very different. Depend on the individual characteristics of the couple and the woman herself – their internal conflicts, difficult life history, etc.
For example, in women occurs:
- Not a conscious hostility to their feminine;
- Psychological trauma and difficult life circumstances in the past;
- Severe current situation (material, financial, emotional)
- Early conflict with mom (unresolved);
- Hostility to the fetus (as to a foreign in itself) – usually unconscious;
- Infantilism and immature female, etc.
Often, partners (one or both) present other concomitant psychosomatic symptoms (for example, in a woman – amenorrhea, anovulation, hypochondriacal fears, etc.), which can participate, albeit indirectly, in the development of functional infertility.
