What to do when you have no egg?

Dr. Shalini Kapoor Kad
Sept. 30, 2010

A homoeopathic paediatrician, a counselling expert and a freelance writer are a few words to describe my profession. My sole aim is to put forth practical piece of information that guides every one right in the direction, blending the medicos to a layman with a simple gesture to make the medical things a little less convoluted and comprehendible.


The medicos regard the word as anovulation, a condition where the ovaries are not capable of releasing an egg for fertilisation and thereafter pregnancy. These females generally have no peak fertile time within their menstrual cycles and often there may be no bleeding as such. With female hormones acting strong there are times when they cause the bleed but with no ova to fertilise surfacing everything normal whereas it isn’t.

How to detect anovulation?

The detection is a consistent monitoring of the bodily signs and symptoms related. A hay ware assessment or just on the probable dates can be misleading. Cervical mucus consistency and appearance, temperature regulation all need to thoroughly watched through the months to reveal the underneath and look for the elevation in the scenario indicating ovulation.

Why this occurs?

A variety of reasons can be related to the subject:

  • Lactating mother: female who breast feed with no intervened artificial feeding often get a tool of natural contraception where the ova are nowhere to be fertilised. The scenario often continues till the pure breast feeding to curtail further pregnancy issues.
  • A female on oral contraceptives or else has recently given up the pills. The body takes up the hormonal variation and adapts to not to ovulate and thus safeguard of any unexpected fertilisations. For females who have just stopped taking the pills take some time to adjust and revert to the normal ovulating cycle.
  • weight gain or weight loss: weighty issues either in excess or lesser form can prove hazardous and may leave a female without an ovulation
  • Chronic illness: sometimes debilitating illness may hinder the natural process.
  • Hormonal imbalances: one of the major cause as the entire reproductive system runs on the hormonal variation and any deviation can be troublesome.
  • PCOD polycystic ovarian disease, is one of the prominent cause of infertility where the cysts releasing varied female hormones interfere and result in infertility
  • Stress and anxiety: the brain controls it all and any sort of stress, tension and anxiety may lead to issues. It is often observed that females who are desperate to get pregnant and constantly worry about it suffer the above syndrome.
  • Rigorous exercising

What to do?

The foremost step here lies to detect the fact that a female is not ovulating and why. With the detection of the cause the further line of treatment can be planned accordingly. Some cases will require evasive procedures to identify the root cause leading to the trouble. Once established that there isn’t any apparent cause then there are various medicines available in bazaars to initiate ovulation namely clomid or pregonal. Usually those who ovulate with these require not much treatment and can move ahead with a fertile phase.          

An expert help is to be sorted and never should a female just keep wondering on own and trying all the granny tricks in vain. The science has progressed vast and there are solutions only when you come up and willingly adopt leaving all shadows of sighs away.
