What your Menstruation Cycle speaks about your Fertility Status?

As girls, it may take a while to understand what menstruation means and its significance in a woman’s life. As you advance in age, you will get familiar with the connection between menstruation and fertility.

Most women lastly understand the crucial significance of menstruation as they try to conceive. It is necessary to keep track of your menstrual cycle to avoid future issues that are commonly infertility centered.

Understanding Your Menstrual Cycle

Your body hormones control the menstruation cycle, and in case there is an issue with the hormones, there are higher chances of suffering from infertility in case the trigger isn’t earlier addressed.

Menstruation or a woman’s period is that time of the month when she experiences bleeding from the vagina. This occurs after ovulation has already taken place in which the ovary releases an egg. The uterus will also prepare its self for pregnancy, and in case no sexual activity is conducted, the egg and the uterine lining will shed and that is the blood you see.

However, bleeding doesn’t mean that a woman ovulates or can get pregnant. Changes in your menstrual cycle, for example;

The bleeding period
Severity of pain
Amount of blood released
How frequent your periods are

All these have something to say about your fertility status. Fertility experts at the leading IVF centre in India advise a woman to visit a gynecologist or a fertility expert as soon as something fishy is witnessed. Many factors can tamper with your menstruation cycle and they include;

Endometrial Scratching And IVF Treatment

What is Endometrial Scratching?

‘Endometrial scratching’ a procedure used for successfully implanting embryos after In-Vitro Fertilization or popularly known as IVF procedure.
This procedure takes place in The IVF centres. This procedure is usually carried out on patients who have failed to get pregnant even after the transfer of good quality embryos. This procedure involves taking a biopsy of the endometrium or womb (lining of the uterus), using a tiny plastic tube (small Pipelle) which is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus to obtain a small endometrial tissue, the small plastic tube creates a suction force and removes the endometrial tissue it comes in contact with; this procedure takes about half a minute.

The procedure should be approximately be done around the 21 of the menstrual cycle or best performed in the week (the luteal phase) before IVF procedure. If the menstrual cycles are irregular the fertility specialist provides specific guidance as to when the procedure will take place. The patient might feel little cramping or mild pain immediately after the procedure which will subside after the treatment is over. No anesthesia is required, but the patients are advised to take over the counter (mild) Pain Killers before the procedure begins. According to a report generated in 2004, 6/10 people encounter pain during the procedure.

How Does It Work?

It is believed that Endometrial Scratching seemingly provokes a reaction within the inner lining of the Womb and immediately hormones and chemicals are released causing a repairing and Wound healing reaction which seemingly triggers the release of Immune cells. The new lining which grows is believed to be more receptive to the implanting Embryo  on the genes responsible for implantation increasing the chances of pregnancy.

Does Endometrial Scratch increases the chance of IVF success?

The evidence which states that endometrial scratching increases the chances of pregnancy from IVF isn’t clear.

A study was conducted during 2012 stating that Endometrium Scratch was 70% more likely to result in pregnancy in women with unexplained recurrent implantation failure. A conclusion drawn by researchers in 2015 stated that Endometrial Scratching more likely improves the birth rate even for those women who have had more than one IVF failures.

Most of the IVF centres offer this services to women who have experienced IVF failures in Past.

In Singapore during the year 2014, randomly a controlled trial of 387 women resulted in the fact that endometrial Scratching not only improved the live birth rate for women with one previous IVF failure but it also improves the rates for women who have had multiple failed IVF cycles. A research was given at the annual meeting of European Society Of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) stating that Endometrial Scratching has not only increased the chance of pregnancy for couples conceiving through IVF but it also helps couples who are trying to conceive naturally, but the quality of the research through which the result was derived was considered “very low”.

Low Sperm Count-A Common Problem

What Do You Mean By Low Sperm Count?

It is a situation in which the fluid called semen when discharged out during orgasm is lesser in number as it should be. When men discharge, approximately 240 million sperms are released. Out of this million sperms, only a few say 100 will reach the fallopian tubes. Sperms have to reach fallopian tubes to reach an egg that has been ovulated.


A problem of low sperm count can be estimated from a continuous attempt to have a baby.
Low desire for sex is also a symptom.


Generally, men take up a fertility check test involving analysis of semen.
In this sample of semen is taken, the total sperms are counted. Then the movable sperms are counted.
How much sperm is concentrated per milliliter of semen help us to detect low sperm count?
The IVF test also helps in testing the low sperm count.


1. Use of drugs reduces the quality of sperm
2. Obesity is also one of the reason.
3. Infections like HIV are also responsible
4. Discharge issues like semen entering the bladder instead of getting out through the penis.
5. Different types of tumors can affect the sperm production.


Low sperms that are healthy have the capability to make women pregnant with continuous attempts.
IVF treatment is the best solution.

For getting low sperm count treatment in India various centers have been opened One of them being the SOFAT INFERTILITY CENTRE where proper treatment is available for the people facing low sperm count.

Obviously Intrauterine Insemminantion is perhaps the most minimally invasive assisted reproductive treatment you will find worldwide. The treatment only requires sperms to be introduced into the woman’s vagina (near the Fallopian Tubes) to increase the chances of conception.

IUI can be done with the help of fertility drugs or an HCG injection (trigger shot) which is a hormone to stimulate the ovaries into producing viable eggs before the sperms are delivered into the woman.

What is the target in IUI

The main target in IUI is to bring the sperms closer to the eggs in order for them to get fertilized. Normally, the sperms have to travel a long distance to find the eggs in the Fallopian tubes for fertilization to occur. IUI treatment in India increases the chances of conception in the identified infertile patients.

IUI is mostly considered in the case of the following;
  • Male infertility (poor sperm motility or low sperm count)
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Cervical mucus
  • Endometriosis
What you must know with IUI

  • The procedure requires less time, efforts, and money
  • Any woman aged under 35 has a 25% chance of getting pregnant
  • Success chances decrease with age
  • It has some side effects like
  • Minor cramping
  • Spotting
  • Miscarriage
Is IUI For me?

Though many couples would wish to undergo IUI treatment many are quite disappointed when they learn that they have to take on IVF treatment. The fact is IUI deals with slight or minor infertility cases and that is why it requires major evaluation in order not to waste money and time.
