Decent Essays
A quarter of female infertility is caused by a problem with their ovulation, normally, each month an egg matures within its own follicle in the ovary and is released into the fallopian tube. This process of ovulation is the fertile time of the menstrual cycle. There are many reasons for female infertility, the one cause of infertility is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This is a complex condition in which a woman’s ovaries are usually bigger than the average size. “Polycystic means the ovaries have many cysts or follicles that rarely grow to maturity or produce eggs capable of being fertilised. This can affect up to a third of women, as polycystic ovaries can be seen on an ultrasound, but they do not all have PCOS.” (Better Health, 2015)
