anatomical defects of genital tract, endocrinological disorders especially ovulatory failure
, nutritional deficiencies and genital infections (Arthur et al., 1989).
To address this important issue, he established an original experimental model in goats and laboratory animals, and revealed that maternal heat stress generates an oxidative stress in the ovary and oviduct at the cellular level, and this in turn results in the ovulatory failure
and early embryo death.
On the other hand, in our study, it was seen that the prevalence of male factor and ovulatory failure
was low, while tubal obstruction was much higher as compared to Iraqi women.
First, epilepsy itself appears to boost a woman's risk of ovulatory failure. Second, treatment with valproate, a commonly used antiepilepsy drug, appears to make an independent contribution to ovulatory failure, Dr.
In a study with 94 women with epilepsy and 23 control women, those with primary generalized epilepsy (PGE) who were also treated with valproate had a 55% prevalence of ovulatory failure, said Dr.
In contrast, the rate of ovulatory failure among control women was 10.9%, a rate that's typical for the general population of women of reproductive age.

Clomiphene citrate typically is considered first-line therapy for patients experiencing ovulatory failure
. The orally administered drug triggers the gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which signals the pituitary gland to produce higher levels of hormones that stimulate ovulation.
There is an increase in ovulatory failure and endometriosis in women who drink, and these factors may be responsible for the infertility.
The risks of ovulatory failure in women who are moderate drinkers are 1.3 times higher than in women who don't drink at all.
A: There can be many causes, but the most common are ovulatory failure
or defect, tubal obstructions or adhesions, endometriosis, and uterine myomas.
