Irregular periods and difficulty in conception could be signs of an underlying ovulation problem. Ovulation troubles are, in fact, one of the most common causes of infertility. Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovaries every month. On the first day of the menstrual cycle, follicles and eggs start developing and maturing. After around 15 days, the most mature egg bursts out of its follicle and travels into the fallopian tube after being released from the ovary. Finally, fertilization takes places after sexual intercourse where the sperm penetrates the egg in the fallopian tube. This fertilized egg goes into the uterus and implants itself in the uterine wall. Pregnancy happens if this chain of ovulation, fertilization and implantation is healthy and successful in a female body. But issues with any of these processes can lead to infertility problems. As your menstruation cycles are irregular and you are also not being to conceive, it could be due to an ovulation problem. You should consult your doctor who may prescribe suitable fertility medicines to stimulate ovulation.
