Female infertility: the six most common problems

Nowadays, most fertility problems are due to the late age at which women decide to have children. However, the problem can be due to a number of factors that are little-known or can go unnoticed.

There is generally some confusion about this matter. To start with, the name suggests the presence of multiple cysts in the ovary. However, they aren't cysts, but follicles, i.e., developing eggs. What's more, the term has become very popular because many young girls' ovaries "look polycystic" but function normally. The reason for this is that their ovaries haven't matured yet and the problem usually disappears with time.

And if you receive a positive diagnosis, don't panic, because the condition can be treated. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions.
