Ovarian Cysts

Imagine holding a tiny sac containing fluid or semi-solid material. That is what a cyst is like. Cysts can grow almost anywhere in your body or under your skin. There are many types of cysts but most cysts are benign or noncancerous, painless and usually go away on their own. An ovarian cyst during pregnancy is usually no cause for worry.

These ovarian cysts form within or on the surface of a woman’s ovary. They can vary in size from half an inch to four inches, and they usually develop during the childbearing years or after menopause. About 7 per cent (7%) of women worldwide have an ovarian cyst at some time.


Infertility is the inability of a couple to conceive after having regular unprotected intercourse for 12 months. From the point of view of the age of women, it is recommended that a woman less than 35 years, should seek help after a year and if she is over 35 years, she should seek help after six months. 

A common misconception is that infertility is only a woman’s problem. However, this is not true. In fact, for almost 50% of infertile couples, the cause is related to the male partner, either alone or in addition to a female factor.

Nearby are the National Assembly and the Supreme Court of Nigeria.


Now comes the part of IVF that everyone’s the most familiar with, which is combining the best sperm with your best eggs. This stage is called insemination.
It usually takes a few hours for a sperm to fertilize an egg. Your doctor may also inject the sperm directly into the egg instead, a process known as Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).

Why am I not Pregnant?

Generally speaking, a person with a uterus in their early 20s and 30s has a one in four chances of getting pregnant each month. After age 30, the chance of becoming pregnant decreases though, and by the time they are 40, they have a one in ten chances of getting pregnant each month.

By the time a person with a uterus is 45; their chances of becoming pregnant are very low.

The fertility of a person who produces sperm will also decrease with age, but that’s not as predictable as the decline of a person with a uterus.

The Burden of Infertility

One out of every six couples will have difficulty conceiving. Sadly, the rate of infertility is on the increase because of late marriage, delayed childbearing due to educational and career pursuit, increased incidence of pelvic inflammatory disease leading to tubal blockage, changing lifestyle, environmental factors and increased male factor infertility.
In our society, the burden of infertility is felt more by the woman. The belief is that if a couple cannot have a child, it is the fault of the woman. This is the reason more women are seen in the clinics than men. The fact is that the male contribute equally and in some instance more to the cause of infertility. Infertility is therefore not a woman’s problem, but a challenge that the couple should confront together and overcome.
