Ovulation problems account for approximately 40% of female fertility disorders and are most commonly seen with irregular menstrual bleeding patterns. A variety of conditions come under the umbrella of those ovulatory including premature ovulation, delayed ovulation or the inability to ovulate at all.
These may be hormonal disorders, egg-developmental problems where the eggs are unable to mature enough to be released effectively, or there may be problems in the functioning of the release of the egg itself due to some obstructive disorder.
Some ovulatory disorders may include:
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS/PCOD)
Resistant ovary syndrome
