ABSTRACT:
This study sought to investigate the etiology and risk factors contributing to infertility, assess the efficacy of fertility-inducing drugs, and analyze the treatment modalities' impact on the quality of life for infertile patients. Spanning a 6-month duration, the research incorporated 50 patients, and risk factors were discerned through a tailored case report form reflecting daily routines and habits. A comparative analysis of Letrozole, Clomiphene citrate, and Metformin was conducted based on existing literature. Predominant causes of female infertility encompassed tubal factors, ovulatory disorders, endometriosis, and unexplained factors. Common risk factors included advanced age, smoking, alcohol consumption, abnormal body weight, and excessive caffeine intake. The study highlighted that while no single risk factor exclusively caused infertility, the presence of multiple factors heightened the likelihood of its development. Clomiphene emerged as the most effective fertility-inducing medication among the three drugs examined. Categories: Obstetrics/Gynecology
