Zyklische Veränderungen am Ovar

  • U. Deichert
  • E. Daume


Die Kinderlosigkeit in der Ehe beruht zu etwa 40% auf andrologischen Störungen und zu ca. 40–50% auf Ursachen bei der Frau, der restliche Anteil wird durch gestörte Interaktionen der Substrate Genitaltraktsekret und Sperma verursacht oder bleibt unklar.
