Congenital heart disease, Atrial Septal Defect, Infertility


Congenital heart disease (CHD) or congenital heart disease is an abnormality of the structure and function of the cardiac circulation at birth. Congenital heart disease is divided into two, namely cyanotic and acyanotic. Acyanotic CHD is divided into two, namely acyanotic CHD with shunts for example ASD (Atrial Septal Defect), VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) and PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosus) and acyanotic CHD without shunts, examples are pulmonary stenosis. ASD (Atrial Septal Defect) is a congenital birth defect in the form of a hole in the interatrial septum that occurs due to failure of interatrial septal fusion during the fetus and is followed by pulmonary venous flow that enters the left atrium and then passes through the right atrium. Infertility is said to be primary infertility if previously a married couple failed to get pregnant after one year postpartum or post- abortion without using any contraception.
