Reasons for infertility

Infertility might be due to several different reasons, sometimes the cause remains unknown.

Reasons for infertility in the woman:
Reasons for female infertility can be due to abscent or irregular ovulation, hormonal imbalances, being severly under - or over weight and it also relates to age. Some women have polycystic ovaries (PCO) which might affect the menstrual cycle, occasionally a damaged Fallopian tube can occur after a chlamydia infection or after an abdominal surgery which might negatively affect fertility. Gynecologic malformations, myomas or polyps in the uterus and endometriosis can also be reasons to infertility.

Reasons for infertility in the man:
Reasons for male infertility may be impaired or absent sperm production, which is sometimes due to unclear reasons but may be due to viral infections in the testes or epididymis in cases of prostatis. Another reason can be some form of blockage in the spermatic duct after surgery, infection or deformation. Erectile dysfunction may also be a factor, as well as medicines, anabolic steroids and drugs might adversely affect sperm production.
