Reasons for infertility

Infertility can be the result of several different reasons, and sometimes the cause remains unknown.

Reasons for infertility in Women

Reasons for female infertility can be connected with absent or irregular ovulation, hormonal imbalances, being severely under- or over-weight, and it is also related to age. Some women have polycystic ovaries (PCOs), which might affect the menstrual cycle; occasionally a damaged Fallopian tube can occur after a chlamydia infection or after abdominal surgery, which might negatively affect fertility. Gynaecological malformations, myomas or polyps in the uterus, and endometriosis, can also be reasons for infertility.

Reasons for infertility in men

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