Cause Of Infertility - Things You Need To Know

Sep 7, 2007
One of the biggest misconceptions of the cause of infertility is that it is a woman's problem. This couldn't be further from the truth.

The facts are, there is a three-way split when it comes to determining infertility causes. In fact, it's a three-way split. It's either the man or the woman or in worst case scenarios, the problem is unknown.

The upside to knowing whether either partner has a problem is treatment can then be determined and once the cause is established, appropriate treatment methods can then begin. The downside is when the problen cannot be attributed to either and the cause is unknown.

This is tough for a couple to accept and can create undue stresses emotionally to a relationship. Let's take a look firstly at the possible causes of female infertility.
It's important to understand the complexity of a woman's reproductive system and that things will not be 100% all the time. Generally, when a problem is diagnosed in can be rectified in the majority of cases and in time, conception is achieved.

There is no point in beating yourself up if conception hasn't taken place after 6-12 months because the truth is, whatever the problem is, there is a good chance it can be overcome without too much fuss.

Causes Of Infertility

These are some of the problems a women could be faced with:

- pelvic issues which can affect the reproductive system.

- anatomy deficiencies which include passage blockage and uterine issues such fibroids and tumors.

- ovulation issues caused by anything from physical stress to thyroid glad problems

- functioning issues associated with the reproductive system which means one or more organs malfunctioning which will upset the fertility process.

The good news is in most cases, these factors can be rectified with correct surgical procedures or medications. The bad news... when the above-mentioned problems don't respond to treatment and you begin to run out of options.

Male Infertility Issues

There are many a number of reasons attributed as a cause of infertility in men. Here are just a few:

- low sperm count which encompasses a number of possible reasons such as physical and mental stress as well as a nutritional deficiency.

- varicocele which refers to an enlarged vein within the area of the scrotum.

- testicular heating which can be attributed to clothing being too tight or even hot saunas or baths.

- substance abuse in the shape of drugs, smoking or drinking.

Again, most of the above causes can be rectified with appropriate treatment methods and as is the case with women, don't get too concerned until you've been evaluated by your physician and have undergone treatment.
