Infertility in men and women

Infertility in simple words is an inability of a woman to conceive a baby and the inability of a man to impregnate a woman. It is a condition that can either occur due to male or a female inability. You cannot always blame a woman for infertility. Each couple has some different problem and the treatment option will vary according to the condition. Let’s review some causes of male and female infertility.

Female Infertility

A woman can face infertility due to several factors and one of the main symptoms of infertility in females is irregular menstrual cycle that’s too long, too short or absent. This irregularity defines that you are not ovulating. Other things that are keeping you from getting pregnant are:

  • • Damage to Fallopian tube
  • • Imbalanced hormones
  • • Endometriosis
  • • A birth defect
  • • Intense exercise
  • • Cyst or tumor
  • • Thyroid problem
  • • Cervical issues
  • • Uterine trouble

Some females face trouble getting pregnant due to ‘unexplained infertility’ in which the exact causes are never pinpointed.

Male infertility

A male infertility generally depends on the quality and quantity of the sperm. If a male’s sperm quality is poor and number of sperm is low, then it will be difficult and sometimes impossible for a man to impregnate a woman. Mental & physical work pressure, stress, nutritional deficiency, fatigue, improper sleep, all lead to infertility in a man. For about one in 5 couples, the infertility lies solely in the male partner.

Other causes of male infertility

  • • Sperm transport disorder
  • • Gonad disorder
  • • Pituitary disorder
  • • Poor semen quality.
  • • Swollen veins
  • • Abnormally developed testicles
  • • Genetic condition
  • • Severe infection
  • • Hernia repairs
  • • Urinary tract infections

Physical test is required to know the reason behind a male infertility. Semen analysis is the most important part of male fertility testing and after that long treatment is required.
