Infertility is a condition where you are unable to conceive after a year of trying. Endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and thyroid problems are just a few examples of female infertility causes. Low testosterone or low sperm counts may be seen in men who are having fertility issues. The likelihood of infertility rises with age. In this article, we will be taking a look at the common causes of infertility.

What is Infertility

If a couple tries but is unable to conceive after a year, doctors will label them infertile. For an infertility diagnosis, the period spent attempting to conceive decreases to six months for women over the age of 35. A quick examination is necessary for women over 40. Miscarriage or the inability to carry a kid to birth are not considered to be forms of infertility.

Causes Of Infertility

Causes of infertility vary:

  • 1 in 3 infertile women has a problem with the female reproductive system.
  • 1 in 3 infertile men has a problem with the male reproductive system.
  • 1 in 3 couples has a problem that affects both of them or an undetermined issue

Infertility affects 1 in 10 women between the ages of 15 and 44, according to estimates. Pregnant women with complications risk losing the child:

before week 20 of pregnancy (miscarriage).

 week 20 of pregnancy (stillbirth).

Types Of Infertility

Primary: A woman who has never been pregnant and who, after a year of not using birth control, is unable to become pregnant.
