Many couples experience difficulties conceiving. As the video explains, there are many common causes of infertility in women, including:
The most common cause of ovulatory disorders is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder. Other causes of ovulatory disorders include premature menopause and thyroid problems.
Tubal or Pelvic Factor Infertility
This is related to problems with the fallopian tubes or the uterus. It can be related to scarring or blockages in the fallopian tubes.
Uterine or Cervical Abnormalities
These abnormalities can make it difficult for a fertilized egg to implant in the uterus or for the embryo to pass through the cervix.
A woman’s fertility begins to decline in her mid-to-late 20s and continues to decline more rapidly after the age of 35. As a woman gets older, her eggs become less viable.
Certain lifestyle factors, such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and being overweight or underweight, can all contribute to fertility problems.
Other Medical Conditions
Certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, celiac disease, and autoimmune disorders, can also cause fertility problems.
In many cases, the cause of infertility is unknown, but these are the most common causes of infertility in women.
