Ovulation disorders like PCOS/PCOD:

The majority of infertility cases in women are due to ovulation disorders. Due to ovulation disorders, a woman ovulates infrequently or not all. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) are the most common disorders that impact ovulation.

Uterine Fibroids and Endometrial Polyps:

Large growths that vary in size found in the uterine cavity are called Endometrial polyps. These growths can become controversial and impact fertility by becoming a hindrance, i.e., by interfering with the ability of an embryo to implant. They should be surgically removed.

Growths in the uterus that are noncancerous in nature are called Fibroids. They are very common. Depending on their location within the uterus, fibroids alone don’t necessarily cause infertility problems in women. Fibroids that create a distortion in the uterine cavity and could cause an impact on the ability of an embryo to implant, such fibroids should be surgically removed. 

Men’s Infertility is caused by these factors

Some factors that can cause infertility in men could be the age of the man, varicocele, hormone imbalances and genetic disorders, STDs, and ejaculation problems. At times, the causes of infertility in men could also be due to medications, prior surgeries, undescended testicle(s), and at times are unexplained. Take a male fertility test to know what has caused infertility.

Some Factors that Affect the Majority Of Men:


A varicocele occurs when the veins that drain the testicle begin swelling, this can impact sperm quality tremendously. One or both testes could get affected by varicocele. Varicocele does not present any symptoms and affects the majority of men that experience infertility.

Hormone Imbalances and Genetic Disorders

Certain disorders of the testicles and hormone imbalances in the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland(parts of the brain that signal the testicles to produce sperm and testosterone), the thyroid and adrenal glands can cause infertility in men. Other hormone problems have a number of possible underlying causes. Infertility could also be caused due to genetic disorders which impact the normal development of the male reproductive organs.
