Discover The REAL Reasons For Infertility Here!

By Lisa Olson

Are you not able to become pregnant? Do you wonder what the reasons for infertility are? READ this article now to find your answers…

Though there has been a great deal of improvements in medical science and gynecology in recent years, but the fact remains that we still have no idea on so many things about fertility, and particularly in all those cases when the couple is unable to conceive. Ask any expert what are exact reasons for infertility in any particular case, and the person will tell you that it can be the “male factor”, the “female factor”, or there can be many “unknown factors as well because of which the couple is unable to have a baby. The good news is, we can at least know the real causes of infertility in many cases.

Various studies have been carried out and many research papers have been published on the known reasons for infertility and let us now delve on them. When there is a Male Factor, the reasons are mainly low sperm count, abnormal sperm shape, the life span of the sperm too less and also a condition that is known as variocele. There are quite a few reasons because of this happens such as age, wrong lifestyle and others too. The sperm count can take a heavy beating if the man smokes too much, is an addict or if he drinks regularly. Doctors would even ask the man to wear lose clothing because tight jeans can reduce the sperm count. A higher scrotum temperature, according to recent studies also can lead to male infertility. Taking a shower for a long time in super heated tubs is yet another reason for male infertility.

In women too, the reasons for infertility can be many, but the most frequently seen is the Pelvic Inflammatory Disease or PID where the fallopian tubes are affected and consequently movement of the egg. Other reasons that can make females infertile include Gonorrhea and such Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Abortions are now happening everywhere but in some cases at least, the conditions are not extremely sterile and this is quite dangerous as the entire reproductive system of the woman may be affected because of this. It can lead to infertility in women.

PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome or simply ovarian cysts is another reason that may cause infertility, though it needs to be mentioned here that this is quite common among women, and normally it does not cause any problems. But in some cases at least, it can cause infertility. When this happens, the hormones that make the follicles cannot be produced in the required numbers, and as a result, the follicle cannot make a matured egg, and naturally thus, the fertility is compromised. Since eggs are not being made, the ovary gets filled with swollen follicles, and it begins to appear like a fully grown grapefruit and this can lead to inconvenience and trouble.

Female infertility can according to studies also be a result of Premature Ovarian Failure or POF. This condition is also known as pre-matured menopause and it happens when the follicles are not produced, even before the woman is 40 years of age. In such cases, naturally the woman will not be able to conceive and is thus termed infertile.

There has been some known cases of infertility in women from Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea, wherein she does not menstruate anymore because of an instability in the in the thyroid gland and hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal system, which incidentally is what regulates the process of reproduction. And it can also happen from Idiopathic Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism wherein functional ovaries cannot get developed. Apart from this, there are some other reasons like Luteal Phase Defect and Benign Uterine Fibroids.

We see thus that there can be many reasons for infertility in both males and females, and so if the person is seeking treatment, it is necessary to first find out the exact cause, and then only can the treatment be suggested. Ironically however, this is an area where the conventional approach fails. All it does is suggest assisted reproductive techniques such as IVF and ICSI. Sad but true, their success rate is just 33% and they also cause quite a few side effects. Holistic remedies can help here because in this, a person’s health overall is considered first and only then is the specific remedy suggested that can be Chinese medications, herbs, diet, acupuncture, exercise and lifestyle changes – and this is enough to beat the causes of infertility. Naturally thus, holistic remedies work much better with infertility.
