Infertility Factors – Age, Sex & Other

Infertility Symptoms – Definitions

When a couple is unable to become pregnant after 12 months of unprotected intercourse, they are considered infertile. Infertility is the inability to have a baby.

One or both partners have varying emotional reactions when they are diagnosed as infertile. The news can be particularly hard on couples that are without children.

Infertility, in couples that have never had a child, is referred to as primary infertility.

On another note, secondary infertility refers to the condition where couples who already succeeded in having a baby are finding problems conceiving again.

The Male Factor

Various physical and emotional factors trigger infertility.

“Male factors” like hormone deficiency, low sperm count, impotence, retrograde ejaculation, environmental pollutants and scarring from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) cause roughly 30 to 40% of infertility cases.

Frequent marijuana use and intake of prescription drugs like cimetidine, nitorfurantoin, and spironolactone may affected sperm count.

The Female Factor

Ovulation dysfunction, fallopian tube abnormality, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, scarring from STDs, hormonal imbalances, pelvic infection, poor nutrition, and tumors are just some of these “female factors.” These are the primary causes of 40 to 50 per cent of infertility cases.

Factors from both male and female, including other unknown causes, make up 10 to 30% of infertility cases.

It is projected that only 10 to 20% of couples won’t be able to get pregnant after one year. It is essential for couples to keep trying to conceive for a year at the very least.

Age-Related Factors

Healthy couples who are under 30 years old and have sex regularly have a 25 to 30% chance monthly of getting pregnant. The peak of a woman’s fertility is in her 20s. Women above 35 years of age have a less than 10% chance of getting pregnant, and this declines as they get older.

Other Non Age-Related Factors

Age-related factors are not the only causes of infertility. The risk of infertility is also heightened because of the following factors:

* Having had sex with more than one partner
* STIs
* Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) history
* Men with epididymitis or orchitis history
* Mumps among men
* Abnormal vein enlargement in scrotum
* Health background citing exposure to DES (both male and female)
* Eating and food disorders among females
* Irregular menstrual cycles and anovulation
* Endometriosis
* A blockage in the cervix or uterine defects
* Long-term disease like diabetes
