Reasons for infertility

The reasons for infertility can involve one or both partners. In general about 40% of cases are attributed to the male, and about 40% are attributed to the female. In the rest of the cases, the reason for infertility involves both partners, or no cause can be identified. In any case, at Newlife we always focus on the couple rather than an individual’s issue.

Main reasons for male infertility:

  • Abnormal sperm production or function due to various problems (genetic, health related, prior infections or prior traumas & surgeries on the testicles)
  • Problems with sperm ejaculation
  • Impaired sperm production (Exposure to specific chemicals and/or toxins)
  • Damage related to various types of cancer and its treatment

Main reasons for female infertility:

  • Ovulation disorders (hormonal disorders, excessive exercise, eating disorders, injury or tumours)
  • Uterine or cervical abnormalities
  • Fallopian tube damage or blockage
  • Endometriosis
  • Low ovarian reserve (age related or premature ovarian failure)
