Infertility is the inability to produce a baby by natural means of conception. There are many reasons why men and women aren’t able to produce a baby naturally. Some of them are easily remedied while others are more difficult to work with. If you and your partner have been trying for more than a year to conceive a baby, you should start by both of you having a thorough exam by a doctor.
Find Out Who First
In most cases, the cause of infertility lies with either the male or female. Only a very small percentage of infertile couples are the result of both parties having an issue with infertility. The focus isn’t on who is infertile, but rather why and what the options are. Sometimes men are infertile because of the type of underwear they use. They could be too tight, restricting the development of sperm. This can be taken care of by switching to looser fitting underwear. Low sperm counts can be helped with male enhancement supplements and penis exercises. Other reasons for infertility in men include exposure to dangerous chemicals, injuries to the testicles, and the use of some prescription drugs.
Females sometimes have infertility problems that have to do with their reproductive organs. They may have irregular ovulation patterns, cervical issues, or tubes that won’t allow the egg to be fertilized. Thyroid problems can affect fertility as can the drugs that women use for a variety of health issues. Both prescription and over the counter weight loss drugs can reduce a woman’s ability to conceive.
While some infertility issues can’t be resolved, many of them can be resolved by making some simple changes to your lifestyle and the items you consume. Seeing your doctor will help determine the underlying reasons for your infertility, helping you find a successful way to conceive a baby naturally.
