Causes of Infertility
Causes of Infertility
The desire of every couple is to become parents within the first or second year of married life. Some couples have this dream fulfilled while there are quite a number of others who do not. There are couples who already have one or two and want more.
The prevalence of infertility in Nigeria is 20-25% among married couples. If you have been trying to get pregnant for one year or more then you may have a problem of infertility.
Most cases of infertility are either male factor (40%), female (40%) or both male and female factor (20%).
Causes of Male Factor infertility include:
Poor Sperm Count, poor motility, total absence of sperms, testicular cancer, Testicular Varicocoele
Causes of Female infertility include:
Tubal blockage, Endometriosis, elevated hormones, Anovulation (i.e. when a woman does not produce any eggs.
The good news is that in the face of all these, couples can still have children.
