Usually after marriage a couple will want to start a family. However some couples have trouble having a baby. The reason may be infertility in either of the husband or wife or both.

Usually when the couple wishes to have a baby they will have unprotected sex. Then the lady may conceive at least within a year at the most. In case this does not happen then the couple needs to see a doctor especially a fertility specialist.

Infertility can be of two types. The primary infertility is where the woman is not able to conceive even after a lot of effort. The second infertility can be that the woman has conceived once and has a child or two but later on is not able to conceive.

A number of tests will be done by the doctor for both the husband and wife as to know the real cause. So what can be the causes of infertility? Dr. Garima Tyagi Indrapuram underlines some more prevailing causes for infertility in men and women thus

Dr. Garima Tyagi

If the cause of infertility is the woman then it can be

  • Ovulation disorder
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Endometriosis
  • Poor egg health
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

If the cause is in the man then the causes can be

  • Low sperm count
  • Poor sperm health
  • Anti sperm antibodies
  • Vas deferens blockage

Many a time both the husband and wife are diagnosed with fertility issues it is called combination infertility.

After all the tests for any physical symptoms are negative yet the couple is not able to have a child then the cause is termed as unexplained infertility.

This doctor working in Shree Narayan Hospital says except for the last cause usually almost in all the cases infertility is curable. The couple will have to undergo certain treatment for a period of time and follow the instructions of the doctor. A surgery also may be required in some severe cases to rectify the underlying causes. After the completion of the treatment from an expert the chances for the wife to conceive are high and many childless couples have become the proud parents of a couple of children too.
