Causes of Infertility: Some Examples
Couples learning they are infertile are likely to be devastated. Some people wait their entire lives to have children and to be told that you can’t makes you feel worthless or inferior. However, it is important to know some of the causes for infertility because some of the causes of infertility can be reversed. That means that even if you’re told that you can’t have children today, in a few months of following doctor’s orders, you could be on your way to having your first of many children. Just remember that if the doctor tells you that your infertility is caused by something that is impossible to cure or fix, it may seem like it is the end of the world. Sometimes, adopting a child can be just as joyous as having a child naturally.
Male Versus Female Infertility Causes
When couples learn they can’t have children, the woman often blames herself first. It’s a woman’s worst fear, in most cases, to be told that they can’t have children. Female infertility can be caused by a great many things including genetics, smoking, a poor diet, lack of exercise, a hormone imbalance and more. The diet, smoking, and other lifestyle characteristics can be changed to reverse fertility but in cases such as genetics, there may be nothing that can be done. However, a woman shouldn’t jump to conclusions without getting tested by a doctor because it may be the man that is the cause of their inability to become pregnant.
Male infertility can be caused by a low sperm count, irregular sperm, certain diseases and, again, genetics. Smoking, drug use and other lifestyle characteristics often play a part in male infertility as well. If a couple is unable to become pregnant, the man should be tested to determine if he is the cause of the couple’s inability to conceive. The man will provide a sperm sample and will have it tested by the doctor. A blood and urine test may be necessary as well to determine if there are any other internal causes for infertility.
There are other options if a couple is determined to have one or more of the causes for infertility, there are other options available. For instance, there is adoption, there is in vitro fertilization and more. Talk to your doctor to see if there are alternatives available for you, such as holistic fertility treatments. And, if not, there is always adoption. Sometimes, bringing that joy to an orphaned boy or girl can be just as great as that of having a child naturally. After all, there are many children out there who don’t have parents and you may be just the parents to fill the job for a very lucky little boy or girl.
