Primary causes of infertility
While the causes of infertility are varied from couple to couple, there are a few main causes affecting both men and women.
Ovulation issues: If you don't ovulate, you can't get pregnant. Anovulation is the term for not ovulating and the main causes women do not ovulate are polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), poor egg quality, and advance maternal age.
Poor quality or quantity of sperm: Male infertility contributes to about half of all infertility. In fact, twenty-five percent of infertility is caused by a lack of sperm, decreased motility (movement), and abnormal morphology (shape).
Fallopian tube dysfunction: Fallopian tubes need to be open allowing the egg to easily move throughout. The most common causes of fallopian tube dysfunction are endometriosis, adhesions, and infections.
Timing sex can improve your chances of getting pregnant
Tracking your menstrual cycle and period helps to identify when you ovulate, which will help you determine your fertile window. This is vital for knowing exactly how to time sex for your most fertile days. Each month, you have 5-6 fertile days: the 4-5 fertile days before ovulation and the day of ovulation.
