Infertility is the inability to procreate naturally due to several reasons, after having proper sexual intercourse. Both men and women are susceptible to this disorder, but females are found to be extremely prone to this disorder. A lot of couples always face this problem when they are about to start a family and produce children. There are so many reasons for this disorder; however, there are unexplained reasons too.
The female anatomy is a very complex one, and changing the mode of lifestyles can cause so many disorders. Female infertility is due to so many reasons such as exposure to radiations and chemicals which affect the reproductive system negatively. Hormonal imbalance also causes this disorder in women. Unhygienic lifestyle such as staying in a dirty environment is also responsible for this disorder. A stressful life can provoke a woman to smoke and drink alcohol, but these are prime causes of this disorder in women. Excessive use of electronic gadgets that emit radiation is another cause. Placing a laptop on the thigh for longs hours can damage ovaries as a result of the emitted rays from the laptop. Also, exposing yourself to allergen, radioactive elements, and carcinogens can also lead to this disorder.
Medically, the most common cause of this disorder is Endometriosis. This is a situation whereby the tissue that forms the lining of the uterus spreads to the pelvic cavity, rather than the formation of uterus. The presence of tumours in the fallopian tube of a woman is another cause. The quality of released egg is another factor. When eggs with bad chromosomes are released, they will not become fertile even when the sperm comes in contact with them. Inflamed pelvic cavity and sexually transmitted diseases are also responsible for this disorder in women, to a large extent. If this disorder occurs at an early age, it is probably due to non-sterile abortions. The presence of multiple ovarian cysts can cause this disorder in a woman as a result of total damage to the ovaries. The reason behind this is an excess amount of testosterone in a woman’s body.
The use of herbs for curing infertility dates back to ancient times of our forefathers. They are used for treating this disorder both in men and women. Nevertheless, you must ensure that you take these herbs in the appropriate and required dosage from a qualified herbal specialist.
