What Can Cause Female Infertility?

Female infertility occurs when you have been attempting to conceive naturally for at least a year with no results. Male or female infertility might cause infertility. Female infertility has several reasons, some are mentioned below:
Age
The most consistent element influencing female fertility is age. The ladies have all of their eggs at birth, and the eggs only decline over time following delivery. Fertility begins to diminish after the age of 30, and the decline becomes considerable around the age of 40. Pregnancy is more difficult after the age of 40, with a larger risk of medical complications and chromosomal abnormalities.
Smoking
Smoking makes it difficult to conceive. It also raises the risk of miscarriage, difficult pregnancy times, early birth, growth limited kids, and other pregnant issues.
Weight
Weight has a significant impact on hormonal balance, glucose metabolism, and hence insulin metabolism in the body. Obesity might cause irregular periods and inhibit proper egg production every month. Even if the eggs are produced, they may not be suitable for fertilisation and implantation since the hormonal environment has been disrupted.
Timing of sex
Due to job pressures and a lack of quality time together, it is normal for couples to have relatively rarely sex. It is crucial to have sex during ovulation, but timing should not become a strain and agenda on the to-do list. It is also crucial to make frequent efforts every other day or every two days rather than on the day of ovulation.
Presence of certain gynaecological conditions
PCOS, Endometriosis, Tuberculosis, PID, and other illnesses can all have a negative impact on your chances of getting pregnant. These problems must be addressed and remedied.
Semen quality
This is not a female-related issue, although the quality of sperm might be an issue at times. One of the most essential elements is sperm, and several abnormalities in quantity and quality may be present in otherwise normal men. A routine examination when you begin planning the pregnancy might be extremely helpful in taking prompt measures.
