“Why is it so easy for other people to get pregnant, but not us?” If you have fertility problems, that thought has likely crossed your mind more than once. The truth is, it’s NOT always easy. Millions of couples seek help for fertility problems each year. The good news is there are many reasons to be hopeful.
What Is Infertility?
Infertility is often defined as not being able to conceive after 6 months to a year of regular, unprotected sex. It may be caused by fertility problems with one—or often both—partners. In some cases, the cause is unknown. There are many myths about infertility.
Facts About Fertility Problems
Working on Other Factors that Affect Fertility
Certain lifestyle and health habits can affect fertility. Be sure to talk with your fertility specialist about these issues. You may be able to make some simple changes to improve your chances of conception. Keep in mind, though, that it can take time for healthy changes to improve your fertility.
Smoking, alcohol, and drugs
Smoking can affect estrogen levels and decrease egg production in women. Men who smoke may have lowered sperm count. Excessive alcohol or drug use can also decrease fertility in both men and women.
Being overweight or underweight can affect hormone levels. In women, this can impair ovulation. In men, obesity can decrease sperm count.
Medications, supplements, and herbal remedies
Some medications, supplements, and herbal remedies can affect hormone levels in men and women. They can also affect the quantity and quality of sperm. Be sure to tell your IVF Doctor about any substances you take.
A man’s testicles are normally a few degrees cooler than the rest of his body. When the testicles are too warm, sperm production may decline. Try to avoid excess heat from things like hot tubs and saunas.
Certain chemicals can affect hormone levels. Talk with your infertility expert if you’re regularly exposed to strong chemicals. You should also ask about lubricants used during sex. Some types can be toxic to sperm.
Sexually transmitted diseases
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as chlamydia can scar the reproductive organs in both men and women. If you’ve had an STD, be sure to tell your infertility expert.
Excessive exercise can decrease hormone production. It can also cause irregular menstruation in women. Ongoing stress is another factor that may affect fertility and cause ovulation problems.
