The indication of possible infertility is when a couple fails to achieve conception after a year or more of intercourse without contraception.


1. The most common cause in women is failure to ovulate (release an egg from the ovary each month) due to a hormone failure. Sometimes hormone imbalance can produce hostile mucus in the vagina that actually repels the male sperm or stops the fertilized egg from attaching itself to the uterus (womb).


2. In some women, the problem may be a physical one such as a hymen or vagina too tight for intercourse, or a malformation of the vulva (external genitalia), the vagina or any reproductive organ.


3. Other disorders that can lead to infertility may happen at any time--such as infection from bacteria or viruses, sexually transmitted diseases (STD), or the growth of fibroids, polyps or cysts, blocked fallopian tubes.


4. Emotional stress is another common cause. Psychological factors can stop ovulation or cause spasms in the fallopian tubes, which inhibit the passage of the egg to the uterus.
Infertility is just as likely to be caused by a problem in the man as in the woman, and in many cases, it is the result of combined factors. For infertility in men, see Male problem.
