Some factors affecting Fertility

Postby Vicky on 03 Aug 2012, 12:17

It should be noted that, being overweight or obese reduces fertility as it can affect ovulation. Also being underweight can have a negative impact on fertility levels, as women who are severely underweight will not ovulate.
Exposure to certain pesticides, metals and solvents can affect fertility in women also.

Vicky, you are right. Also, there are several sexually transmitted infections which can lead to infertility as a result. Chlamydia is a common STI which affects the fallopian tubes damaging them and making it impossible for eggs to travel down to the womb.
Smoking can adversely affect fertility particularly if practiced over a long period of time. Exposure to the chemicals in cigarettes can lead to different types of cancers.

Stress can reduce the libido (sex drive) which in turn can reduce the frequency of sexual intercourse. Severe stress may also affect ovulation and limit the release of eggs.
One of the results of abortion can be future fertility problems or infertility. Those terminations which are carried out after 10 weeks place the woman at higher risk of future fertility complications.

Infertility in men is most often caused by:
A problem called varicocele (VAIR-ih-koh-seel). This happens when the veins on a man's testicle(s) are too large. This heats the testicles. The heat can affect the number or shape of the sperm. :x :x :x

Movement of the sperm. This may be caused by the shape of the sperm. Sometimes injuries or other damage to the reproductive system block the sperm. :idea: :roll: :roll:

Sometimes a man is born with the problems that affect his sperm. Other times problems start later in life due to illness or injury. For example, cystic fibrosis often causes infertility in men. :(

A man's sperm can be changed by his overall health and lifestyle. Some things that may reduce the health or number of sperm include: heavy alcohol use, drugs, environmental toxins, including pesticides and lead smoking cigarettes. :oops: :oops: :oops:

There are some factors that are affecting fertility either in man or in a woman. They are smoking, excessiveness of alcohol, air burn diseases, contamination of water, stress and abuse of drug. :o :) :D

Excessive exposure to Ultra violet ray can as well be among the factors affecting fertility.
