Infertility in people is described as the inability of a person to reproduce by natural means.
In practice it means that it is the inability of a woman to become pregnant which can be caused by the man, woman or by both or sometimes by other external factors such as environmental issues. Sometimes the partners are individually fertile, but the combination of partners obstructs pregnancy (which can have many reasons).
The most common cause of female infertility is ovulatory problems, which again can have many causes, such as cysts, hormonal regulation, ovarian adhesions, uterine or genetic issues, and what not. Ovulatory dysfunctions generally manifest themselves by very irregular or absent menstrual periods.
The main cause of male infertility is low semen quality. In men who have the necessary reproductive organs to procreate, infertility can be caused by low sperm count due to endocrine problems, drugs, radiation, poor blood supply, toxins or infection, to name a few issues.
Additionally with men, there may also be testicular malformations, hormone imbalances, DNA issues, anti-sperm antibodies, or blockages of the man’s duct system obstructing a healthy functioning.
Although many fertility issues can be treated through surgery, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or hormonal substitutions, some may be indefinite. In general, about twenty percent of infertile couples have unexplained infertility. In these cases, traditional genital massage and bodywork or traditional energy work may be the last resort to try to re-stimulate the genital and reproductive system.
