Top 7 Causes of Infertility in Women and their Remedies

If you’re having difficulties getting pregnant, this write-up will help you find out more about some of the most likely causes of infertility in women (otherwise known as female infertility) and the solutions that will help you overcome each of them.

Many couples trying to conceive get stressed and upset about how hard it can be to get pregnant.

According to statistics, about 6.7 percent of married women ages 15 to 44 are infertile, which means they have difficulty becoming pregnant after trying (having unprotected sex) for one year (or six months for women that are 35 years or older).

So, if you or someone you know fall within this category, the details below will be of tremendous assistance in making you understand the likely cause of your inability to get pregnant and the right solution or approach to restore your fertility and carry your own baby as fast as possible.

1. Tubal Issues

Damaged or blocked Fallopian tubes can prevent sperm from getting to your eggs and prevent the fertilized egg from getting to your uterus, thereby causing infertility.

A lot of women battling with infertility today fall within this category. A simple way to find out the status of your Fallopian tubes is by running an HSG (Hysterosalpingogram).

Some common causes of tubal problems include sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia and gonorrhoea, which can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a generalized infection of the pelvis that can cause scarring and blockage of the Fallopian tubes and endometriosis.

If it has been confirmed that you have issues with your Fallopian tubes, click here for a natural remedy that will help you unblock and repair it without surgery and with no negative effect.

Here is a natural remedy for unblocking blocked Fallopian tubes that can help you.

2. Uterine Abnormalities


In some cases, fibroids may interfere with the implantation of the fertilized egg, thereby causing infertility.

Fibroids are usually noncancerous masses of muscular tissue and collagen that can develop within the wall of the uterus. Fibroids may be associated with reproductive problems depending on the number of fibroids you have in your uterus and on their size and specific location.

Fibroids near the endometrial lining may cause very heavy periods and problems with an embryo implantation or pregnancy complications. Most fibroids, since they are not in the lining of the uterus, don’t impact your pregnancy or create a high-risk pregnancy, but you may have a higher risk of miscarriage or infertility.

Scar tissues (also known as Adhesions or Uterine Synechiae) formation in the uterus or any other part of the female reproductive system is also one of the abnormalities that can lead to infertility in women. One of the major signs of intrauterine adhesions is the loss of monthly period flow or scanty flow.

Scar tissue formation is one of the major side effects of surgery or surgical procedures carried out on any part of the female reproductive system.

3. Ovulation/Hormonal Problems

Ovulation issues may be caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). This is a case of hormonal imbalance that can interfere with normal ovulation.

Primary ovarian insufficiency (also known as premature ovarian failure, or POI) can also cause ovulation problems.

POI is when your ovaries stop working properly before age 40, affecting your release of eggs and chances of pregnancy. (Note that POI precedes menopause, which is when you’ve completely stopped ovulating and having periods.)

Hyperprolactinemia is where you have too much prolactin, the hormone that stimulates breast milk, and that may also interfere with ovulation.

Thyroid issues— too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism)—can affect your menstrual cycle too.

Please note that both hyperprolactinemia and thyroid conditions can be easily treated, so it’s important to seek diagnosis.

Ovarian Cysts also fall under this category as they may sometimes be problematic.

4. Old Age

The mere act of waiting to get pregnant contributes to infertility. Many women do wait until their 30s and 40s to have kids. About one-third of couples in which the woman is over 30 have fertility problems.

Time and biology are on your side during your 20s. At this stage, your body is ready for pregnancy. Experts say that the average woman’s fertility peaks during her early 20s, and you have the highest number of quality eggs at this stage.

A younger woman’s eggs are less likely than an older woman’s to have genetic abnormalities that cause health conditions like Down syndrome.

The risk of miscarriage is also lower. Studies show that the risk of miscarriage is 12 percent to 15 percent for women in their 20s compared to about 25 percent for women at age 40.

It’s also physically easier for women in their 20s to carry a child because there’s a lower risk of high blood pressure, gestational diabetes and other health issues that can complicate pregnancy.

Furthermore, younger women are less likely to have low birthweight or premature babies. When you’re older, your ovaries have a smaller number of eggs left, and your eggs aren’t as healthy.

If age is not on your side and you need to boost your chance of conception, click here to check out the Female Infertility Remedy Kit that has the capacity to help restore your fertility with production of quality and fertile eggs.

5. Unhealthy Bodyweight

Keeping an inactive lifestyle and being overweight or obese can raise your risk of infertility and increase your risk of having miscarriage. Or, if you have an eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia or you follow a very low-calorie or restrictive diet, you’re at risk for fertility problems.

Fortunately, you can take measures to lose or gain weight and may be able to conceive once you get to a healthy body weight. Obese women may find they ovulate normally after losing as little as 5 percent of body weight—that’s just 5kg  for a woman who weighs 100kg.

6. Abnormal Cervical Mucous

Cervical mucous, a fluid secreted by the cervix when oestrogen stimulates production, allows sperm to survive in the hostile, acidic environment of the vagina. Abnormal cervical mucus can prevent sperm from reaching the egg.

7. Endometriosis


With endometriosis, the tissue lining the uterus starts to grow in other places like behind the uterus, in the Fallopian tubes, in the abdomen, in the pelvis or the ovaries. That causes irritation and scar tissue development.

Some women with endometriosis have no symptoms. Others have painful intercourse or periods, heavy bleeding or unusual spotting and general pelvic pain.

Endometriosis can make it difficult to get pregnant because the condition can cause blocked Fallopian tubes, disrupt implantation, cause inflammation in the pelvis and perhaps impact egg quality.

Most healthy couples under age 35 who are trying to conceive and have unprotected sex every other day around the time of ovulation can become pregnant in a year. If you aren’t getting pregnant as fast as you want or hope, consider visiting your health care provider—and suggest your partner do the same, because the problem could be his too.
