Female infertility is a complex problem that can have many contributing factors. The most common contributors to infertility are:
1) Structural problems: blocked fallopian tubes, fibroids or other masses inside the uterus, or blockages or problems with the cervix.
2) Mechanical issues: scar tissue left by infections, endometriosis or prior abdominal surgeries (called adhesions), and obesity.
3) Ovulation variances: lack of egg production, or irregular egg production.
4) Other contributors: thyroid dysfunction, presence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, inadequate production of fertility hormones, anorexia, drug use and stress.
