There are a myriad of medical conditions that can contribute to infertility - a common condition that affects both men and women.
For women, health conditions such as poly-cyctic ovarian disease - a condition where the ovary grows cysts which interfere with normal ovary function, history of sexually transmitted diseases and structural problems within the female organs, can prevent conception.
In men, low sperm count, structural problems within the male organs, hormonal problems, and the inability to achieve erection contribute to male fertility problems.
In some cases, it is both the man and the woman who have medical conditions that are contributing to the difficulty in conception, and it is the role of the medical practitioner to assess each of the potential causes, and find ways to overcome them.
