For many people, conceiving and starting a family becomes difficult and sometimes impossible to achieve naturally. There could be various factors preventing these people from being able to conceive. These factors could affect both males and females.

Given below are some of the contributing factors to female infertility, as well as potential causes and remedies.

For women, the biological clock is constantly ticking. Age plays a vital role in female fertility, with increased marital age and delayed parenthood becoming very common. This is one of the major causes of female infertility. In addition to this, certain genetic conditions and lifestyle choices such as increased intake of tobacco, alcohol and rising obesity, also affect fertility rates. When looking to get pregnant, it is important to understand your specific barriers to conceiving in order to improve your chances of a pregnancy (whether it is medically assisted or natural).
