  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Ovulation problems 
  • PCOS and primary ovarian insufficiency
  • Intrauterine polyps
  • Fibroids
  • Structural issues (blocked tubes, scarring from endometriosis)
  • Infection 
  • Previous surgery
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Genetic issues

Low sperm count, impaired sperm motility, or problems with the structure of sperm cells can also cause infertility.
