  • -Complications with one or more of the endocrine glands
  • –Poor diet
  • -Stress
  • –Xenohormones
  • -Poor routine choices
  • -Low Body Weight
  • -Overweightness
  • -Long-term use of fertility medicines containing hormones, for example birth control.
  • -Genetic predisposition

Poor Sperm Healthiness

It includes movement of the sperm, tail whip) and shape/proper creation of the sperm and DNA. The reason of poor sperm health are often the same as those for low sperm count, although not every  men with low sperm count will also have poor sperm health and vice versa.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes

The fallopian tubes are the paths in which the ova travel from the ovaries down into the uterus, & if there is a obstruction in these tubes, it can prevent this from occurring.

The major reason of blocked fallopian tubes:


  • -Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), often from STD’s
  • -Endometriosis
  • –Uterine fibroids
  • -Ectopic Pregnancy


Endometriosis occurs when extra endometrium lining of the uterus, which usually produces in preparation for the implantation of the egg, does not totally shed during menstruation and ends up in places where it doesn’t belong. It then begins to assign to other places of the body besides the uterus. When menstruation comes not only does the lining in the uterus bleed, the endometriosis that has grown in other places of the body also bleeds.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

This disease is accredited to hormonal balance in the female body. The hormone disparity may cause menstrual cycle indiscretions, obesity, insulin resistance, skin problems, small cysts in the ovaries, and hirsutism (excessive body hair/thinning head hair). Not all women who are diagnosed with PCOS have all of the symptoms or may only have a couple. Generally PCOS not understood  and because each woman differs in her symptoms it can be difficult to properly diagnose and treat.

  • -Poor lifestyle choices; smoking, drinking alcohol, poor diet, stress, environmental pollution, and sedentary lifestyle (poor circulation).
  • -Hormonal balance
  • -Genetic predisposition
  • -Damage to the reproductive organs
  • -Illness, for example, cancer treated with chemotherapy
  • -Auto-immune disorder
  • -Age plays a role
