Contrary to what is commonly believed, infertility is not principally a woman's problem, and the causes of infertility in both men and women are highly complex. There are just as many cases of male infertility as there are of female infertility . However, due to the complexity of the reproductive process, there are many more causes of female infertility than there are causes of male infertility. This section offers you more information about the most common causes of female infertility and the most common causes of male infertility.

Women are responsible for:

  • The production of the egg
  • The migration of the egg in the Fallopian tubes
  • The production of cervical mucus
  • The proper implantation of the egg in the womb
  • The development of the embryo (baby)
  • Whether the egg is able to be penetrated by the sperm

Men are responsible for:

  • The production of semen
  • The deposition of the sperm

Couples require different types of treatment depending on the cause of infertility: for some couples, the treatment may be as simple as carefully monitoring their ovulation, while other couples might need to undergo infertility treatments such as clomid or procedures such as ovulation induction, IVF, ICSI, or IUI. You may have to take a number of fertility tests to determine the cause of infertility.
