Infertility in male and female: Types and causes


I often hear about infertility, but not many people have a good understanding of infertility.

Let’s learn more about infertility here.

What is infertility?

Infertility is a condition that makes it difficult to get pregnant.
Infertility is different from illness, and what is wrong is different from person to person.

That’s why it’s hard to understand the symptoms clearly.Medically speaking, infertility refers to infertility when a couple does not use contraception and does not get pregnant for more than two years even after having sex.

It is said that if you have sex on the day of ovulation, you will get pregnant once in 4-10 times.
Therefore, couples and couples with no cause of infertility will become pregnant within one to two years.

As a guideline, if you don’t get pregnant after having sex without contraception for 1-2 years, it may be appropriate to consider it as infertility.

What causes infertility?

There are various causes of infertility.

According to WHO findings, infertility is caused by 40% of women alone and 24% of men alone.
Announced that the rate of both women and men is 24%.

This result also shows that almost half of men have infertility.

Therefore, it is important that only women who face infertility should face the infertility firmly in the couple, not worry

Causes of infertility differ between men and women

The causes of infertility vary greatly between men and women.
The most common cause of infertility in women is a problem with the fallopian tube.

The fallopian tube is a very important organ for women, but it is very delicate.
The fallopian tubes are delicate and can become clogged or inflamed with a few troubles.

When such troubles occur, sperm cannot pass, resulting in infertility.

Most of the causes of infertility in men are due to sperm problems.
Fewer sperm with athletic ability can cause infertility.

Besides, sexless without sex in the first place.
There is also functional infertility such as aging of men and women and unknown causes.

Women are fallopian tubes, men are sperm

The most common case of women suspected of being infertile is a problem with the fallopian tube. The fallopian tubes are so delicate that they tend to get clogged or inflamed for a few reasons.
Therefore, it happens that sperm and fertilized eggs cannot pass, causing infertility.

On the other hand, males are characterized by very many cases of sperm problems. The cause of infertility on the male side is a low number of healthy sperm and a low sperm motility.
Furthermore, sexlessness, aging of the first birth, and functional infertility are the causes of infertility.

Is it infertility? If you think …

It is important to have a doctor’s diagnosis as soon as possible if you think you will not get pregnant even though you are having sex on the ovulation day .

Infertility does not cause symptoms such as headaches or coughing.
Therefore, it is difficult to find the cause of infertility by yourself.
If you have any doubts, you should go to the obstetrics and gynecology department.

My friend was suffering from infertility, but when I went to the doctor, I had a baby.

First of all, it is important to know what causes infertility.

Half of the causes of infertility are men

When it comes to fertility treatment, you have a strong impression of being a woman.
According to a World Health Organization (WHO) survey, men and women are half or half the cause of infertility.
Therefore, no matter how much fertility treatment a woman does, if a man has a cause, she cannot get pregnant.

In fertility treatment, it is most important that men actively participate and treat together.
I would like to introduce male infertility here.

The important thing is to inspect

First of all, you need to identify the cause.
It is necessary to perform a “semen test” firmly at a specialized fertility clinic to see if you have infertility.

First of all, it is important to conduct a thorough inspection.‚óŹ What is semen inspection? It is an
inspection to check the state of sperm in semen. The collected semen is examined with a microscope to check the amount of sperm, the amount of exercise, and the health status. It is thought that the state of sperm changes with slight changes every day. Therefore, it is common to inspect several times over a period of days.

Causes and types of male infertility

The following are possible male infertility:


Azoospermia is a condition in which there is no sperm in the semen, but if sperm is present in the testis or epididymis, fertilization and pregnancy can be achieved through infertility treatment such as microinsemination.
Generally, it is said that there is one azoospermia in every 100 people.


One of the most common causes of male infertility is varicocele of the gallbladder, which can swell in veins in the scrotum The testicular temperature rises due to the formation of the hump, and the testis function is lowered because the testis is vulnerable to high temperature and other stresses. For this reason, sperm production capacity is said to decline.

Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is another cause of male infertility. Erectile dysfunction may be caused by lifestyle-related diseases such as stress, aging, and diabetes. Treatment may include counseling or medications such as Viagra.

Reasons for male infertility

Sexlessness and ED (erectile dysfunction) have become social phenomena.
The current situation is that this tendency is gradually increasing even for couples who wish to become pregnant.

What is the cause of falling into male infertility?
I consider the reasons for male infertility as follows.

  1. Work stress
  2. Disturbance of eating habits (fast food convenience store lunch)
  3. Disturbed sleeping time
  4. Poor circulation due to lack of exercise
  5. Large intake of things that are bad for the body (cigarettes, liquor, soft drinks)

Get up in the morning, hurry, eat bread and leftovers from the previous night, get on the commuter train, and head for the workplace.

At work, lunch time is short, and you can eat junk food such as lunch boxes and fast food sets you bought at a nearby convenience store.
Due to stress, cigarette smoking increases, and at night the boss takes me to an izakaya and takes a lot of oil.

Of course, the quality of sperm should not improve in these days.

How can I improve the number and quality of sperm?

It is important to have a healthy daily life to improve healthy sperm and sperm motility.

First of all, I would like you to thoroughly review your life and live a healthy life.

  • Neat diet (Japanese main meal / balanced meal)
  • Incorporate moderate exercise into your life
  • Reduce cheap izakaya, fast food, convenience store and instant food as much as possible
  • Ensuring good quality sleep
  • Reduce / stop tobacco


Many people suffering from infertility are not just due to late marriage.
Isn’t it because the fertility of both men and women is decreasing?

In modern times, eating habits have changed compared to the past, and more and more things can be eaten easily and quickly.
However, those diets do not have a very good impact on our bodies.

I believe that a solid diet and a regular life are the key to creating strong sperm.

Pregnancy is not just a job for women.
Let’s work together with men.
