Like all other species on our planet, humans have a primal instinct to protect our species from extinction. In terms of evolution and biology, mating and reproduction are what we do best. Unfortunately, many of us experience fertility problems because of the influence of the modern world and various environmental changes.

Around the world, infertility affects more than 186 million people. People of any race, gender, or ethnicity can experience infertility. Infertility is described as "a disease characterised by the failure to establish a clinical pregnancy after 12 months of regular sexual intercourse. Infertility can be caused by a variety of factors in both men and women. 


Here are some of the most common infertility risk factors:


Infertility Risk Factors for Men :


  1. Abnormal Sperm Counts: A low sperm count or poor sperm quality can make it more difficult for a man to father a child.


    2. Varicocele: A varicocele is a swollen vein in the scrotum that can cause decreased sperm production and quality.


    3. Ejaculation Disorders: Ejaculation disorders, such as premature ejaculation or retrograde ejaculation, can make it more difficult for a man to conceive a child.


   4. Infections: Certain infections, such as chlamydia and Gonorrhea, can cause infertility in men by damaging the reproductive system.


   5. Exposure to Toxins: Exposure to environmental toxins, such as pesticides and heavy metals, can increase the risk of infertility in men.



Infertility Risk Factors For Women :


  • Ovulation Disorders: Ovulation disorders, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and irregular menstrual cycles, can make it more difficult for a woman to conceive.


  • Fallopian Tube Blockages: Blockages in the fallopian tubes can prevent the sperm from reaching the egg, leading to infertility.


  • Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows outside of it, causing infertility.


  • Age: A woman's fertility declines with age, making it more difficult to conceive as she gets older.


  • Lifestyle Factors: Certain lifestyle factors, such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and being overweight or underweight, can increase the risk of infertility in women.


  • Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine, offers several remedies and practices for treating infertility in both men and women.


Here are some ways Ayurveda can help:


Herbal Remedies: Certain herbs, such as Ashwagandha and Shatavari, are believed to increase sperm count and improve sperm quality. Certain herbs, such as licorice root and fennel, are believed to help regulate menstrual cycles and improve fertility in women.


Diet and Lifestyle Changes: Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle for overall health, including reproductive health. This can include avoiding processed foods, reducing stress, and getting enough exercise.


Massages and Oils: Certain Ayurvedic massages and oils, such as Shirodhara and Abhyanga, are believed to help improve sperm production, regulate menstrual cycles and overall reproductive health.


Yogic Practices: Certain yoga postures and breathing exercises, such as Cobra Pose, Uttana Shishosana, Nadi Shodhana etc. are believed to help improve reproductive health in both men & women.
