Although there are several well known causes of infertility, such as low sperm count, failure to ovulate, tubal blockages and endometriosis, there are several "non medical" factors which can be responsible which fail to show up in conventional medical tests.
These less common causes of infertility rarely show up in blood tests or during exploratory surgery but nevertheless can stop a couple having the baby they so desire.
Sometimes, hormonal balances are to blame. However, the levels are so finely balanced that conventional testing would show them as appearing within normal ranges. Although very small hormonal balances are usually not detected, they can be responsible for preventing ovulation in women or stopping the production of sperm.
Another of the less common causes of infertility is the compression of organs. Under normal circumstances, the internal organs are tightly packed, with little room for manoeuvre. It is no wonder then that any minor inflammation can have a major impact. Common occurrences such as constipation, which can cause the colon to fill with waste and swell. As part of the colon works around the uterus and fallopian tubes, this can interfere with the normally healthy blood supply. In men, this can cause pressure on the prostrate gland.
Stress is another of the common causes of infertility. In an otherwise healthy couple, this can be the "straw that breaks the camel's back". Stress can be both mental and physical and in some couples, there is evidence to suggest that the stress of trying to conceive is equivalent to a bereavement. Stress causes the adrenal glands to excrete stress hormones which can block both sex drive and fertility.
Toxicity can be another issue. The additives in some foods, both prescription and over the counter meds, metals found in fish, contaminated water, pesticides and artificial hormones and antibiotics in meat and dairy products can all contribute to infertility. In milder forms, toxicity is not recognized by the medical profession and many people do not realize it is causing infertility until it is too late. One of the best tools we have against toxicity is a good detoxification as this can free up wasted energy and nutrients for other important functions including reproduction.
As you can see, some of the less common causes of infertility are related to the stresses and strains of living in the present times. Our bodies seem to have been overloaded with mental, physical and chemical stresses and this causes the body to shut down non-essential functions such as ovulation, menstruation and sperm production.
