    For women, ovarian ageing is a very common reason for seeking fertility treatment but conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Endometriosis are common causes of female infertility. Tubal blockage usually from a previous pelvic infection and other causes of ovulatory dysfunction besides PCOS can occur as well. Sometimes we are not always able to establish a cause very easily - so called “unexplained infertility” For men, it’s all about being able to produce good quality sperm in sufficient concentration, strong fast swimmers and enough normal looking sperm to get the job done. For couples trying naturally men also have to be able to get the sperm where it needs to be, so issues like low libido and erectile dysfunction can have an impact here.
