Infertility FAQs

Below, you will find some commonly asked questions about infertility and our expert answers.

Q: What is infertility?

A: Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse for couples under the age of 35, or after six months for couples over the age of 35. It can affect both men and women and can have various causes, including hormonal imbalances, structural issues, reproductive disorders, or a combination of factors.

Q: When should I seek medical help for infertility?

A: If you have been actively trying to conceive without success for the recommended duration (one year or six months, depending on your age), it is advisable to seek medical help. Our experienced healthcare providers at Harmony Integrative Medicine can evaluate your fertility concerns, perform necessary tests, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Q: What are the common causes of infertility in women?

A: Infertility in women can be caused by various factors, including:
  1. Ovulation disorders: Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or hormonal imbalances can disrupt regular ovulation.
  2. Fallopian tube blockage or damage: This can result from pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, or previous surgeries.
  3. Uterine abnormalities: Structural issues with the uterus, such as fibroids or polyps, can interfere with implantation.
  4. Age-related decline in egg quality and quantity.
  5. Autoimmune disorders or certain chronic conditions affecting fertility.

Q: What are the common causes of infertility in men?

A: Infertility in men can be attributed to various factors, including:
  1. Low sperm count: Insufficient sperm production can reduce the chances of fertilization.
  2. Abnormal sperm morphology: When sperm have unusual shape or structure, it can affect their ability to reach and fertilize the egg.
  3. Problems with sperm motility: If sperm have poor motility (movement), they may struggle to reach the egg.

  5. Genetic conditions or certain chronic illnesses impacting fertility.
