Infertility is the inability to get pregnant after trying over for a long period. There are two types of infertility problems; one is primary infertility that refers to not getting conceived after one long year inspite of not using any birth control methods. But, in secondary infertility, the person will get pregnant once and later becomes impotent for the second pregnancy.

There may be numerous reasons for infertility, however, in men it occurs due to libido, varicocele, sperm damage or certain diseases. A woman may develop infertility due to problems in the ovulation, blockage in the fallopian tubules, abnormal uterus, and uterine fibroids. Other factors such as stress, poor nutrition, medications, other health issues, smoking, and alcohol consumption would also pose a risk of developing infertility.
