  • Tubal Blockages: Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes can hinder the fertilization process.
  • Uterine Abnormalities: Structural issues with the uterus may affect implantation.
  • Age-related Factors: Fertility declines with age, particularly for women over 35.
  • Endocrine Disorders: Hormonal imbalances can disrupt the reproductive cycle.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Factors such as stress, obesity, and smoking can contribute to infertility.
