Why infertility is very common these days

Quite frequently we come across couples going through a hard time conceiving a baby. Many a times, they are from our very close family and friends. And unfortunately, a lot of times, we ourselves go through this trauma. And with the changing times, the cases are alarmingly on the increase.

So, why is it that infertility is so common these days? Let’s have a look at the top factors aiding infertility in contemporary population:

Changing Lifestyle

Modern lifestyle is one of the top most factors which answer for infertility in both men and women. Consumption of unhealthy food regularly and dramatic reduction of physical activities in day to day life contributes a lot of declining health of people, including reproductive health.

Additionally, stress in modern day population is more than ever recorded earlier. Work and lifestyle related stress contributes greatly in declining chances of conceiving in women and sperm count in men.

Planning past fertile period

With career as first priority of men and women, planning a baby is often pushed for future. But unfortunately, our biological bodies aren’t designed for this. There’s a certain window when a woman or man is most fertile and after a certain limit, the window starts almost closing. While a man can produce fertile sperm till quite late, for a woman, chances get rare after the age of 35.

Wrong or excessive usage of birth control measures

It is important for couples to carefully choose their birth control measure especially when they are adopting it for a long period of time. For example, taking birth control pills for long period can affect the fertility of the woman concerned.

As an alternative, you can choose other less harmful, no side effect methods like condoms, etc. You should always consult your doctor before you decide on this.
