Female infertility is the inability of women to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term, due to one or more specific issues. It is believed that a woman suffers from infertility if, after a year of unprotected sex with a man capable of procreation, is not getting pregnant.
Female infertility can occur in several forms, including combined, when both woman and her partner have specific problems related to reproductive processes. Considering that semen analysis results (volume, motility and shape) are normal, then one of the following alternatives are true: either the couple is suffering from infertility unexplained by current means, or it is an idiopathic infertility (both partners are healthy, but pregnancy does not occur) or conception failure is due to the incompatibility of the spouses.
Infertility in women is caused by a multitude of factors that can be divided by the triggering factor and the impaired reproductive structure. Besides these physical factors, there are a number of factors related to psychological issues or lifestyle of women, who may adversely affect fertility. Female infertility can be caused by egg production problems, their motility and fertilizing, egg reserve failure, hormonal disorders, issues of attachment of the embryo in the uterine lining and its survival, fallopian or uterus tubes obstruction, cervical mucus hostility toward spermatozoa, some congenital abnormalities and some sexual dysfunction.
In about 90% of cases female infertility cases can be identified, but despite the progress of reproductive medicine, 10% of couples do not know the exact cause of the inability to achieve conception or gestational period. Infertility, in 30% of cases, is due of several causes, not just a single element. Very important to remember is that many diseases contribute to the development of infertility, the damage of the reproductive system component parts (fallopian tubes, uterus, ovary, endometrium) and interferes with the internal processes of ovulation, causing hormonal complications.

Reduce stress to increase fertility
Although the link between stress and fertility is unclear, many doctors say that stress plays an important role.
“There are not large data sets stating unequivocally connection, but more and more studies show that small samples of stress reduction methods have a favorable effect over fertility, and we believe it is only a matter of time until someone will put all the data together to prove once and for all the impact that stress has on the reproductive system,” said experts.
In a U.S. study, women who used assisted reproductive techniques were applied a relaxing massage to the feet before embryo transfer, the study authors believe that the results are encouraging.
Experts in stress study at the Harvard University showed that more women who tried to reduce the stress caused by infertility remained pregnant easily, achieving this due to relaxation techniques.
