In men, these include environmental and hormonal factors that affect the production of healthy, motile sperm and normal semen, as well as blockages that affect delivery of sperm.
In women, the variables are varied as she plays a greater role in reproduction. First, one of the organs involved in reproduction may be absent, malformed or non-functional. Second, the organs may be normal, but the complex feedback system that is necessary to support follicular development, ovulation and implantation of the fertilized egg may be disrupted.
