Infertility is usually diagnosed when a couple fails to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. Diagnosis and treatment require a thorough assessment of both partners. The extent and time course should be individualized i.e. more rapidly if the woman is over 35 years.

Common causes of infertility:


  • Failure to ovulate
  • Obstruction to Fallopian tubes
  • Disease of the lining of the uterus (endometriosis)
  • Decreased number of sperm
  • Decreased motility of sperm
  • Absence of sperm
Sportron recommends:


  • Men should avoid hot baths and tight pants as sperm formation is temperature dependant.
  • Success depends on the reason for infertility, if there is obstruction of the Fallopian tubes or no sperm count then no amount of nutritional supplements or loose clothing will help!
  • Appropriate assessment is essential
