Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A20732
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Pregnancy chances depend on a lot of factors like lifestyle (smoking, alcohol consumption, stress levels etc), hormonal factors (hormonal derangements or imbalances), abnormal quality or quantity of sperms produced, problems with female reproductive system like problems in uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes or ovaries that could affect egg release or travel to uterus or prevent sperms from reaching egg etc, presence of infections, congenital or infancy time infection (orchitis, mumps) etc. The factors work together or individually affecting the fertility levels and occurrence of pregnancy. You should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for both you and your partner to what the underlying cause could be for infertility and get started on appropriate treatment to resolve it and help with getting pregnant.
Take care.
