Certain health conditions can cause infertility. Uterus conditions including uterine fibroids and endometrial polyps can cause infertility. According to a statement released by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital of Schleswig-Holstein of Germany, endometrial polyps causes infertility in 2 - 3% of women.
Irregular lifestyle is also a major cause of infertility. According to a study, poor nutrition, obesity, underweight, hard physical labor and drug abuse cause infertility.
