Anovulation

The absence of ovulation.

Blocked or Scarred Fallopian Tubes

If the fallopian tubes are blocked, it can cause an ectopic pregnancy or prevent conception from occurring altogether.

Endometriosis

A condition in which normal endometrial tissue grows and expands abnormally both in and outside of the uterus.

Hormone Level Deficiency

The hormones luetenizing hormone, progesterone, estrogen, prolactin and follicle stimulating hormone play a key role in the reproductive cycle. If any of these hormones are too low or too high it, can hinder conception.

LUFS (Luteinized Unruptured Follicle Syndrome)

This condition is where a woman's body produces all the signs of ovulation without actually releasing an egg.

Luteal Phase Defect

This condition occurs when the time from ovulation to menstruation is less than 10 days. This condition will not support a pregnancy. Some of the causes are low progesterone, high prolactin and insufficient uterine lining.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

This is a condition in which the ovaries are masked with many small cysts, which prevents ovulation.
