Infertility can have many causes. These causes of infertility could be physiological, anatomical or even psychological. Infertility can cause undue stress in the family. This can be true in many traditional families where children and birth are considered very important parts of a family life. In many instances, the infertility in women may be due to lifestyle changes.

There are various changes in the lifestyle that women have adopted as a norm and part of their life that can be a cause to the infertility. Some of these lifestyle changes that cause infertility are listed and explained below:

1. Decreased body weight: Women need to have a balanced meal and should have enough body weight if they will be able to have a baby. It is considered unsafe during pregnancy if the weight of the pregnant woman is less than the recommended. This is not the only factor to be considered, women who are very underweight have been found to be having a lesser chance of getting pregnant than women who are not very lean. Many adolescents go to extreme lengths to maintain their weight and this may cause infertility.

2. Obesity: Just like weightlessness, obesity can also cause problems of infertility in women. Women who are minimally overweight may not encounter any problems, but women who are grossly obese and overweight can be infertile.

3. Smoking and alcoholism: Smoking and alcoholism have also been associated with infertility. These are lifestyle changes that depend on the society a person lives in. In affluent families today where changes are happening in the culture, smoking and alcoholism in women are more common. This has had a major impact on the ability of women to become pregnant and have children. This is because of the fact that these habits along with substance abuse can cause a person to become impotent. These lifestyle changes have been the cause of infertility in many women around the world.

4. Sexually transmitted diseases: With increasing pre marital s*x and also affairs within a marriage, there is a higher risk of women being affected by s*xually transmitted diseases. This is seen in the high number of HIV victims all over the world. Infidelity and infertility can have a link because of the risk of contracting s*xually transmitted diseases.

5. Late marriage: Late marriages are also very common in the society. Previously marriage used to be a tradition that was important than anything else. Now, for women, career and studies have become more important. This has led to late marriages. When women are past their prime, the fertility decreases. So late marriages have been an increasing reason for women being infertile.

6. Lack of exercise: Lack of exercises is another important and major cause of infertility. A person has to have adequate exercises to be physically fit. Only when a person is physically fit will the person be able to have normal ability to function. Women are increasingly participating in desk jobs around the world, leading to a sedentary lifestyle. This has had an impact on their physical fitness leading to infertility.

These are the various lifestyle changes that have cause infertility in women. Lifestyle modifications are very important for women to be able to have children.
