Lifestyle factors like smoking, alcohol use, stress, and being overweight can also negatively impact fertility for both genders. Age is also an important factor, as fertility starts to naturally decline in the mid-30s.

The good news is that thanks to an array of modern fertility treatments like IVF, ICSI, and egg/sperm freezing, many couples facing infertility are still able to successfully have children. This field of medicine is continuously advancing.
