Infertility is considered one of the global public health problems and during human history, it is also considered one of the unsolved problems of the continuous human race. This study aimed to collect and document the ethnopharmacological data on herbal remedies, which traditionally used by healers for the treatment of infertility in males and females.
Recently, a huge number of factors caused an increase in infertility levels among males and females, especially in developed countries. These factors include the increased use of contraceptives, rising maternal age, smoking, alcohol, genetic factors, pesticides, narcotics, rates of abortion, and critical economic situations. Besides that, an increase in male impotency could be due to the psychogenic factors, vascular disturbances, neurogenic disorders, endocrine system disturbances and drug treatment. This health care problem can lead to serious psychological disorders, severe stressful and depressing life for parents. In fact, this global problem ranked in the fourth position after the death of the mother, the death of father and unfaithfulness of partner.
Infertility or childlessness in most developing countries including Africa is gender biased with the female partner often cited as the cause of the problem. In many of these communities, women are target of psychological and physical abuse by their families and communities. Such an abuse can be in the form of marital instability, divorce, social isolation stigma, economic deprivation, and intimate partner violence. Bearing a child in Africa not only defines womanhood but also brings dignity and respect to the family as well as securing rights of property and inheritance. It also serves to guarantee the continuation of the family lineage and future social insurance against poverty in a region where social security schemes during old age are uncommon. Family and societal pressure to conceive and the increasing odds of reduced fertility due to aging, together with the inability to access high cost conventional medical therapies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and assisted reproductive technology (ART), may influence a woman’s decision to seek complementary or alternative health approaches such as herbal therapy in order to conceive.
What causes infertility in women?
(1) Ovulation problems
Most cases of infertility are caused by problems with ovulation. Ovulation is the release of the egg from the woman’s ovary, which occurs once per month, about 12–14 days before the first day of each menstrual period. Without ovulation, a woman cannot become pregnant. Ovulation problems can be caused by hormone imbalances from a variety of causes.
(2) Blocked fallopian tubes
Although less common, blocked fallopian tubes can also cause female infertility. To become pregnant, a woman’s egg must move from the ovary through the fallopian tube to the uterus. The fallopian tube is where the egg and sperm meet and fertilization occurs. If the fallopian tube is blocked due to infection, surgery, or other problems, then sperm cannot reach the egg to fertilize it.
Other less common causes of fertility problems in women can include physical problems with the uterus, or uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous tumors made of fibrous tissue and muscle cells that develop on the walls of the uterus.
What decreases a woman’s chance of becoming pregnant?
Being age 30 or older (at age 40 there is a big drop in the chance of being able to become pregnant).
Smoking, Heavy alcohol use (more than three to four drinks a day).
Stress, Poor diet, Diabetes., Too much athletic training, Being significantly overweight or underweight.
