Female infertility refers to infertility in female humans. Causes or factors of female infertility can basically be classified regarding whether they are acquired or genetic, or strictly by location. Although causes (or factors) of female infertility can be classified as acquired versus genetic, female infertility is usually more or less a combination of nature and nurture. Also, the presence of any single risk factor of female infertility (such as smoking, mentioned further below) does not necessarily cause infertility, and even if a woman is definitely infertile then the infertility cannot definitely be blamed on any single risk factor even if the risk factor is (or has been) present. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), Age, Smoking, Sexually Transmitted Infections, and Being Overweight or Underweight can all affect fertility.
