Decreasing cervical fluid- This leads to the lack of having fertile cervical mucus that further fails to protect the sperm and stops it from nourishing sperms. As a result, eggs don’t fertilize in women.

Fibroids or uterine disorders- There could be tumors inside uterus causing pain and inflammation in pelvic, vaginal bleeding or development of more fibroids. Usually fibroids are non-cancerous.
