As it exists a wide range of causes, a low level of folate could play a crucial role.

Women and men experiencing fertility issues can present low folate availability, may present an MTHFR enzyme polymorphism.
In women, inadequate folate levels increase homocysteine levels in the blood and oxidative stress, one of the factors related to the pathogenesis of fertility disorders such as idiopathic infertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and endometriosis.
In men, folate is essential for spermatogenesis. Low folate levels in semen can be associated with poor sperm stability and DNA damage.
