Occupational Hazards – chemicals and radiation
It may surprise you, but certain chemicals can increase your risk of infertility. This particularly applies to women who work in factories or other jobs where there is an ongoing exposure to various industrial chemicals and pollutants. Some examples of hazardous chemicals that are associated with possible menstrual irregularities and/or infertility include pesticides, solvents (like those used in the dry cleaning industry and in paint thinners), heavy metals (cadmium, lead, mercury), and anesthetic gases. The manner in which these harmful chemicals affect your fertility is not always clear, but it is known that extensive exposure can be harmful.

Besides environmental chemicals, another potential occupational hazard is radiation. At this time, it is unknown if low-dose radiation, like that emitted from medical imaging machines (x-ray machines for example) can contribute to infertility. However, high amounts of radiation on a long term basis (like from radioactive fallout) has been linked to an increased prevalence of infertility.

If you are having difficulty in achieving pregnancy and work with occupational hazards on a routine basis, speak with your doctor about the risk of toxicity from exposure.
