Why is a mule infertile?
A donkey and a mule have different chromosome numbers. When meiosis occurs (the creation of egg and sperm) the chromosome numbers halve and half of the genetic material is given to each of the two new cells created. However in the case of mule, their normal body cells have an uneven chromosome number so this cannot occur, therefore they can't make eggs or sperm

It is most common when two organisms of different species attempt to reproduce. The combination of genes is usually not fully functional meaning that the offspring is unable t…o reproduce itself.

Endometriosis occurs when endometrial cells invade the pelvic cavity outside the uterus and continue to grow. These lesions or masses can be all different sizes and several di…fferent. The ovaries are one of the most common sites for the lesions to occur. These lesions are capable of distorting the large intestine, ovaries and fallopian tubes. Due to these complications, it can cause bowel problems and infertility According to the Mayo Clinic, infertility is the most common complication of endometriosis. Approximately one-third to one-half of patients diagnosed with endometriosis has difficulties becoming pregnant. The endometrial lesions can interfere with the egg's ability to travel from the ovary, to the fallopian tubes and implantation as well. Another reason for impaired fertility is that the adhesions surrounding the uterus, pull it into a fixed, retoverted position. They can also interfere with conception itself. The lesions can block the path of the sperm and prevent it from ever reaching the egg to fertilize it. Despite these obstacles, many women with endometriosis are able to get pregnant The fertility rates for women with a mild case of endometriosis without therapy are seventy-five percent. Because the fallopian tubes are often distorted and harmed from the endometrial lesions, women who suffer from severe cases of endometriosis often find it more difficult to conceive. For those who have severe cases of endometriosis, their fertility rate ranges from about thirty to forty percent. Surgery and ovulation induction are methods that are often used to help increase a woman's chance of becoming pregnant.
