- This research describes the results that have been obtained from the alpha particles after carrying out the present study. The study was conducted on 60 urine samples taken from women, who were either infertile, had weak fertility. The age of those women ranged between (21-43) years. They further belonged to different locations in Iraqi Kurdistan region. The the main of track densety and concentration result obtained was 20.884 track mm?2 and 0.330 ppm in Sulaimania, and The the main of track density and concentration result obtained was 23.457 track mm?2 and 0.0.371ppm in Erbil which is near The higher concentration and the annual effective dose values were calculated for all women. Such a step was done by examining 20 ml of the women's urine samples.. The range of alpha particles in the surface of urine samples and CR-39NTDs was calculated using SRIM program. The average absorption of doses was 0.4754 mSvy-1, which is lower than the normal level, 3-10 mSvy-1l,  reported by the ICRP. This denotes that there is no evidence of health problems.

Key words: infertility in women, Urine, Iraqi Kurdistan region , Alpha particles
