INFERTILITY 101

Infertility is the inability to conceive a child after one year of sexual intercourse without contraception. According to the Mayo Clinic, eighty five percent of all couples trying to conceive will become pregnant within one year. This leaves approximately 7 million, or 1 in every 6 couples, who have difficult conceiving and may need medical help to identify and treat the possible causes of infertility.

Mayo Clinic studies also show that 40% of all infertility cases may be attributed to the woman, 40% to the man, 10% both partners contribute, and 10% the cause is unexplained.
