Infertility

InfertilityMost experts define infertility as not being able to get pregnant after at least one year of trying. Women who are able to get pregnant but then have repeat miscarriages are also said to be infertile. About 12 percent of all women aged 15 to 44 have infertility problems.

Infertility is not just a women’s problem. Only one third of infertility cases are due to female factors. One third is due to male factors and the other third is due to a combination of both male and female issues.

Problems with ovulation account for the majority of the issues in women. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. Factors that also affect women’s fertility include: stress, smoking, being over or under weight, alcohol, STDs, poor diet, some medications, etc.

If you are trying to get pregnant, tell your physician. If you’ve had difficulties, he/she may be able to provide potential treatments.
