Infertility is the inability to achieve pregnancy after one year of unprotected intercourse. Infertility is common! You are not alone. FACT – One in six couples struggle to conceive. There are multiple reasons for a decline in fertility.
Most common causes of female infertility are:
- Ovulation Disorders
- Tubal Disease
- Cervical Factor
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
Here is the kicker ladies! It’s not just you…there are also male factors contributing to a couple’s infertility.
Male factor infertility can be caused by many underlying issues, including:
- Low sperm count
- Hormonal issues
- Anatomic problems
- Erectile dysfunction
Gentleman, do not be afraid to discuss your concerns with your partner and a health care provider. One in ten men will experience male infertility. That is why having a semen analysis is a key component to understanding the needs of each couple.
Infertility is experienced equally by men and women. Forty percent of the time infertility is the result of a male factor source; while in 40% of couples it is the result of a female factor. In 20% of infertility cases, there are both male and female factors involved.
