Infertility

Learn more about infertility to improve your chances of getting pregnant.

Primary infertility is defined as the inability for a couple to conceive a child after one year of unprotected intercourse with no results. Secondary infertility refers to couples who have previously conceived but have not been successful in achieving conception again. A woman may also be considered infertile if she gets pregnant but is unable to stay pregnant. The Centers for Disease Control reports that 10% of the female population in the US has trouble conceiving and/or staying pregnant.

Causes for infertility can be a result of problems with the male or the female reproductive system and significantly increases with age. Peak fertility for women occurs in her 20s but women are born with a finite number of eggs that decrease significantly after age 35 and then dramatically after age 40.
