What Is Infertility?
Infertility is defined as the condition in which a couple could not conceive after 12 months of regular sexual intercourse without using contraception. This condition may be due to either male or female factors, or both.
Age is another major contributing factor. A woman’s natural fertility decreases by 1% every year after she reaches 35 years old. In general, it becomes harder for a woman to conceive after 35. Smoking, alcohol and obesity are the other factors that may also affect the chances of pregnancy.
