What is Infertility?

Infertility is the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse or the inability to carry a pregnancy to term. This definition is reduced to six months for women over 35, those with a history of painful periods, irregular cycles, pelvic inflammatory disease and miscarriages, and couples whose male partner has a low sperm count. 10 percent of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15-44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
