Most couples are able to become pregnant after at least one year of trying. Those who cannot, or who suffer from repeated miscarriages, may be infertile. Over 7 million women in the US have difficulty getting pregnant, although the issue is commonly due to male factors. Infertility problems may be a result of not enough sperm being produced or the inability of the sperm to reach the egg and fertilize it.
In women, the issue is usually caused by ovulation disorders, but may also be the result of blocked fallopian tubes or uterine fibroids. Fertility can also be affected by certain life factors such as age, stress and alcohol consumption. Infertility can be a troubling issue for couples trying to start a family. There are several treatment options available to help treat this condition.
