What is infertility?
Infertility can be defined as failure to have babies. It is a condition of the reproductive system often diagnosed after a couple has had one year of unprotected, well-timed intercourse, or if the woman has suffered from multiple miscarriages. Infertility can be broken down into (i) male factor (40 per cent); (ii) female factor (40 per cent); and (iii) combination of the two or unexplained infertility (20 per cent). Infertility is tested, diagnosed and treated like any other disease. In some cases, it can be prevented; in others, it cannot be.
