Infertility

 

Infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year for most couples. Infertility may result from an issue with either of the partner or a combination of factors that prevent pregnancy. Infertility in men can be due to low sperm count, low sperm mobility, hormone imbalance, abnormal sperm, obesity or any diseases like genetic disorders, mumps, anemia, etc. Infertility in women can be due to age, obesity, hormonal imbalance, mental stress, ovulation disorders, endometriosis, etc. Treatment will depend on many factors, including the age of the person who wishes to conceive, how long infertility has lasted, personal preferences, and their general state of health.
