Infertility is the inability to conceive a child (conceiving).

Infertility comes in two different forms:

  • Primary infertility describes the inability of a couple to conceive after at least one year of sexual activity without the use of contraception.
  • Couples who have had at least one successful pregnancy, but are now unable to do so, are said to have secondary infertility.


Numerous psychological and physical conditions can cause infertility.

Infertility in women

  • Once it connects with the lining of the uterus, a fertilized egg or embryo cannot live (uterus).
  • The uterine lining does not connect to the fertilized egg.
  • Eggs cannot be transferred from the ovary to the uterus.
  • Egg production is difficult for the ovaries.

Male infertility

  • A reduction in the number of sperm.
  • A barrier that makes it difficult to expel sperm.
  • Problems with the sperm.
