Did you know that one in eight American couples will struggle with infertility when they try to have a baby? Infertility is a medical condition — not a lifestyle choice — and you are not alone. Many couples who struggle with fertility go on to have a healthy pregnancy with the right treatment.
For women under age 35, infertility is defined as one year of regular, unprotected sex without conception. For women over age 35, it’s six months of trying with no success.
To address infertility, we must first find out the causes. Common fertility tests include analyzing samples in the lab, performing imaging tests such as ultrasounds, and certain minimally invasive procedures like laparoscopy.
