If a couple is unable to achieve pregnancy following one year of unprotected sexual intercourse, or two or more miscarriages, it is recommended that patients seek medical evaluation and diagnosis by an infertility specialist. Many a time women face a lot of social stigma if after some time of marriage, the news of conception is not declared.
Data suggest that one in six couples (17%) who are trying to get pregnant will experience some degree of infertility. The causes of infertility can be numerous and can be attributed to problems with either the male or female reproductive systems. Medically speaking, Infertility affects both men and women, with only 40% of infertility diagnoses traced to the female partner and 20% traced only to the male partner. It is also a fact that in approximately 30% of infertility cases, a problem may exist in both the male and female partners. Other than this 10% of all couples experience unexplained infertility, wherein no specific cause can be identified in either of the partners.
However the fact of the matter is that this causes a lot of psychological pressure especially on the female partner, who is burdened with the entire responsibility of conceiving, irrespective of the problem with the male partner.
