Infertility may refer as the incapability for a couple to bring a successful pregnancy or achieve conception after at
least one year of unprotected, regular sexual intercourse. The male partner, female partner, or both may face the
problem related to infertility. However, Infertility is both curable and treatable.
A person, with infertility, has a reduced ability to have a child. It usually doesn't mean that the person is sterile -- that
is, physically unable to have a child ever. WHO believes that around 60-80 million couples in the world are infertile.
Males or females have equal chances to face any infertility-related problem. In somewhat one in five couples with
infertility issues, both the partners can have a contributing problem, moreover, in somewhat 15% of the couples, no
reason of infertility is understood even when all tests have been performed. These cases, which are beyond medical
understanding, are called as “Idiopathic or unexplained Infertility".
Infertility-related issues mostly bring the feelings of guilt, blame, or insufficiency. It is important to know that a man
having the infertility issues is no less than a man and woman having the infertility issues is no less than a woman. So,
there is no need of inferiority complex.
Mostly, couples facing these problems take infertility as a big crisis. However, not all of the infertility diagnoses in
the couples are a case finding of sterility. Maximum of 15% of all couples are Only infertile, and only 1% to 2% are
sterile. Most of the couples who seek help can eventually bear a child, either on their own or with medical assistance.
