Infertility affects more than 15% of couples trying to have a baby. This figure is increasing as couples delay starting a family.
The goals of evaluating infertility are to:
- Find a cause
- Present a realistic prognosis
- Provide treatment options.
Pregnancy is a complicated process that depends on many factors:
- The production of healthy sperm and ova
- Patent fallopian tubes
- A genetically healthy embryo
- Implantation and growth.
