Infertility facts. There are some things that are clearly defined, such as how frequently infertility affects couples- one in eight. Or that even in a couple who has completely normally functioning reproductive systems, the chances of becoming pregnant between the ages of 29 and 33 are only 20-25%. Male infertility accounts for one third of all fertility challenges, and it’s virtually identical for women. That leaves one third of all infertility problems unexplained (idiopathic).
How common is it that women seek out fertility treatment? Very common. To the number of 7.4 million women.
Becoming pregnant depends on seeking appropriate medical treatment for a medical condition. Like all medical conditions, infertility is treatable and a high percentage of those seeking fertility treatment will go on to be successful in having a baby.
Make an appointment with a board-certified Reproductive Endocrinologist who cooperates with the CDC (Center for Disease Control) to ensure that you are getting the best possible care.
