Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term after 12 months of trying to conceive. If you are over the age of 35, the time of trying to conceive is reduced to 6 months. It is important to see a OB/Gyn specialist, or a Reproductive Endocrinologist, for a complete fertility work-up and diagnosis. Today around 10% of population requires help for conception. Both sexes are equal contributors and it affects all ethnicities and socioeconomic strata.
if you have been trying to conceive for sometime and have not been successful, it is the time to see a doctor and get a fertility workup done.
