Normally 75% of couples will achieve pregnancy within 6 months, 85% within one year and 90% within two years. 10-15% others are diagnosed with infertility.
Most common causes of infertility are male factors 1/3, female factors 1/3 and unexplained 1/3. If you present with infertility initially both of you will be required to attend the clinic and both of you will be investigated as a couple.
Common Cause of Infertility
The most common female cause is lack of ovulation or blockage of tubes. If ovulation is lacking, you may be given Clomid for induction of ovulation and you will be followed by follicle tracking. If however, you have tubal blockage due to any other cause you may have laparoscopy for checking on the causes like endometriosis or other tubal problems and may need IVF. Abnormality of the male factor may need assisted reproductive technique.
