Infertility is the inability to
get pregnant after one year of
trying. It is a common problem
that can affect 1 in 7 couples.
80% of couples having regular
sex should conceive within one
To get pregnant, there are several
processes that must happen. The
woman’s body must release an egg
from one of her ovaries (ovulation). This
egg must go through a fallopian tube
toward the womb. The man’s sperm
must travel through the vagina, womb
and go through the fallopian tube to
join with (fertilise) the egg. Then the
fertilised egg (embryo) must attach to
the inside of the uterus (implantation).
Anything that may hinder or interfere
with any of these steps may cause
infertility. In about 30 percent of
couples, no obvious causes of infertility
can be found.
