Infertility is relatively common; it occurs in about 1 in 8, or 12 percent of reproductive age couples. Fortunately, with help from today's fertility treatments and advanced reproductive technologies, more than 85 percent of couples with fertility problems will get pregnant.
Many couples will conceive with "first level" infertility treatments such as fertility drugs, lifestyle changes or intrauterine insemination (IUI). The vast majority will not require advanced technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).
The type of infertility treatment depends upon the cause(s) of infertility including the presence of male infertility. Other factors, including a woman’s age, her prior surgical history, or prior fertility treatment history also help to guide a given treatment option.
If you are having difficulty getting pregnant, one of the most positive steps you can take is contacting a qualified fertility specialist. The reproductive process is very complex and specialists (Reproductive Endocrinologists) undergo years of advanced training that allow them to deliver the best infertility care possible. Appropriate fertility tests can help determine the exact cause(s) of a couple's issues in trying to conceive and the best course of treatment for success.
