Infertility

Definition of Infertility

The term Infertility applies to a couple who are not able to achieve conception in spite of regular unprotected intercourse.

Fertile women have a period of infertility during their menstrual cycle because their fertility period is limited to few days before ovulation and few days after , other than this time they are infertile for the rest of the month .

Types of Infertility

  • A- Primary infertility: failure to achieve conception after one year of regular unprotected intercourse.
    B- Secondary infertility: failure to achieve conception after 6 m of regular unprotected intercourse, if the couples previously had children.

So if the couple can’t achieve pregnancy for the first time after one year they should visit their gynecologist and after six months if they had children before. However women who are over 35 years old should visit their gynecologist if they failed to conceive after 6 months of regular unprotected sexual intercourse, as they have not much time to play with.

Also if the women got married to a new partner then they are regarded as a new couple with Primary Infertility, because the infertility is referred to the couple not to the individual.

About 85 % of couples will conceive naturally within one year if they have regular unprotected sex. However, the chance of becoming pregnant is much lower for older women.
20 % will conceive within one month.
70% will conceive within 6 month.
85 % will conceive within one year.
90 % will conceive within 18 month.
95 % will conceive within 2 year.

As the women get older, she become less fertile, so for women aged 35 years 94 % well get pregnancy after trying for 3 years.

The male’s age effect on fertility is unclear. Male factor represent 30% of infertility, female factor 50% (25% due to ovulation problem, 25 % due to tubal and other factors), 20% of infertility are unexplained without an identifiable causes.
