Infertility Facts Los Angeles

Infertility Overview

Eighty five to ninety percent of couples will become pregnant within one year of trying. The traditional definition of infertility therefore applies to the 10 to 15% of couples who do not conceive in that time. In some specific groups, such as women older than 34 years old, the evaluation for infertility should begin if no pregnancy has occurred after 6 months of trying.

The wide variety of specific causes of infertility can be divided into 4 broad categories:

  • Female factors – Ovulation dysfunction, blocked fallopian tubes, uterine abnormalities and others.
  • Male factors - Low sperm count, abnormal sperm morphology (shape) etc.
  • Unexplained – No specific cause is identified.
  • Other – Rare or unusual causes.
