Getting pregnant may seem simple, but the act of conceiving a child can often be very difficult. It depends on many bodily functions and systems being in good condition in both the male and the female, all of which must happen in the right sequence and at the right time.
Consider that the average woman of reproductive age only has a 20 percent chance of getting pregnant in any month of trying. And if there are any conditions that hamper male or female reproductive systems, the chances are much worse.
Infertility, defined as not conceiving after 12 months of having sex on a regular basis with no contraception, affects as many as 1 in 8 couples. Causes can include:
- Lifestyle issues
- Male medical conditions
- Female medical conditions
- Genetic issues
- Unexplained issues
