Infertility 101

Infertility 101

Infertility is defined as an inability to achieve a pregnancy after one year of trying (or six months if a woman is 35 or older). Women you can get pregnant but can’t stay pregnant are also considered part of the infertility community.

About 10 percent of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15-44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While often considered a matter of women’s health, infertility affects men and women equally and while many others fall under the unexplained infertility category where both male and female reproduction appears normal.
