What is Infertility and What Causes It?

One of the main focuses of National Infertility Awareness Week (April 24 – May 1) is creating awareness. Sometimes, understanding infertility and explaining it to others can be challenging so we try to offer a simple description for an often complex disease. Infertility occurs when a couple has unprotected intercourse for one year without conception. Around 15 percent of all couples that try to conceive over a 12 month period will not succeed. Forty percent of women have problems such as damaged Fallopian tubes, endometriosis, advanced age, ovulation problems and hormone imbalances. Forty percent of the time it is due to the male caused by hormone imbalances, a scrotal varicose vein, obstruction, infections, chronic medical conditions and antibodies. The remaining 20 percent of couples have issues on both sides. For more information, please call 239-275-8118 or visit www.dreamababy.com. A visit to a reproductive endocrinologist is a good first step to diagnosing, understanding and treating your condition.
