IN­FER­TIL­ITY IS A FE­MALE PROB­LEM

Fer­til­ity prob­lems can be com­plex be­cause there are so many fac­tors in­volved in get­ting preg­nant. A sim­ple way of look­ing at it is that for one-third of cou­ples, the issue is re­lated to the fe­male. For an­other third, the issue is re­lated to the male and for a fur­ther third, both part­ners have a fer­til­ity prob­lem. It is also im­por­tant to say that in some cases there is no obvious cause iden­ti­fied, known as un­ex­plained sub­fer­til­ity. It can be help­ful to have some ba­sic tests that may be re­as­sur­ing.
