Infertility in women is defined as not getting pregnant after one year of having regular sexual intercourse without using birth control. National Infertility Association reports that about 12% percent of married women have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. About one-third of infertility is attributed to female partner, one-third to male, and the remaining one-third to both partners or is unexplained.
The common causes of female infertility may be attributed to inadequate levels of hormones, and problems with ovulation. Other factors that may affect fertility include: age, lifestyle, and health conditions. Treatment options will depend on the type of problem found.
