  One in six couples (17%) trying to get pregnant will experience some degree of infertility
     

INFERTILITY

Infertility means not being able to become pregnant after a year of trying. If a woman keeps having miscarriages, it is also called infertility. Lots of couples have infertility problems. About a third of the time, infertility can be traced to the woman. In another third of cases, it is because of the man. The rest of the time, it is because of both partners or no cause is found.

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).


What things increase a woman's risk of infertility?

These include:
  • Age
  • Stress
  • Poor Diet
  • Athletic Training
  • Being Overweight or Underweight
  • Smoking
  • Excess Alcohol use
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • Health problems that cause hormonal changes, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome and primary ovarian insufficiency

Drugs or surgery are common treatments. Happily, two-thirds of couples treated for infertility go on to have babies.
