Bringing Parenthood Dreams Come Live

If you and your partner are struggling to have a baby, you're not alone!

Infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year for most couples. Infertility may result from an issue with either you or your partner, or a combination of factors that prevent pregnancy. Fortunately, there are many safe and effective therapies that significantly improve your chances of getting pregnant.

You probably don't need to see your health care provider about infertility unless you have been trying regularly to get pregnant for at least one year.

Women should talk with a care provider earlier, if they:

Are age 35 or older and have been trying to conceive for six months or longer

  • Are over age 40

  • Have irregular or absent periods

  • Have very painful periods

  • Have known fertility problems

  • Have been diagnosed with endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease

  • Have had multiple miscarriages

  • Have undergone treatment for cancer

  • A low sperm count or other problems with sperm

  • A history of testicular, prostate or sexual problems

  • Undergone treatment for cancer

  • Small testicles or swelling in the scrotum

  • Others in your family with infertility problems

Causes of male infertility:
