Infertility implies inability to conceive after having regular sexual intercourse for minimum 1 year without the use of contraception.

The first step in treatment of infertility should be to investigate and examine the etiology or underlying cause of the infertility. Because the treatment of infertility varies depending on the etiology. The chance of conception is usually 15-20% per the menstruation cycle. Accordingly, 85 out of 100 couples achieve this desire at the end of one-year period.

While male factors account for 40% of all infertility cases, the figure is 45% for female factors. Infertility is diagnosed in 15% of cases, although no female or male factor can be identified. This condition is referred as “idiopathic infertility”.
