Learn More About Infertility

Infertility can be caused by problems with either the man's or the woman's reproductive system, or both. Some conditions are hormonal in nature, and others are structural problems in the reproductive organs that may require surgical repair or “bypass” alternatives (e.g. in vitro fertilization).

Half of all couples tested for a cause of infertility are affected by a problem with the woman's fallopian tubes or uterus or her ability to ovulate. About one-third of infertility is caused by problems in the male reproductive tract. In some couples, both partners have problems that are contributing to their infertility.

“Hope is a strange invention –
A Patent of the Heart –
In unremitting action
Yet never wearing out....”

- Emily Dickinson
