Infertility is a condition in men and women who cannot conceive a baby together after at least one year of frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse. Both male and female factors can contribute to infertility. Infertility is common: about one in seven couples have problems conceiving. The good news is that, with appropriate treatment, as many as two out of three couples have children together.
