What is infertility?

Many people come to us at Harvest Fertility and ask this very question. Is there definition. Yes, there is. Infertility is the inability to conceive / get pregnant after one year of regular intercourse. One year is the point in time when an medical evaluation is initiated.

There are exceptions to this:

  1. No periods or irregular periods—immediate workup as woman may not be ovulating.
  2. Age over 35 to 40—6 months as conception is lower after age 35.
  3. Approximately one third of infertility is due to the male, one third due to the female and one third a combination of male and female factors.
