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.
What causes infertility in women?
- Blocked fallopian tubes due to pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, or surgery for an ectopic pregnancy.
- Physical problems with the uterus.
- Uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous clumps of tissue and muscle on the walls of the uterus.
