Infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant (conceive) after one year (or longer) of unprotected sex. It is usually not the natural state of a healthy adult. Men and women both can have fertility problem. Fertility in women is known to decline steadily with age, whereas in men the infertility can generally related to poor lifestyle, smoking and alcohol consumption. In about 20% of infertile couples, both partners have fertility problems, and in about 15% of couples, no cause is found after all tests have been done. This is known as unexplained infertility. Fertility treatments often include medications that help with hormones and ovulation, sometimes combined with minor surgical procedures.
