Did you know that? by Lucy Coleman
– Infertility is defined as he inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse or the inability to carry a pregnancy to live birth.
– A couple ages 29-33 with a normal functioning reproductive system has only a 20-25% chance of conceiving in any given month. After six months of trying, 60% of couples will conceive without medical assistance.
– Approximately 85-90% of infertility cases are treated with drug therapy or surgical procedures. Fewer than 3% need advanced reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization (IVF).
