Female Infertility

The most commonly used definition of infertility is the lack of pregnancy after 1 year of unprotected regular intercourse. Infertility affects 10-15% of all couples who are attempting to become pregnant.

The causes of infertility can be divided into four major categories: 1) the female factor [35%];
2) the male factor [30%]; 3) combined factors [20%]; and 4) unexplained infertility [15%].
Investigation of infertility necessitates the evaluation of both the male and female partners. There are several identified causes of female infertility.

The goals of care are the determination of any reversible causes of infertility and the initiation of appropriate treatments to maximize reproductive potential. The decision to undergo fertility treatment should be reached only after thorough consideration of the available treatments, potential outcomes (multiple births, failure to conceive), and expense, as well as the emotional and religious factors that may impact on this process.

The treatment depends on the underlying problem. Treatment modalities can be generally classified as medical, hormonal, surgical, or assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Often, a combination of modalities is utilized.
