Infertility is a couple?s inability to conceive a child after 12 months of unprotected sex. It is widely assumed that infertility has more to do with women rather than men, however it is not so. Estimates suggest that 30% of infertility is caused by male factors, another 30% is caused by female factors and the remaining 40% is caused by a combination of female and male factors. Men also suffer from infertility due to genetic reasons, lifestyle, hormonal imbalance, and age. Learn everything about infertility and ivf at http://www.rotundaivf.com

General Surgeon Dr. Rajinder Bajoria's  Response
Infertility is defined as the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Infertility may also be refereed to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility,
infertility is not always a woman's problem. Both women and men can have problems that cause infertility. About one-third of infertility cases are caused by woman's problems. Another one third of fertility problems are due to the man. The other cases are caused by a mixture of male and female problems or by unknown problems.Disclaimer

Infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant after at least one year of trying. Women who are able to get pregnant but then have repeat miscarriages are also said to be infertile. No, infertility is not always a woman's problem. In only about one-third of cases is infertility due to the woman. In another one third of cases, infertility is due to the man. The remaining cases are caused by a mixture of male and female factors or by unknown factors.
