In the United States approximately 15-20 percent of married couples will experience some degree of infertility.
This means that one in six couples will need professional assistance.
A diagnosis of infertility, however, does not mean that becoming pregnant is impossible.
To completely evaluate the reproductive potential of a couple, the physician must see the couple together to facilitate treatment.
Infertility can be a multi-factor problem, where several conditions when presented alone are not so important but when added together could markedly influence the reproductive potential of a couple.
Therefore, a systematic, simultaneous basic evaluation should be implemented on both spouses.
Alan Martinez, MD is here to discuss your fertility options and what is best for your individual situation.
