Infertility

Infertility is defined as the inability to achieve pregnancy after one year of regular unprotected intercourse (six months if the woman is over 35). The most recent estimates indicate infertility affects more than 7.3 million Americans, which represents 1 in 6 couples in their childbearing years. While infertility can be an emotionally uncertain and frustrating journey, it can often be successfully treated. The majority of patients who complete recommended treatment for infertility ultimately succeed in having a child.2 For more information, call toll-free 1-866-LETS-TRY (1-866-538-7879) or visit www.FertilityLifeLines.com.
