What is infertility?
It’s inability to have a child. In men it means their semen is not alive or active enough to reach the egg cell of a female. In women it may be caused by a range of factors. But how do you know you are infertile?
If a lady is under 35 and she has been having unprotected sex for one year, there might be a problem. If a woman is older, than in 6 months you should start seeking medical help. However, that does not mean that the problem is in the woman. It is more than possible that the man is the one to blame for the couple’s infertility, if the lady has sex with one partner only.
