Infertility Defined

What Is Infertility?

A common, textbook definition of infertility is the "failure to conceive following one year of unprotected sexual intercourse." A more precise definition of infertility takes into account the age of the woman trying to conceive, as this is a crucial factor in this process: Infertility is the inability to conceive following one year of unprotected intercourse if under 35 years of age or six months if over 35.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to an individual or couple's inability to conceive, and it is important to consider all of these when first evaluating the situation.

The Fertility Evaluation

Understand Your Reproductive Health

Age & Fertility

At Pacific Fertility Center, we use a number of means to evaluate fertility health. In the case of female infertility, one of the first things we look at is a patient's age -- in particular, the age of her ovarian reserve or, put simply, her egg supply.

In addition to the age of the woman, there are a number of factors that can contribute to an individual or couple's inability to conceive.
