Infertility is the inability to conceive, when woman cannot become pregnant, while having regular sex with her partner and without using contraceptives. Infertility may be caused by problems in woman as well as in man. So, if a couple cannot conceive, both partners should be tested by doctor. There is a number of different infertility treatments developed for men and women.
There is an established period for a couple to start suspecting infertility in one of the partners. If they are having sex for only few months there is no reason to trouble. The disease is likely to be found, if there is no pregnancy after one year of living together. Doctors usually advise to wait some time to couples which have smaller period. The exception is made only for couples where partners are 30 years and more. Waiting a year may be too long for them to have a healthy baby. They are usually prescribed infertility medication after six months.
Even after a year without pregnancy there is no reason to begin intense infertility treatments at once. May be the inability to conceive is caused by the factors not connected with health directly. Very often women cannot fertile, because they merely do not have sex in their ovulation time. The only thing needed in this case is to count the ovulation days.

But statistic is still optimistic providing that in majority of cases infertility treatments lead to successful pregnancy and childbirth.
