Infertility is defined as a failure to become pregnant even after one year of trying to get pregnant. For women who haveectopic pregnancy. In case a woman has the pregnancy signs but is not able to stay pregnant, then also she could be infertile. This can happen if there are physical problems with the uterus. Uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous clumps of tissue on walls of the uterus, can be another reason.
Apart from the medical reasons, lifestyle of woman can also affect her pregnancy. It could happen that she is waiting for some pregnancy sign, but nothing happens. This will happen when she takes too much stress. Poor diet, athletic training, smoking and drinking, being overweight or underweight or age can also be the factors for women’s infertility.
Treatment of Infertility
In case you have tried for a year but are not able to see any pregnancy symptoms, you must consult your doctor to check the issue of infertility. If you are in twenties, you might consider waiting, but if both partners are in mid or late thirties then you must seek professional help. Infertility is not permanent.

For Men – In case of sexual problems, doctors help men deal with impotence and premature ejaculation through behavioral therapy and/or medicines. In case of too few sperms, surgery can correct the problem. Antibiotics can also help clearing infections that affect the sperm count. A block in a man’s system is the reason for no sperm in the semen. This can be corrected by surgery. Changing lifestyle along with medications can cure infertility caused because of lifestyle issues.

Some common medicines used to treat infertility in women are Clomiphene citrate, Repronex, Pergonal, Gonal-F, Follistim, Metformin etc. However, consult with your doctor to understand the possible dangers, benefits, and side effects of these medicines.
