Infertility is a situation in which a couple is unable to get pregnant maximum after 1 year of having consistent, unprotected sex. When we use the word “couple” , there is no difference between women and men and infertility can affect both of them. In case of female infertility, a woman is diagnosed as infertile if without having control she was not successful in getting pregnant. On the other hand, male infertility is a case in which a man has low amount of sperm or his sperm are not healthy enough or does not have the mobility to combine with a woman’s egg.
