Most experts define unexplained infertility as not being able to become pregnant after a year or two of trying to have a baby. In order to become pregnant a woman must release an egg from one of her ovaries, and the egg must go through a fallopian tube towards the uterus. A man's sperm must fertilize the egg along the way. And the fertilized egg must attach to the inside of the uterus. Infertility can result from problems that interfere with any of these steps.

Roughly about 1 in 6 of all couples seek specialist help because of difficulty conceiving. Many couples who have been trying to conceive for only a year or two are normal, and will conceive without help. But there are some who will have a real cause and will need to be investigated.

Infertility in men is caused due to problems in producing sperm like producing too few sperm or none at all or even due to sluggish sperm movement. In rare cases, infertility in men is caused by a genetic disease such as cystic fibrosis or a chromosomal abnormality. Sometimes problems start due to illness or injury.

The number and quality of a man's sperm can be affected by his health and lifestyle, such as alcohol, drugs, toxins, smoking cigarettes, medication, radiation and chemotherapy and age.

There are many causes of infertility in women. Understanding the causes are obviously the key and there are a host of problems that can cause infertility in women. It is usually due to anovulation (the absence of ovulation), uterine abnormalities, blocked fallopian tubes, or immunological causes. Infertility in women has also been linked to aging, a history of pelvic inflammatory disease, and certain lifestyle behaviours as well as problems with intercourse and incompatibility between the sperm and the secretions at the neck of the womb (cervical hostility).

If you think you have fertility issues, the basic tests can be done by your GP, Doctors can also help you prepare your body for a healthy baby, and they can answer questions on fertility and give you advice on conceiving. If the tests given by your GP give no pointers to a specific cause, then it is sensible to ask to see a specialist

Infertility can be treated with surgery, medicine, assisted reproductive technology or artificial insemination. Quite often these are combined for effective treatment. Around 65% of couples who are treated for infertility are able to go on and have a baby.

There are a number of reasons that can affect fertility in any couple's attempt to have a successful pregnancy. If all health factors have been successfully ruled out, then stress can be the main contributor to an inability to conceive and have a successful birth. The stress of trying to become pregnant builds on the pre-existing stress of not getting pregnant, which often leads to guilt, self doubt and negative self talk.
