What is Infertility

As per the World Health Organization (WHO), infertility is “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse”.

In layman’s term, if the couple has been trying to get clinically pregnant for a year or more with unprotected intercourse and yet failing, they may be infertile.

The disease is prevalent in both women and men, affecting them equally. According to a 2015 research paper, 15 percent of the couples globally, which accounts for 48.5 million couples, are affected by infertility.
