Whereas any parent may be responsible for infertility, women are mostly on the receiving end before the problem is identified.

What is Infertility
Infertility is the lack of ability to sire after twelve months of trying for women below 35 and six months for women above 35. Pregnancies ending in stillbirth or miscarriage are also signs of infertility in women of all age brackets.
While the risk of infertility spreads evenly across both sexes, women in infertile relationships bear the guilt and blame after fruitless attempts. Recent studies show that in one-third of infertile cases, women account for one-third, men comprise one-third, while both couples and unknown causes account for an additional one-third of the cases.
Causes of Infertility
In women, infertility results from complications related to ovulation. For every menstrual cycle, the ovaries release eggs for fertilization. Women unable to produce viable eggs for fertilization cannot get pregnant.
Infertility may also arise from deformities like clogged fallopian tubes altering the function and structure of female reproductive organs.
Other gynecological conditions increasing the risk of infertility include:
· Uterine septum
· Endometrial polyps
· Uterine fibroids
· Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Medical conditions responsible for infertility in women may also include diabetes, thyroid disease, and elevated prolactin (hormone regulating lactation).
