Frequently Asked Questions

1) What is the definition of infertility?


Most experts define infertility as not being able to get pregnant after one year of trying or not being able to get pregnant after six months of trying if you are 35 or older. Women who are able to get pregnant, but are unable to stay pregnant because of repeated miscarriages may also be considered to be infertile. About 10 percent of women ages 14 to 44 in the United States have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
