Infertility is a disease. It is defined as the failure to achieve a successful pregnancy after 12 months or more of appropriate, timed unprotected intercourse or therapeutic donor insemination. Infertility is common and can result from a number of causes. An infertility evaluation should start with medical history and a focused physical examination of both partners. The initial evaluation consists of semen analysis, documentation of ovulation, and assessment of tubal patency. Testing for ovarian reserve, uterine factors, and male factor should be tailored to each individual case. An appropriate management plan can be developed following the fertility evaluation. All couples should be counseled to maximize natural fertility. Couples should be aware of their prognosis and options in family building, including adoption and third-party reproduction.
