According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, infertility can be defined as “the diminished ability or the inability to conceive and have offspring.” Infertility is also defined in specific terms as “the failure to conceive after a year of regular intercourse without contraception.” Over the last ten years, the number of couples seeking infertility treatments has risen dramatically. This phenomenon can be attributed not only to increased infertility issues, due in part to later childbearing, but also to improving techniques, technology and results.
Treatment options include:
- Fertility Drugs
- Artificial Insemination
- In Vitro Fertilization
- Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection or ICSI
