It affects nearly 5.3 million people in the United States mainly of the people of reproductive age. It could be treated with therapies such as medication or surgery. There are two types of infertility:

1. Hypo fertile couples that face trouble to conceive and their fertility is not the ideal and have problems with timing but they can conceive with the help of special treatment. Examples are any man having low sperm count and woman having endometriosis.

2. Sterile couples are not able to conceive without the help of any medical or surgical treatment. For example, man has not enough sperm to fertilize the ova or the woman has blocked fallopian tubes.

Reasons for female infertility:

Factors that contribute to infertility are malfunctioning of the reproductive system or inability to release a healthy ovum in the fallopian tube. Other reasons such as endometriosis, infection or blocked tubes also lead to infertility.
