Infertility is a disease of the reproductive system that impairs one of the body's most basic functions: the conception of children. It is defined in practical terms as a couple's inability to achieve pregnancy after a year of unprotected intercourse.
Infertility is a common problem, with more than 5 million couples in the United States dealing with these problems. Infertility affects one in every six couples who are trying to conceive. In at least half of all cases of infertility, a male factor is a major or contributing cause. This means that about 15% of all men in the United States who are attempting to conceive suffer from infertility.
