In general, it is appropriate to see a physician for infertility after 12months of trying to get pregnant on your own. The appropriate amount of timeto try on your own can be longer, or shorter than one year. For example, ifyou are only 25 years old and feel that you want to give it more time to occurnaturally you might try for another 6 to 12 months. You also might want toseek medical help for fertility issues without waiting for a year of trying onyour own if you have a condition that is a known risk factor for infertility,such as irregular menstrual cycles, endometriosis, previous tubal pregnancy,PCOS - polycystic ovary syndrome, etc.

A healthy fertile woman has a uterus and ovaries with eggs. The uterus isconnected to the ovaries by two fallopian tubes. Her fertile partner makeshealthy sperm in his testicles which is then expelled in adequate numbersduring ejaculation. This is just the beginning - much more is required toconceive a child.

IVF literally means "fertilization outside of the body". Sperm from the maleare combined with the female's eggs in a petri dish (round glass dish) wherefertilization occurs.
Sperm for IVF can be collected from the spouse, or in cases of severe maleinfertility, from a donor or using intracytoplasmic injection (ICSI /IVF).
ICSI is often used to obtain sperm from men with very poor sperm counts or insome cases, no sperm in the ejaculate. The eggs can also be from the spouse orin cases of poor egg quality or ovarian failure from a donor.

Infertility affects about one in seven couples of childbearing age. Current statistics show that about 35% will be female related, 35% will be male related, 20% will be a combined problem and the remaining 10% will be unexplained. Consequently, it is crucial to treat both the woman and man when assessing the infertility work-up phase of treatment.

In a normal menstrual cycle, just one egg/oocyte each month develops and matures. The egg matures with a fluid filled structure on the ovary called a "follicle" which can be seen on ultrasound. In an ART cycle, ovulation induction medications (typically daily self-administered injections) are used to stimulate the ovaries so that multiple follicles (eggs) will develop.
