There are about 10 million cases of infertility in India every year. So, infertility is very common and it is nothing to be scared about or ashamed of. It is also important to understand the being infertile doesn’t mean that you are sterile—unable to have a child ever. Being infertile is defined as being unable to conceive despite having regular sex without birth control for one year.
It is possible that both the male & female are infertile; this case represents 20% of all situations. While in 65% cases either the male or female is infertile. In rest of the cases the cause is not known.
