Infertility (cont.)

Fertility Prognosis

For most couples (up to 90%), a cause for the infertility is found. Pregnancy occurs with the use of fertility drugs or corrective surgery in up to 60% of infertile couples, once they are evaluated and treated. Advanced techniques such as surgery, insemination, or in vitro fertilization can help even more couples achieve pregnancy.
