Am I infertile?
About 85% of young, healthy heterosexual couples conceive after one year of trying, and about 93% are successful after two years. The standard definition of infertility is the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse. Today, this has been modified to take age into account, and now women over 35 may be considered infertile if they have failed to conceive after trying for six months. Some specialists halve that number to three months for women over 40. If you suspect you are infertile or are at risk for being infertile, make an appointment with Dr. Ramirez for an infertility evaluation.
