Female and Male Factors involved with Infertility and Risk Factors

Infertility is the lack of frequent unprotected sex for at least one year. About 1/3rd of infertility is due to female factors, and other one-third is due to both female and male factors.

Many treatments depend on the cause of infertility. Many infertile couples become pregnant without treatment. In such a situation, you should consult the best fertility specialist in Chennai!
