As we mentioned in previous articles, infertility is defined as the inability of a couple to conceive after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse. It effects over 5 million couple alone in the U. S. and many times more in the world. Because of an unawareness of treatments, only 10% seeks help from professional specialists.
