WHO (World Health Organisation) definition of infertility is “failure to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse”. Generally, it is recommend couples seek medical advice if they have not conceived after 12 months of unprotected intercourse, provided the female partner’s age is less than 35. If she is 35 or older, it is actually recommend the couple seek medical attention after 6 months of trying. The older one gets, the longer it takes to get pregnant, the longer one waits, the older one gets – a classic “Catch -22” situation.
