Infertility is not just about the woman. About one-third
of infertility cases are caused by women's problems and
another one-third caused by men's problems. The other
one-third are caused by a mixture of male and female
problems or those that are unknown.2

Approximately 85-90% of infertility cases are treated
with drug therapy or surgical procedures. Fewer than 3%
need advanced reproductive technologies like in vitro
fertilization (IVF). (www.asrm.org) 4
