Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant within a year (or 6 months for those 35 and over). This infertility checklist will help you find out which tests to do and find the cause for infertility. The most common causes of infertility are male factors, tubal disease, and ovulatory dysfunction. Infertility tests are done to help a couple find the possible reasons for infertility and how to treat it and improve the chances of getting pregnant.
