Fertility is the ability to get pregnant, to conceive and have children. Subfertility is when a person's chances to get pregnant are decreased. Infertility is when a person cannot conceive, cannot get pregnant. A couple is typically suspected as being subfertile when they are unable to get pregnant after 12 months of trying, though many will still get pregnant within the next 12 months. Fertility treatments may be able to help a person who is subfertile or infertile get pregnant. Sterility is a complete lack of fertility, and should not be confused with infertility. A person who is sterile has no potential to produce offspring ever, while a person who is infertile may be able to get pregnant with treatment or over time.
