MedlinePlus:33 Infertility means not being able to become pregnant after a year of trying. if a woman can get pregnant but keeps having miscarriages or stillbirths, that's also called infertility. infertility is fairly common. after one year of having unprotected sex, about 15 percent of couples are unable to get pregnant. about a third of the time, infertility can be traced to the woman. in another third of cases, it is because of the man. the rest of the time, it is because of both partners or no cause can be found. there are treatments that are specifically for men or for women. some involve both partners. drugs or surgery are common treatments. happily, many couples treated for infertility go on to have babies. nih: national institute of child health and human development

MalaCards based summary: Infertility is related to male infertility and oligospermia. An important gene associated with Infertility is SPAG1 (sperm associated antigen 1). The drugs bromocriptine and follitropin beta have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include ovary, testes and testis, and related mouse phenotype reproductive system.

CDC:3 In general, infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant (conceive) after one year of unprotected sex. Women who do not have regular menstrual cycles, or are older than 35 years and have not conceived during a 6-month period of trying, should consider making an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist—an infertility specialist. These doctors may also be able to help women with recurrent pregnancy loss—2 or more spontaneous miscarriages. Pregnancy is the result of a process that has many steps. To get pregnant—
