1. Infertility occurs in 1 in 7 to 8 couples 2. 1/3 are female issues; 1/3 are male issues; 1/4 are a combination of both; 5-10% of time we can not identify a problem referred to as Unexplained Infertility 3. Most common cause are Tubal factors- 2nd are male issues- 3rd ovulation issues; and lastly uterine factors; cervical can be seen, but infrequently
