Many causes: Infertility causes include lack of ovulation, tubes being blocked, not having intercourse at the fertile time, low or abnormal sperm counts and hormone levels too low to support a pregnancy. A gynecologist or infertility specialist can do the testing.

Many: There are so many different causes of infertility but 50% of those causes come from the female and 50% come from the male. The definition of infertility is > than one year of unprotected sex and > than 6 months if you are 35 or older. You should consult your gyn to discuss a basic work-up which includes a sperm test, check for ovulation, check that your tubes are open, hormone levels are normal.
