Top diagnoses: Top reasons: 1) male infertility, tied with 2) female ovulatory dysfunction, followed by 3) tubal disease (female.) 'infertility' is defined by unprotected intercourse for one year. This is based on observing 85% of normal couples conceive in that time. Your luteal phase is fine. good wishes.
