what causes infertility?

Basic Infertility: Many different causes contribute to infertility. There are male factors (sperm), ovary factors (the making and releasing of eggs), and factors that interfere with the sperm and egg joining (endometriosis, blockage in the tubes or uterus, etc). There are also less common and unknown factors. A careful evaluation by a GYN specialist can help most couples.
