Infertility

If you have been having sex for one year and not doing anything to prevent pregnancy, then you are considered infertile. Some couples just take longer to get pregnant, it doesn't mean there is any problem. If the woman is over 35, we recommend testing after 6 month, you don't have to wait a full year.

Is infertility hereditary?

Possibly

Infertility
Some forms of infertility are hereditary. For instance some forms of male infertility have genetic components that are automatically passed to male children (Y chromosome microdeletions). Endometriosis definitely has a hereditary component. PCOS also runs in families. And fragile X which can affect egg production is hereditary as well. The vast majority of time infertility is not hereditary.

Dr. Serena H. Chen answered:

What can cause infertility?

Multiple

Infertility
At age 44 many women are infertile due to having higher rates of chromosomal abnormalities in their eggs. This is a normal aging process in women. Males over 40 also have slightly higher rates of infertility due to age but age affects females much more. Other causes are blocked tubes, PCOS, endometriosis and medical issues such as obesity and thyroid disease.
