After a year of unprotected sex, infertility is commonly characterised as the inability to conceive (or even consider conceiving). Infertility is the term used to describe the inability to conceive, get pregnant, or bring a pregnancy to term. Infertility has several causes, some of which are manageable with medication. A woman is considered infertile if she has tried to get pregnant unsuccessfully for a year without using contraception. A male is regarded as infertile if he has insufficient sperm or sperm of insufficient quality to even attempt fusing with a woman's egg.
