How Common Is Infertility?

For couples who have been trying to conceive and have yet to be successful, it might feel like they are alone in their struggle, especially for those who have friends or family members with steadily growing families. Infertility can seem like a rare problem, but the truth is that it is actually common. Some studies have suggested that after one year of unprotected sex, 12% to 15% of couples were unable to conceive and, after two years, 10% of couples were still unable to have a live-born baby. Additionally, while many might think infertility is a female issue, about 7% of men (4.7 million) are infertile and about 11% of women (6.7 million) of reproductive age experience fertility issues. With millions of people suffering from the inability to conceive, one thing is clear about infertility – you are not alone.

Here are some more helpful statistics regarding infertility:

  • Out of a third of infertile couples, the man is infertile.
  • Out of a third of infertile couples, the infertile partner cannot be identified.
  • Fertility declines with age in both men and women, though the effects of age are generally greater in women.
  • Women in their 30s are about half as fertile as they were in their early 20s.
