Dr. Adamson explains how common infertility is.

Dr. David Adamson:
Infertility is actually much more common than people think. Overall, about one couple in six will have difficulty conceiving at some time during their life. And of course the percentage of people with difficulty conceiving goes up as women get older so that age 35, about one couple in four will have trouble getting pregnant and by age 40, about one couple in two.
