Is infertility a female problem?


No, fertility is not always a female problem.Both men and women can have problems which causes difficulty for the couple to conceive. About one-third of the infertility problems are due to female factors (like blockage in the tubes or disturbances in ovulation); another one-third are due to male factors (like erection problems or low sperm count); 10-20% are due to combined male and female factors and in the rest of the couples, no cause of infertility is established. So, infertility is not entirely a female’s problem.
