Reproductive Endocrinology

Infertility is defined by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) as a disease of the reproductive system that impairs the body's ability to perform the basic function of reproduction. Although conceiving a child may seem to be simple and natural, the physiological process is quite complicated and depends on the proper function of many factors, including the following, as listed by the ASRM:

  • Production of healthy sperm by the man
  • Production of healthy eggs by the woman
  • Unblocked fallopian tubes that allow the sperm to reach the egg
  • The sperm's ability to fertilize the egg
  • The ability of the fertilized egg to become implanted in the uterus
  • Adequate embryo quality
