Fertility is generally broken down into two basic categories: primary and secondary.

Primary infertility refers to couples that have not been able to successfully conceive after trying for a year or more of unprotected intercourse.

Secondary infertility refers to couples who have successfully conceived in the past, but are unable to achieve another pregnancy.

If you and your partner have been trying to get pregnant for six months to a year or more (or if you are a single woman struggling to conceive while using donor sperm) you may be experiencing medical challenges caused by one or more of the factors listed below.

If you are a single woman or part of a non-heterosexual couple, some of your fertility challenges may be based more in logistics than infertility.
