Causes of infertility
A couple trying to conceive through regular and unprotected intercourse for at least a year is termed as infertility. There are four requirements to get pregnant:

1) A sperm capable of fertilizing an egg (male factor)
2) An egg capable of being fertilized (ovulation)
3) Open passage to allow the egg and sperm to meet (tubo-peritoneal disease)
4) A uterus to nurture the developing pregnancy (uterine factors)
Failure of conception is the result of the failure of the meeting of the two cells: the egg and the sperm, their union and further development after implantation in the uterus. Hence the cause of inability to conceive could be in the male, in the female, in both or neither (unexplained). The number of couples facing infertility is increasing mainly as because of lifestyle and career oriented attitude.
