INFERTILITY

Infertility is when a couple of reproductive age is unable to conceive after a year or more of regular unprotected intercourse.

It can be primary if no pregnancy has ever occurred or secondary if pregnancy has occurred irrespective of the outcome.

Ovulation induction is part of the patient's management which aims to achieve development of a single follicle and subsequent ovulation in a woman with anovulation.
