According to the generally accepted definition of sterility (infertility) a couple is considered to be sterile if a pregnancy was not achieved despite regular intercourse over 1 year. Of course, there is no need to wait for the entire period before seeking medical advice, especially if there are already confirmed or presumed factors that may constitute genuine factors affecting sterility. These include abnormal menstrual cycles, previous episodes of inflammation in the genital region or surgeries.
If factors of this nature are present, simple diagnostic testing and equally simple, conservative therapy may often help attain the goal of pregnancy.
