What is Infertility?
Infertility is usually defined as not becoming pregnant after a year of trying, but some couples know or suspect they are infertile well before a year is up. For instance, the woman might have irregular periods or not ovulate at all.

When Should I do Something?
The right time to seek help is when you are concerned about your fertility. Often simple tests to check ovulation and sperm quality will give you some clarity on next steps. General guidelines are that you should refer to a fertility specialist if you have been trying to conceive for 12 months without success and the woman is under 35, or refer earlier if the woman is 35 or older.
