How Common Is Infertility?

It’s more common than you might think. Fifteen percent of all U.S. couples — 7.5 million people — experience some type of infertility and almost half of those couples end up getting pregnant with the help of doctors or on their own, says Wed MD. Only a mere 1-2 percent of couples are actually sterile.
