The likelihood of achieving a natural pregnancy for a fertile couple is about 20% per each month. With the use of medications to correct ovulatory disorders, intrauterine insemination (IUI) and IVF procedures and surgery to correct anatomical problems, certain infertile couples have a chance of pregnancy similar to that of a fertile couple or even higher.
With patience, a positive attitude and the appropriate treatment many infertile couples can eventually have their target achieved.
