Jordanian clinic on male infertility



Publication date: 19.02.2021


nfertility is an unusual diagnosis/condition in medicine because it involves a couple instead of a single individual. It is defined as the impossibility of pregnancy after one year of regular unprotected intercourse, if the woman is less than 35 years old. And, if the woman’s age is more than 35 years, the diagnostic time interval is reduced to 6 months. In clinical practice, the term subfertility is also used until the diagnosis of infertility is confirmed by research.

Statistically, 35-40% of infertility is caused by the male factor, 40% by the female factor, and 20% is of unknown etiology.
