The prognosis of a patient with infertility depends on the underlying cause of infertility. The appropriate workup must be performed, and then the appropriate intervention may be used. Prognosis is individualized depending on these results.


Patient Education

Couples should be counseled that the most effective regimen is to perform coitus every 48 hours at mid cycle. For patient education resources, see the Sexual Health Center. Also, see the patient education articles Impotence/Erectile Dysfunction, Erectile Dysfunction FAQs, and Infertility.
