Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Infertility may also refer to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility, some which may be bypassed with medical intervention.

Fertility awareness methods are used to discern when these changes occur by tracking changes in cervical mucus or basal body temperature.
