: The cause of infertility that is purely age related is due to egg abnormalities. The spindles that hold the chromosomes lined up are fragile and the chromosomes don't separate normally. Eggs have extra or missing chromosomes. The more abnormal the chromosomal abnormality, the less developed the embryo will be. This does not manifest in abnormalities of ovulation.

: : if you O monthly, have sex at the right times you don't get pregnant? If your FSH is normal or borderline, and you produce at least 1 follicle then why doesn't it happen? Is it the egg quality? Is it the bumpy road through the fallopian tubes to uterus? But then the HSG shows clear tubes.
